Planting

Two classes went to plant a hedge. I was in one of those classes. First my group took off the black plastic that covered the base of the stalk and the earth around it. Then we placed the plant in the hole. We took clumps of soil and crumbled it up then dropped it in the hole. We repeated that until the hole was full. We hope the plants will grow into a hedge.

Last Wednesday it was Cross-Country. Half the school went to Rutherford to run on their track but I stayed at school to run on the Carlton track. While I was running I could see the green grass squashed by people running on it.  My feet pounded the hard earth, as I went down the steep slope clumps of dirt fell slowly off it. I could feel the wind blowing in my face, could hear dad cheering my name. I could see someone in front of me. I went a little bit faster and overtook her. I could hear the breeze whistling in my ears. Before I knew it, it was over.

Today the Duffy Theatre came to the school. When my class came in, I noticed that there were three people two were women and the other one was a man. They were singing the the song how far I’ll go from moana. Once my class had sat down in the hall I started singing ,but not for very long, then the Duffy song. They started a song I didn’t know until all the classes were in the hall. First they started showing us a song they were going to use. Then the act which was clicking your fingers from one side then another side then crossing one arm over your chest and then the other arm then showing your muscles. We sang the song again doing it with the actions this time. Then they started the show. The man in the show was called Duffy. It was hot he was holding three books and he said,I’m gonna read in the shade under that tree but the tree  moved when he walked over to it. He ran after it then it moved another direction and then another direction. Just then a woman arrived she had a blue cape and they went around the world saving a koala from a bush fire, make a storm go away blow a cyclone away. Then there is a scene with mother earth holding dead roses. Then they go to a different planet where the super heroes boss lived and she liked twirling her velvet sparkling cape.

Gymnastics

Last Monday I went on a class trip to Gymnastics. We walked to get there I didn’t care though Gymnastics wasn’t far from school. When we got there we had to take our shoes, socks and jerseys off.

Our instructor told us to sit on the air mat. I stood up quietly and walked quickly to the air mat. Most people ran or bounced but I just kept walking the same way I started. Soon after I sat down the instructor told us what we were going to do.

She told us she was going to teach us some positions.Then told us to spread out. First she taught us how to do a tuck position which was like hugging your legs but your legs were tucked up close to you and your hands only went up to your knees and no further. Then she showed us the  pike position which is like sitting with your legs straight. The last one was the straddle position which is like your about to do a cartwheel.

The favorite thing that I learnt was a handstand. To help learn it the first thing we did was a donkey kick which is on your hands then very quickly tucking your legs in and then shooting them out straight. If you get really good you do that again but this time  bring your legs up so your toes point to the ceiling.

When we left it was raining so the teacher put up some umbrellas and gave them to us. There were three children under each umbrella.

His big gigantic body looks down upon his friends. Shrek’s skin is as green as grass. His mouth looks like a juicy fresh watermelon with huge teeth. His eyes look like brown sphere shaped pieces of clay sitting in white play-do. His brown furry eyebrows look like animal’s skin stuck to his forehead. He has spoon shaped ears stuck to either side of his head. Shrek's fingers look like slime. His nose looks like a pig’s except green.

His big gigantic body looks down upon his friends. Shrek’s skin is as green as grass. His mouth looks like a live watermelon with teeth inside. His eyes look like round peaces of clay sitting in a pool of white play-do. His brown furry eyebrows are very close to his forehead.
