Term 4 Has Arrived 📚

We are back from the holidays and it's time to activate our brain and start learning. This term is going to be the best term, I thought. Until my teacher said that there will be a test next week. I received an message from the college saying that there were be a test on 30th November. It had me worrying for several days. I said to myself that "I have to work twice as hard then I might pass the test". 📚

Colour Change

This week our class did an experiment on changing colours. All of us started of with drawing three circle, then cut them out. After that you have to color the circle the first one is blue and red, the second one is green and blue lastly red and green. We use a nail to poke a hole in the circle and then put the string through the hole. Now you can spin the disc/circle in the same direction. Our class had fun with the disc.

Duffy Assembly

On Tuesday we had a duffy show and the role model was Michel Mulipola. He was an artist and pro wrestler. He illustrated many books for children like comics and school journal, he told us that his favorite superhero was green lantern. He talked about how he became an artist. He showed us some of the drawing. I kind of like him because he is a funny man.

Cross-Country


Everyone was excited to come back from the weekend and do some running on the street. It was amazing to see the year 4s doing running with us. I was so pumped at first then after doing 1 and a half lap I was exhausted, so I walk for a little. When I went around I saw some amazing runners from year 4 right up to year 8. At the end some people went for a drink and some were just relaxing on the ground.

Tech Switch Over


Today was the day that the year 7's and 8's switched over to a different activity at Tamaki College. The year 7 students had Mr Pineda's class 'Graphics' which was our previous class. The year 8's including myself, went with Mr Grundy's 'Workshop' and our topic is currently glass. Before we get started Mr Grundy WARNED us about what would happen if we didn't follow the rules with respect. Mr Grundy has strict rules but are very safe. The first thing was drawing our designs. My favourite sketch was a castle.

Orienteering

We have orienteering every Tuesday, our guider or teacher, was Mr Leon and he showed us a few symbols on the map of our school. On the first day, Mr Leon gave us all a clip card. All clip cards were unique because they each had different numbers. It was a bit tricky at first because the clippers were not alphabetical order. The same day, we all walked around the school with maps. Sadly people had their maps taken off of them because it was not facing North. The next week, Mr Leon came back and handed us all a clip card and a map. We had to clip the card by using the map to find our destination.
