Aussie Rules

`“Yes, we are playing Aussie rules today” Do you have AFL training every Thursday? Well room13 does. We have coaches that are really good at playing Aussie rules.

Blustery winds blew into our faces. I was frustrated with the weather was changeable. As we tried to play, the wind got stronger and stronger like a cyclone, we could barely begin.

When the wind was calm, we learnt some skills like a drop punt and bouncing the ball. These skills were to help us learn how to play Aussie rules. Our coaches were making sure that we were doing it properly. The sun came out just as it was time for a warm up called the jumper bumper.

Running and jogging we played kick baseball. The game got boring just as we had to switch over teams. When I caught the AFL ball I started to cheer up.The game got really fun and exciting from then on.

The day was a cool day. When the training was finished, we had learnt so much throughout the afternoon.

Black out day

It was with huge, excitement that I got my dressed for school today. It was Black Out Day. Black Out Day was to show our support for the All Blacks on the opening day of the Rugby World Cup.

Running down the footpath, I shouted "Stop", as I saw my friend. On my way to school, most people I saw were wearing black. Coins jingled in my pocket as I bounced about excitedly - I was going to buy a sausage for my lunch.

Arriving at school, I noticed, that even the teachers were wearing all black. Miss Tito and Miss Va’afusuaga even had black wigs on and also had painted faces. I love it when our whole school gets behind an idea.

At assembly, Mr Burt kept telling stories. They were about the times when he was at rugby game and he was not wearing his hat. Lots of yucky things would fall on his head and even end up in his car. I love Mr Burt’s stories, he is a great storyteller.

For fun, in our classroom we painted some All Black players. Each group found their smallest member and we traced around them. Next, we painted our players black so that they were wearing the All Blacks uniform. It was fun, I like painting.

After morning tea our classrooms all went to the courts to play some rugby games. The sun was shining and the sevens boys had set up some fun looking games. I was in team Russia.

Playing out on the field, the big boys taught us lots of rugby skills. Tackling, kicking and throwing were just some. My favourite game was the tackle bag obstacle course. I loved it because I got to knock Feki over!

Rugby World Cup - Where were you?

Rugby, I don’t care about rugby, We watched something else. Me and Sam went to the Takeaway shop. When we got our Fish & Chips we went home to eat it we went to sleep after that. We didn’t need the R.W.C. to have fun.
