Taekwondo at Waikowhai primary School. 

Each week  Waitamata will do Taekwondo we learn lots and lots of new things. Some of the things we learn are how to kick correctly and how to stay balanced.  I have created a Google drawing to show some of the things that we have been doing. Have a look at my work then go to link to read the rest of my work.

Our camp journey

Hi, Bloggers last week we went on a ski trip for four days. We stayed at the national park hotel and got served some DELICIOUS  dinner  and pudding. On our journey MT  RUAPEHU we stopped at different  places like, Hamilton gardens , Otorohanga walk way.  At Hamilton gardens we did a scavenger hunt all around the gardens to find specific photos that Ms Sands had taken. It was so much Fun and Hamilton Gardens is an amazing place to visit. We stopped at Tamarnui Primary School for afternoon tea and to stretch our leg and for a play. When we reached our accommodation we had free time in our rooms sorting out our gear. That night we went for a walk in the dark to a nearby park. The next day was the most exciting of all we finally got to head up to the mountain and see the SNOW.  Up on the mountain we were dived into skiing and snowboarding groups to get started and get our boards and ski's but MAN was the gear difficult to put on so hard getting our feet into the boots. But after that, the real fun started.

Up on the mountain one the first and second day, we all got ski or snow boarding lessons. These were super useful as it taught us how to stop in the snow and how to turn and avoid people so we didn't get hurt. The first day on the snow was the most difficult because we were on our bottoms a lot and we had to keep picking ourselves up all the time. But we all should so much resilience and determination not to give up and keep trying until we got the hang of it. The best news is by the end of the first day most of us were able to ski from the top the the bottom of the mountain without falling over quiet as much and by day two we all had it nailed and were like Olympic athletes Haha. 

We have so much more news to share but we think its better if you the fantastic bloggers ask us questions. Ask us questions that you would like to find out about our awesome trip.  Below is a slideshow of some of the photos of our trip.
