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.

Image result for Waimarino

Last week the senior syndicate went to Waimarino for year 7\8. There was the blob which you had to wear a life jacket and a helmet. There was the UFO it had a trampoline and a mini blob, a slide and a rolling pin. There is a big diving board and a little diving board and a rope swing it was a long drive but it was all worth it. There was also a slide Mrs Rendell has still got a sore bum from it. The first half of the day we got to enjoy all of these activities. The second half we spent it kayaking. The kayaking was lots of fun, but mine tipped over and sunk. Lots of people showed they had some skills standing in the kayaks and we had to make long chains called rafting-up. It was heaps of fun.

This term our school had yr 7 and 8 camp we climbed up the mountain. It took more than 2 hours to get up there and I died. It was so hard to get up to the top but I managed, plus the view was so worth the hard work we put in. We had lots of helpers and parents it really means a lot.

On Monday we started the week off with a splash! It was great to see so many students giving it their all at Swimming Sports. Thank you so much to all the parent helpers, we could not have done this day without you. Good luck to all those selected to go to Districts Swimming Sports this Thursday.

This week at school we had Tuakana Teina. Room 2 was split into two groups. Half went to room 9 and half went to room 11. In room 9 and 11 we found some juniors to be our partners and got to know each other, by asking and answering some questions. After that our teachers came around and asked questions that we had learnt about the younger students. It was really awesome to get to know the younger students in the school.
