Term Three

This term I have learnt a lot about fractions. I have learnt how to divide, times, plus and take away fractions with different denominators. Through my environmental project I have learnt many statistics about New Zealand birds. In religious education I have learnt about the mystery, power and love of God through the story of David.

Next term I am looking forward to learning about what high school is like. A challenge for next term is learning more about ratios. I am also excited about having a week away for school camp. But first I will enjoy the holidays.

Canoe Polo

Last weekend at the Oamaru town pool the South Island High School canoe polo championships were held. I was lucky enough to view the action. There were mini soccer goals hanging off the ceiling at ends. The players were allowed to use their hands and paddles to control the ball. The goalie held their paddle above their head; as close as they could get to the center of the goal. While the oppisition threw the ball towards the goal.

In April I went to the National Ploughing championships in Palmerston. There were both horses and machines ploughing. I mostly watched the horse ploughing. I found it interesting to see the way farmers would of worked their horse to plough a paddock.

Today I played football at Awamoa Park. My team Saint Josephs  United  played the Awamoa Spurs. We had an exiting game with a player scoring from a corner kick. I played midfield and striker. I had two shots on goal but the goalkeeper was quick to catch them. I really enjoyed the game which ended in a 5-0 win for us.

My Holiday

Last school holidays I had a snowy Autumn holiday in Nasbey. As I entered Nasbey the car was engulfed with snow. I got a bit bored staying inside so I convinced Dad to go biking in the forest. We biked up the 4 wheel drive track to the top of the forest. It was hard work but we didn't get hot. We biked down some mountain bike tracks, which was exciting but challenging. I had an adventurous time. 

Stormy Ride

This afternoon I went horse riding on my horse Copper-Rose. We went along the road to ride in some large paddocks. We went through a pond after much needed encouragement. Copper-Rose was full of energy because of the changing weather. We had a good gallop which she seemed to enjoy. A few raindrops fell on my face so I decided it was time to go home. By the time I got home it had really started to rain. After untacking her and putting her in her paddock I went inside and snuggled up by the fire.

Highlanders Day

Today at school we all dressed up in Highlanders gear, to show our support to our local team. We sung the Highlanders song and waved our flags. In the afternoon some people from North Otago rugby came to see us. We did some passing and kicking drills. Some people received Highlanders flags. I had a fun highlanders day at school.
