Today we have been practising our school skip off. The people in our class who did the skip off was Fakaola, Mary-Ruth, Liza and Tristan. They competed against Room 9 and 12. All the people that didn't skip were allowed to watch. A room 9 student, Limiteti didn't really look so tired. Fakaola, who came second looked really tired, she had a red face and was running out of breath. In first place was Limiteti in room 9, second place was Fakaola in room 10 and third was Meana who is in room 12.

Fidget Spiner Quest!!!

Fidget Spiners On The Loose...........

Fidget spinners are all over the world, but a lot of students are taking their fidget spinners to their schools. The real question is do teachers know about this? Okay lets start with Ruapotaka School, the principal of the school has taken a lot of fidget spinners off them. Let's ask myself, do I like fidget spinners? Yes, yes I do! Have I ever brought one to school, obviously yes, have I ever got caught from my principal? No, no I haven't. Why do we kids like to play with fidget spinners?

Penguins, Penguins, Penguins

Today our class was on a website called "Kiwi Kids News". I have chosen a title of the Naughtiest penguin at the National Aquarium of New Zealand in Napier. The name of this penguin is Timmy, what he did was he stole fish and pushed another penguin over. When I read this I was really surprised because I have never seen or heard a penguin be so bad as this one, but I don't really think that this is that bad for just this one penguin.

How do you weave flax?

This week we have been reading a book called "Operation Flax". Yesterday our reading group had to create  our own flax. We had brown paper and some scissors. The first thing we had to do was cut some strips but leave a little gap. Then we had to cut it out again on another paper, then we started going inside outside inside outside as if we were plaiting it but we weren't. Some of us have already finished doing this but to be sure I wasn't.

My Thanks To St Kents

St Kents....
Thanks to St Kents for letting us go to your school and thanks for letting us do sport with you. I hope that you have enjoyed playing games with us and I hope all of our students have enjoyed doing that as well. There were a lot of games that I learned. But I think that most of the games were about team work. My favourite game that we played at St Kents was spider.

Is it called science?

Our teacher has started doing science experiment. We all enjoyed it. What did we do? Well we cut two lemons in half then we poured water in a measuring cup. After that we put all four lemon pieces into the measuring cup but before that our class had a vote, and the vote was "Do you think the lemon would float?". We put all pieces into the measuring cup. The whole class was so surprised that it actually floated. After that we took all the lemon pieces out and cut them smaller and put them into the measuring cup and it floated. We finished it off at the end of the day and our teacher said "Lets see if the lemon will float in the morning."

Enjoy taking my Chromebook home with me

I am enjoying taking my Chromebook home. I can use it for going on google and researching a lot of things that I really want to learn about. Sometimes I go on blog reading and blog commenting but we have a reason why we take our Chromebooks home. The reason is we have to do homework and spelling. I think my teacher has done a good job setting homework for all of us.

Cinquain Anzac Poem

WALT write a cinquain poem on ANZAC.
I started by imagining that I was in war and I used one of my senses which is hearing.I used the colour red because poppies are red. For my background I used red mixed with black. Then I went on a website called ''Drawing Pixel Art'' and then I drew a poppy and placed it on the bottom comers of my poem.

Tuesday, 11 April 2017


As you all know it is getting close to ANZAC Day and my whole class is writing about ANZAC. There were a lot of questions that I had to answer. Some of these questions were really hard but lucky I had a little help with a classmate.

Pest Life

This is my drawing of a lice. I learnt a lot of new facts about lice. Lice are pest that annoy humans and other living beings. I drew this drawing with my friend Fakaola. There are lots of other pest around in this world like mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches and rats. Some pests have something to do by annoying you in other ways. I have done a drawing of Lice because I thought that it was easy and not that big.

Swimming on a hot fine day

We finally get to swim on a hot fine day. We are learning how to do back stroke and freestyle.

Our teacher Miss Misela has been teaching us and now we are getting better which is kind of fun.

Right now our teacher is not teaching us because there are swimming instructors that are teaching us. We're learning a lot and just as well because I think that I need a little help.

Duffy is back and here to present a play about health, water, reading, keeping safe and being better than before. The audience was very interested in the play. We all asked them questions. When we first came into the multipurpose room they were singing how far I'll go from the movie Moana. Then we sang the Duffy Song.
