During swimming we had to follow instructions.  The swimming lessons helped us move our arms and breath at the right times.

We can swim away from dangers and it helps us learn to keep ourselves safe incase we drowned. This is us doing freestyle in the pool.
When we freestyle we swing our hands one at a time and kick our legs to make bubbles like a boiling pot of bubbles.



On Wednesday 16th of March we went to Otara Park to play cricket. We were so happy to be there. We played against many Otara schools. The girls team WON 1 game and the boys team WON 6 games. Luckily the boys team won the trophy but the girls team came 8th.

On the bus we were tired when we were going home from Waiheke. When we were there we had sport, the games we played were touch and cricket. We had ice cream to cool us down and we had rides too.We had a nice cool swim in the beach then we got changed. And some of us went on the tractor rides too.

Eruera and Dei'Shan

Everyone in Room 9

When we got to school the senior and middle school class packed their bags to go on our exploring trip to Waiheke Island. When we got there we went to look at the cows and sheep it was cool. After that we went for a bush walk it was fun but it took a bit long. After that we had something to eat, it was a hamburger and  then we got ready to have a swim it was awesome and then we got out and we got changed. We played sport and went for a ride on  the tractor, we went slow and fast. Later on we had some ice-cream the flavors were mango, chocolate and vanilla. It was yum. The the time was up really quickly and we had to leave. We said thank you to Uncle Bruce for a wonderful day!

Traveling to Waiheke

On Friday we went to Waiheke Island. Everyone was exploring the ferry, it was windy and a little bit cold.
This is when we saw the cows at the barn yard. This is the youngest cow out of the other cows. The lady from Waiheke took some hay from the cows for us to touch and smell. The children saw the black cow do its poop in front of them. As you can see little girl is having her delicious stinky breakfast.


Here are a whole lot of sheep. The sheep were going to the other side because they were scared. Then they had to get a handsome or pretty hair cut. We got to keep some of the wool. 

Everyone decided to have a whole class photo on the upper hill. We were half way there but there was a long path all the way to the beach. But it went really quickly for Room 9. Some kids from Room 9 wanted to walk and do exercise all the way down to the beach and Room 9 never gives up at all.
