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.

Where in the world

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.

This is what I found -
Map of Luxembourg.

Flag of Luxembourg. Luxemburg is a country in Europe.

The Capital city of Luxembourg is........Luxembourg.
The Country name of LUXEMBOURG is............. LUXEMBOURG.
The population of Luxembourg is...........503,302.

Luxembourg has lots of sports, cycling is the most popular!

“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.

Keep your eye on the ball.

For this unit we are in one of four teams: Brumbies, Force, Rebels, Stormers.

There will be a number of tasks for us to navigate to achieve our goal of an excellent result in this unit. There are a mixture of individual and team tasks to be completed.
