Planet Ark Day

On the 24th of July 2015, the students and teachers from BLPS celebrated Planet Ark Day. We all had to wear green clothes, since that was the main colour of Planet Ark. We planted a plant in a milk carton, then decorated it in coloured icy pole sticks. Then we got together with our buddies to eat lunch, and help them build there own plant boxes. My buddy got on quite well with the task. Overall the Planet Ark day at Berwick Lodge Primary School was a fun day for all of us.IMG_2478

Cricket Clinic 2015

On the 7th and 14th of May we had a cricket clinic ran by the students from S.E.D.A.The S.E.D.A. students were well organised and had 4 activities for us to do throughout the clinic. They split our grade into groups, In our group we had Summah, Ceili, Simone, Brodie, Rohan, Lucas, Max and myself.

The first activity was bowling, We were split into two groups. It was Rohan, Lucas, Max and I verse Summah, Ceili Simone and Brodie. The first team to knockout three stumps wins. I started of with hitting a stump right when to opposition got one too. The Max and Lucas got one almost back to back, Lucas’s being on the whistle to move onto the next activity.

The next activity was a game of catch to catch with a small twist, we could only throw to our partner when the instructor said go. Sometimes it was confusing because they said words that sounded like go but they weren’t, so we were out if we through it and they didn’t say go. Soon the whistle blew to go to the next activity.

The next activity was again catch to catch, but with an even bigger twist. One lobbed a ball over whilst the other bounce passed it underneath the lobbed one. At first it was tricky, but over time it became extremely easy. We also had to count how many time we could pass the balls like that without dropping them, Rohan and My record was 23.

The last activity was just a bit of batting practice, we had to hit a ball in between 2 cones, I didn’t really do that most of the time. Brodie got it in every single time.

Overall my favourite activity was the first one, because of the competitiveness. But every activity was just as good as it and I had a great time both weeks.
