Rita swims With The Turtles


I got the most amazing opportunity to visit the beautiful island of Samoa. As I was just sitting there watching the turtles in fear thinking about what will happen when I hop into the water, was so dumb of me. I was wasting the most best chance of getting to swim with turtles. Luckily me and my relatives went while the sun was setting. It was so pretty.

“C’mon Rita come in they wont bite” my cousin named Peter yelled out in Samoan. I could see the expression on his face was HAHA you scared pants. Glancing to the right side of the shore I could see that my other little cousin named Methra was riding on a turtle. She made me look like a wuss because she is younger than me and she was already in. Out of the blue I stood up walked in and touched a baby turtle. Just like that.

Then suddenly somebody seized my hand and dragged me into the water. I was so surprised to see that it was my one and only Auntie Sela it was so lucky she was strong because she pigi banked me because I was so scared. As I was on her back I could see how the Turtles treat each other. I saw one turtle slap the other turtle in the face I felt sorry for the one that got slapped.

As I was soaking my feet in the water, my cousin whose name was Cina asked me if I wanted to feed the Turtles, and obviously I said yes straight away. This was the best opportunity ever. As I was getting handed the Yese, as they call the fruit in Samoan, I could see that the Turtles were already eager to get some. Slink, the noise of the fruit being sliced sounded like, the fruit I was feeding them was almost finished. These Turtles are such fast eaters.

As the time flew by the sun was almost set and it was getting darker. So we ended our whole fun day with the best, feast, ever. Samoan Saka (which contained Taro), Fish, Chicken, Luau (Samoan food), and etc. So that was just one day filled with fun I just couldn’t wait for the rest of my week.

Bitterns


My reading group have been reading a book called The Bittern. It is about a man getting the wetlands named after his last name. He gets this because when he was a young farmer everyone else drained their swamps to get more land, but this man thought ahead and didn't. He knew that there were lots of birds that for them, the wetlands were their home. So this is a presentation showing information about Bitterns which were native birds to New Zealand.

Australian Football Coaching


Isn't AFL an Australia game? I was intrigued when I heard there were Aussie Rules Coaches,coming in to teach us how to play. We are kiwi kids!

The most difficult thing to do is Drop Punt. It was hard to aim at your target, as we had a contest. My partner was showing off as he was felling confident saying” Mr S catch this” as he missed kicking it to the side.

The second thing that our coach was going to demonstrate, is how to hand pass. It looked easy when she demonstrated it but it was not easy for us. As I tried to hand pass it veered off in an different direction and I said “Watch Out! as loud as I could.

Now it was time to handmark. You have to make your hands into a W. I dropped The ball as we had a game it was not to easy as I said “ No!

I’m looking forward to putting all these skills into practice, when we get to a real game of AFL next week.
