Firstly we practised for our school assembly and then we made ourselves and our whanau very proud by performing our very best. We performed Ko Waitohi tōku kura nei and the haka was awesome!
After assembly we had buddytime with Room 7. Mrs Ives and Mrs Piercy organised a game of tee-ball. Sarah was really good at catching the high balls and she threw the ball all the way back to the tee. Tana, Van and King all batted well, but were on opposite teams and caught each other out.
After lunch we practised our songs for the end of year concert and read a few more chapters from our class shared book - WONDER. We are really enjoying this book and Mrs Ives told us that it is going to be made into a movie soon and we might like to hear the story from the book before we watch the movie.
To finish off the day, just when we all felt we were about to melt, Mrs Ives said "Let's play SPLOSH!" We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into, but she told us that it involved water. That sounded like the best idea ever!
Splosh is a target game where you set your own rules around a bucket of water to try and splash the other people in your group. Naturally, you have to be a good aim to be successful so we were working on our ball skills while we had fun.
We all thought Splosh was so much fun that we gave it a 10/10. There were six different sized buckets and we rotated around to challenge ourselves and peers in a variety of ways. We all enjoyed getting SPLOSHED!
We got closer to the bucket to make the biggest splash. Our feet were getting hot on the concrete so it was good to wet our feet. Sometimes we stood in the bucket to cool down. One time we had to stand on the deck and aim down to the bucket. Sometimes we tried to get further and further back. It was fun when someone stood behind the bucket and we aimed to splosh them.
Playing splosh was awesome!
