This term we have been learning a sport. We don’t usually play this game in our country. It’s called Aussie Rules.
This term we have been playing Aussie Rules. Our coaches were sandwich and Initia. When they started to talk us through what were doing I thought that they were really nice because some people who teach us something rush us through it.
The first skill we did was drop punt. The drop punt is when you pretend that you have a big piece of mud on your foot. Then you drop the ball onto your foot and flick off the mud.

Guess what we did in the weekend? We went to the market in Otara.
In the weekend my Aunt and I went to the market in Otara. Most Saturdays we go there. As soon as we got to the market, I was very hungry. We looked around and didn’t find anything we wanted.
My Aunt gave me $20 to buy anything I wanted to. I spent my money on food. I brought chips and kebabs. I only had $15 left.
When we were done looking around, we went to the Internet cafe. Sadly it was full so we went home. The only thing I could do was to play on the X-box. As soon as I knew it, it was night time. For dinner we had nachos and mince. It was delicious. It was bedtime. Just before bedtime I had a shower so then it was bedtime.

When I look at art, it really inspires me. Sometimes it even distracts me from what I’m doing. I love art because it is an artist's work and if you make fun of it, people might make fun of your work. I think that old art works are expensive because it’s a little like gold. Art can sometimes be weird but thats what makes art so interesting.
When I try hard to do my artwork, I think that I do a good job. Every time I smuge it, I think that it’s ok. When I grow up, I want to be an artist because I want my drive way to have a hole painted on it so people could realize how good I am if I was a real artist. If you see my sister and my drawers then it would be filled of stationary because we like to draw.
If I was an artist then my walls will be filled with drawings. I would draw things about me and things I love with my family on a big piece of paper. My favourite art work is the Mona Lisa art work because it is so cool and it looks real. My other favourite art is the art video’s on our Room 16 site.

In the holidays Emily, Stephanie, her mum and I went to Reece Mastin’s concert. The doors didn’t open until 7:00pm so we waited about one in a half an hour. The doors opened and we went up the steps to our seats. We really couldn’t find our seats but we did. I was sitting in seat 799 which was at the back.
As soon as Reece Mastin sang his songs, everyone was screaming. I wasn’t screaming because I was tired. While he was singing, we started to play I Spy because we were bored. We took photo’s until it was time to go.
It was almost midnight and we were on our way home. When we jump onto the train, again we played I Spy. We were finally at Glen Innes. There were hardly no people walking around. As soon as I got home my aunt was crashed out on the couch. I went to bed and thought how would I act if I wasn’t so bored?
Guess what we’ve been up to this week? Room sixteen has been at the Glen Inness pools swimming pools.
This week we’ve been swimming. Usually we go after lunchtime but this time it was a little different because we went at 11:30. On our way we walked really slowly but Mr S told us to hurry up. We were learning how to swim because we have another camp at the end of the year and if we don’t know how to swim then we might drown.
Once we were at the pools, I quickly went to the changing room and got change. I was a bit nervous when I came out because it was my first time swimming this week. I went to line up and Mr S said “Who is new to swimming?” That means if you just started swimming today then we have to jump in the water first.
As soon as I hopped into the pool, the water was warm and cozy. The activity’s we did was floating, front stroke and front stroke with the board. My favourite activity was the front stroke without the board because it was just fun. At the end of our swimming lessons, it was a bummer because it was so cold even if we go outside. It has been so fun this week because we've been swimming.
