Our Touch Teams

This term we had many sports, but I trailed for the all girls touch team. I made it into the team so as some other girls. So we went to the Eastern Touch Tournament, we played 8 games that day just with a few practices the boys and girls touch team from our school took out the competition. As well as we did the Touch games weren't over. Then in 2 weeks time we have to set off to the Auckland Touch Tournament that's were we play the best teams in Auckland. So for the past 2 weeks both teams trained really hard and learnt a lot of many amazing skills preparing for the big tournament coming up. Both teams are so ready for a really hard Tournament. So wish us luck, and hopefully we do well. Auckland Touch Tournament here Pt England comes.

Thanks to Rachael and Gabby.

My Dream ‘ Outta This World‘ Holiday

Brring … ‘ screamed the alarm. I tried to ignore it. I wanted to stay in my dream. My dream ‘ outta this world ‘ holiday.

In my dream holidays I would want to go to Pluto, but sadly if I launch off today I would be 22, by the time I get there. When I arrived at Pluto in my Spacecraft , It was really cold and I was floating around everywhere. Seeing that Pluto is made up from 70% of rock and 30% of water ice, it's also one of the smallest planet in the solar system.

I felt like a balloon floating and jumping around, “HELLO !” Hearing no one at all. Jumping around seeing the sight. But all I could see was Stars Craters and lots of rocks.

Thank you Tracey and Ocean

An Easier Way To Remember The Planets

This term we have been studying about the Solar System. So in class we had to make an easier way to remember the planets and the order it is in. So I was put into a group and we all came up with a ' Mnemonic ' for the Planets and to make it much better to understand we put it into a slideshow. Below is the slideshow.

Challenging Run

Running a 3.5 km run, I was wondering when it was going to end. Running past Ms Tito she said “ you have a third to go “ , I was hoping it was almost finish.

While I was running I came across some really sharp turns. As I was running the sharp turns I slipped twice.
As I was running though the bush there were really huge and deep. So it was really hard to run.

When I was running through the Pt England Reserve there were lots of muddy patches. It was really hard to run through the muddy parts. It is hard to get out of and sometimes you get suck in them.

When I was approaching the finish line, I was huffing and puffing all the way I ran past Mrs Lagitupu and I ran through the gap and ran towards Mrs Nua with the microphone in her jacket. Saying and coming to the finish line in second place for the year 8 girls is April.
