I was last in line when I heard one of my friends say “Bobbi its your turn.” I stepped up to the mark.With the ball in my hand. I could feel my legs tremble I threw the ball as far as I could . I was so glad when Miss T told me I had won second place.
Yes! it was Pt England schools Athletics day(Athletics is when you do a bunch of events like Discus, Softball,Sprints and a lot of other stuff). Every year we put on a display of events to see to see who are the elite Athletes. At our school we are divide in to four house groups called Matatua,Te arawa,Takitimu and the best group of all Tanui.
After my cunning win of second place of with the softball throw it was time for Shot put. Having never came a place in shot put before I was nervous. This time I was one of the first people up. I put the ball by my ear as tension was growing hearing people cheering me on. Finding out my throw was good enough for 2nd place.
It was time for the event I had been waiting for I stood feeling a slight breeze run through my body really nervous listening to Mr Burt(Our Principle) Saying on your marks. I stood shaking as some people wanted to keep making us start all over again. It was time to get serious Mr Burt said on your marks get set BANG!! I sprinted down the track with the wind blowing through my face. Winning all my heats making it to the finals.
It was time for the finals I could fell mixed emotions as the Y7(year7)11year old girls were up. I ran down the track as fast as I could. My running was good enough for 1st in my 75 and 100 meter race.
The thing I liked most about Athletics was having a lot of fun and winning five certificates(1st in 75and100 meters,2nd in softball,2nd in discus and 3rd in shot put).I hope that when we find out the final results Tainui will come out on top for 2010 athletics. I can not wait until inter-zones!!

A couple of weeks ago we were given a task to explain a word that was related to our topic which is about bugs. We had to use the computer and show it in any digital form we liked. My animation about the word colony is finally done. Hope you enjoy my movie!!
