Yay! It’s house sports. Today we had house sports. House sports is like when team vs the other team. Our team was Rata. Our activity was running. We had too vs a team could Blue. First our instructor Mrs Amy, told the leaders to sort out who's the faster and all the way down.  

Next it was time to run. It started of with the leaders and all the way. Mrs Tofa told us that Rata is leading. Rata said yes” because we were winning. Blue tried their best to beat our points. While the others were running, it was time for the girls to run. Everyone were cheering for their own girls in their own team to run. It was Rata first and then Blue.

Finally it was over. Rata won. We all shacked hand’s. Blue tried their very best. They hope next time they will win and we don’t win.

Our Dance Fever

Wow! That was the best lesson ever I have a had. Today we carried on with our Dance Fever. Captain (our instructor) told us that today we will polish our hip hop. We started polishing all our hip hop moves. After that Christina and Captain gave us some more moves for hip hop. We all tried doing it and we all got it. I felt so enthusiastic because I felt I was into it and I felt I was a hip hop dancer.

Next we had to do another dance. It was chacha. The chacha is like when its boys and girls. We all got into partner. Some of them didn't want to do chacha because it was a partner. Christina and Captain gave us simple moves. It was just so easy to do. Christina said to us that the weeks that we will be learning chacha, there will be holding hands and that. Everyone said nooooo”.  

Finally it was all over. Christina and Captain told us that they enjoyed doing chacha and hip hop with us. I hope we will have an awesome time at our next Dance Fever.

My Presentation About Petrol

Our Amazing Hip Hop Dancing - Dance Fever

Yahoo! Its time to do some hip hop dance. This morning we had 2 people from a club called Dance Fever. A dance fever is when you do hip hop and sorts and other things. They came and teached us hip hop and that because the school will be having a dance competition to see who is the best Dance Fever. There names were Kristina and Captain.  

Next Kristina and Captain went thru some basic rules. After that it was time to do some dance. They showed us how to move and then they showed us actions. It was so new to some of because we haven't done some dancing or hip hop before. The first thing they taught us was how to move our foots. Our next one was wipe, tic tac, arms and some boom boom.

Then it was time to put all our actions together. We had the music together.  Kristina and Captain told us that in the middle of the song we could do some poses. I felt so excited and amazed because it was my first time doing hip hop.

Finally it was time to play a game. The game a dance battle. It was girls vs boys. The leader had to dance and rest have copy their moves. Captain said its time for the leaders to have a dancing competition. After that it was time to choose who wins. The winner was the boys. All the girls clapped. We all hope the girls will do well.

Mission Bay Time!


What a lovely hot sunny day! My family and I drove down to Mission Bay. We went Mission Bay because it was so hot and sunny. The fun bit was when we swam in the big fountain. Everyone was splashing each other and bumping them of. Finally it was time to go home. What a big day!

Sky Tower Time!


Wow! What an amazing day we had at the Sky Tower. Today my cousin's, aunties and I drove down to the Sky Tower. It was free to us because my aunty worked there. We went on the lift to the top then went to the Sky Deck. I felt nervous when I looked down because I had a feeling I will die. The fun bit was when we saw boy's and girls jumping from the top all the way down. People and staff were clapping. I enjoyed my day at the Sky Tower.

What A Big Day!

Last week Saturday on the 5th of October it was a big day and a exciting day. It was my cousin 21st. It was held at Southern Cross Campus College. Family and friends gather around at the birthday. Everyone danced around and clapped and that. Everyone enjoyed the 21st birthday because it had amazing music and other staff. We all hope one of our families children has a 21 birthday.
