Swimming Pool Description

Today I am going to write about the swimming pool at St Pius X School courts.

It is as warm as a spa, the water is as blue as the sky, the pool a as deep as a pond and the pools waves are a bit like the sea.

Our swimming pool is in a marquee, when you get out of the swimming pool it smells. It is 15 meters long, and 1 meter deep sometimes the swimming pool can be cold.

The maximum of people in the swimming pool is 16. The pool is from the Mt Wellington Trust because they want us to learn to swim.

It’s fun in the swimming pool because you can do lots of swimming and have free time too.

Swimming Recount

One week and 3 days ago we had swimming, a swimming pool arrive. It was fun at swimming, we had two instructors. They were a man and a woman and their names were Jillian and Kevin.

We learned new things every single day. We learned how to do arm circles, arm circles are when you put your hand under the water and lift it back up into the sky and bring back to the surface of the water and do the same thing over and over again.
We also learnt how to do torpedoes, torpedoes are when you kick the wall and dive under, we also did gliding and floating. It was fun, we had races and challenges when we did challenges, you had to get to the other side without standing up. After challenges we had races, we had to get into pairs, you are given a number, you have to remember what number you are so when the instructor says your number you can do anything you want to get to the other side, but if you stand up your other teammate wins.

Our water in the swimming pool is warm but sometimes it is cold. There was two groups, I’m in the second group, the maximum of people in the group are 12.

After all the lessons are finished you get free time, if you're quick, otherwise you have to get out of the pool.

It’s fun swimming because you can do anything but first you need to learn how to swim. In the swimming pools it is sometimes cold but most of the time it is warm, I swam with other students in the swimming pool. it’s fun swimming in the swimming pool because there is are instructor to help you in the swimming pool my favourite thing to do in the swimming pools is floating because you relax.

My Pencil

Pencils are made out of wood, when you sharpen them they get sharp and pointy. If you sharpen them too much they will become small.

Inside pencils it is called a lead, you use the lead to draw and write with. You can break it but it is hard to break, the pencils are very useful for making things colourful.

You can write or draw with pens, felts, colour pencils and paintbrushes. You can draw or write on cardboard, paper or coloured paper.

They feel hard as a rock and are seen or found in the classroom, draws, containers and in your school office.

Pencils are shaped as circles and hexagons. You can create with the pencil as well like shading and drawing light and hard.

Pencils are better than pens because when you make a mistake you can rub it out but if you use a pen and you make a mistake you can’t rub it out. That's why pencils aa why better than pens.
