Kiwi Sport

KIwi Sport - Softball

During Softball today, we learnt the rules of the game. There were two teams. One team was fielding and the other was batting.  My group fielded first. then we swapped over. To remember how to hit the ball, we made up a chant...

"Door knocking knuckles, bat by your ear, eyes on the ball, stomp on the bug, squish the bug, then swat the fly."

The rules while using the bat:

  • Look around your surroundings before swinging the bat.
  • Don't throw the bat.
  • Don't run with the bat.
  • Don’t use the bat until the coach tells us too.
  • And definitely do not hit anyone with it!

Our team won in the end with 49 points, and the other team got 31 points. I felt very excited to hit the ball, that’s probably why I missed it twice. But I still got the chance to run around all the bases two times. And I was kind of proud of that. I had a lot of fun, and I hope my class had fun too.

Kiwi Sport - Softball

For todays Kiwi Sport we had Softball. We played a quick warm up game. Then we played another game called Skatter Ball. It was simple. There were 2 teams. One team  battied and the other one was fielding. My team was fielding. After everyone had a turn batting, it was our turn. For batting, there were 6 simple rules to remember. Those rules were:
  • Door knocking knuckles
  • Bat by your ear
  • Eye on the ball
  • Step on the bug
  • Squish the bug
  • And swat the fly.

The safety rules we had to follow were:
  • Check your surroundings
  • Do not throw the bat down
  • Only get the bat when the coach asks you to.

This is  what we had for softball today. I really enjoyed playing with my classmates.

Trip to Te Tuhi

Trip to the Art Gallery

Today Room 8 went to the Te Tuhi Art Gallery in Pakuranga. We first went to the Art  room for the Art Lesson with Charlotte. The instructor asked us to  draw 2 technologies we used  now and 2 technologies we used in the olden days.

Next we went around the Art Gallery to look at some hidden Art Work. Then we went outside to see this tall sculpture. After that she sat us down in a small spot and talked to us about the sculpture outside. Soon after that we thanked Charlotte and came back to school.

Kiwi Can

Kiwi Can
Today we went to our first Kiwi Can lesson. We learnt about the  four core  values called  respect, integrity, honesty and caring.

The lesson was started with an energiser..Then we went outside for a game on the four core values. When we came inside, we got in groups and did a skit on each of the four core values.

The  catchphrase for the lesson  was “Kiwi Can says, I show respect, you should too,  respecting our school is what we do”  At the end we sang our short goodbye song.
