Silly sport day

On a Tuesday morning I noticed Mr Harris had equipments in his hands.

It's a sign that we are doing sports. Mr Harris had

told the class, instead of doing our normal activities,

the class is going to be doing silly sports.

It was going to happen on the bottom field, where it's quiet and peaceful.

And further away from other classrooms. Not untill the rest of team five came.

We were already at our first activty and we had to team up with a partner.

I teamed up with my good pal, Jephte. We may not be

good at first, but we could only give it our best.

We kept on dropping the ball and tripping up, but it was

absolutely funny.

After time past, we moved onto a new exciting game, which involved water.

This sounds like we are all going to get wet.The instructions

was to pass a wet sponge with water, all the way down

to the end and squeeze into a bucket. I was keen and joined into a group.

Which had myself, Sione, Jordan, Aliza, Jarna and Denim.

Our team did not win but still it was funny because Jordan had made a big slip and

ended up with dirt on his back.

The next activity was with Mrs Lagitupu. The game was ball tag. This was a familiar game,

because I had played it along time ago,

but still remember how the game goes and how to avoid who your playing against.

And once again we quickly got into four teams. I forgot who was in my team,

maybe because it was getting too exciting and everyone could not wait and play.

However for one thing, we were........... NOT THAT GOOD.

Our team sadly lost one game and draw one.

The one that we had a draw was a close one because there was only

one more person to get in our team and that person was,

(Drum roll please) I don't like to brag, but it was me!


With determination and quick thinking I took a save for the team.

I felt so proud, everyone in the group were happy. It was time to move on.

We travel like 20 meters to our next activity, but it was worth moving fast. The reason,

you do not want to get hit by a flying ball and seriously get hurt.

Because the next sport was the catapult game.We had to

land a ball in the hoop. Know one got it in but when Miss V walked passed she said

"if one of you guys get me it's 100 points" so we tried and tried but,

know one was able to get her until Miss Tito had a go,

and some of the people playing she got her.

The sports day ended with so much of fun, everyone being involved and taking part.

I really enjoyed it. Especially being proud with my own quick thinking and our

team encouraging each other on.

I hope it happens next year and there are more fun-filled activities!
