Aspiring Hockey Coaches

On Thursday some of the Year 3 kids in Room 9 did hockey with Nitin from Hockey Manawatu.  Georgina and Millie were hockey coaches and helped show the kids what to do - how to hold the hockey stick and how to hit the ball!  The number one rule is to keep your hockey stick down!  We loved being hockey coaches, it was fun!

Aspiring Hockey Coaches

                       We are hockey coaches!
            This means we have to teach little kids how to play hockey.
                      First we are going to tell you how to hold a hockey stick.
                  Holding the hockey stick is the same if you are right or left handed - the left hand on top and right on the botton of the grip.
                      The number one rule of playing hockey is keep your hockey stick on the ground!
                        We love coaching kids but it is hard!

X Country Training the Kiwi Iwi Way!

Here in Kiwi Iwi we did our first strength warm up, we helped each other to get up the 
tree then we played.
Then the teacher said its time to walk cross country.
Once we did the walking we did some skipping around the school field. Then we jogged, but most of all we did it!

The Net and the Ball

Finally we can play our neatball game! We have six people in our team and five on the court at one time. There is one center player, two defence and two attack. Each goal is one point. Netball is a fun game but it gan get sweaty at times and tiring.

Our First Basketball Game

Our first basket ball game was amazing.  We got so exhausted that we were puffing by the time we got out of the stadium!!!!!!!! Do you know you get two points when you scrore a basket in basket ball??  You wear a bib and they are certain colours.  WE GO FOR GOLD!!!!!!!!!

Self Portraits

In Kiwi Iwi /room 9 we decided to do self portraits./ We first started off by getting a piece of large paper and using glue and gluing on little scraps of news paper.  After we glued on the news paper we then outlined ourselves.  Then we painted our skin colour and we drew on our face and accessories.  Then we told the teacher what our hobby was.  It was a master piece of art, it doesn't matter if it looks weird!

Getting Ready for the School XCountry

In the xcountry we do lots of running but first you have to practice it!
We usually run around the field 4 or 5 times, it is really exhausting.
But even before that we do drills on the quad  eg. high knees, skipping, loopy arms and jogging (gives away the energy)!  Now we are ready for cross country.
