Week 5 - Athletics Day

Our school athletics day was last Tuesday, it was a very windy day. But everyone had so much fun! 

Check out Vonairay and Tai's writing.      
                                         Athletics Day

Clapping and cheering with excitement. Getting ready to pull we spread out, as I hear Mr Lintott say “Ready Set Go”! We start pulling as hard as we could to win . Cheering from the team's Yellow, orange, purple and blue. My feet are sliding through the grass from the other team green pulling it, the long slippery rope is sliding through my hands and giving me sore hands.

My hands are tired from pulling the rope, the bright yellow sun is shinning on my eyes so I can’t really see much but I am trying my best to pull hard. It is annoying because when we pull the rope near our cone the green team pulls it near their cone, so that’s why the game kept on going on and my hands are sore.

The time has come to see who is going to win. The green team is pulling as hard as they can so as we are too. As so the green team won, my hands are red and painful. Green team had done a really good job of pulling as well.

Week 4 - Athletics

Next week is our school athletics day so we have been learning some key tips to improving our athletic ability. Today we worked on high jump. Did you know it is important to keep your run up fast to help you jump high?

We practiced with skipping ropes today with partners who would challenge us. It was a lot less scary using the ropes than trying to jump over the pole that can fall and hurt us!

Check out our technique!
