The Holidays Is Almost Here

It's Monday the fourth and we all have just need two more weeks until the holidays. Everyone looked normal, happy to be with their friends playing on the park, I guess everyone was happy that it was almost the holidays especially the teachers. Everyone's report will be going home and soon cultural groups will be starting and the speech finalists who have learned their speech off-by-heart will be performing in front of the entire school. I just can't wait until the holidays.

It's Tuesday. I'm ready to go to school. It's athletics day,  the day when all the fast runners of every class in Ruapotaka school run their fastest and try come first, second and third. As I got to school I saw the athletics running tracks mowed on the grass ready for the afternoon. Once it was noon most of the classes sat under the big tree while the other children were waiting to run like crazy.

Manaiakalani is a yearly event where all schools like Point England  and Glenbrae and other schools make a short film to be screened at  Sylvia Park Hoyts Cinema.

πŸ“– Tests πŸ“–

Today 26 October Room 12 all had tests. It was the same test we all did at the start of the year. We all arranged our desks in rows so we don't look at each others' answers. We did a maths test first witch required us to do addition. There were two rows for us to answer and we all had two minutes to finish both rows. At the end we wrote our names at the top and flipped it over. Subtraction was next followed by multiplication and then division. Once the maths test were finished we went on to spelling this required the teacher to dictate the words and this was the final test 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.
