AFL Coaching

Isn't AFL an Australia game? I was intrigued when I heard there were Aussie Rules Coaches,coming in to teach us how to play. We are kiwi kids!

The most difficult thing to do is Drop Punt. It was hard to aim at your target, as we had a contest. My partner was showing off as he was felling confident saying” Mr S catch this” as he missed kicking it to the side.

The second thing that our coach was going to demonstrate, is how to hand pass. It looked easy when she demonstrated it but it was not easy for us. As I tried to hand pass it veered off in an different direction and I said “Watch Out! as loud as I could.

Now it was time to handmark. You have to make your hands into a W. I dropped The ball as we had a game it was not to easy as I said “ No!

I’m looking forward to putting all these skills into practice, when we get to a real game of AFL next week.

Polar Bears

In the Arctic, Polar Bears are the largest Bears in the world. It lives on ice and along the shore.

Polar Bears have are very thick coat to keep warm. They have bumps on their paws to grip on ice. it has sharp teeth to help chew hard bits off.

A cub does not live alone, it lives with its mother. The cub lives with it for to in a half years. The mother protects the little cub, and she teaches it how to hunt for food.

Polar Bears wait to hunt seals because its their main food. Seals have their own breathing hole to breath. The polar Bear waits until the seal comes up to breath. When it comes up it flung its huge paws with sharp claws to flip it on the ice.

In the wild bears live for 20 years and a bear that live in the zoo it manage to live up to 41 years.

RWC Ceremony Opening

On Friday it was the big game for the rugby world cup opening as Tonga goes against the All Blacks. There was a big cheer from the fans from both teams and they came onto the field.

The crowd was cheering as loud as they could, like wild animals. They wanted the game to start as the performance was still going. As it started I thought we were going to win as Tonga would not get any points. But they got one and the crowd went crazy.

There was the last minute of the second half we won but we did not expect there work although the city struggled with the huge crowd,everyone agreed that the opening ceremony was a huge success.
