Swimming with the Instructors.

Today Room7 and Mrs George went to the Glenbrae Swimming pool. When we got to the pools 2 instructors told us that we are going to get a number. A lot of people got number 3 and only a little bit of people got number 2 but no one got number 1. When we got in the pool we got a blue kickboard. When we got the kickboard, we put our hands on the top and starting kicking our legs so that we can move in the cold water. After we had finished that, we moved on to our next lesson. On this one, we had to put our hands on the bottom of the board and kicked our legs. After that, we had our last session, we had to swim freestyle without a board. When we were finished we hopped out of the pool and got changed. I was really happy because I learnt a lot of fun.

Life Education Caravan.

Today at the giant Life Education Caravan, Mrs George, Mrs Neighbours and Room 7 were talking about decisions, choices, and body parts with Jenny. First we had to stand up and put all the yucky body parts to where they belong in the great human body, but before we did that, we first had to explain about what that body part does and what it needs. After we had done that, we watched a video called Choices, the room was very dark. It was about a 11 or 12 year old girl called Ana who was listening to her friends instead of waiting for her big sister to pick her up for dance practice. When the film was finished,the bright lights turned on, Jenny asked us some questions about the film. After a few minutes later we hopped out of the giant caravan. I enjoyed being in the caravan learning about choices and YUCKY body parts.
