ATHLETIC TRIALS

On Wednesday the 14th of March 2012 some people tried out for the Athletic Trials. There was a girls team and a boys team. The people who raced in our class were Mikayla, Chelsea, Kristy, Steven, Matthew and Kyle. There was 100m, 200m and 800m. Before the girls raced they did warmups such as star jumps, lunging and racing. The person who came first in the boys team for the 100m was Steven. 200m was Lachlan and 800m was Kevin. The people who came first for the 100m in the girls team was Tany. 200m was Tany again. 800m was Kristy. It was really fun!

The bones in the kitchen.

One of the activities for Health was all the classes in the St Joseph building going to our Kitchen to touch cows legs and sheep necks. Did you know that Mrs Pike got them from the butcher? Did you know that they also had muscle still on them? We also were touching sheep knee caps. Most people thought it was gross to be touching cows legs and sheep knee caps and necks. We had to have gloves on, because after it was lunch. Most people said that they didn’t want to eat lunch, because some people were not feeling very well from touching the bones. Then when the bell went to go to lunch it was too hot to go outside and play, but we did have to clean up first. We also did other activities in the other rooms about bones and muscles, but the bones in the kitchen was the last activity our class did.

Monster trucks at Nativity

On Thursday in week 3 a monster truck came to Nativity. The monster truck’s name was Raptor’s Rampage. It cost 350 thousand Australian dollars. Kyle and I (Luke) went to the show. On Saturday the monster trucks came to the showgrounds to do a show. When I got there I went to the pit party. When I went back to our spots we waited for the show to start.

 

Then the monster trucks came out after the bikes and then the monster trucks came out and the commentator talked to them. Then the monster trucks did a race. Batman won. Then Devil’s Taxi tried to do the world record wheelie and he did it in four shots. He made 91 metres.  Then they did freestyle and Raptor’s Rampage and Taz crashed. Batman won the freestyle. Then they did a train where the monster trucks follow the leader. Then the jet van came out and he used a a smoke machine and smoked up the place. Then when he used the jet engine in the back you could see the fire and the smoke. It ended and we went home.
