Paralympic Sport - Winter Learning Journey


1. Wheel chair Netball

2. To play this game, there would be 7 on each team. If you would receive a ball you have stay still and try see if your team mate is free. Then is your team mate is down on the other side of the courts that you team mate tries to shoot the ball in the netball hoop. Then the you team will score your team a goal.

3. The rules of the game is quite similar to the original game. the 1. rule is you have be 3 meter away from your opponent , if not you have beside them and that called "stand down". The 2. rules is if have receive the ball have to try and not move until you other team mate if free, then you try a pass it to them. The 3. rule is that if you try to attempt a goal you can go move forward a little bit to score your team a goal.

Here are my 3. thing about the Paralympic new sport. the Paralympic new sport that I have just made up it wheel chair netball. I have include the name of the sport, how to play the sport, and 3 rules about the game. The rules of a game is similar to the original game of Netball. 

Fundraising - Winter Learning Journey


  1. To help with the Fundraiser, I would set up a bake sale in my street to help
  2. To help, I would ask a neighbour to help with their chores if they need help.

The reason why I have choose that it because I enjoy doing baking and would a opportunity for others to taste my baking. For my second reason, I choose this because I like helping people and trying new things.

For the para-cycling, I would choose my friend Cecilia because she would have the ability to move around and be in the front, and I would not have the ability to hear and I would have the ability to see. the reason why I would choose Cecilia, it because Cecilia and I are great working together and there are worrying about something.  

Writing The Ending Story - Winter Learning Journey

Where is the NZ team?

Starting Story )Imagine that you are sitting in the crowd at the opening ceremonies for the Rio Olympics this August. The ceremony has just started and all of the Olympic athletes are parading around the stadium in their uniforms when all of a sudden…

( Ending Story ) The NZ athletes were gone. Where are they? This can not be happening!! my friends and I were gone to see what happened to them. We looked around and outside but they were not there, We asked some of the athletes from other countries but they all looked shocked. But there was this team that they didn't like, which was the Australian team. We asked them but they did not answer, we asked them again and still din't answer. There was something wrong with them, and something looked suspicious. We kept on telling each other that it could be them that the NZ athletes were gone. We soon looked around the stadium then we found Niall Williams trapped in the caretakers closet all by her self. We looked for the care taker to unlock the closet, but he wasn't there either. So we tried and tried to open the door then we, then we found the key under the door matt. We unlocked it and she was finally free. We then asked her where was the rest of the team and she said that she doesn't know either. We look and look but we could find the rest of them. But when we walked past the......

Today I had to write this story about the NZ team gone and not participating in the parade. I had to write about 10 - 20 sentences, so like pretty much a story. This was quite interesting to write because I had a lot of imagination going around in my head.  Do you know where the rest of the went? Could you finish the end of my story? 

Olympic Host - Winter Learning Journey

Olympic Host

I think that Maria Tutaia would be a great Olympic Ceremony Host because everyone around the world would now notice her and would be a great opportunity for her to be the host. I have chosen her because I like the way she plays netball and how people can learn some of the tip about netball.  

NZ Team Uniform Ranking - Day 6 - Winter Learning Journey

NZ Team Uniform Ranking

 2012 NZ Olympic Uniform. #1

 2008 NZ Olympic Uniform. #3

 2004 NZ Olympic Uniform. #2

Today I had to rank these NZ Team Olympic Uniform in order from 1 to 3. The first one I would rank it a #1 because it in style and I really the dresses. The 2nd I would rank it a #3 because the fashion style is kind ugly (no offense) but just having one pattern to re present New Zealand would be not good. The 3rd one I would rank it a #2 because I can see the use the of the colour and how different style for each gender.

Imagine that you were alive in 1936 and you had the chance to interview her. On your blog, post five questions that you would like to ask the Olympic champion (if you had the chance to meet her!). Here is the 5 question to ask her if I was alive in 1936:

Who inspired you to go to the Olympics?
Were you allowed to go to the Olympic because of your age?
What school did you go?
Where would you go for practise?

This is movie is about Eddie the Eagle who is trying to be the best he can to ski at the Winter Olympics.

Tom and Vinicius no.3 - Winter Learning Journey

Today I watched Tom and Vinicius episode #3. This episode was about Tom and Vinicius who were in china, when they were looking at the view then they meet 3 young beautiful girls, they wanted to take photos of Tom and Vinicius. But the 3 young beautiful girls told them to keep moving back and so they did and then they fell but they had a great idea to work together. From there Tom and Vinicius saw them rowing to another land. And played with them until night, Tom and Vinicius and the 3 young beautiful girls watched the moon until Tom had a great idea and that idea was to let some fireflies go and brighten up the bridge then celebrated and played music with each other.

Today I have watched Tom & Vinicius collabratiing together to build their house. First time Vinicius tried sleeping in the log, but it had some bugs in it. Then Tom tried to sleep in a tree, but it had some mysterious thing in. So Tom and Vinicius were figuring out were to sleep. They tried and tried and they had an idea to bulid their house in water and in the tree. But when they first tried it out is was uncomtable to sleep in, so both of them sleep outside of their house. 

Tom and Vinicius Episode #1 - Day 2 - Winter Learning Journey.

Here is screenshot of the video I have just watched as the activity of the Winter Learning Journey. This video about these random cartoon characters who have just meet and they have got along very well. That happens when one person thinks that they are not going to be friends with that person, but when you get to see who they truly are, they become true friend. 

No Girls Allowed - Winter Learning Journey

Milo Of Croton - Winter Learning Journey

Milo Of Croton

  • Milo of Croton was a 6th-century BC wrestler from the Magna Graecian city of Croton, who enjoyed a brilliant wrestling career and won many victories in the most important athletic festivals of ancient Greece.

  • Milo was a six-time Olympic victor. He won the boys' wrestling (probably in 540 BC), and thereafter five men's wrestling titles between 536 and 520 BCE. He also won seven crowns at the Pythian Games at Delphi (one as a boy).

  • The date of Milo's death is unknown, but he reportedly was attempting to tear a tree apart when his hands became trapped in a crevice in its trunk, and a pack of wolves surprised and devoured him.

In this blog activity, I have list three facts about "Milo of Croton. This was very hard to find but everything about him was on wikipedia..... "Phew." This was very interesting to find facts about him and how he was the 6th century BC wrestler. 

Day 1 - Winter Learning Journey. Sports In the Ancient Olympic

Which Sport Will You Pick?

The sport that I will pick out of the running, wrestling, boxing, pankration, horse racing and pentathlon, is going to be Penthalon because I have choose this sport, it because I like to try different sports and not just one. This pretty much like cross roads that I have blogged about earlier this week, so taking the hard road which is taking the hard, challenging, and risk taking road and not taking the easy road which is simple, not difficult, and basic road. In this blog post I have included 2 photos which are the ancient stadium and the Olympic ring.
