Run! Jump! Throw!

Intro: Welcome back to the final episode of run, jump, throw! In this final episode, there is: 1) Messy house, clean house - where there are two areas with nine stuffed toys on each area. 2) Shot putt 1 (Not ordinary shot putt.) 3) Shot putt 2 with a cricket wicket! This is going to be an extraordinary event . . .

Run, Jump, Throw.

The past 6 weeks, we had run jump throw with coach Declan. He is a coach from a company called “Kelly Sports.” The first two weeks, we had to learn how to get ready when you are participating in a race and how to run. The week after we had practiced how to run, we had to learn how to jump. In the last two weeks we learnt how to throw. These were my favourite sessions because there was a game called “Knock Down The Wicket.” The team that had most points, they got 10 minutes of play time on their Chromebooks. Three teams won, including my team. It was fun but the fun was over. I hope we do it again next year.

  2. Talofa lava Saluselo,

    I really like your recount of Run, Jump, Throw as well. I personally love sports and I am always really interested in learning about new activities.

    If you are also someone who likes to learn new things, please consider joining our Summer Learning Journey blogging programme. It's a free blogging programme for all students at Ruapotaka school. Over the past few weeks I've been blogging with hundreds of students and we've been having a great time! I hope that you'll consider joining us :)

    To join the programme, simply hop onto the Summer Learning Journey website (, click on the 'Weekly Activities' tab, choose from one of 60 different activities and post a blog about it.

    I will read your blog and post a comment back. I also have other teachers and students who would love to read your blog posts and provide comments. You will earn points for each blog that you post and I'll keep track of your points.

    At the end of the summer I'll come to Ruapotaka to hand out certificates and to bring prizes for the Top 3 bloggers in your school. I really hope that you'll join us and be in to win a great prize!

  3. Kia ora!

    I'm Mark, a teacher working with Rachel on the Summer Learning Journey.

    We have 8 days left on the SLJ and I just thought I would remind you that you can join in anytime! It is never too late. Plus if you're running out of things to do, this is definitely an interesting and worthwhile way to spend you time.

    The point of the journey is to keep your mind sharp for when school starts by make you use all the skills you developed last year. The activities are designed to be interesting and are only as hard as you want to make them.

    At this point in the journey, you don't even have to do all the activities, or even do them in order! You can just pick and choose. Everything is cool as long as you're getting that brain up to speed.

    I hope to see you online soon and blasting through some of these activities. If you don't know where to find them, then just follow the link below. Remember to post the answers on your blog-site and label them with their day and activity number.

    If you decide not to however, it is all good! I hope you have been doing your own reading and writing over the holiday period anyway, and I wish you all the very best for the 2017 year at school!

    Kia kaha, never give up and always do your best!
