Athletics 2012

Today was Athletics Day and the field was scattered with sports equipment. When I arrived to school everyone was wearing their team colours. My team is Matatua a.k.a green. Javelin was our first activity, I was soon to have my turn. I was really excited but nervous at the same time. “Brooklyn, you're up” Mr Barks said to me. As I nervously walked up to take my turn, I grabbed the javelin stick and through it as far as I could. Unfortunately it didn’t stick to the ground but it was a very good throw.

I was quite disappointed in myself but I knew what I did wrong, every time we let go of the Javelin we were supposed to flick our hand so it would land diagonally. We all got reminded to flick our hands because that's the main reason hardly anyone got placing. Luckily my friend Huelo- ata came 2nd.

Our next activity was  softball throw so that meant it was pretty simple to do. When I through mine I became second place one ahead of my friend Huelo-ata. All the kids that got a place had to go to Mrs Clark and tell her the order of the placings.

Next was discus I was kind of freaking out because our class didn’t practise it. But when it was my turn I did pretty well coming 3rd but then getting put down to 4th. I think to do better I have to practise more. Huelo-ata did pretty well but sadly she didn't come in any place.

After discus it was morning tea we didn't do much then but as we started to do our activities it all started to get interesting. Sooner or later the day had to end but the last activity was relays. Parents vs kids and Teachers vs kids. They were all great but when the clock stroke three we all went home in a good mood.
