Silly Sports Day

On Tuesday team 5 had Silly Sports day where we played games. There were some water games where we got wet. There was one where we had to put a ball on a spoon and make it across to the other side. There were 3 or 4 teams, the best game that I liked the best was the Sponge game where you had to put it under your legs and past it to next person. I liked the sligsoht where you had to get the ball in the goal.

Team work was the best thing to do and helping each other to get thought it. Some people were doing foul play and cheating and getting the game done so that we could hop to the next activity. The water activity was one of the best games there. All I could think about was winning.

The Brumbies were given a number of names of rugby-playing nations of the world. These were some of the nations that are recognised by the world governing body of Rugby Union, the International Rugby Board (IRB), as member unions but did not qualify for RWC 2011.
We divided them up amongst our team. I was given the nation of Luxemborg.

“Where The Heck Is Mangere Bridge”

Different Auckland town centres have adopted Rugby teams from countries that qualified for the World Cup.
I found out information about :
The location in Auckland;
Something special about this place;
A 'potted' history of the place;
If it has it's own symbol of some sort.
(If we couldn't find a symbol we chose a picture that told more about the place).

Mangere Bridge is hosting Switzerland for the RWC.

Mangere Bridge is a suburb of Auckland and is about 12kms south-west of the city centre.

Mangere Bridge Village is renowned as a friendly, yet “real” taste of Kiwiana, and is a great way to acclimatize to New Zealand culture. The area is steeped in history and has a rich cultural heritage stemming from Maori settlement in the early 1800’s through to a vibrant Chinese market gardening community and European settlement.

The Martin Jet Pack

Glen Martin made the first ‘Martin Jet Pack’. He is famous for what he has made, he is going to be rich with his jet pack.
They had to test the jet pack with a dummy so that they could know if it is safe and then they would test it with a person in the pilot position.
The jet pack can go where no helicopter can go like between buildings and sides of mountains.

The Martin Jet Pack works by two really powerful, big fans called ‘superfans’.
The Jet pack shot into the sky over the Canterbury Plains at a climb rate of 800ft per minute, reaching an altitude of 5,000ft. Captured on video by TVNZ’s SUNDAY.The U.S military are showing and interest in buying the Martin Jet Pack
