Room Twelves Missing Teacher

 Room Twelve's Missing Teacher

It's the day of Halloween the 31st of October and Mrs Golder has a headache. After fitness Mrs Vickers had to split Room 12 up. We had to take our bags and Chromebook to do our work. . I was with Mika and Timote in Room 1 with Mrs Pederson. When we first approached Room 1 we were excited until.......we opened our Chromebook and our battery was low. So we tread passed our class and went to Mr Reid's class and asked if we could use some of the children's chargers.

Room Twelve's Syndicate Assembly

 Room 12 Syndicate Assembly

 On Monday it was Room Twelve's turn to host the syndicate assembly. I was away on Friday when they were planning it because I had a stomach ache, but I came on Monday when they were hosting it. Some of the people hosting the assembly didn't memorise their lines properly but luckily it was successful.

Back At School

 Back At School

 It is the 10th of October and the holidays are over and now we are back at school. In a few weeks the teachers will begin to test us on our learning. Most people came but a few slept in or just wagged school. I was sort of excited because testing was going to start but I think I just need to listen and try my best.

The Cross Country

 The School Cross Country

 Wednesday 14th of September was when we had our school cross country race. It would have been a week earlier but we weren't  allowed at our school because of the Asbestos testing. I think everyone tried their best. It's unfortunate that we cannot go to the inter-school cross country race because of the situation caused by the asbestos testing.

Basketball Practice

 Last Thursday, we started our very first practice for Basketball and joining us was coach, ?. We tried out new things and the important part is that we actually had fun. Probably once we've finished all our practising sessions, we'll be a basketball professional like Stephen Curry. Hopefully they come next year for my last year in Ruapotaka School.

This morning the entire school had golf practice but by classes. Our coach was a man and he taught us how to aim and how to whack the ball into the hoop. In my team it was Sophie-Isabella, Anavea and me. I think golf was fun and I hope we do it again.

Buddy Reading

Buddy Reading

For the last few weeks we have had buddy reading with Room 7 this year.  Room 7 decided to come to Room 12 so we had to read our books to them. This week buddy reading has stopped so everything is back to normal. Reading is good for us because it helps our knowledge.

Hosting the Syndicate Assembly

 Syndicate Assembly

 It was Room 12's turn to host the Syndicate Assembly. Anyone who didn't have a turn hosting  in the last assembly had a turn in this one. I think Room 12 did very well for planning an amazing assembly. This was my very first time being the assembly host. Hosting the assembly was a little hard because we had to memorise our lines and this was a little hard.

Back To Tech

  Back To Tech

  Every Wednesday Rooms 11 and 12 go to Tamaki College for Tech. We were supposed to be painting but then everyone forgot so we had to continue with our poster. Students working hard on their chromebooks and others were on their posters. We had to create a poster on store and what did it looked like, what it sold and how much it cost.

Yesterday's Assembly

                                       Yesterday's Assembly

 Yesterday I was absent and Rooms 9, 10, 11 and 12 had a syndicate assembly. While they were handing out the certificates I was at home sick. I had never had a certificate this year so I didn't think I would get one. I came to school and some of the year eights were saying that I had got a certificate.

I had thought that they were lying but then after fitness Mrs Golder had told me in front of the class that I got a certificate for handing in my homework on time and receiving an A- for the first time. I was surprised and really happy for myself. Now I know that if I do my homework I won't get into trouble.

Our Science Experiment


 A few weeks ago Rooms 12 and 11 had science together. The first experiment was to make a lava lamp. Everyone was exited because it was fun to look at it.                              



   On Monday all the boys were called up to fill the garden with bark. It looks tiring but they finished it on Tuesday and got a reward. They were a little dirty but they managed to clean the nasty dirt off.
Well Done Boys!!!

On Wednesday in the afternoon the whole school had a 5+ a day tabloids and it was really fun. The best one I thought was Mr Reid's. When we first started I was with Mrs Raj, then to Miss Riley, Miss Buchanan then my favorite Mr Reid. For Mr Reid's we had to try to knock of the coconuts.
