Flag Football

Flag Football

On Monday afternoon we had Flag Football, it is similar to American
Football and Ripper Rugby. There were 3 positions,
quarterback, wide receiver and a halfback. We were taught how to throw the ball.
We have to put our pointer finger on the white line, and
put the rest of our fingers on the laces. In order to aim where
you want to throw the ball, you must always have a gap in between
your palm and the ball. When we catch the ball, you make a diamond shape.

Boxing Feedback

These are the 3 boxing commandments.
I will have respect for myself, my coach, my peers and the sport of boxing.

I will have discipline to turn up to every boxing session and give my 100%...

I will not cause harm to others and only practice boxing in a safe
environment under the guidance of a coach.

I enjoyed learning how to box, with Pax. Thank you for teaching
us how to protect ourselves using boxing. I was very excited when we first started.
I would like to have more boxing sessions because I really enjoy doing boxing.

Making a chatterbox.

I was very curious about what we were making Tuesday morning.
What a surprise, we we’re making a chatterbox!

Firstly, Ms Bracey handed us a piece of paper
from a magazine and a pair of scissors. She told us to fold
it down and make a oblong.
We folded all the 4 the corners to the middle.
We flipped it around and folded another 4 corners again.

Secondly, my chatterbox opened and closed when I moved my fingers.
Ms Bracey also told us, that if you put it upside down it can be a lolly holder.

Lastly, we finally finished making our chatterbox.
We had fun and played with our chatterbox.

Magic Snow!

Magic Snow

What a surprise, we made magic snow! On Wednesday morning,
the students in Room 8 did a science experiment.

Firstly, Ms Bracey explained the history of magic snow.
The product of the magic snow is called polymer.
Polymer is mostly used by scientist.
WARNING, This product is not suitable for younger children,
under the age of 5.

Secondly,  after Ms Bracy explained, we followed her
instructions and got on with the experiment.
The materials we used was a packet of polymer,  
plastic cup that was transparent and ½ cup of cold water.

At last, we poured the packet of polymer into
the transparent plastic cup, then we poured the water into the same cup.
The polymer absorbed all the water, and made magical snow.
It grew so fast, that everyone squealed. It felt squishy and slimy.
