Our Spinning Wheel

This week our class tried out an Science Experiment based on changing colors. The first step was to trace out three circles that is 10 cm long. The second step was to color the first desks red and blue. The second desk was red and green and the third was green and blue. We had to get a string that was 1m long and poke two holes in the circle and thread the strip through the holes. We then had to spin it really fast till you see the colors change.

Daily Fitness

Cross Country is coming up and we have already started to run around the streets for our daily fitness. I always huff and puff while I'm running down and up the hills. Whenever I run round the corners and see the teachers staring at the students it just gives me goosebumps all over my arm and at the same time I try my hardest not to stop. We have to run 2 laps around the block. The first lap was not that tiring but my second one was so hard. I try and try to get used to it.

Our New Routaion

At tech we were rotated to another class which was wood work.The first thing he said before we went in was that this is a dangers class and we had to act two years older that we are. We had to sit on a stool and listen to Mr Grandy explaining what we were dealing with. It was glass we were dealing with. So he showed us what to not do and what to do. The one thing you should not do is to glide your finger across the side of the glass you just cut a minute ago. Because your hand will start bleeding and make a big mess.

We then had to decorate twelve different designs on a peace of paper. We had to finish all the designs before moving on to make your projected.

Orienteering

Yesterday was a terrific day for orienteering. Even though the weather didn't turn out as I expected I still enjoyed it anyway. Once I collected my piece of paper and map I set off looking for controls. It was so tiring for me because I was running from one control to another. As I was running I felt a slight bit of chill so that slowed me down. As soon as I finished I casually made my way to Mr Leon and waited for the rest of my class mates to finish their courses.

Our Pasifika Study Performance

Today at our special assembly every class performed an item based on Tonga and Samoa. Every class had different performances. Room 1 and 4 performed a traditional Samoan dance called a 'Sāsā'. Followed by Room 5 who presented a song called 'Le Aute'. The most interesting performance was Room 6's. They performed a Catwalk where the students were partnered with each other into girl with a boy. Some of the girls were wearing a puletaha(Tongan), some were wearing a puleetasi(Samoan). The boys were wearing a sote and a tupenu tide with a gafa. 

We sang a song called 'How Far I'll Go' from the movie Moana. I was so nerves that I started to stare at the floor throughout the whole song. I enjoyed every bit from the beginning to the end.

The First Day Back

Our 2 weeks holiday has unfortunately ended and we are back at school. We started off with running for our daily fitness at 8:55 am. It was tiring because it was our first day back at school. But it was worth it because we can become fitter and fitter every day. After we finished fitness we organised our lunch time duties, bell monitor and staff room duties. We then moved on to our maths followed by reading. Straight after lunch we had or first school assembly for term 3. We finished off our day with blogging and cloze reading.
