WOW! A HUGE congratulations to the open and under 50kg rugby players for their wins today, hence the cups in the photos. Great sportsmanship, energy, skill, fair play, support and encouragement! We are all very proud of you all! The last win for under 50kgs was back in 2010 and 1995.

Tug of War!

Writing by Loseli

Yesterday Room 6 and I had a game of tug of war because
it was about using force. We had to use socks because
shoes had more grip and friction and the socks had less
friction. It was so hard to pull because the socks were
slippery and you needed to have friction on your hands.
A group of boys and girls had to vs but the numbers had to
be even.

First, the boys and girls had to go on each side and pull with
force. When the force were the same, the rope didn't move
because it was balanced. We had to collaborate by pulling
with force and weight to make the other end drag. When
one side has more force it accelerate.
Do you know what accelerate mean?

Next, Miss Bound picked 1 person to come and grab one
side of the rope and that one person had to pick another
person to vs him, soon they both used force to pull the rope.
Do you know what force means?

After that Miss Bound said boys vs girls, the girls started
pulling and the boys started to pull and people were making
a loud noise, but Miss Bound started to jump in the girls team
to win but suddenly the boys pulled so hard that they all fell
into the floor one by one and two by two, they landed on each

Finally, the next day we saw funny photos and started
laughing at their faces when they were using force and
when the boys all fall down.

We had so much fun doing the Water Fun Run for the first time this year! We had a water slide, a mud pit, muddy tyres, sprinklers, hoses, water guns and buckets. We even got to throw sponges at the teachers on the sponge throwing board! We raised a total of $2576.58 as a school and Room 6 raised the most!
