Have you ever had a party at the swimming pools before? By Alessandra

It was a cool, sunny day on Saturday the 27th of March, so my family and went to the swimming pools in Panmure because it was my cousin birthday.



When we arrived there, we changed into our togs quick like a rocket. Then we ran to the pools as fast as we could because it was filled with lots of people. Then we played some ball games. We passed the ball  back and forth to each other. When we were passing the ball, my cousin Danny threw the ball at me and it hit my face. It hit me so hard that I almost cried.


After a while, I felt better so I went to line up for the water slide. There was a long queue so it took me a long time to get to the top. When it was finally my turn, I felt really excited because it took a long time to reach the front.


When the light turned green, I went down the slide very fast. When I came down from the slide I was feeling hungry, but before we after we could eat some food, we sang the happy birthday song to Jess. After that, ate some food. We had ice cream, hot dogs, hot chips, yummy cake and some cold drinks. The food was very delicious and yummy. Then we had a nice, cold shower before it was time to head home. We had a lovely drive home without any traffic.


I had a very relaxing time with my family and I really enjoyed going on the slides. I hope I’ll be able to try the other slides next time.

Rippa Rugby is fun! By Mary

Today my class and I played Rippa Rugby. I was excited because I love playing this game at home with my cousins and I really like it. Our coach’s name is Hamish and Hamish is the coach for the Marist Rugby Club.


First we played a game called Rippa Rush. Coach Hamish split us into yellow and green teams. I was playing for the yellow team. When the green team had the ball, I tried to take it but I couldn't because they were all running so fast. When it was the green team’s turn, Punipuao caught the ball and ran away with the ball fast. I couldn't get her because she is a good runner.

I had fun playing Rippa Rugby. My favourite part was when I ran fast away from the green team and scored a try.I really love playing Rippa Rugby.

Learning intention: We are learning to follow the structure of a recount.
Success criteria: I know I can this when I write an orientation, followed by the events and then a conclusion for our first Rippa Rugby session.
