The Rosary

The Rosary are prayers beads. On the Rosary beads they have lots of Hail Marys, Our Fathers and Glory be. First you say the Our Father then you say the 10 Hail Marys and lastly the Glory Be. You don’t need to count your fingers while you’re saying the prayers, you can just use the Rosary by moving your fingers to the next bead. For example like you say the 10 Hail Mary’s you can move your fingers to the next bead when you finish saying it. You can say this at home and at a funeral, before they take the body to the church.

Every Rosary has a crucifix and a holy medal on it. You say the sign of the cross in the beginning before you say the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be and when you finish you say the sign of the cross at the end

Wow for our new kiwi sport for Term 4 is Squash!!
"What kind of sport is Squash!!"

Today straight after morning tea it was Room 3's turn to go inside the hall to learn skills about Squash. First we lined up outside Room 3 so that we can go to the hall. We walked to the hall so that we can go inside to start. When we were inside the hall their were two mens their name was Michael and Phil, they told us what was the rules about Squash. After when Michael and Phil told us about the rules for Squash Phil put us in 2 groups.

The other group went and practice skills for Squash and the other group went and played Squash on the court for Squash and then we had to swap before 11:45 because their were another class that were going to the hall to have Squash. We particpate and we listen while Phil and Michael were talking to the class. My group went and play Squash on the court for Squash while the other group learn skills. When it was time up we had to swap so that the other group can get a turn to play Squash on the court.

After when my group finish playing Squash on the court we went to the other side of the hall so that we can learn skills. Phil told us if we can bounce the ball by using the Racket and it was so easy for me, after that he told us again if we can throw the yellow ball up and flip the racket to the different sides. After when we finish doing everything we had to put the racket back on the bag and we had to sit on the floor at the hall so that we can go back to class, but first he gave the paper that says if you want to play Squash at Panmure where Phil and Michael do Squash and also it cost for free. After when Phil gave the paper we went straight to lined up outside.

We asked Miss G if we can go for a drink and she said “Yes”. After when we finish having a drink we went staright back to class so that we can do writing then have our lunch for lunch time. Only three days we have Squash and the last day for Squash was Wednesday. Nicol David was the top female for Squash and Ramy Ashour was the top male. Harrow School was the first school to create Squash around in 1830.

My favourite part of Squash was challenging other people. On the last day of Squash some people started to play well and I was really proud of myself because I only lost once on the court where you play Squash but 3 time bigger. So the two people with the highest scores have to go on to the next court and the two people with the two lowest scores have to go down a court.

When I woke up my Cousin went straight to the lounge and turn on the T.V.  and then he went and sat on my Bean Bag. After when he turn it on I ask him what is he watching and he told me to come and look.

When I got out off my bed I went straight to the lounge and sat on the chair so that I can watch T.V. too. 

While we were watching I ask him should we go and have breakfast and he said "After when the cartoon finish" and I said "Okay". 

After that when the cartoon finish it was his favourite cartoon that was on, I ask him should we go now and have breakfast and he Said "After my favourite Cartoon" and I said "Mann" so I just sat quitely and watched it until it finish.

When it was finish we went straight to the Kitchen so that we can make our own breakfast. I had Toast and Milo for breakfast and my cousin had the same with me.

After when we had breakfast we went into the lounge and play some last cards because we didn't know what to do so I decide to play Last cards.

But for next time I am trying to beat him when we play Last cards again.
