Nikita's Writing















This morning Room 11 and I went to the courts at 10am for our surprise. When we got there I saw lots of cones, rugby balls and two men called Siva and Siliva (they play for the Junior Warriors Team and are really good players). We did some rugby skills with the men. We played passes with the rugby balls and we also played a game called Kicking Tennis. Another game we played was a zig zag game and the last group had to do push ups. I felt happy because we got to meet some up and coming Warrior players and because we had a surprise. I had fun!

This morning Room 11 went to the courts for a surprise. When we got there we saw two men named Siliva and Siva. We played racing and passing games. It was fun because we also played a kicking game and it was my best game. Another favourite part of mine was when we were working together like a team (just like the Junior Warriors team would). Thank you for coming and I hope you come again.

Lizara's Writing















This morning Room Eleven and I walked to the court for a surprise. When we got to the court I saw cones and two men called Siva and Siliva. We did some rugby skills with the cones on the ground. Room Eleven and I had to be split into four groups. My group was to slow at one of the games we played so we had to do push ups. It was really cool though. Thank you for coming to my school and I hope you come again.

Hannah's Writing















At 10am Room 11 and I strolled to the courts for a surprise outside the junior classes. When we got there we saw some cones and two men, their names were Siliva and Siva. They are both from the Junior Warriors Team. Those cones were for us to do some drills so we could learn and have some fun. It was cool because we played racing, passing and a kicking game as well. My best part was having a great time with my class.
