Term 3
It is now Term 3, and for fitness, we have being doing skipping to improve our fitness skills. My advice to you is get a skipping rope which is the right size for you.
Otherwise, skipping is rather difficult.




Swimming Sports:
Swimming Sports was a couple of weeks ago now, but I am very happy with my results.
I got into interschool where you swim against other schools and I managed to place in all my races meaning I will go to the regionals competition in a couple of weeks time!! YAY!

Trust and Sensitivity Program:
At the moment for P.E we are doing trust and sensitivity programs so we can learn to trust our team mates in whatever situation we may encounter. We do a lot of silly games that are really fun and worthwhile!

Beep Test:
Today was the first beep test for the year. We do the beep test 3 times a year. The beep test is a stamina test, meaning you run back and forth at a certain distance and you keep going to reach different levels. I will record all my levels for the 3 times we do the beep test this year.
March: Level 7. 6
June: Level 7 .5
November:

Cross Country:
Cross country is coming up so everyone is working really hard to get reasonably fit. We run around the turn for 6 minutes everyday to this, and this fitness program will also improve our fitness for winter sports. Cross Country has now been and gone, I got 4th place - YUS! That means I'm into interschool! :) Because Interschool is in 2 weeks time, I am going to run around our farm which will be good so I can get some training in. :)
