This week Arrowsmith as had their performance practice. I am doing rakau.t was hard but I managed to throw my stick to my partner in the dance. A positive is that I can do all of the moves that we came up with. Something I need to remember is not to bang my stcks to hard on the floor because it makes lots of noise on the stage if we do.
Yesterday Tinwald School had there Skip-a-thon.I wonder if other people could do double Dutch. Something I tried was running in the rope when someone was doing basic jumps. Next time I want to have more goes in the double Dutch because I only had 3.The skip-a-thon was really fun!
On Wednesday it was ski/skate day and I went snowboarding with Jasmin and Abbey. Next time I want to practice going slower because I couldn't do it. I found out that skiing is easier than snow boarding but snowboarding boots are easier to walk in than skiing boots. I learned how to turn and clip in my boots into the snowboard.
Place Value Adding
44 + 32 =
I know that 40 + 30 = 70
And 4 + 2 = 6
So I just need to add 70 and 6
40 + 30 = 70
4 + 2 = 6
70 + 6 = 76
On Friday we had cross country I raced in the competitive and got 5th. I was proud of Aleesha because she came 1st and she was far ahead of everyone else. The track was 2 laps inside the school and 2 laps outside when we were on our second lap we got a band to know that we were on the second lap. Over all 1st was Aleesha, 2nd Marlese, 3rd Tamaki, 4th Abbey w, 5th Victoria, 6th Annya, 7th Ashleigh. I also feel sorry for Hannah and Jasmin because Hannah had an asthma attack and Jasmin's knee gave up on her so she feel straight to the ground!
On Monday we started swimming I was in level 6 but I was ment to be in pre squad so on Tuesday I got moved to the right level. In pre squad you have to do laps first we did 1 lap of freestyle then do a tumble turn and do backstroke then 2 more laps of backstroke after that I had to do 2 laps of breaststroke. We had to do slow backstroke with a finish stroke which is when you do backstroke then at the end you put your elbow on your hip with the rest of your arm pointing left if your doing it with your left and right if your doing it with your right arm. We finish with freestyle.

On Thursday I had to do my school leader speech to the teachers, I wasn't nervous at all my the rest of the people on my day were. The people who applied were Hannah, Jasmin, Abbey, Aleesha, Marlese, Tamaki, Ben, Todd and I. Today we found out which girls go to speek at camp then the kids vote. We already new who the boys were (Ben and Todd) because they were the only boys who applied. Then we found out the girls and this year there were four girls going through because there were so many! Then we found out, the first girl called was Marlese then it was Hannah after that is was Abbey and when she said her name I thought nope its not gonna be me. I heard here say vvii and then she stopped and I looked up then she called out VICTORIA!!!! I was SO happy and surprised but the girls who didn't get in was Jasmin, Aleesha and Tamaki.:( After that Abbey and I started to cheer Jasmin up and Abbey and I felt so sorry for her because we heard her speech and we thought it was really good! Well done to Hannah, Abbey, Marlese, Todd and Ben!! Sorry to Jasmin, Aleesha and Tamaki you did a great job and I hope you all go for house leader because you would make a great one!! VOTE FOR VICTORIA FOR SCHOOL LEADER!
