Kauri Team Sports!

Today Room 10 went to Kauri Sports with Rooms 8, 9 and 11. The names of our four teams are Kakariki, Pango, Ma and Whero. I was in Whero.
First my team played the game with no name. For the game, you have fielders and batters, who bat the ball. It goes across the field and the batter runs around in four hoops shaped like a diamond. When the fielders get the ball, they throw it to the backstop who puts it in a circle and says, "stop," and if the batter is not in a hoop they have to go to the back of the line. I thought of a name fore the the game it this is it: "criminal." I chose that name because it's a bit like somebody doing a murder and somebody finding their weapon and sending it to the police who tries to catch the criminal who has been running away.
Next we went to Ruth and played scatterball. This is how you play it: you have fielders, a backstop and a group of people who are the throwers. First a thrower throws three balls and runs, while the fielders have to get them and give them to the backstop who shouts, "stop" and then the next people have a turn, until everyone has had a turn.
Finally we went back to class. I had such an exciting time. I can't wait until next week!
