On Monday 26th of February Room 10 hosted their first Syndicate Assembly for 2018. For their song the class selected This Is Me and Better When I'm Dancing. They did a senior dance battle with two people from all rooms.
The first classes were Room 10 verses Room 9. For that dance Room 10 won, then they danced against Room 12. Apparently they won their own syndicate dance battle,  then it was time to go back to class.

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.

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.
