Filled with excitement I was ready to learn a sport called Kiwi kick or AFL. It is a Australian sport.. We had to learn how to play. We learnt how to pass the ball and learnt how to kick the ball.

There was lots of things we learnt. But there was this thing called laces away from faces. Our coach was Sam but he said to call him Sandwich.  Then sam asked if we wanted to  play game call octopus but with a ball and we said yes.

Lots of game we play. After that we play we had to go back to class for home time.

Taonga Time

Every Friday all of the year 8s and 7s do Taonga time. There are 7 groups. I’m with Ms Va’afusuaga the sports teacher. We mostly play games out on the hard court or field. It is great exercise.

Last week Ms Vaafusuaga was sick so we stayed in class and went on Maths Whizz. It was an alright time.I like going to Ms Va’afusuaga because I like playing  sports. She always takes us out to play a game or we talk about NRL.

Van Gogh and Matisse

We are learning about the art of very good painters. The artists names were Van Gogh and Henri Matisse. Their paintings are very bright and kind of dark. They had different  styles of art.

First I looked at Van Gogh's painting. His painting  was a sunflower. The colours that he used were yellow, brown,black and orange but lots of yellow for brightness. Some of the sunflowers looked dull and dead.

Room 21 did Matisse art first. His was call La Musique.The painting had two ladies in it one was playing a guitar and I think the other one was have a time and a big plant at the back. But the painting  had lots of bright colours that meant that he like to use bright colours. His painting was hard to copy but I still draw it.
