We have been reading about the Victorian Age. We found out that children used to learn which countries were part of the British Empire by looking on a map. All of the countries in the British Empire were red or pink. I have highlighted the countries in the British Empire during the Victorian Era in red or pink.

BMXing is going to become a Commonwealth game in 2018. The person that made up this idea was Taiaha that lives in Auckland in GI.

In this event you have to do heaps of tricks. The equipment is a BMX and a hat to keep you safe.

For the venue you need a skatepark. For the players you need a 2 person to play in this game. For the rules you have to not push the person. If you push the other person you are out of the game and you are not allowed to take the chain of their bike.

big black whale

I wish I were a jumbow, dark whale
Out in the infinite open sea sea.
He blows like a hose
Through the top of his nose,
As playfull as a whale can be,
And the sailors look pale
When they hear his tail
Go bang bang, bang,
On a big wave’s back
Out in the far navy sea.

Taiaha swimming

we are lucky to have professional coaches teaching us in our swimming lessons, so l made the most of it and worked really hard to improve  my teacher  

When we got to the GI pools our teacher sent us to go and get changed Into our togs. you need to have a shower to wash the wax off your hair before you get in the pool. when we got  out of the shower we were shivering and shaking like snow flakes.

When we were doing freestyle using our flutterboard we were floating and we had to kick  to go fast. If we didn’t kick we will go slow we kicked fast propelling through the water  

on the final day of swimming we had a relay race to see  how much we had improved.The instructors called six people at a time to see how good we are

Our lessons were hard at work at times, but really worth it.
