Great Day At St. Kents

Today room 9 and room 10 took a bud and drove to St. Kents to play some fun activities. When we arrived we had to get into 4 or 5 groups.

After that we went with our St. Kent instructors and played the activities. The activities that my group played were the basketball game and another game but I don't remember the name of it.

I felt exhausting playing the games at St. Kents!

The Commonwealth Games - KW


I know that different countries go to the Commonwealth Games in Australia. They have different countries that come to watch or do the Commonwealth Games. The Commonwealth Games have sports such as soccer, swimming, running, shot put, ice skating and rugby.

I think that the Commonwealth Games is a competition programme where people can go to the Commonwealth Games, in Australia  and participate. Also I think the Commonwealth Games is where people are good at a sport and they go there to compete other people, to see if they are good enough.

I want to know what other types of sports do the people play and what do you do in the Commonwealth Games. Also I want to know why do we have the Commonwealth Games. Lastly I want to know when the Commonwealth Games start and end.

The Lonely Cat

There was a lonely cat
Who was very fat
She didn't know where to be but, 
 found someone that was free
She ran and ran and hit a tree
On her knee was a little cut
She didn't care so she ran until,
she lost her breath of air...

The lonely cat was lost,
She didn't know where to be
She ran and ran and hit a girl
Who was as kind as pearl
So the girl kept the lonely cat,
and put the cat in a safe hat!

The Big Mean Witch!

On a dark, scary night, there lived the evil mean witch
She had a great big itch on her hairy leg
She would snitch children's candy but wouldn't beg
Sometimes she'd cook people that would make her very happy
but she'd also get quite snappy
The witch would crash people's parties,
Sometimes she'd even steal people's smarties,
and would always turned people into panties

Everyone hated the big mean witch, but they couldn't do anything at all
The witch wasn't impressed of what people thought of her, 
so she went and looked for a new home
She looked and looked and finally,
 she decided to live in Rome!

Swimming With Instructors

This week room 10 did swimming with the instructors. We had two instructors for each group to separate us into the two groups.

Once we were all into our groups, we began to swim. For my group we had to hold onto the boards at the top and, kick to the other side of the pool. It was very exhausting because my legs were getting tired but I made it to the other side.

After a few swim skills we went on our backs. I was very nervous because if I went on my back and kicked to the other side, I'll probably hit my head on the wall around the pool, and that would really hurt.

My favourite skill that I did with the instructors was when we did arm strokes to the other side. Also I enjoyed doing stream lining and diving to the bottom while we do stream lining.The skill that I want to complete before swimming is over, is doing laps with my arm stroke without touching the ground.

It was an awesome time swimming with the instructors because I got to learn more on swimming skills than I did before.

Amazing Experiment

This afternoon room 10 did an experiment that included a Milo tin, a pressure cooker and cold water. Before we started the experiment some of the class guessed what was going to happen when we put the can on the pressure cooker with the water inside without the can lid.

Firstly we had to take off the Milo picture that was around the tin can, so that we could see if the fire would burn the tin. Then we put a little bit of cold water in the can before we put it on the pressure cooker.

After that we all went outside onto the grass to be safe. The pressure cooker was already on the grass so then Miss Misela put the can onto the pressure cooker without the lid and waited to see what would happen. Nothing happened on the outside of the can but inside the water was getting bubbles inside. It looked like Sprite to me because there was bubbles bubbling in the water.

Now we wanted to see what it would look like if we put the lid on and put it on the pressure cooker. We waited for a while and the lid exploded! It was amazing because all of our reactions were surprised.

I think that the lid flew off the can was because the heat from the pressure cooker was putting pressure in the can and it was rising up, then it put pressure on the can lid so that's how it exploded!!
