Swimming at YMCA

At school my class walked down to YMCA for swimming Lessons. As we went into the changing room to change into our swimming togs lots of kids from Glen Tailor were still changing into their uniform. After I was in my swimming togs I walked to rinse myself, there were some cold showers and some warm showers. All the warm showers were already used so I had to rinse at the freezing cold shower. Soon it was my turn to freestyle in the pools, I was so nervous. As soon as I pushed my feet against the wall to go I felt confident. I was so relieved when I finished swimming! I love swimming

Making the Tallest Tower

On the first week of term 2 we got told from our teacher to make a tall tower out of paper. I chose to work with my friends, Zion, Turuhira and Dante. Mr S gave us a meter of tape, glue, big pieces of paper and a pair of scissors. When we started building our tower it started out rough because the tape was sticking to our fingers,The tape finally came off and Zion had an idea. Her idea was to stand up four circular legs at the bottom with one leg laid down at the top, we decided to keep on doing it until it was tall but our plan didn't work. Time ran out and we still hadn't come up with another idea. In the last minute we thought of an idea but it was too late, we didn't have time to make it.

As we watched the other groups bring their tower to the mat we were shy because we were almost the only ones that didn't have a proper tower. Mateo’s group had the tallest and strongest tower out of all the groups in our class so they won.

Having an Awesome Holiday in Hastings

During my Holiday me and my family went down to Hastings to spend our holiday with my oldest brother. I was really glad to see him because I haven't seen him for ages. He looked so different that I didn't even recognise him standing at the airport, waiting to pick us up. They slept in a Town Lodge Motel and it looked really cool. There was a huge swimming pool at the back of it and it was so big. My brother told me I could swim in it whenever I wanted to. Saturday morning was my last day there, the 1st of May. My brother took me shopping for new clothes at the Mall, he is really kind. I was very happy that I got to see my brother again.
