Co-operative game

Last week on Friday we were playing a co-operative game.There were five (5) teams.I was in the second team.Angela was the team captain.The aim of the game was to get all of your team to the other side of the hall only using three(3) pieces of cardboard.In my team was Casey, Angela,
Aidan,Tonga and Matthew .T.But on our first try we had newspaper kept ripping.It looked like trash.Miss Alan had to run back to class and get cardboard.The first people to go on were Casey and me.Matthew didn't want to join in .Everyone was shouting and screaming.I nearly fell off but lucky Casey held on to my T-shirt.I was Struggling.Angela was holding on to me.I felt like we were sailing on a ship to another Island.We were trying our best.I felt sorry for Matthew.The winning team was Ala's team.We had to copy their strategy.It worked perfectly for us.We came second in that race.That game was fun.I wish we could play it again someday.The End.

Statistics-Game trial

On Thursday last week the whole class of room 15 went to the hall. I was clueless, I didn't know what we were doing until Miss Squires told us it was for maths. I was still clueless. She told us we had to get into pairs so Angela and I were partners. The first round was a trial and I was the first person to do the trial. My legs were trembling like jelly. Then Miss Squires said "GO".
I could hear the crowd chattering to each other. I was so nervous. I was twisting and turning around with the hockey stick. At one stage I thought I was going to hit a cone but lucky I didn't. Finally I reached the last set of cones. I crashed and banged into cones, but I made it. I was as glad as a hippo who is just having a shower. My time was 43 seconds. My heart was beating really fast.

Lot's of other people banged and had accidents with the cones. Next it was Angela's turn she went slowly and steadily and didn't bump into cones and she made it.You know what they say "Slow and steady wins the race". Her time was 53 seconds. Then it was my second try. This time I went a little faster and I beat my time. This time my time was 43 seconds. I was panting Angela tried to go her fastest this time and her time was 42 seconds. She beat my second try. It was time for my one and only try left. This time I went my fastest. Jane was right in front of me so I tried harder and luckily I beat her. Lepa kept on calling me a cheater because he saw me beat Jane, but I just ignored him. Angela said my time was 33 seconds. I was proud of myself. Angela's last time was 42 seconds again. She was proud of herself too I could tell.
The aim of the game was to twist and turn around the cones without touching them.I liked that game I wish we could play it again someday.
The End.

The best New Years ever!!!!!

When it was New Years I was so excited to see my family. My head felt like it was going to explode with excitement. But first I had to help my cousin fill up the pool. We were going to swim with the next door neighbour. I couldn't wait. The next minute I saw my cousin jumping up and down because he was so excited that we were going to swim in the pool. He looked like he was on a sea-saw.
It took a really long time to fill the pool. It felt like it took a million years to fill it up so I went back inside to check if my family were there and...they were there!!. I was so jiggly I looked like I was dancing. My whole family was there. It was like I was lost in a crowd at a concert.
I went to smell the food my aunties were making. The food smelt Delicious and it was like I was floating on a cloud making my way to heaven. Everyone else felt like that too I could tell. Meanwhile outside I saw my cousin running around as fast as a cheetah .I didn't know why but it was strange.my cousin Maia just woke up.Her hair looked like she had just finished riding a bull.My sister just pushed me out of the way and hugged my cousin.I was fuming.I felt like a bull with steam pouring out of my ears.I said "Hey what about me?It's not fair.But I know that they loved each other dearly so I just crept away silently like a mouse crawling away.I just went to the pool to check on my cousin.I saw the next door neighbour Splashing in the pool.After that Every one went to eat delicious food.Then everyone went home.When I went home I went to check on the water in the pool.It was freezing.It felt like I was frozen in Antarctica.The End.
