Aussie Rule

Have you ever played a famous Australian game. We had been learning the skills required to play Aussie rule.

The ball we use in Aussie rules is called a kiwi kick ball. It is a very essential and special piece of equipment to Aussie Rules. There is laces stitched on to the ball, and there is different colours on the ball.

Well one of our lesson was the bounce pass. It was a bit awkward because when I bounced the ball it was unpredictable where the ball will go. It was unexpected how to hit the ball to make a bounce pass.

My favourite thing in Aussie rule was the chest pass.

Cross Country Run

The day had come to do cross country. We had to run in the forest. It looked extremely dangerous and scary. It was windy and it looked like it was going to rain but it didn't.

It was hard to run because there were streaks and old steps. There was a smelly muddy creek and broken branches, there were zigzagging tracks and there was broken branches and old bridges.

I was nervous and scared that it might be scary. I jogged for the first bit, but I walked half way and then ran and ran. I was huffing and puffing at the end. I was so exited when I crossed the cross country finish line.

Mesmerising Australia

Its only a short hop skip and a jump across the Tasman Sea to Australia, but there is a world of difference in what you will find there.

People in Australia are multi-cultural. The first people in Australia were the Aborigine people, who were the first people to touch the land of Australia. They are Australia’s important people.

Australia's unique animal's are Koala’s, Kangaroo’s and Platypuses. These animals are native to Australia. The unique animals are very lucky to be in Australia.

Australia's Climate is predominantly arid which means it’s hot and dry. The coast in Australia is hot and very warm, it is also humid.

So if your fortunate enough to make the journey, you will need to allow plenty of time to explore all that Australia has to offer.
