On Tuesday afternoon Room 5 and 6 went out to the fields to learn a sport called ‘Aussie Rules.”
It was a new kiwi sport for me. I learnt how to kick the rugby shaped ball and also catch it. We played fun warm up games.
We all got into three groups and when the instructor blew the whistle we had to make a shape that they call out. My favourite shape was making a tower. It was hard but fun.
After our warm up games we got into our serious mode to play ‘Aussie Rules.’ I was in the “Tigers” and we played against the “Lions.” It was a long and hard game but at the end we lost.
Aussie Rules is an awesome game and I enjoyed it a lot. I hope we can play this more often.
