Badminton - Week 4

Badminton today was really fun because we got to play a rally using a backhand grip. 

This week for Badminton Kevin our badminton tutor taught us where and how to hold the racket when were going to do the backhand technique. First in order to do the backhand, your thumb has to face yourself and the rest of the fingers needs to be around the racket's handle and that's how you hold a racket if you are going to do a backhand grip.

To play a rally we had to find a partner and I decided to go with Tai. First Mrs Anderson and Kevin show us how to do a rally using backhand. We were told that one person needs to do a forehand and the other needs to do the backhand.

Tai said he wanted to do the forehand since it is easy for him and I wanted to do the backhand because I wanted to be able to do the backhand easily. Tai and I played really well and we managed to get 20. Unfortunately I couldn't beat my high score with Miki becuase before me and Miki got 34. Next time I am going to beat this high score.
However I had lots of fun and I really enjoyed Badminton.

Manaiakalani Film Festival 2017 - 10 Anniversary!!

Yesterday we went to the Manaiakalani Film Festival for 2017 at the Sylvia Park Hoyts. It was going to be a great day because it was the 10th anniversary of the Manaiakalani Film Festival that Panmure Bridge School was celebrating.

We couldn't make it to the Sylvia Park in time because the bus was late and since the bus was late we missed our first session, however we managed to book another session. When we arrived at Sylvia Park we walked over to Hoyts and waited for approximately 45 - 60 (1 Hour) minutes. As soon as we walked in we saw LS1 from Panmure Bridge School's movie - I've got a bad feeling about this.

After a few moments our second session started. We watched most of the schools in our cluster's movies. The schools we watched were - Tamaki Primary School, Point England and our school. I really enjoyed watching all of the fantastic movies people created. My favorite film was LS1's and Sugar Rap made by Tamaki Primary School. Something I learnt from the Sugar Rap is that I should not eat things that contain lots of sugars. As soon as we got back to school we got the link to all the movies and we got to leave a positive comment on the movies we watched.
