Highlights of the Rugby World Cup

There was lots of excitement in the Stadium at Eden Park. Everyone came to watch the opening ceremony. There were fire works and celebrations. John Key and Jonah Lomu were also there. There were lots of face paints and there were lots of flags and banners. After that my family were biting there nails because they were nervous. When the All Blacks got there first try, they screamed and I had to cover my ears. France and New Zealand played the final game. It was a close match. The points were 7 – 8 to the All Blacks. All Blacks won the Rugby World Cup and the 4 million people of New Zealand were happy!

Last Weekend of Holidays

In the weekend I went to Church. When Church was finished, I went to the shops. After that we went home and I watched wrestling. We watched WWE Superstars and after that we watched SMACK DOWN! Then my big brother went out to go to work. When he came back, he came back at six in the morning, then I went to school.

Our Last Swimming Day

Today after Morning Tea 5a swimming group had to go to the pool. We had our togs, towels and caps. Then to line up near the gate and we went inside. We put our towels on the fence which surrounds the pools and put our feet in the warm water in a bucket. We walked up the stairs and went in the pool. When we got into the pool it was warm. We all played a game called 'Salmon- Says.' After our teacher Mr Burton said "Salmon says walk to the side of the wall and put our back on the wall." We played the alphebet game. This is how you play it. If Mr Burton says the leter of your name, you go to the other side of the pool. Then we went back at the other side and we played, 'Captains coming.' Left is port and right is starboard. Then we went outside and went to class.
