On Friday the 9th of june 2017, We went on the Tough Guy and Gal mud run challenge. We had to run 3k through mud, water and obstacle courses. We had to go through tunnels, under barb wire, over fences and climb up some rope. We had to run through thick mud and up hills to reach the end. When we finished the race we got given a blue loaded drink, a medallion and got to have hot showers.

Image result for MY TIME

Three weeks ago we started my time. My time is where you choose something you want to do and get a buddy or a group of 3 to 4 and every friday you get to do what you chose to do. Everyone in the class did different things e.g tie dye, basketball, cooking and other things. At the end of the term we will all share what we did. We all had to draw up a proposal before we could start and Mrs rendall had to accept them. Everybody is doing something that involves learning somehow like basketball you can learn how to do different skills.

Science/ Procedural Writing

Week 9

This Wednesday we did some science. We researched more than 1 experiment. Next we had to do them but we had to make sure that we had all the stuff at school.
Some people used food colouring, string, plastic cups and lots of others. We had lots of fun doing different projects. Then we wrote a procedural writing piece about the steps to creating what some of the students had made.

Rippa Rugby

On Thursday week 7 Stanley avenue school did rippa rugby there was a man called Bill that did it with us, and it was pretty cool. We all teamed up one on one as we worked on some skills. Then we got into three teams. Two teams were playing and the other team was on the sideline. We had three minutes of playing time and then switched over as the losing team stayed and the winning team went off. Overall we all had a really fun and enjoyable time and we hope you did too.

On the 2nd of March 2017 Stanley ave held a twilight gala. It was on the back field and they held all sorts of stalls. It had rock climbing, paint ball, bumper balls, hang on the jeans, decorate your own cupcake, ice skating, guess the teacher- which had their baby photos, and a live band where Mr Spicer sang. There was also a spin the wheel, which was when you spun the wheel and won prizes, and a sausage sizzle (which was really yum).
A big thankyou to all the volunteers we couldn't have done it without you.
Altogether it was a really fun afternoon at the gala and we hope more people come next year.
