Chess Tournament

The chess tournament

Alex, Guy and James from room 7 went to the chess - it took place at Hastings Sports Centre.
We left at 8.00 and came back at 2.45. 
When it is your turn, you go down the stairs and into the playing area.  You start your game when the buzzer goes.   We all played lots of games. Some of us won our games and some of us didn't.
Mrs Field came with us - thanks, Mrs Field.

Whanau Whitu goes swimming!

 !Swimming!

Every Wednesday and Friday we go somewhere fun.... SWIMMING!
We are all split up into different groups: Group 1, 2 and 3. 
I'm in group 2 and we are learning backstroke, freestyle, swimming with a board and more.
The other groups are learning something similar. 
But all together, we are all learning how to swim and that's the best part about it!
I hope you enjoyed hearing about our swimming!!!!
