Hip Hop With JessπŸ’ƒ

Today we had Hip Hop with Jess. Jess wanted us to first start off with a warm up and then started dancing. In the warm up we did some stretching and some head movements, we also had to practice  doing the wave starting from the tips of our fingers. 

After that we played a game of musical statues, when the music stopped we had to either sit down, do dance moves and more. As soon as we finished playing our game we moved into our groups that we were put in to finish our group dance. In the end Jess called us out to do our dancing in front of the class, my group was up first.

Later on, the last group was up to do their dance and it was pretty cool, they had some Fortnite dances and made up dances in their dance. Some of the groups were shy, but they made it through strong.

πŸ“– Buddy Reading πŸ“–

Yesterday 29th of May we had buddy reading with Room 6. When they arrived at our classroom they were split one by one to go and work with a year 7 or year 8. When the year 3s were all separated we then started reading our blogs to them.

I was working with a boy named Ray. He was so interested in what he was seeing on my blog and on Room 1's blog! He was also excited just to see my drawing from Tech. Ray was only 9 so he wasn't particularly interested in the writing so I just showed him my drawings and then read him one of my story's.

As soon as the Room 6 students lined up they left to go back to their classroom. After that we then had to get back with our learning and concentrate.

Making An Egg Burger

Today at Tech we made healthy egg burgers with some tomatoes and onions. It was a quick and easy burger to make. The teacher, chef, Mrs Tuipulotu, said it was better than the Big Mac at McDonald's, but I can't lie it actually was. I worked with a friend of mine, Riiana and it was cool.

The burger was very easy to make because all we had to do was add oil to the pan. Then put the front left element to 180*c, as soon as we did that we had to crack four eggs into the pan and leave it. We then had to collect our vegetables and slice them, when the eggs were ready we had to put the eggs on a plate and leave it to cool down. Seconds later we had to collect the buns and put all the ingredients together. In the end the burger turned out to be a perfect and healthy burger.  

This week was the last week so we had to make a quick one and start blogging. Next week we will move onto Mr Grundy's class and we'll be crafting.

The Football Inter School Tournament

On Wednesday we had our Football tournament at Point England Reserve. In our team we had 11 people in our team plus me and the two teachers.

Once we arrived at the Reserve there were a lot of schools already there getting ready. So when we parked up we went straight to our spot on the field, as soon as we were there we were told we had 6 games against other schools that was there. Our teacher said that we only had a short brake before we play our first game, so we then started practising on a field right in the front of us.

After that the big horn went off and that meant our first game was going to start so we went into our positions. Our first game was against Panmure District and the score was 0-6. We were happy we won our first game, but we lost some games and had a draw for some games. People in our team was fine with how much loses we had, but our captain kept on saying "work as a team".

In the end we were told that we came last with another school called Panmure District.

Our Daily Fitness!!

On our first day back at school we had to start running laps for our fitness. We had to jog around the entire senior block, including the basketball and netball courts. Teachers spread themselves around the block . There is one teacher (Mrs Golder) who stands at the top of the hill with her phone timing us. We only run for 10 mins and when it's over we line up where we started from.

We start the running routine at the bottom of a hill and work our way around the block. Lap by lap people would be yelled at to start running because they walk too much. Some people can keep up the pace because they are fit and they practice a lot, but some are just good runners. Most of the good runners in the senior block are from Rooms 12 and 10, and there are only a few of fit runners in Room 9.

In our daily fitness we have some rules that we have to follow. The rules are:

1. If you are a slow runner move to the left

2. If you are overtaking move slightly to the right

3. When you are tying your shoelaces, move aside.

The Big Storm

The 10th of April was one of the worst nights of my life because it was the biggest storm to ever hit Auckland. Experts say that it was the natural wind tunnel that caused the big hurricane-force winds. My opinion was that the wind was just getting stronger and stronger. News reporter Duncan Garner was mad at officials for not being prepared for the huge storm coming their way. An expert had said that the storm started from the Tasman Sea and then worked its way up to South Auckland and then around the whole of Auckland. Most people in Glen Innes had their power cut and it was very dark. They had no power because a tree fell and wrecked the power lines. In the morning things were very disorganised like trees being broken and power lines hanging down.

The Commonwealth Games

In the Commonwealth Games a 11 year old girl known as Anna Hursey is a Table Tennis expert. She is from Britain and a representative from the Wales.

When Anna Hursey was just 5 years old she was already  playing Table Tennis. Whilst she was still 10 she wanted to join the Commonwealth Games, so she did. She competed for Wales in the European Championship qualification match against Kosovo and  she also competed in the World Cadet Challenge in the same year. 

During the year of 2018 she competed in the Commonwealth Games with Carey. They both played against another double from India known as Madhurika Patkar and Mouma Das. Obviously Hursey and her partner claimed the victory with a score of 3 to 2. Anna Hursey is hyped for her next matches.
