Summer Learning Activity: Week 3 Day 11 Bonus Activity

Bonus Activity
According to the Love New Zealand website, the most popular sports in New Zealand are rugby union, rugby league, netball, soccer and cricket. In your opinion, which of these sports is the best one? On your blog tell us which sport you think is the best. Be sure to tell us why. Give us as many reasons as you can!

Netball because I use to play Netball for school and it was great. I think that netball is a really good sport if a lot of people watched it.


  1. Hi Saveu,

    Welcome to 2017! I see that you've already made time to post 3 blogs and it's only the second day of January. Way to go!!

    I am also a pretty big fan of netball although I had never even heard of the sport until a few years ago. In Canada we play basketball, rather than netball, so I was first introduced to the sport when I moved to New Zealand in 2011.

    Over the past few years I have played netball with my friends in a social league. I have to admit that I'm pretty average at netball because I often forget the rules and start playing like a basketball player. In basketball you are allowed to bounce the ball (dribble it) so I often start to dribble the netball. Ooops!

    Do you play netball in your community or for your school? What is your favourite thing about playing netball? Do you like shooting the ball?

    I hope that you've had the chance to get outside and play some netball this summer. I'm waiting for the rain to stop so that Aronui and I can go outside and shoot some hoops in our driveway. We have a basketball net set up in our driveway so that we can play whenever we want to!

    Wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy 2017!

    Warmest wishes,

    Rachel :)

  2. Hey Saveu,

    Great choice and netball is a very good sport. Fantastic work!


  3. Hey Saveu
    I have only played netball once before so I am not familiar with the rules or how to play. I do know that, it is a great sport. Great job!
