Rugby Union Inter school

Today was the Rugby Union Inter School. Each team was split up into groups. The year seven and eight's boys had four game. The first school we played against was Glen Taylor. We fought hard but we couldn't get our tackles right. The score was 0 - 17 to Glen Taylor. Then we had a bye. Our second game was against Glen brae. We had great runs and tackles but unfortunately we lost 10-17 points. Our third game was against Glenn Innes. Our defense and line outs were awesome. But sadly we lost 10-17. Our last game was against Tamaki Primary. They were a toughest team out there. We still fought hard to win but we lost. Losing our games didn't put us down. I think we were respectful to every team. But all that matters is that we had fun. Thank you to Mrs Caroline, Mr O and Mrs Ally.

PBS Blogging Journey - Day 4, Activity 2

Today I did the second activity for day 4. Each year there is a parade at the Museum, we had to find out when and why it's held. To record our answers we had to use Vocaroo. I think this activity was cool because we were trying something new.
Here is my link to the recording - Link 

PBS Blogging Journey - Day 4, Activity 1

Today I did the first activity of day four for the school holiday reading challenge, for it I had to find out about what life was like as an ANZAC soldier. I had to visit the Museum Website and find out 3 facts and write why it interests me. To get this information, we had to watch a few videos that explained the events that happened throughout World War 1.

Fact 1 - There was one time when the Turkish waved a white flag, requesting to free clean their bodies. This fact interests me because I never knew that you could do that in a war. 

Fact 2 - Austria - Hungary declared war on Serbia supported by Germany, then the Russians declared war on Austria - Hungary supported by France. Once Germany invaded France through Belgium, and then came the British, until all countries were included in this war making it a world war. The reason this fact interests me is because that one small thing can lead to something huge.

Fact 3 -  Over 44,00 ANZAC troops died because they missed the spot hey were supposed to land at, they landed near a cliff where the enemy troops were. This fact is interesting to me because by making a small mistake can really cost you.

PBS Blogging Journey - Day 3, Bonus Activity

For the bonus activity of day 3 I had to create a DLO that provides information on the opening times and prices of Kelly Tarlton's. I got all my data from the Kelly Tarlton's site.
