This term we had lots of fun learning about body position, balance and control at our Taekwondo kiwisport sessions.

In writing we then wrote to describe being at Taekwondo using our senses.

At taekwondo we have lots of moves like punching and kicking.  I am good at the kicking and can hit the pad hard.  Nimit

"Come on punch! yelled Sir.  So I struck my fist on the black soft pad and kept on punching until I couldn't punch anymore.  Finally it was my partners turn.  His strike was good and  I was pushed backwards.   Alisha

I walk into the hall and our taekwondo leader (Sir) tells us to line up and turn.  I turn to discover my buddy for the day.  As I punch the pad my hand begins to ache.  I hope I didn't break any of my bones.  While I hold the pad my buddy rapidly punches it.  Luckily the pad is soft.     Zayn

Harold visit - food, nutrition and our body

Over the last few weeks we were very lucky to visit the Life Education van and hang out with Murielle and Harold.  In our first visit we learnt about the different types of food groups and the nutrients they can provide our body.

In our second visit we then put on our doctor hats and learnt about the different parts of the digestive system.  We didn't realise how busy our bodies were after we ate to break down our food and transport the nutrients into our blood!
