AUT Millennium Centre
My group was group 4. Our teacher Dawn, gave us each a double-bladed spoon-shaped paddle. We learnt how to use the awesome spoon paddle.
After the lesson of how to paddle, our teacher gathered us up to do capsizing. First I didn’t know what capsizing was, but it was obvious it was rocking the kayak until we fell out.
Finally Dawn launched all the kayaks. They were like rockets. It was harder than I thought it would be.Water safety
Julie was our water safety teacher. She said, “Hop in the water,’’ and we grabbed the edge.
First we learnt how to swim backstroke, doggie paddle and froggie style without the leg moves.
After that we hopped in the inflatable life boat. Then we fell off like a parachute. We climbed back on as if we were rock climbing into the inflatable life boat.
