Recount, Vainikolo

WALT: write a recount on our Kiwi Sports session

                          Snag Golf
Today we played snag golf in the school hall with Danny who was our coach. He taught us how to use a putter to hit a tennis ball over the snag board.

First, we had to hold the putter correctly. Then we had to stand in the hoop with our feet pointing towards the putting board. We had to swing the putter in a tik tok motion like the clock and then hit the ball softly over the snag board.

After that we had a small competition to practice the skills we had learnt. It was fun competing against each other and we all enjoyed the first session of snag golf with coach Danny.

My Favourite Movie Characters

My favourite movie characters are Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee because they are good actors and fighters.

I like Jackie Chan because he is funny. I like Bruce Lee because he is a good  fighter in his movies. He has good techniques and they both have the ability and strength.

Jackie Chan is funny to me and  he is entertaining. He has a range of favorite movies like Rush Hour 1,2 and 3. They are my favourite funny movies.

Bruce Lee is strong and muscled up and has a cool smile and I like his abs. I like one of his movies  called Feast of Furry where he has to find his friends and in the end he finds his friends but they are covered in ice. Then he fights them and he wins.
