Yesterday we had the Junior School Athletics morning. We got to rotate around lots of different activities like chicken throw, hurdles, javelin, egg and spoon and standing long jump. After that we participated in the sprint races. Finally it was time for the class relays. Miss Butel is a little bit competitive and took the race quite seriously and thought very strategically about our running order. But it paid off and we won!!!

On Thursday we took part in National Shake Out Day. At 9.15 the practice earthquake struck and we all followed the 'drop,cover, hold' procedure. We liked making ourselves into turtles and were really pleased it wasn't real.
We used the experience to imagine what a real earthquake might be like and then wrote some amazing narratives.
One morning I was on the ipads. Suddenly a bash came through the room and the ground started to shake. I was scared. It was an earthquake! I dropped, covered and held. It felt like a rocket flying into Room 8. I did not like it because it felt like I was out of control. When I came out from under the table the pictures were off the wall. I lined up outside. I was happy that the shaking had stopped.
