Ki o Rahi

Hi everyone, over the past few weeks our class has been learning the art and sport of Ki o Rahi.I personally find the game extremely confusing at first but then once I started playing I was so easy.Its a very exhilarating game where you have to move all the time.The game begins by one of the two teams picking if there the taniwha or kioma.And then the fun begins.I'm only going to say what my experience was instead of telling you how to play, because all of my class are going to explain so go to one of their blogs.Really I think its a great game to play for all ages and  think that the people who came to our school and coached our class deserve a round of a plause because they were great!Out of all of the game I especially liked the ripper bit, there awesome!Thanks all the same,
 
Sally-ann!:)

Snow Expiriance Tail Trail.

Brad

As I was thinking what to do next, my annoying little sister through a very small and very cold snowball right at my head.As soon as the snowball hit my head it felt like it exploded and the little bits of ice shrapnel went down my neck."Oh you little!" I shouted as I swivelled round.I started running at her, furiously shouting,"I'm going to get you good".I scooped some freezing snow ad threw it hard at her."AHHHHHHHH!" she screamed.

My Expereance In The Snow!

At the time of when it was snowing, I was inside watching a movie with my mum,and we were totally oblivious, when suddenly the TV fuzzed then flicked off."Oh we've had a power cut, I wounder why?". As me and my mum went to cheak the lights just to make sure, I opened the curtens".Oh my god it's snowing mum!"As I stared outside, the delicate snow flakes were dancing around in the gentel breeze.Also on the deck, there was a white blanket of fluffy white flakes that had slowly melted, then froze again into ice.My mum said quickly "if you want to play get some warm clothes on and becarefull of the steps".As I grabbed my coat and wooly hat from inside, I carefully picked my way down the steps and into the front yard.Wow look at all this snow!

Shavee

"Well done lad!You got GOLD!!!"said one of my trainers.The crowed was clapping and cheering at me and as I waved they roared even louder then before.One of my other trainers put a small, soft white towel around my shoulders and patted me on the back.A day later I was standing on the podium and singing my national anthem and a heavy solid gold medeal on my achy neck.I was so chuft with myself,and as I was singing I was thinking to myself, it's party time when I get home.The next day I was on my flight back home to see my proud family.For the next week I was partying so hard that I fell asleep on  the floor holding my prize medeal.

on your mark.

"On your mark," that's what everyone says before our feet start thundering on the ground and the commentators start yelling along with the crowd.Usually its for running or swimming, but sometimes its for other sports
So in my case its for badminton.I love badminton and I have played since I was 8.My pa used to play with me and  in competitions, but one day he had a bad accident with his right foot in a car crash.I wasn't able to see him till after his surgery.Pa was my best coach and he taught me so much that, by the time I was fifteen, I was better then him.In his will, after he past away, he gave me his old racket that he had since he was little,$2,000 for badminton and $10,000 for collage and university funds.
