Our Daily Fitness

On the first day of school we did running, we lined up in our class lines from Room 12 to Room 9. First the teachers had to spread themselves around the senior block to make sure we were still jogging. We had to jog for ten minutes.

Mrs Golder stood on the hill timing us and yelling at whoever who doesn't satisfy her.

When we finished we cooled down our bodies by jogging slowly on the spot, we also put our hands on our head so our lungs could receive more oxygen.

A Huge storm!

On Tuesday I was watching the news. I saw that Auckland was going to be hit by a huge storm so I prepared myself. A few hours later there was an enormous storm. I was terrified because I thought that something could have happened. A tree could have fallen on my house or the roof might have flown off so I snuggled in a fluffy blanket to keep me warm and relaxed.

 As I was watching TV I heard a buzz. Then lights went out. The television switched off automatically because there was a power outage. Suddenly, I heard weird banging noises coming from my balcony so I went upstairs, hopped into my bed and fell off to sleep.
