I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike

We had so much fun practising our cycling skills with Rochelle Young from Avanti yesterday. We showed how we could cycle in a straight line through the cones and stop using our brakes instead of our toes! It was trickier as the cones were moved closer and closer together. The most challenging activity was trying to keep straight as we cycled along a length of an old flattened firehose.

We're so looking forward to cycling on the bike track again once it has dried out after all the rain.

Rallying ahead

We are learning to play tennis with Kiwisport this term. Now that we're able to smash those forehands around the hall, we're learning how to hit a backhand. We're hoping that the weather is kind so that we can practise our skills outside on the courts next week.

Life Education

Lynn and Harold have been visiting Pt England School over the last three weeks and it was our turn to hang out in the Life Education caravan for a second time this afternoon. Lynn asked us to think about the kind of decisions we have to make and how other people may feel based on what we say and do.  She showed us some cool videos to help us think about making appropriate choices and decisions as we go through Years 5 and 6.
