I have found lots of places that should have full stops, and there are some places that don’t need full stops but I put them there. So I think that proof reading is really helping me in writers notebook.

Last Thursday outdoor day – blogging

Last week Thursday we had an outdoor day which we stay outdoor and do activity. My first activity was the ninja warrior with Mr Elder, it was an activity outside out of school. It was a thinking task, we had to climb over a chain thingy, throw three hopes into a tea ball stand and we had to climb onto this thing on the play ground. Our group ended up getting all three of the task and we got three smaller mats.We worked as a team to get across the ground without touching the ground, while bringing the big blue mat with us. Our group has won that task and I was proud of my team.

The next activity that we did was netball, netball was always a fear to me after Harmony Day. This time I got to learn how to play netball and it was very fun learning the skills and teamwork in netball, I learnt that you need to run into space, and call for the ball so your teammate know that your there. But I really enjoyed it.

After recess, I had AFL football and it was on the oval. I was playing as centre, and it was easy playing as centre. I really don’t like playing as the three backs because I don’t really know how to kick a football properly. But I really enjoyed it.

After lunch, I did photography with Lily. We had to take pictures of our favourite person, favourite place and a favourite thing around the school. When we were walking on the oval, Lily was like hey why not take a picture of our shadow that would be cool, because one of my favourite person is Lily and so does she. For our favourite thing we went to Mrs Stam and Mrs Monaham session and we took a picture of the wool thing form under the tree and it looked amazing. For our favourite place we took a picture of the blossom. I was a fun day though.
