Duffy Role Model Assembly And Orienteering With Mr Leon

Today was an exciting day because it was our Duffy assembly with a special visitor. Before the assembly we found out some interesting things about our visitor which was Michel Mulipola. I already knew some things like he makes comics but I was amused when he said that he wrestles because I love watching it on T.V. I was all excited to meet him that I forgot we had orienteering around the same time. As Michel was talking about his comic he came across one of them in the school journal that my group and I had read it was about some tips on making a comic. Just about he was going to talk about his wrestling we had to be escorted to room 11 for orienteering.

First we went over the basics which was colors from our previous maps. Everyone had to be divided up into four groups I was in group four. The first activity was we had to pick up the picture and then we had to match it with the word it was the same for the second activity but the other way round. Next was my favourite it was a bit like snap but you had to put your hand by your side and when the teacher called the name the first hand on the correct card got to take it back to their team. That was a fun day!

Practicing For Cross Country

Toady was our first practice for cross country which is coming up and it only happens once a year so we all have to build up our stamina. Running outside of the school grounds was tiring because the distance was much longer than our usual run but I'd rather run around two times then run for ten minuets. After my first run I was feeling exhausted like all my energy had been drained but that didn't stop me I knew I only had one lap left so I used maximum power for the last lap. Finally when I finished my lap I was relieved and I could tell by everyone's faces that they were all tired and ready to rest. That was a good first practice run but I'll keep on trying my hardest and put in an 100 % effort.
