Making A Movie😁


For the past few weeks some of the classes have been trying to create a movie. My class's movie is about How To Be A Good Rugby Player. Nearly two times a week we go out to film. While we are doing that the rest of the children have to be absolutely quietly so that we can focus and get the filming done. I think that the idea is excellent because it's about the New Zealand history.

Orienteering 😫

Today was extremely entertaining because Leon (orienteering teacher) came in our class to teach us the symbols and other stuff. Now we are receiving a map and a clip card. You have to run around with the clip card and stamp the letter and on the map it tells you where to go. At first before it started I believed that it would be restless but at the end it actually and seemed a lot easier but I still managed to do it. It was tiring but fun. 😁

Back At School And Ready To LearnπŸ€”

Today is the start of school and term three has begun. I knew from the smiling expressions on the students' faces that everyone wants to learn and be better than before. In the assembly our Principal asked us to stand up if we read in the holidays.  She was shocked at the numbers, but in a good way and a little disappointed with the people who didn't read. But today was a good day at school. 😁

Room Twelves Karaoke Performance

This Wednesday all of Room 12 is going to sing a song called "How Far I Go" by Alessia Cara. We are going to sing it in front of many parents in the library. We have been practicing hard because we have to do it without the words. Everyday after fitness we repeat the song three times, one with the lyrics then the rest without words and the sound of the person singing is quiet. Our teachers keep a good eye on us to see if we actually sing. We are being BETTER THAN BEFORE! The Song

St Kents Day😎😁

Last week a group of people had been chosen to go to St Kents to play some games and sports. When we arrived, there were three boys waiting for us so they could take us to the court. We are so lucky because only a few people where selected to go. We were all split into 5 groups and were each taken away in to separate places to play lots of fun games. It was entertaining, we sang a Maori song. Later on we sang a happy birthday song to Musica because it was his birthday. Near the end of the activity we said "thank you." Finally we went back to school.

Skipping Is Coming Up!πŸ˜„

πŸ˜„Very soon my school ( Ruapotaka School) is going to have an event called Skipping. Every year all the classes do a display then we have a skip off. If you want to win, your stamina and your skipping have to be good. When we do the skip off we stand in separate spaces so no one gets muddled up. Then you skip for as long as you can. Later one of the teachers will say, "Double under" and that's when it gets hard. And the last three who skip the longest get a special certificate for coming first, second or third. So we are practicing hard.

Daily Fitness Is Tiring😫

 Everyday we have been running for our fitness for 10 minutes. Some people either walk, talk or they actually do it which is jog. We are not suppose to walk or sprint we are meant to be  keeping a steady pace so we don't run out of energy. Running is tiring but it helps us keep fit and strong. Running is very important especially if you are lazy. You have to at least try.

Today is an incredible day because it is National Milk Day. We get milk from Fonterra. They provide milk for us and makes us fit and healthy. Every school now has milk delivered to them. We have milk and drink it at morning tea. Milk comes from the cows udder's then farmers have to milk them. After we drink our milk we have to fold the carton in a certain way. So drink milk and stay strong. πŸ₯›

We Made History! πŸ˜…πŸ˜

We traveled to Tamaki College by school van and arrived at Point England Reserve for the epic interschool soccer tournament. We played against Glen Taylor first and won 1-0, then Tamaki Primary and we lost 1-0. We had a talk about what we did wrong and which positions we were goning to play.
We played against Sylvia Park and won 1-0, then Saint Patrick and won 7-0. We played against Stonefields in the finals. It was a tough game and no one won so we came first equal place with  the school. Dakbai got the most goals and their wonderful and supportive leader, me, got a MVP (Most Valuable Player).

We are  2017 CHAMPIONS!😊😊

Back At School Term 2 πŸ€”πŸ˜¬

Term 2 is when we all began to go to school again and I was extremely excited because my holidays were dull. We all collaborated well in our work and kept learning different stuff. Easter and Anzac Day were the two remarkable events in our holidays. Anzac Day is a day to commemorate because of all the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for us. Easter is celebrated because of Jesus's resurrection from the dead.

Tech With No Chromebooks ☹

This Wednesday the year 7 and 8 students went to Tech without their chromebook because our teachers said not to. All the year eights are doing cooking and all the year sevens are doing woodwork.
The year eights made some delicious spicy hot chicken nibbles, unfortunately it was too hot. But it was still tasty.

Our Funny Visitor πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ‘

 Today a special visitor came and his name was Robert Rakate and he is from the Brown Wiggles. He came to our school with Henry to inspire us to read. Robert was very entertaining and funny. He was telling us about his year eight son who doesn't clean his room and his favourite book that was written many years ago.

Cooking Lessons (Tech at Tamaki College)

Every week the year 7 and 8 students travel by bus to Tamaki College. Last year there were three classes but we have less students so there are only two now. We do cooking with Mrs Tuipolotu and woodwork with Mr Grundy. I think everyone likes tech because it is fun.

The First Duffy Show 2017

 Today the entire school walked to the multipurpose room for the Duffy Show. It was about a super girl called Millicent from another world
 who was sent to fix the Planet Earth's global problems. She doesn't know how to read so she creates more problems for Earth. Duffy had to help her read and together they save the world. And everything went back to normal.

The First Syndicate Assembly



On Tuesday Room 12 was hosting the first Syndicate Assembly of 2017. It was funny because near the end we did a Dance Competition. Me and Azahar went to the seniors to get two or more or less people and wrote their names on a piece of paper. Sadly Room 12 couldn't be considered for our placings. The winners were Room 10 . Here are the champions video.
