RING!! the lunchtime bell went off, we all got into our P.E gear ready for our fabulous afternoon. We all put our shoes on and sat in our class lines in the street.
“Good afternoon senior block” Said Mrs. Tale’a “Good afternoon” said the students, “We are going to have a good afternoon today, we are doing the amazing race”. Everyone cheered from the top of their lungs with excitement. Mrs Tale’a gave us information on where we are going, who will be looking after our stations and when we are doing these events.
Walking in our little groups we made it to our first station. The station was called Pea Pipes. This event was basically when we had a little straws each, and on a table in front of us there was a plastic bowl of frozen peas. We each had a turn of sucking up a pea and running to the other side of the court were there was an empty bowl to drop the pea in.
10 minutes up the teachers looked to see who was the winner of this challenge. “And the winners are ..... Room 1. We were gutted that we didn’t win but for good sportsmanship we won ourselves 50 points. That cheered us up heaps.
It was then on for the next round.
We walked through the breeze and saw that there were 3 desks with bowls on each on them. Inside of the bowls there was Spaghetti, tomato sauce and fruit mixed up to make this big piece of blob. We sat down back into our group lines. Miss Peato was the teacher running this challenge. The first challenge was one person from each group had to stand up and eat 1 weetbix and whoever eats the whole thing first wins points. Brandon, one of the people in our group went up to take on the challenge. “3, 2, 1, GO!” Brandon broke it in half and crunched the weetbix in his hand, he then stuffed his face with one half of the weetbix. Once he finished that side he put the other side in his mouth. He opened his mouth and everyone saw that he had finished it first.
It was then onto the next challenge, 3 people from each group had to eat a whole mixing bowl of spaghetti, tomato sauce and fruit. The 3 people from our group were Mary, Lesieli and Brandon. I couldn’t bear to watch them eat that so I looked away.
But I didn't’ want to miss out on all the fun so I peeped and looked at what was happening,
I saw them sculling it all down their mouth, but room 1’s boys won 1st place.
So it was then onto the next challenge.
Out through the breeze and up the street we went into room 2 and saw Miss Clark with pieces of paper, I then realized this was going to be a brain teaser.
We sat in groups on desks, Miss Clark handed both groups a piece of paper and we had to solve 3 problems. 1st problem was a really easy one and the answer was a window, because the question asked us, what is use to see through walls. The other group was still figuring out the question. It was now onto question 2, this one was a bit trickier because it was a maths problem. We got the answer right. Miss Clark said we were the only group out of everyone who got this question right. I was really happy that we got it right. It was then onto the last question, The question stated, there was a boat on the dock, the water level was low but the water levels were getting higher, how deep was the boat under water was it if the water levels has risen. We also go this question right. The answer was “it was not possible because if the sea level had risen the boat would have risen too.”
We were onto our last challenge of the day and the challenge was called Photo Booth. We all had to dress up in funky clothes and see what group looked the funkiest. We weren't that funkey I must admit, but we were happy that we got to spend time as friends and overall had a good day.
