3, 2, 1 Action!!!

Last week we went to the Manaikalani Film Festival for 2016. Once we arrived at the movies we had to wait for all the other schools to exit. It was weird not seeing Pt England and Stonefields in our cinema. Instead we had Glenn Innes, Tamaki College and a Maori school called Te Kura Kaupapa Maori. There were so many great films at the movies especially our movie, The Focuser. I thought that all the schools in our cinema did a very good job creating awesome movies.

Mrs Pine's Math Lesson!

A few weeks ago Mrs Pine came in for a maths lesson on statistics. Some students from Rooms 11 and Room 12 had a maths lesson with Mrs Pine and the rest were with Mrs Vickers. We were told to split into four groups. In my group were myself, Marantha, Sione, Athens and Meafou. It was very frustrating because no one in our group knew what to do especially me but I thought they all did a very good job sharing their ideas.

Our Reading Test Is Today!!!

Tuesday was our Reading Comprehension test day for 2016. All the year 7's were split into Mr Reid's class and the year 8's were in Mrs Golder's. As I looked around the classroom I could see everyone wasn't ready even me. When Mr Reid handed out the pamphlets and answer sheets I started to feel very nervous. Once we started I slowly opened my pamphlet and I already knew half of the questions. Hopefully I passed.

Our Syndicate Assembly

Last week our class hosted the senior syndicate assembly. I thought that it would take a lot of work and time to prepare our assembly but I was wrong. It only took one day to plan this whole item even though we didn't get as much time we needed. After all that practising and memorising we finally worked it out.

Our Experience At Botanic Gardens

Today was the day where our whole school went to the Botanic Gardens! Our morning routine was a bit different than every other day but it was still really fun. Once we arrived all the other classes went their own way and so did we. First we started off at the Rock Garden and continued our way through the Urban Trees, The Forest and the Native Plants Identification Trail. As we made our way out we had a short amount of time to take our last look around the garden before we went back to school. I think that everyone enjoyed their journey at the Botanic Gardens.

Back To School!!!

Yesterday was our first day back at school for Term 4. Everyone was happy to see all their friends again especially me. When the bell rang, instead of doing our daily fitness like we usually do we transferred all our resources from Room 8A back to our class. Once everything was back into our classroom we went back to our normal class routine.

Poetry Recital

Today after morning tea myself, Maranatha and Heilala performed our poem in front of the whole school. It was very frustrating waiting for other classes to recite their poem, but when Mr Meyer announced our names we nervously walked up onto the stage. I think that my classmates both tried their best and put a lot of progress in their poem.

Our Cross Country

On Wednesday we had our cross country race. Mrs Pederson called us to start our run. When we started I was so nervous I couldn't move at all. I  felt so exhausted after my first lap but I still kept my pace and ran until the end. I thought that everyone tried very hard at cross country.

On Wednesday after fitness our class had to go to the court and wait for our coach. When he arrived we started off with a warm up which was just running up and down the court. After that we learnt how to dribble, scissors and jumping back and forth. We all had a very fun time learning how to play real basketball.

I Can't Believe I'm Going To Vector Arena

Last Week Athens, Azahar, Lupe and me were chosen from our class to go to the Vector Arena!!! .We had so much fun that we didn't want to leave Vector. The manager took us for a tour to show us what they actually do - we went to so many different rooms that it was like a maze. At the end of the tour we finally went back to the Basketball Room to have our wonderful morning tea. While we were having morning tea they were handing out prizes at the same time. Some from Room Nine and Ten received one and so did I and sadly that was the end of our tour.

Our Syndicate Assembly

Today we hosted the syndicate assembly. We started planning on Friday and practicing on Monday so we only had two days to finish the entire thing. Once we practiced all our scripts we were ready to roll. Everything was running smoothly just like how we rehearsed it. But the thing was not everybody understood our version of Family Feud. When I was counting the total score for each class I was shocked to see Room 9 1st place, followed by Room 10, then Room 12, and  lastly Room 11. Now everyone knows how Room 12 plays Family Feud.

Back To School

Today was the first day back at school.When the bell rang everyone  sat down in front of Room 1 waiting for Mrs Vickers. Once Mrs Vickers arrived she talked about why the roofs weren't ready because of certain difficulties. After Mrs Vickers left we walked sensibly to our fitness.

Our Liquid Art Experiment

A few weeks ago our class started our third science experiment with Room 11. First of all we wrote down what we needed  to prepare our swirling art. After we prepared what we needed Mr Reid told us to wait outside  for our equipment. Once we added all the ingredients we observed the experiment happen.

Our Duffy Assembly

Last Friday our school had a visitor called Ravinda. She told us about her job, why we have to read and she read us a script from her job. She handed out Duffy books for a person from each classroom. At the end we were lucky enough to get a photo with her.

The Softball Team

Last Wednesday the year 7/8 went to the softball interschools. They played 5 games altogether but they won 2 games and lost 3. They came 7th but that was fine because they tried really hard to come first for our school. There were a lot of students that went to the interschools from Room 12 there were Heilala Maranatha, Anavea, Mika,Timote Junior and more. This is a picture showing the softball team from Room 12 and 11.

Celebrity Show Awards

Yesterday we had our first ever Syndicate assembly for 2016 and  Room 12 were hosting the assembly. We were watching our movie that Sophie Isabella and Pallas made. Sophie was interviewing Maranatha as Katy Perry, the crazy fan, Tyla the makeup artist and Pallas the hairstylist. I was the host at the start of our movie. It was really embarrassing but I was already over it in a couple of day's time.

The Amazing Duffy Show

Today after morning tea our whole school watched an exciting 2016 Duffy Show. Once we arrived at the multi-purpose they were singing a song before they started their play. After we were seated the performance started.  The three performers played the characters: Duffy, Ruby and the Dad.

Yesterday afternoon we had tabloids. After the bell everyone had to meet up outside the staffroom to get split up into our groups. All the teachers bought a vegetable to the tabloids for the five plus a day challenge. Everybody had to play their activities in the shade because it was far too hot. My favourite activity was Mrs Riley's because we had to to hold the potato without using our hands.

Becoming A Prefect

Yesterday at assembly Mrs Vickers  announced who will be prefects for 2016. Our class and Room 11 was anxious including myself. Once I heard my name called up with two boys from Room 11. When I received my badge along with the notice for my parents.
After assembly some teachers congratulated me and I was relieved that I had someone to help me through things.
