Rugby world cup

Yesterday I went to the rugby world cup game,Ireland v Russia at the Rotorua International stadium. The game went for about two hours.
I nearly made a Mexican wave but the people in the seats were lazy and did not do it but I still had fun.
There were a lot of people cheering for Ireland including me and my family.
It took a long time to get ready because everyone got their face painted.

Sophie and Campbell's RWC video

Sophie and Campbell have used our Flip video camera to get some reasons why we like having the RWC here in NZ.

We are getting better at holding the camera still and it is now easier to put the video clips together on the computer.

We have learnt that we need to pause before pressing stop at the end of recording as the clips overlap when they are all put together.
