Halloween

One Halloween night is here and all I see is ordinary people roaming the side walks with plastic bags. Later that our nana and papa gave us a lollie lay and a flower aye that you wear around your head. But sadly we had to give most of our lollies away.

Quickly as we could before these strangers came to our house we brought out a silver bowl out of the bottom cupboard and put lollies and chips inside it. Sadly only one was dressed up as a scary vampire so she got the biggest lollie that my sister wanted “Mum I wanted that one” she said and cried. When we couldn't see any more trick or treaters, we ate the left over lollies it was nice.

A while later we watched a halloween movie which was really creepy “ahh!” my sister said at the end of the movie.

Swimming

With great difficulty I squeezed into the life jacket Chris gave me. This is cold” I said to my friend. Eagerly awaiting to go into the pool, Chris helped me adjust life jacket. My friend Chante was chattering excitedly to me and just before I got reply every body had to line up ready to make their way inside the pool.

Chris is a Great swimming teacher he is a helper at water safety NZ he is going to teach as about water safety every Wednesday until it is the end of the term.

As I hopped into the pool my teeth started to chatter like beaver gnawing at wood. After a while i got used to it and and the chatter of my teeth started to die down. When all of us were in the pool we had to practise our help position all around the pool , we were crashing bumping into each other while doing that. Some activities that we were doing were a recap of the ones last week.

Another activity was when we all had to get in a huddle and sing the national anthem. Chris our instructor was spinning us around in a circle it was fun. After awhile we had free time. Chante, Jay’lee and I sang ring a ring a Rosie. After that we had to go “I cant wait to go next week” I said to Miss Squires. One of the games we played was a five second frenzy, with our life jackets on. It was hard because the life jacket forced us to float on top of the water. video
