Firebird Cricket

Team Russell in action fielding.
Team Russell with Luke

We like playing cricket  at Russell School.

It felt great to be picked to play in the inter school tournament.

We might not have won, but we had the best coach, his name was Luke.One day we might be good enough to play for the Firebirds, like he does.

Ki o rahi

Our two teams with Rangi

We want to say thank you to Mel and her team for coaching us and teaching us how to play ki o rahi. It is like rippa but different.

Next we want to learn the dunk shot because it looks cool.
We know without Rangi, we would not have been allowed to go, so thanks Rangi! 

We liked when our parents and family came to cheer for us, it made us proud.

Mini Ball

On Thursday Russell School's mini ball team went to play mini ball at the Te Rauparaha Arena.
First we did warm ups. Then we got into our groups to do some skills. Lylah's group is group one and Sharnita's group number is two.
Do you know how many games both groups won? TWO!

Re Anne likes how people score three pointers. Tony likes how some people set up so others can score. Brandon likes how others can shoot the ball from far away from the hoop and get it in and score.

We want to say a big 'THANK YOU!' to Wendy and all the adults who support our team.

By Lylah & Sharnita.

Swimming Goal

Learning beach water safety
I was in the sea turtle group and my instructor was Paul.
What was the hardest thing for me? The hardest thing for me is to breath when I'm doing freestyle and the other thing is to stay under the water.
Listening & showing respect
My goals are to freestyle while breathing; do backstroke and to be able to swim a longer distance.

By Brandon


Thanks to the Cannons Creek Pool instructors that helped us achieve our goals in swimming this term.

Ole Football


 Today was our last day with Ole Soccer. We played with our class. It was fun because we scored goals and we like to run fast like a cheetah. It was cool!
