On Thursday room 7 and room 10 went for biking lessons with two biking experts, Mr Jarvie and his Assistant. They came from a company called Bigfoot Adventures. Our lesson began in the classroom and it all about helmet safety. Each one of got a helmet. My one was a shiny black with bright red trim and flame stickers. It had an adjustable lining which we were shown how to tighten or loosen depending upon the size of our head. We learnt how to check our bike before leaving the room for the court area. I felt my pulse racing and thought that I was lucky to have this awesome opportunity.
We had partners and mine was Tino. We both smiled and looked around at Mr Jarvie. We grabbed our bikes as they were unhooked from a big shiny trailer. Me and my partner had a green bike. It was as bright as a new leaf in spring. Well I had my own bike because there were sabre bikes. We got straight to the lesson. First we practised to zig zag between colourful plastic cones which dotted the dull grey concrete like an eye catching display and then it got hard the cones got smaller. We practised that upto morning tea. After morning tea. We practised signs we learnt stop left right and had ten minutes free ride. I felt the cool wind blowing across my cheeks and in my dark brown hair. It was a great way to practise bike safety skills. A big THANK YOU to Bigfoot Adventures!

On Thursday two classes from Glenbrae school went to stardom as part of our learning. I was in philip’s group with five classmates.We left on a green bus we got there and the first thing we went to see was the auditorium room. We saw inside the human body as part of our programme. It felt like we were on a journey travelling through inside the human body. We saw the tiny arteries and nervous system including how the heart pumped blood. We also saw astronaut building ship and matariki. The astronaut had to practise under the water.
It was in 3d it was fun inside the stardome auditorium. During the show i felt like I was spinning around in my comfortable seat.http://www.stardome.co.nz/
Mr Andrew who ran the programme and was the Commentator as well warned us about motionsickness and dizziness. .We were sent out to go and look at all sots of space stuff.After we looked at all of the stuff outside we went inside to this room where we learned even more. We watched another movie but this time it was not in 3d. We watched real astronaut in a real rocketship. We learned that being an astronaut is a risk between life and death. We learnt how to brush your teeth is a space and how to use the restroom. We learnt that to be an astronaut you had to be really fit you had to train every single day. After that we returned back to that bus and back to school.
