The Year 6 Girls and Tyla

For the past week, our extension group has been looking at water around the world. When I say around the world I mean East Timor and Africa. We created a movie of what goes on in your body. We learnt about what happens to a healthy body and an unhealthy body.

The group I was in was with Litia, Brooklyn, Vivienne, Chante and me. We made this little movie so we know what happens with your digestive system.

If I was to rate our group out of 10 I would give us an 8. I give us an 8 because it wasn't perfect but it was pretty good and had a little humor in it. What would you give us?

The bit of the movie is not a very nice looking part but I was cool with it. Even though I had to to the person going to the toilet I still enjoyed creating it.

So sit back relax and enjoy!!!

Where The Rugby Ball Originally Came From

Have you ever wondered where a rugby-ball originally came from? Well its a pretty disgusting story. A rugby ball originally came from a pigs bladder.A.K.A WHERE PIGS PEE FROM.

How do they use a pigs bladder as a rugby ball your asking. Well, people in the 1800’s use to cut it, out wash it, then blow it up. The disgusting was that they blew it up with their mouths. Is that yuk or what. That is like so unhygienic.

sometimes they blew it up with a smoking pipe. That way they didn’t have to put their mouths on that really unhygienic thing.

Today we don’t use those disgusting things,we use man made rubber. At least its hygienic not like the 1800’s balls.
Turning up late to school, I was wondering what the topic for this term was. As soon as I sat down in the hall I asked the boys sitting next to me, Calvin and Jacob, if the Immersion Assembly had just started. “Yes”, they replied. The whole school was there (except the year 7’s and 8’s) to find what the topic for the term was.

Mr Burt announced that we are learning about the RUGBY WORLD CUP (or in other words it was called) Keep Your Eye On The Ball. Every term on the first day our teachers in each year put on an act. This terms funniest team was team3. Their act was the BOMB!!! (Not literally!)


Their one was classic. It was like a game. The aim of the game was to finish your bowl of Weet-Bix without your hands. Teachers had to find a partner in the audience to help them eat it . The way they helped them was, they stood behind them, took a hold of the spoon and had to aim it to their mouth. The first one to finish was the winner.

Of-course you called tell that Miss Lavakula was going to cheat . When it finished the last team finished their act we went back to class to start the first day of term 3 awesomely
