  • Orienteering is a sport where you have to think very much and you can play it when you have a broken arm or if you’re in a wheelchair.
  • In orienteering you're only allowed to use a map when you're in primary and use a compass when you are in high school.
  • In orienteering you navigate to the places on the map. 
  • In orienteering you have to work as a team because if you don’t you might lose and let your team down.

Howick Village Historical Trip

Wow! on a very funny weather day we went on a trip to Howick Historical Village. My favorite part was when we were playing the parlour games. We had to stand in two lines, one was for the girls and the other line was for the boys. We were waiting for Mrs Dodd to come and tell us to go inside the house. Once we got inside the house we had to sit down and wait for Mrs Dodd to come and split us up into two groups.

We all had to stand in the two teams that we were given. Our team was called the Lakers and Taiwan’s team was called the Dragons. The first game we played was the string game, what we had to do was we had to put the string above our head and try to make it go down to the bottom of our feet and pass it on to the next person. Everyone was jumping up and down to see who was going to win the first game. It ended up that we won the first game. In the second game we played ‘ball and neck’, Mrs Dodd gave us a ball each that we had to use. We had to put it under our chin and the other person had to get it off you with their chin. Some people were being immature because they had to get the ball off girls and boys had to get it off girls.

The last game we played was the blind-folded game. We had to put the blind fold on a person and make sure they couldn’t see. Mrs Dodd gave us a cushion to hold and we had to spin around in a circle and we had to drop the cushion in front of someone. We then had to sit down where-ever we put the cushion down and say “squeek piggy squeek”. The person behind them had to say something that sounded like a pig.

After the bell started to ring and that meant we had to go to lunch. Before we went to lunch we got to take a look around the humongous house, we had to follow Andrew. We first went to see the little rooms, then we went upstairs where I liked the most because we got higher and higher and Andrew frightened Savelio. We went back downstairs and we went outside and stood in two lines to go back to where we were eating to have lunch with everyone else.

My favorite thing thing from term two was basketball because when we played the three games it was challenging and we had to vs all the other teams.
I found the game where we had to run and put the ball under our legs while we were running the hardest.
I enjoyed the most shooting the ball into the hoop because I was always nervous and scared I might miss the ball, but I didn’t.

Term 2 typing challang.

Holy Spirit

These symbols stand for the Holy Spirit.

Fire stands for when Moses went to the mountain and the bush was burning and God was talking to him from the bush.

Water stands for when Moses put his stick out and the ocean went into two parts.

Wind stands for when the air rushed through the room at Pentecost and it was the Holy Spirit and the tongues of fire.

Wow on a Tuesday morning we were getting ready to go to basketball. I was excited because we were going to have basketball for our kiwi sports for eight weeks.

Once we got into the court they started to tell us what to do. After that coach Bruce picked our teams, the teams names were lakers, power rangers, bulls and New Zealand breakers. My team was the lakers.
The first game we played we had to run and bounce the ball and go around the cone with one hand and my team won. The next game we played was when we had to run and get our cones and run back, we won again. The last game we played was the game I liked because we finally  got to shoot the ball into the hoop.

My favorite  part was when we did the last game because we got to
shoot it into the hoop.
