SBW entered the stadium with confidence. Anxiously waiting for the ball Sonny Bill stepped the opposition. Accurately off-loading the ball SBW ran towards the try line as the crowd was cheering for him. SBW dived for the winning try.

Black Out Day

I got dressed for school on friday. Today was Black Out Day. This was to show our support for the All Blacks on the opening day of the Rugby World Cup.

Running down the footpath as I saw my friend ,coins jingled in my pocket as I bounced excitedly - I was going to buy a sausage for my lunch.Most people wore Black.

Arriving at school, I noticed, to my surprise, that even the teachers were wearing black. Miss Tito aswell as Miss Va’afusuaga even wore wigs and had paint on their face. I love it when our whole school gets behind an idea.

At assembly Mr Burt kept telling stories about the times when he was not wearing his hat and yucky stuff fell on his hair. I love Mr Burt’s stories.Then It was finished.

` In our classroom we traced around a small person.As all of us finished it was time to paint.Using different colors to put on our work we left our things to dry.

After morning tea team three and four went out to the courts to play some rugby games.We all were looking forward to the activities that the sevens boys set up for us.I could not do any more exercise after kicking balls and playing touch.jmiukjm mjmnj m

I had such a great black out day and I really hope that the All Blacks can win tonight. My brother is supporting Tonga.NZ is going to win their match.


Mmm huele los Alfajorcitos tan riquisimo. Wow! The Alfajorcitos are so delicious.
Rm 13 made a Argentinian treat on Thursday.

In Argentina so many kids eat lots of Alfajorcitos. The Alfajorcitos is a treat in Argentina. these snacks are very nice.

On Thursday Miss King brought some biscuits and a jar filled with dulce de leche to school. It was so sticky and crunchy. We squashed the biscuits together to make a sandwich. Mmmmm the Alfajorcitos are nice they are like my favourite Argentinian treats. The smell of the dulce de leche was great.

Aussie Rules

`“Yes, we are playing Aussie rules today” Do you have AFL training every Thursday? Well room13 does. We have coaches that are really good at playing Aussie rules.

Blustery winds blew into our faces. I was frustrated with the weather was changeable. As we tried to play, the wind got stronger and stronger like a cyclone, we could barely begin.

When the wind was calm, we learnt some skills like a drop punt and bouncing the ball. These skills were to help us learn how to play Aussie rules. Our coaches were making sure that we were doing it properly. The sun came out just as it was time for a warm up called the jumper bumper.

Running and jogging we played kick baseball. The game got boring just as we had to switch over teams. When I caught the AFL ball I started to cheer up.The game got really fun and exciting from then on.

The day was a cool day. When the training was finished, we had learnt so much throughout the afternoon.
