Culture Groups

It is nearly the end of the year and for each year there is always a prize-giving following with our culture groups. There is only a short limited time for each culture. Our school only does Tongan, Samoan, Maori and lastly Cook Island. If the students are another culture they can join in any if they want to. Culture groups is going to be a quick activity and then we move on. There are only year eights, sevens and a bit of the year sixes because there are not enough people. The students who are in the groups are just presenting their special dance and their love for their culture.

Changing Fitness Again! 😫😫

Last week Mr Reid  was busy with the athletics team. The rest of the teachers decided to change our fitness while he was busy. They changed it to Chinese Wall. Chinese Wall is a game, there are two teams which is the wall and  the runners. It has to be in a diagonal line and the wall team is not allowed  run through the wall unless your in the running team. Once the runners have run out  of people then that's when they switch sides. It looks hard but you have to work as a team and then maybe it will look more easier. It is an enjoyable game and it's fun to play.

Disruptive Sounds of Thunder

Today the weather has been strange. During reading we have been hearing some weird noises. It  sounded like thunder and lightning. The weather has been changing from rainy, sunny and dark clouds. To reduce the clatter and disruptive noises our teacher said, "Close the windows and keep reading."

It was quite windy as well but luckily I had my jumper on. I hope when tomorrow comes there will be a change in the weather and it will hopefully be better. If it is sunny we can play outside which is my preference.

School Assembly

This Monday the entire school had to strolled quietly to the multipurpose room. Mrs Vickers was talking about all the safety rules when your going trick or treating. She also talked about always have someone over 18 years old to look after you if something happens, she also talked about being good because next week we are all going to the Manaiakalani Film Festival but except the naughty people. So we are trying to be the best we can.

Test Are beginning!!

This week we sat our tests and nearly everyone of us were nervous because we didn't know there was going to be a test. The subjects of the tests were maths and spelling. For the maths test we were given two minutes to complete the sheet. There were four maths sheets which were separately handed out. They were multiplication, division, subtraction and addition. For spelling Mr Reid just pronounced the word and we had to spell it. I was shaking but I tried my BEST!!

Goals For Term 4! 😊

Today we are writing up our goals. We had to do a goal for every subject except inquiry. My personal  aim is to concentrate on my education because next year I will be going to college. My reading goal is read more often at home, my writing goal is to use more academic words in my writing and my maths goal is to show evidence when solving problems. I'm going to  try and achieve my goals  and be BETTER THAN BEFORE!!

Fitness Was A Disaster

Today is a new week and for every week our fitness changes. For this week's fitness we are doing relays. Because the year 7 & 8's were disorganised, and didn't order the teammates and telling them how to do it, the year fives and sixes were standing there looking around  figuring out who to pass the baton to. They didn't know who their teammates were before they left for the field. But we will be trying again tomorrow and it fails we will be doing Ms Riley's fitness which is circuits. But at least tomorrow we can try to be successful and be better than before.
