Walking to the pools

After walking to the GI pools in the pools, we went to the changing room to change. After that we went to have a quick shower and ran to the pool and had to wait for the other people to finish. Then it was our turn.

Miss Squires said,  "Hop in the pool." When we were in the pool we did steady strokes. I was gasping for breath. I did steady strokes. I was bobbing around the pool. When I was swimming Ms Squires told me to kick and I was kicking furiously.

My favourite part was when we did the steady strokes.

Fire Safety

Beep beep! beep! What is that noise .That noise is the smoke alarm beep!
There must be a fire. It is really important to be fire wise so I will tell you what you need to know to be safe in any situations like this. These are some safety tips.

Most fires happen in the kitchen often by drinking and cooking. Every time
you sleep you must turn off electrical appliances like stoves, TV and microwaves.
To be ready for a fire you must draw an escape plan. Did you know you must stay 1 meter away from heaters and candles?

Every time you must check you smoke alarms. Everybody must be able to get out of the house quickly. Keep matches and candles out of reach.
Did you now there are around 4,000 house fires in New Zealand. If there is a fire in the room get down get low and get out-fast.
If you cannot escape through the door you should then shut the door this will give extra
time to escape the heat and smoke.Crawl to the window keeping low under the smoke, take
a deep breath of air and then reach the window.Once you got out you call 111 .Is your family
still safe and secure?


Guess what I did last Wednesday? I went to Motat. I went on the bus with my class Room 14 and Room 13. We had a lot of fun. We went because of our topic.

First we got on the bus then when we got there we got out of the bus and we went in to a room with one of the leaders.  Then we had morning tea.

Next room 13 went with the teacher while we had to wait, then we went to tactile dome.When we went to the tactile dome we saw lots of fun things around us. When we were at tactile dome some man came out of the door he was talking about tactile dome. Jonita and 3 more girls then it was me and Esrah me and two boys went in. It was dark in the tactile dome. When we got in there we were singing a song. It was hard. We were trying to get out. We were walking then we fell down. When we got back up we were using our hands to see where we were going. Then we were going up hill then we saw the side. We went down the side then we got out of the tactile dome. It was the next person's turn. Then we went to the next things. We played some games - we were playing car games then we went to then other game room.
