Ki O Rahi

This week for HPE we learned how to play Ki o Rahi.

Rules for Ki O Rahi : Ki O Rahi are 5 minute quarters with an immediate change at quarter time and a 2 minute break at half time. The sport is non-contact but players wear a belt holding two velcro tags around their waist. Shirts must be tucked in at all times. No watches or other jewellery are allowed to be worn during play.

First, Coach Lucas teaches us what Ki o Rahi is. Ki o Rahi is a Maori game. if you have the ball you have to run and touch the long yellow stick. When you touch it all you have to try and score by touching the middle with the ball. If you are near the bin (tupu) you have to try and block the ball from touching it so the other team doesn’t get a score. You first have to wear a belt and 2 ripper tags on the side of your hips. if your teammate passes the ball to you, you have to catch it and throw it at the tupu to get a point.

Next, Lucas told us what equipment we need. We need 1 tupu (central target), approx 40 gallon drum or rubbish bin, 7 pou, Ki woven flax ball, normal ball, and field marking. 

Afterwards, Lucas picked people to be in the red team and yellow team. I was on the red team. For example: he picked a boy to be in the red team and the other team yellow.

Lastly, we had one more round to see who won the game. The team who won was the red team.

I enjoyed doing HPE. I did well at catching the ball and passing it on to the others. I need to improve on being the target.

Burbes & Runs

This week I learned about Burbes.

Burbes is where you start with a jump squat and get into your starting position with both of your feet flat on the floor. get into a blank position. Do a Push-up on your toes and to jump back to your feet & repeat.

First we started off with a warm up exercise. For the warm up we had to go up to 10 all the way to 2. For example : You would do 10 runs, 10 burbes, 8 runs, 8 burbes, 6 runs, 6 burbes, 4 runs, 4 burbes, and 2 runs, 2 burbes.

Next we had to find a partner to practise doing the runs and burbes. For my partner it was Me and Armani. Me and Armani started to do runs and burbes. For the runs we had to run all the way to the yellow line and back to the cones by doing burbes.

Then Miss Morris picked the partners to do it with again. She picked Me and Lila to do it. Me and Lila were doing it right until we were the 4th person but we said it doesn’t really matter.

Lastly we had to do them all together again. We had 30 burbes but at the same time. For example: If Valencia was my partner we would wait until the teacher tells all of the people to do 1 Burbes and then 2 Burbes all the way up to 30.

I enjoyed doing this kind of PE. I did well at doing the runs and burbes. I need to improve on moving faster.


This week I learned how to practice softball.  First I had to make sure I was playing the 2 games right.  I played musical cones and picked up the cones.

How to play musical cones and you have to pick up the cones before the music stops. Next I played another game called pick up the cone before the other one does. For example, there’s a cone in front of you and you have a partner.  The person calls out an action and you have to do it.  You also have to pick up the cones before the other person does.

After I played softball, I had to get my partner and get gloves and a ball.  By throwing the ball you have to throw with your non dominant hand.  Lastly, I picked up all of the stuff and said thank you to the teacher that was teaching us.

I enjoyed putting away the stuff.  I did well at using at non dominant hand.  I need to improve on throwing the ball harder.
