b. Describe, in your own words, the important events of the first half.

Ans: As the first half of the match started, 9 B scored the first point of the match. Next 9 A sent their teammate Mangesh. Ravi from 9 B did not think that Mangesh could beat their team. When Mangesh was wrestled down, the players as well as the spectators were confident that would lose. However, he proved everyone wrong and with great determination he made it back to his court, scoring three points. When Vivek from 9 A tried to go back to his court, three raiders caught him and pulled him back. But Vivek managed to put his leg beyond the midline with the anti raiders and as a result the whole 9B team were declared out.

c. Write, in your own words, what happened in the second half.

Ans: In the second half, due to their brilliant start, the players of 9 A played with belief. The expert raiders of 9 B, Mohan, Ajinkya and Ravi were caught by the players of the opposing team. It had become impossible to win against 9 A. In the end, the undefeated champs were overpowered by 9 A, as they outplayed 9 B in every area of the Kabaddi game.

All these characteristics along with their proper development will make an excellent Kabbadi player.

6. Read the following note from a school girl’s diary:

Miss Fernandes is our new class teacher. She is slim and fit even at the age of 50. With her gray hair, spectacle and plain formal clothes, she looks so strict!

But we discovered that her classes can be great fun. We begin each class with a simple two minute game or activity. Today we had to write as many words beginning with ‘a’ as we could, within 60 seconds. I wrote 50! I got a pat on my back for making ‘the best effort’! I feel on top of the world.

Write diary entries for the interesting or important events that take place in your school. Write at least two diary entries.


Diary entry 1: 

Today in science class we were taught about microorganisms. I was very excited as our science teacher, Miss Anita, took us to the lab. We learnt about various microorganisms as well as saw them from microscopes! I was also able to observe red blood cells as well as plant cells. It was very fascinating.

Afterwards, Miss Anita taught us about the life cycle of different animals. I was surprised when we learnt about frogs as I never knew that’s how tadpoles would look. I really enjoyed science class today because I learned a lot of new things.

Diary entry 2:

Everyone cheered when it was announced that we would be playing dodgeball in today’s Physical Education class. My friend and I volunteered as captains and picked our teammates for the match. My teammates and I formed a circle and the other team went inside the ring. It was an intense five minutes as we tried to eliminate all the opposing players. Just before the time was up, my friend Sam took out the last standing player. 

Then it was our turn to go in. Since there were alot of athletes in our team, we put up more of a fight. Eventually my teammates were knocked out one by one until I was the only one standing. My friends cheered for me as I dodged one ball after another. Soon the whistle blew and we had won! I was delighted as everyone praised and congratulated me.
