Rugby league session's

On Wednesday the 22 of June 2011 Room 22 had gone out for rugby league session’s at the junior court with Sio Siua Taukeiaho. Sio Siua Taukeiaho is an 2011 Vodafone Junior warrior squad.

Soi Siua Taukeiaho had put us into groups of fore and I got put in team 4. He had been teaching us how to zigzag with the ball in our hands and sprint back competing agents another team.

When I had a run it was really difficult for me because I had keep bumping into my team mats but when it come to sprinting back it was really easy because I am fast but what went wrong was when I had gone for the try I had knocked it on so we had not got the final point.

Soi Suia Taukeiaho took us over to the next exercise that was cord kicking tinnies. What we had to do was kick the ball above the shoulders so the opponent could be able to catch the ball. If you touch the ball then drop it you will have to go out to the side line.

When someone from the other group had kicked the ball it had hit my face and my stomach and it had hurt because I was not looking out for the ball when it was coming.

If you were playing would in joy playing Rugby league sessions because I know I did.


During Geometry this term we learnt about shapes. In our art we drew circles to make a design. Once we had made our design we coloured in our design with colouring in pencils.
Sadly I didn't finish my design but here is Awhina's design which she completed.

Room 22 have been learning about netball skills like drills and stretches. We have been doing it at the junior courts. We got started with a whole lot of dynamic stretches and drills with Emma. Emma was our instructor for netball training.

We were warming up with the dynamic stretches and drills. Some of the names were high knees. High knees is trying to lift your knees as high as you can. Our second stretch is kicking our own butts with our own feet and the last stretch was grape vine and that was really hard.

At last we were having a corner ball game of netball. It was really hard because the other team had very good players. There was team one and team two, I was in team two. Room 22 was trying their hardest to get the most scores. That was the first time I had ever played netball.
