Skipping

Thursday 24 May 2017

Rooms 12 and 11 combined together to do skipping outside on the court. We all spread out and found a space where we wouldn't bump into anyone when we skipped. We all warmed up doing simple easy skipping skills.

We skip backwards, forwards and side to side. When that is all done, we all get split-up into teams. Each team has to come up with ways to work together. Every class in the school is doing a skipping display.

Everyone the goes back to where they were standing. Then we all start to skip. If you stop or got tired you had to sit on the ground.

National Milk Day



Today I thought it was going to be like every other day but then once when every one was drinking their milk photos were being taken. Why? To me this was really suspicious and weird what was going on I thought photo day was over. When I was taking the empty milk cartons back to the Multi Purpose Room I saw Rooms 1, 6 and also Room 7 taking photos out side their Room drinking milk. What is going on today. Then someone told me it was National Milk Day. Oh so that is why everyone is taking photos oh well. Wait whats National Milk Day!?

😀 I'm In The Mood When Cooking Food 😀

Wow, a time to cook food just like the year 8's did.
When we arrived at tech, we all got off the bus and walked to our new place to do some cooking for the first time. I was really nervous because I have never ever cooked a thing in my entire life! We had to wait outside for a really long time. Seconds past by until Mrs Tuipolotu came and welcomed us all inside. She introduced herself to us all. Once we went inside and sat down she talked to us about the food equipment and where it's supposed to be placed, she also told us we'll be making delicious milk shake.

Mrs Tuipolotu told us all to get out a bowl and a hand whisk out of the cupboard and right after that she lead us all to a room and told us to put on an apron that was hanging up on the hooks. It was really hard to tie them up behind us so we had to have our partner help us. When our aprons were on we all washed our hands and went back to our tables.

Mrs Tuipolotu grabbed a box of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate syrup. She put a chunk of ice cream into our bowls and told us to whisk it until it was smooth. After that we put it all into separate cups. When it was all in the cup she put the chocolate syrup in our cups then she topped it with whipped cream with more chocolate syrup on top.

Then we all ate  it up 👍

Back To School

After two weeks everyone's holiday was over and it was time to go back to school. Last term we all had our Anzac service and not many parents came to watch, but some did, so that was good.

Term 2, 1st May 2017 at Ruapotaka School. Today is the first day for term two. Everyone was happy playing and being at school with their friends once again. After morning tea all year 7s went to Room 2 for a talk about Immunization at 11:30 am. We watched a video of children at another school. The video showed children playing soccer and the characters saying that one of the goalies looked very tired or ill and the soccer ball was a sickness and each team tried to keep the ball away from the goal.

A boy that was videoing the soccer was scared of getting an injection and thought it was going to sting and hurt. After they went to go see the nurse and talked about getting an injection they then went to go see what other children thought about getting an injection. The child was more confident about getting  his injection and wanted it straight away, but the nurse said the he needed his parent's permission to have it.

When the video ended all the year sevens went back to class and the year eights went to Room Two for their turn for the Immunization talk.

The Everyday Theatre

Today 3 March Rooms 12 & 11 had two visitors.  They were game masters well not really it was just pretending. There were games and role plays.  It was really fun and every one enjoyed

Room 12 was in class when the bell was about to ring but then came inside.  Two girls with game masters on their shirt came to our room and after fitness room 11 went into our room and then they introduced themselves. Their  names were Vera and Kaitlin and they were doing a play.  Every time we got a bonus point we all got six and we needed 10 to unlock the game . Then Vera was a dad and she wore a beanie and Kaitlin was a mother and she was wearing a scarf. and the main characters were the dad named Dave, mum named Maria, a sad son named T, a friend of T Jack and Bryan. Then toward  the end of the play,  we all did a quiz.  We had four lives and if we won we earned six bonus points.   We already had six points so if we won we will get 12 bonus points and be game winners and ...... we won! Then at the very end Vera and Kaitlin showed us all a special handshake and gave us a special badge called Game Masters.  
 EVERY BODY HAS HOPES AND DREAMS!

How to make a housing joint out of wood

Image result for constructing a housing jointTo make a joint out of wood you start with a 320mm piece of timber wood and cut a piece off the side of the wood and make it the right size for another piece of wood to fit in. If the cut is too big then you would have to start again but if it is too small and can't fit in you can cut a bit more off and make it slightly fit in so it would look like this. That is how you make a housing joint. Watch this video to find out more about housing joints.

Tabloids

On February the 15th was Tabloids. The entire school was split up in their houses. Whero with Meana as leader, Kowhai with Saluselo and Katrina as leaders, Kakariki with Minzin ad leader, and Kikorangi with  Mika as leader. We all lined up behind our coloured flags and then we followed the teachers to start off our activity. It was very hot and everyone would have been sweating and starting to stink.  Every  group went to the teachers with a note and the teacher would give every team a point. The points go up to 5 and the scores are at the office. It was a can do positive day.
