Recount of Sailing

“Everyone come here!” our instructor yelled out. So we all went and stood in front of him. He was a good looking guy with brownish long hair, light brown eye colour and his name was Reuben.  

Screenshot 2015-11-14 at 6.17.49 PM.pngYear 6, 7 and 8 at Saint Pius was so lucky to have the opportunity to have a go at sailing for FREE at Kohimarama beach! I was so enthusiastic to have a go because this was my first time. So we stood in front of Reuben while he was telling us what to do next, which was wearing our life jackets and another jacket outside to keep us warm. When I saw the wind crashing onto the waves, I knew that this is going to be fun because the stronger the wind the funnier it will be for us to race. So then we got to the sandy part and our instructor told us the rules. My partner and I were not listening to what Reuben was explaining to us so we just didn't bother.

Later on, we all learned the rules so we dragged and pull our little boat into the water. Lupe was my partner so we got into the little boat together and the race started. Firstly, we were so nervous because first both of us don’t know how to swim, second the sea was so deep, and third we were not sure with what we were doing because we weren't paying attention. However, we tried our best to control the boat and we did a remarkable job because we came first! We were so amused but then suddenly the boat flipped upside down. Lupe and I started guffawing with excitement while we were in the water and also turning our boat upwards. Then we continued sailing to where we raced first then we turned and went to the other end where we started. We went around the Kohimarama beach how many times in a circle and we had a lot of entrainment.
While we were sailing there were laughter and different kind of emotions everywhere. I had so much fun having a go at sailing and I wish to have a go another day when I'm free. My partner and I learned so much things about sailing and it was all from Reuben. Afterwards, we got to have a small amount of time to have a swim. Mr Slade and William helped us organised and clean the boats. We all helped clean the boats and put them gently into the trailer. Afterwards, we got change and headed back to school.

Sailing is a great activity for different kind of people to try out because it is so interesting and you’ll have a lot of enjoyments!

Kiwi Sport - Touch

"Everyone line up outside!" our teacher yelled. Room 7 all went together outside lined up and walked straight onto the field. We got to meet our instructor again which her name is Katie. She is an amazing instructor because she supports us to be good in touch and to try our best efforts. Today as one of the best time at touch. Every and each student in Room 7 got to have a turn being an attacker or a defender. We were split into groups and we all worked as a team. Touch isn't my thing but I tried my best to participate and try my best efforts because I didn't want to let anyone down in my group. We did a lot of running, passing, stepping and many more. "Keep the great work girls!" our instructor stated. We were so proud of ourselves so we kept doing what we did. I can not wait for next week because we will be playing a real game of touch and I will be contributing into different things that us girls haven't done before.

PAT Math Test

This morning we had PAT math test. I was so excited about it in the morning, however when I saw the questions I was so lazy to figure out the answer. But I managed to try my best and answer every and each questions. Some of the questions were very challenging for me but I also managed to re-read the questions and answer them. When I looked around the classroom I saw confusing faces and some of the students were distracting the student beside them. I sat by myself on a table which didn't bother me because I didn't got distracted. I tried my very best to make progress and to achieve my goals. We only had 45 minutes to finish our test which was great so I could take my time going back and looking through my answers. "Times up!", our reliever yelled. I was so confident in what I had put down and I am so proud of myself because I think that I've made progress and improved more.

Sharing my Experience at Touch

Learn: To Share What I Have Learned This Morning 

In this picture, it shows that we were listening to the instructions. Today was a remarkable day trying out an amazing sport call Touch. Behind this picture there were rugby balls and cones everywhere and also everyone had so much fun. I enjoyed playing it and I learned so many things about it. We learned the rules and how to play it. Touch isn't one of my favourite sport, however I got to like it more. This amazing game is very challenging for me which is more better because I love to challenging other people. We were divided into two equal teams and we had to challenge each other stepping them and trying to pass but mostly working as a team or a group.
