St Patrick’s 175th Jubilee Celebrations

On Friday our school and parish started to celebrate our 175 jubilee. This means it is 175 years long since we started. Also we had some more celebrations on Saturday,  and Sunday. On Friday after we had been to Mass and dug up the time capsule from when the church turned 150 years old, we had morning tea.

Then the principal said come and sit under the canopy so we can play some games. They split us into groups. At the start of the groups, my team was going to vs my brother’s team but he wasn’t here so we just vs his teammates. I had so much excitement in myself that I looked like I was  a clown out of nowhere.

After everything was finished the teachers started to hand out ice lollies. I was boiling like I was in a desert. They were very nice to eat then.

On Sunday my mum and siblings came to church with me. When we got there I thought all the seats were taken, but when we got inside I went and sat next to my little brother  before Angelina arrived“

We had a long mass but there was lots of lovely singing and it went fast. After that we all went to the hall and did things like singing, dancing and other stuff. It was fun and great to see my friends.

Preparing for Athletics day

After morning tea my classmates and I met  coach Bart on the filed. He  taught us how to sprint and it was a hot day as well. We started to  get ourselves  warmed up and we all got excited. At first we ran on our heels and then toes.

Then  we were  playing a game and it was called ‘sheepdog’.  We used some noodles to round up the sheep and it was so much fun.  Later  it was time for us to do our sprints and we had to run as fast as we could from one side to the other side.

After that we had some foam animals that we had to put on the ground in front of us. We had to try to jump past them.

Finally  at around  twelve o’clock  we got so so hot  and tired  we went back to class. We had learned  something new about  athletics skills and we all  had a lot of fun today.


Animations Blog- scary midnight movie.

We have been making animations on our chromebooks in Gogle slides.I really enjoyed this because I loved making this animation move along with my friends.  My favourite part was when I was creating my characters. My story is about a scary midnight movie and mum and dad  said we could go to the movies and watch it.  We took some popcorn and drinks and even food.

Ki o rahi

Last Thursday we had a visitor who came to our class to teach us a game called

 Ki o rahi. Her name was coach Chelsea and she showed us a video first called the legend of Rahi and Tiara.

Then she said  we were going to play tagging games under the canopy because it was raining. She said we had to be in two teams and one was called Kioma and the other one was called Taniwha. I was in the Taniwha team. We went running all around the canopy but we had so much fun.

I hope we can learn our new game on Thursday and it doesn’t rain .
