First we watched this video to help use remember all of the cool things we did at swimming.



Then we used wrote our awesome stories. Here are some examples.

When  we went to hop in the G.I pools I felt very excited to swim. First we had to go under the water for 10 seconds to wet our body.Then we grabbed a board and  stood on the wall to wait for the instructions.After that the instructor said when we swim we point our feet and  we put our feet together and kick fast. And when you do the streamline you have to put your head down and if you want to have some air you lift your head up but you do not stand up you just lift you head up. After we swam by our self then we went under the lane rope and sat on the  stairs under the water then the instructor said “you have to  kick your feet fast and you have to point you feet.”  Then  the instructor was testing us then she said  when you are finished kicking your feet go under the line and stand against the wall. And wait for the instructor to tell us what we have to do”.Finally  the other class came to swim but we had 1 more minute to swim then we  hopped out of the pool and got our towels and went back to class.  got changed into our school uniform and went out to play.


Last monday room 14 were getting changed for swimming. We line up for swimming l was excited.` then we were in the shower it was cold . next we went to the pool when we got in side we were kicking the water. after we were doing crocodile hands on the swimming borid. Next we did the starfish and turning around . we put our face in the water for ten second. We went under the swimming borid . then we did  the stream line .i had fun.


On Monday room 14 started swimming I felt a little bit nervous  First the swimming coach did the roll and we could only say yes if we were swimming. Then we put our towels on the chairs and then we got in a line then we walked to the showers so we can get all the stuff off and we walked in them four at a time then when it finished we had to get out. Next we walked back to the pool then we got in it then we started our first lesson.After That we learnt how to get and we had to do it nicely for our first lesson we got our diving boards and we learnt something with it. Lastly we got out of the pool and we got our towels and lined up then we walked back to class then when we got back to class we went to get change then when we got outside we only had half of lunch time.Finally when the bell rang we went back to class.At the end I walked back home and had a shower then I started playing on the the tv until 9o cloack.

Our Dragons

This week we wrote a description of the Smallest Dragon. The children all came up with great descriptions and thought carefully about the name they would give the dragon and what they would do with it. 


The world’s smallest dragon is an amazing creature, it is so tiny that it sit on only two fingers of a human hand. cute even it has see through wings it has two ams and it has 6 finger all together but it only has 3 finger Topic:Caring for the Dragon Caring for this creature is a challenging task and should not be taken on without serious thought. If that was my dragon i will care for it and look after it and give it some food and let it play around . if it fly around my house will let it do it that. Topic: Playing with the Dragon AJ Dragons are playful creature and they love to play games with children. If everyone was not home will take the dragon to my school so i can play with it so i can not be lonely i will play fun games like play on the park and make it fly then we can have a break like eating some food from in my bag. 



The world’s smallest dragon gets its name because it is tame and small. It has wing a tail. It also has spikes on his head. When it breathes it breathes smoke out his nose. If I had one I would call it mike because it has spikes. It would live in a little dragon bed. We would play tag.


The world’s smallest dragon gets it's name because it is small.  
It has a hairy tail.  It also has two wings. When it breaths fire comes out of the mouth. If I had one I would call it Hendrix because that my name. It would live in my bedroom.We would play tag. 


The dragon is so cute I wish that was my baby pet I would call it lightning bolt. It has a hairy tail and it blows out fire. Its Wings are very soft and his 

Claws are very tiny.First I would build my dragon a little house to live in and I will put little dragon food in the house. but if bolt does not want to sleep in his bed I will put him in my bed.Next I will play a game called hide and seek with lightning bolt.I will be the seeker and lightning bolt will be the hider and there is no way I can find bolt because he is so tiny but it would be cool if I can fly.

Swimming

Today was our first day of swimming. Everyone was excited all day long. After arriving at the pools the 24 children from our class with their togs got ready to swim. The wonderful instructors put the children into three groups. During the lesson each group learnt new skills and began to gain confidence in the water. 




It was fantastic to see so many people from our class swimming. On Wednesday we are aiming to have the whole class in the pool. 

We had an amazing time at our first swimming lesson and can't wait for Wednesday!!
