On Monday straight away after morning tea my maths class goes to the hall  for basketball. My coaches names are Vinnie and Shanice. We sat down, Vinnie holds a basketball and shows us some skills. After that it’s time to have fun.  

The skills I have learnt are how to shoot properly. I have  learnt to catch the ball and pass the ball. I use my left hand to dribble the ball. One game we played was called golden child. Boys go on one side and girls go on the other side for competitions. Boys throw the ball in hoop and the girls had to run. If I get the ball in the hoop I yell “STOP’’ and the girls have to stop. Then it is the next person’s turn.

When I finish basketball I feel tired and hot. My class puts their hands in a  circle and we shout “BASKETBALL” and everyone lifts up their arms. It is  fun to play basketball.

rice safety pins

This morning  Miss Lavakula told the year five and sixes to put their chromebooks on the table and sit on the mat in a big circle. There were 6 pieces of paper and 6 bowls of rice with pins inside it. Six blindfolds to cover your eyes so  you can’t see.  

First to put the blindfolds on to play were me, Andrew, Tavake, Isaac, Shelly and Jennifer. I was nervous because I was first, it was scary. When the 1 minute started, I heard a beep. Then I had to find the pins inside the rice. It was very hard because the pins were small and I kept dropping them. After 1 minute the beeper made a beeping noise, that meant my turn was finished. Andrew got 15 pins, I  got zero.
