Today For writing we had to write out some instructions for jelly to help us learn how to write good instructions. It was really fun because after that we were allowed to make some!!!! We split up in groups and we made four different flavours of jelly. Next we had to get all of the equipment and ingredients that we needed to make this. We also added Wine gums and peaches to it. Firstly we had to cut up the peaches and half them up for the whole group and put them in our groups cups and we also halved up the wine gums and put them in. Next we had to make the Jelly by pouring the contents into a owl and adding two cups of water to it and mixing it until the sugar crystals have dissolved. And then we had to pour even amounts of jelly into our cup and then put them into the fridge to cool off and set. After a while it set and then we were allowed to eat it!!!!
Today we did our first round of athletics at school. I am in the 11 year old group so my first round was Tennis ball throw and my second one was shot put. Each day we do two sports and switch around the next day to different sports. There are six sports to do Shot Put, Sprints, High Jump, Discus, Long jump and Tennis ball throw. There is one extra fun activity that we are doing and that is the relays, where we either dress up as fast as we can run around the cones and come back and take them off for the next person.
Today I went to Penny's house for her birthday. Throughout that time she opened her presents, she got lots of awesome ones! Then we played games and also on her keyboard. Her mum made an awesome cake the cake was of Penny holding a netball and her position that she played in netball. The last thing that we did was go too the horses, I took pictures and videos of the horses. I had a great time at Penny's it was so much fun!!!
On Thursday Me and My friend Amber went to Caroline Bay In Timaru. There are three pools two of them are the warm little pools and one of them are the big cold deep pool that is 3.4 feet deep. Amber and I played Volleyball in the deep pool It was lots of fun! After playing Volleyball we Went in the Lazy river, I really like the Lazy river because It pushes you around the pool without you needing to do anything at all. I thought that Caroline Bay was really fun and next time I hope that I am brave enough to go through the huge Hydro slide!
