Road safety is very important. Nearly everyday you are on the road. The grade fours at the school I go to do Bike Ed this term. It is all about learning how to ride your bike safely on the road and even the footpath (sidewalk for some people). It is very important to learn these rules so when you get older you know how to be safe.

A lady from the RACV (Royal Automobile Club Victoria) came to the grade fours at the school I go to. She told us all the road safety rules, well at least most of them. It was really interesting to find out all of these rules.

I am going to tell you a few of them she told us:

  • Always wear a helmet because if you are wearing a helmet you have two things protecting your brain. If you don’t have your helmet on, that’s bad. Your brain is the only thing that can’t heal in your body.
  • Wear bright coloured clothes when you are riding in the dark.
  • Wear runners. You wouldn’t see someone in high heels riding their bikes, would you?
  • Ride with a parent or a parent near you until you are twelve.
  • Wear a well fitted helmet
  • Never wear any type of hat under your helmet, your helmet could slide off when you are riding.

Here is a picture of my brother and I on our bikes when we were younger (my brother had my old bike):

What is your Favourite Sport?

Hello everyone, today I want to know your…  Favourite Sport! 🙂
 

My favourite sport would probably have to be netball. Netball is such a fun sport! I know heaps of people who love and play netball. I play netball every Friday. Friday is my favourite day and netball is my favourite sport so Friday is perfect. I like to play GD (Goal Defence), GK (Goal Keeper) and GA (Goal Attack). GA is shooting and GK and GD are defending the shooters on the other side.

Here are three important rules in netball:

  • You are not allowed to step when you have the ball
  • You need to stay three metres away when you are defending
  • You have to have at least seven players playing in your team or you are not allowed to play

When you do something wrong in netball it is called obstruction. Your opponent gets to have a free pass and you are not allowed to defend. You have to stand next to your opponent.

Here is a photo of a netball:

Happy Mother’s Day

On Sunday it was….

 Mother’s Day!

I got this idea off Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan. Here is the link to the post: Happy Mother’s Day

I was so excited on Sunday morning to give Mum the presents I got her. I jumped out of bed, got the presents and ran down to my mum and dad’s room. After Mum had looked at the presents I asked, “Did you like the presents?”

She replied, “I love them!” 

The things I got her were a vanilla car freshener, a shopping list that said ‘World’s Greatest Mum’, toffees (lollies) and a picture snow globe. But it wasn’t any ordinary snow globe, you could put a photo of your family in it. My brother also had gifts and my dad also bought some things. We had a Mother’s Day stall at our school so that’s where my brother and I got our gifts.

Here is a PhotoPeach:

 

My mum means the world to me. She is special in every way. I love her because she cooks and buys yummy food, she has a nice smile, she is very funny, she works to make money and she takes us to special places. She isn’t the only one that earns the money though, my dad does too. 🙂

 Hope you enjoyed that post!
