πŸ“– Tests πŸ“–

Today 26 October Room 12 all had tests. It was the test we all did at the start of the year. We all arranged our desks so we don't look at each others answers. We did maths test first. We all were getting ready for addition. There were two rows for us to fill out and we all had two minutes to finish both rows then we write our names at the top and flip it over. Next we all did subtraction, multiplication and then division. Once we all finished those test we did a spelling test, the teacher says the word an we had to write the word. Then our test were finished for the day!

Last Term For 2017

October the 16th, we are starting off with a new term. Once the loud morning bell rang for everyone to go to their fitness, the teachers in the senior block welcomed all of us back to school. We all lined up outside Room eleven. Then Mrs Golder told us all that it was Chinese language week. She walked out of Room twelve with a poster in her hands that says " ZΓ ijiΓ n" that means ''goodbye''. Afterwards we all went to do our fitness. This term we have cultural groups, tests and speeches. When it was almost time to go home Mrs Golder said "ZΓ ijiΓ n" to us all, then the bell rang. It's going to be a busy term.

πŸ–Œ 🎨 Explanation: Science Experiment πŸ–Œ 🎨

Colour Combination

Can colours change? Yes they can if two or more colours combine with each other it will make a new colour. For example: when blue and red are mixed together it will make the colour purple and purple and blue when mixed together will make green. The reason for the colours changing is because the spinning wheel creates an optical illusion.

On Tuesday it was orienteering with Mr Leon. We were all in Room 11 and we were all sorted into four different teams. We lined up and listened to what we had to do. We all memorized the symbols on the map. When Mr Leon and Mrs Golder said the symbol's name we had to find the symbol. If we chose incorrectly we  had to go to the back of the line. Whoever gets the most points out of the two teams wins. 

After that we had to choose a card that was flipped over and Mrs Golder held it and you had to find what it's name was and this time if you got it wrong you had to try again until you got it right. and the last game we did was a game of snap. When Mrs Golder said the symbol on the map,  whoever picked the right card got the card as well as a point. 

We have one last lesson left with Mr Leon.

Back At Tech For 2017

Wednesday Term 3 2017 and the year 7s and 8s go to Tech. When Mrs Tuipolotu arrived we grabbed out a frying pan and a big pot and waited for our instructions. We received a bowl from her filled with 4 chickens. She wanted one person from each group to bring the frying pan to make the sauce. She put in curry powder, black pepper, brown sugar, Indian tomato and herbs. As we mixed the sauce the chickens were boiling in the big pot on the stove. Then Mrs Tuipolotu gave us rice on a plate. When the chickens were finished we put it in the sauce and mixed it. Once that was done we put the chickens and some sauce on the rice. Then it was ready to eat.

πŸ““Back To School & Back To LearnπŸ““

Two weeks are finally over, term three is just starting and we're halfway through the year. Everyone will be working very hard this year trying to become Better Than Before. This year there will be lots of things to learn and study.

Everyone was excited  to be back at school. There were lots of blue which is the color of our uniform. At assembly Mrs Vickers asked the school. who read books in the holidays.

Half of the school stood up. It was sad to see how many people there were still sitting because that meant they didn't even read one book in the holidays. Reading can help you learn.
