Que Rico! Alfarjarcitos son lo mejor!.

Room 13 made some delicious Alfajorcitos, they come from Argentina. Alfajorcitos are popular because they are yummy and kids love them so much.

First of all Miss King got everything settled for the class.she gave out the biscuits,plates,knifes,coconut and last of all the dulce de leche .

Then we had the knife to spread dulce de leche on the biscuits. and got some caramel to spread it with our knife , after that we squashed the biscuits together. We rolled edges of the alfajorcitos into the plate of coconut and then we were ready to eat. Eating the alfarjorcitos was absolutely delicious.

This experience has taught me alot of things about Argentina and shows me that I have done heaps.

Cross country!

What did you do on Wednesday?

At Point England Reserve we did cross country,I was so excited while I was sitting on the field.

Nervously waiting my heart felt really pumped ,I felt really scared That I had temper,getting started was really scary Because I thought that I was going to lose.

I heard Mr Burt saying "on you marks,get set , GO".I ran really fast to get through people,while running my heart was pounding so fast that I lost Breath.While going through bridges I saw miss squires capturing photo’s of people running by .

At the end of the race I was exhausted,Then I saw miss king capturing photo’s too,But didn’t really matter at all.I was almost there ,So I ran so quick trying to get to the finish line.

Cross country was fun because we running so hard that we lost our breath.Next year my goals are never giving up at any time.

Aussie Rules

One blustery afternoon Room 13 went outside to play Aussie  Rules with 2 expert coaches,their names were Alysa and Megan.

Our first skill we learnt was to do a quick warm up called the Bumper Jumper.First you hop on one leg then you get your partner so close and try to bump them, to make her stand on two feet. I lost against Ana!

“Now come to the floor” shouted Megan  and Alysa. Our next skill was bouncing the ball. In Aussie Rules in order to run, you have to bounce the ball - so we had to practice. It’s harder than it looks. Our first attempt was to bounce the ball while on our knees. Next we tried standing, then walking, finally running. I struggled to get it right.

Then we did an activity called kick baseball, we got into teams.when I got the ball I did a short kick so it was a really tough kick.That was not very good at all for my team,It  was so frustrating after all.At least we won the game.     

Doing Aussie Rules skills with Megan and Alysa was very fun and cool. We really did some great work with them and I look forward to learning more.

Icons,rugy world cup speech

New Zealand is a very unique country compared to the other countries. A million years ago New Zealand was connected to Australia, but now we are geographically isolated. Our Kiwiana shows you how we are in Aotearoa.

The buzzy bee Toy was the most New Zealand famous and treasured childrens’ toy. Its colour is bright with bright red with yellow wings.The buzzy bee was made very late in the 1930’s in a small company in Newton, Auckland. Maurice Scheslinger designed the toy and made the first buzzy bee toy.

Jandals is foot wear made by New Zealand. It’s strap is a Y- strap shape,like a thin thong, that passes between the first big toe and the second toe and around either side of the foot.Flip flops may also be held to the foot with a single strap over the front of the foot rather than a thong.

So thank you all for coming to rugby world cup 2011 and New Zealanders hope you have a fun and good time and Thank you for reading my introduction And go ALL BLACKS !!.
