Hatchet Response Activity!

Are Brian’s reactions to the pilot’s death and the crash realistic? Does Brian seem like a real thirteen-year-old boy?
Answer: When the pilot was dead, Brian was scared but he was still fearless. I think Brian doesn't look like a 13 years old because when the pilot was dead in the plane, he didn't cry or anything so I guess he seems to be like a 16/15 years old.

Plans & Prepare For A Bush Walk!

When you go on a Bushwalk and on a really long bush walk you’ll have to be aware of the weather conditions and getting prepared. It is important to tell your friend or anyone where you're going because you might not return back home. It would be good to wear some good casual hiking shoes to wear when you go. If you're going to spend a night in the bush it would be a good idea to learn how to start a fire to keep yourself warm. Make sure that a first aid kit is near you in case you get burnt. Keep your backpack as light as possible so it won’t stop you from walking to the destination.

Awesome Basket Ball!

Bright shiny morning! This morning room 10 had basketball. First we started with a warm up relay. We got into pairs. Everyone was sweaty and hot therefore we did too many relays. After the relay we did some basketball skills and competition.

During basketball our first skill was chest past. Some of us keeps on dropping the ball therefore we were far away from each other. Next it was competition. It was funny because people keeps dropping the ball and some were cheating. We had heaps of skills. Finally it was over. Everyone were all tired.

The Euphoric Basket Ball!

The bright shiny sun! Today we had basketball. We started with a warm up game called Statue. Steph told us moves for it. It was interesting to see some new actions in basketball that Steph taught us. After that we had to do our skills that we did before. Steph showed us a different skill. It was back head fake. Back head fake was very tricky and hard for us.

Next we finished of with a game of octopus. It was a euphoric game. Nearly everyone was out therefore the taggers were very fast. When it came to only three people left, the taggers couldn't run faster therefore they were tired. In the end we all gathered around and said thank you to our instructor Steph. I was a terrific lesson.
