The Amazing Race! (Triathlon)

Yesterday we had our Year 3 Triathlon/Biathlon.  Everyone swam, biked and ran until they were puffed!  Below is Jade's poem about it:


I'm ready for this!
My go now,
I'm really nervous.

Away you go!
3 laps of the pool,
jumped out, 
raced up the hill.

I slipped on my shoes,
jumped on my bike,
starting to pedal,
faster and faster,
finished 3 laps!

I ran for my life,
finished my 3 laps,
ran to the finish line,
4th place,
High five!

Sprinkles

Today Harlan bought his rabbit, Sprinkles, to visit our class!


Snow white rabbit,
ruby red eyes,
 floppy ears,
 sniffling nose.

Small jumping movements,
Nibbling quickly on carrots,
Trying to jump out,
Wanting to be free!

Senior Playground


Feeling scared (Anna)
Climbing steadily across the web (Paapa)
Swinging upside down wildly (Anna & Connor)
Climbing desperately to the top (Hannah & Isabella)
Like a spider monkey in a hurry (Ashleigh)
Phenomenally fast, (Devlin)
Really high (Ayesha, Te Aranga & Julia)
The rope burning fingers (Paapa)
People shaking it, (Jade)
Feeling muscly and powerful (Marcus and Patrick)

Athletics Day

Devlin was a champion at our Athletics Day last week.  Here is his summary of the day...

At Athletics Day, I came first in sprints, first in long jump and came second in high jump.  In sprints my legs went phenomenally fast until my legs went full speed.  On Long Jump I ran as fast as I could to the board and jumped.  My legs looked like coils.  On High Jump I felt like I was going to hit the bar but I made it!

Our 'made-up' stories

Last week we had a go at writing our own short stories.  They had to have a setting, characters, problem and solution.  We then presented them in different ways.  Some of us decided to make videos.  We haven't done this before so learnt a lot!  Here are a couple:

Coding: Scratch Jnr

We have been doing Scratch Jnr.  It teaches you how to make instructions for animations.  You can make characters go slow or fast or repeat actions.  You can design characters and backgrounds and make them talk.  This week our project was making an animal race animation.  You should try it too! - By Devlin & Isabella
