There were competitive ones: Freestyle x2 boys and x2 girls, Backstroke x2 boys and x2 girls, Relay x2 boys and x2 girls.
Fun activities: Flutter board, Noodle tow, Bucket relay, Seal relay, Clothes relay and Class under over.
I swam in all the competitive ones and Noodle tow, Bucket relay, Seal relay and Class under over.
It was a great day.

Painting ratios

In Room 25, we have been learning about ratios. We had an activity where we had to mix primary colors together and see what new color it made. If we liked that new color then we had to put down the record of how many reds, blues....we put to make the new color.
We had to first put duct tape down on the paper to make any shape we liked. Then we added our chosen colors to it. When the paint had dried, we slowly peeled the tape off.
Here is my art:

You can make your own ratio art too.

My visual description

In Room 25, we have been learning how to visualize a description. Miss Mills gave us one called the Nogard and we had to draw what we thought it looked like. If you want to know what the Nogard is, then go onto our class blog at
Then we had to make our own and we had to get people to draw it.
Here is my description of my animal, please draw it to get the picture. I hope you can get my animal right!

What is my animal?
My animal has a big circle shaped head.
My animal has upside down triangle ears.
My animal has circles for the outline of the eyes. Inside the eyes, there are two smaller circles. These are the pupils of the eyes.
My animal has a small upside down triangle between the eyes, this is the nose.
My animal has two small curves going outwards at the bottom of the nose.
My animal has another two curves going inwards for the mouth.
My animal has a small, round heart shape in between the mouth. This heart shape is the tongue.
My animal has a long oval like body. You can choose whether the body tips slightly between horizontal and vertical.
My animal has short legs and small paws at the end of each leg.
Finally, my animal has a small tail peeking from behind the body.

Do you know what my animal is?

Here are some pictures:

Please draw it and maybe post it onto your blog and send me the link so I can visit your blog and see what your pictures look like.
You can make your own visual description too.

Athletics day

On Tuesday, Kauri and Puriri team had Athletics day.
We walked to Love lock track in Sandringham road. Love lock track is next  Weasly Community center.
We had high jump, long jump, shot put, discus and track events. For the track events there were 800 meters, 400 meters, 200 meters and 100 meters.
The girls did the track events first and the boys did the other activities.
First, the girls had to run the 800 meters. It's optional to run this round. 800 meters is twice around the track and it is very tiring.
After 800 meters, the girls did 100 meters. 100 meters isn't optional, you had to run it.
After that it was the 200 meters which is about 1/4 of the track.
Last of all there was 400 meters. Only year 6 got to do it and you choose whether to do it or not.

I came 1st in 800 meter and 400 meters. I also came 2nd in 200 meters.
When the girls  finished running the track, we switched so the boys were running in the track events and the girls were doing the other events.
The first activity the year 6 went to after the track events was long jump then shot put, high jump and discus.
I got 3rd in long jump and second in shot put.

Here are some pictures of Athletics day:

I really enjoyed Athletics day.
My favorite event was running 800 meters.
