running through the mud

Squish sqoish running into the mud it felt like my ankles had heavy metal strap around them. It was like gooey,slimy,jelly as I was struggling to move my feet through it.

Life Education Caravan

For the four 3 weeks Room 22 have been going to the Life Education Caravan. We have learnt that we have different kind of choices that we have of consequences. Lots of bad choices lead us to cancer and it is not just by smoking it by some other things aswell. Our session with Life Education is over. And we had lots of fun and we enjoyed going there for the past 3 weeks.


On Thursday last week I was feeling pretty happy because there were two instructors who had come to Pt England to teach us some basketball skills. Unfortunately for me I had to be the photographer because of my knee injury. So I watched and was ready with the camera to capture some of the action. They introduce their names to us and their names are Tie and Shane. they gave us some rules and we had to follow them as they told us to get in a line of five groups facing the white wall. Once we were in our lines Tie and Shane gave us a ball to each line. Now it was time to do some techniques skills. Then we ran up to Shane and Tie as we were bouncing the ball. Once we got up to the instructors we did a jump stop and then a pivot as we count one two and then passed it back to the line. After that we had to stop what we were doing and we weren't aloud to bounce the ball when he was speaking. When he was finished talking he told us that we were playing a game vs boys and girls. But the girls had to go in the middle of the court and the boy have to tag us with the ball. Then it was the boys turn to be in the middle and all the girls have to tag them with the ball, then it was time for us to head back to class and get ready for morning tea time.
