Today we got on the bus to go to the Cross Country. It took a while to get to Taieri Beach. It was a lot of fun. People were very loud on the bus. We were all very nervous and excited. The people in the bus kept singing and some of us found it annoying. I cannot believe that the Room 5 children still know the Polish Christmas carol - I love that sound. When we got to Taieri Beach there were lots of other schools. The year three boys had already run their race by the time we got there. The year 3 girls were ready to race when our bus pulled up. Mrs Howard got there JUST in time. The blocks went bang and the girls were off. They had to run around the first fence, then run straight down the fence line. We tried our best and we made it to the finish and that is all that matters! The year four boys raced next. Everyone was sprinting at the start. Then we all starting puffing and slowing down. Then we came to the finish line and everybody was cheering.
What a magnificient day. I am so very proud of you all. Please check back soon for photos of our marvellous day.
