How to Play Limbo

This week we're learning to write instructions! So we wrote instructions for one our favourite games.

How to play limbo

Things you will need
  • One long stick or pole
  • Limbo music
  • People to play the game, the more the better
  • A large space to play in (a hall, large empty room or maybe a grassy area)

Step 1: Get two people to hold the stick.

Step 2: Get everyone else to make a line in front of the stick. They must be at least 3 steps back from the stick.

Step 3: Start with the sticker high in the air and after each round the two holders must lower it.

Step 4: To start the game play your limbo music.

Step 5: If a player touches the stick or falls down they are out.

Step 6: The winner is the last one standing (the person who can go lowest).

Step 7: You will need a judge to say who is in and who is out.

Cross-Country Races

Guess what? We had cross-country! On Wednesday morning we got to school, we found out we were going to have cross country. I felt excited! We wrote our ages and house on our hands, I'm in Te Arawa. My house colour is red. I got changed into my house colours. Next we went to find my number. Then we sat down, then other people stood up to go running. Finally made it back, my legs were sore. Then we went to clean the mud off our legs. After that we had to go back to class.
