Our Amazing Science Experiment

This Week my friend and I are permanently working on a science experiment called Colour Changing.
Basically you have to use a strong cardboard and draw three perfect circle and then colour it in. When you finish the drawing it won't spin it self so you have to use a one meter string.

At this point you are ready all you have to do is spin it fast as you can or the experiment will sadly fail.
If you achieve your a spinning 90% it will work it depend how you let it go. If you let go in a right direction  it will work but if you do it in a wrong way don't even try. When you finish you will see the result of the colour.

πŸƒπŸƒCross Country πŸƒπŸƒ

Today is a big day for the year 7's and 8's because we had cross country for fitness that is the most exhausting sport. We had to run two lap around the street and the finishing time depend on how fast you run.

The lap will increase every next week for the year 8's and 7's it will be 4 laps and for the fast runners it will be at least 5 laps if they have time. I was able to run on the first and the second day but I became sick and wasn't able to run any more but today I tried my best to run.

Hopefully I will get better and then I can run again.

πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰The Return Of Technicraft πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

On Wednesday we had some changes at Tech about what we were going to do for Term 3. There were 3 classes and only 2 of them were available because there were a small amount of people of Year 7's and 8's. 
The two classes that were available were Glass and graphics and the year eight's are doing the Glass, so that meant that the year seven's were in the Graphic class.

Our teacher's name is Mr Grundy and he's a professional at doing stain glass and pewter. We will be working in this class for a pretty long time because our teacher 

Mr Grundy told us that we are working with him for the next 13 more weeks. 
For our first task we had to create a design for our Glass design and it was really hard thinking of a design because there were a lot of good ones. The design that I choose was a car but it wasn't available because there were too many curve but luckily I had a second design and that is a boat.

πŸƒπŸƒOrienteering πŸƒπŸƒ

On Tuesday the year 8 and 7 had to do a activity called orienteering. Orienteering is about how good you are at reading map. We line up near the junior park to get our map and our clip card. When we received the two objects we all strolled off to our clippers. I was confuse at the beginning but my friend and my teachers help me. Everybody got use to the map in a couple of minutes but I was still confuse when the activity was ended.
I enjoy running around the school and clipping my paper.

😐😐 Ōur Ŝtunning Δ€ssembly 😐😐

On Friday 28th July, Ruapotaka School had an amazing assembly. We performed our entertaining items in front of the entire school.  There were different performances from different classes and the first class was Room 1, followed by Rooms 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, then it was finally our turn to show off our item.  
I was really nervous when we all stood up and strolled to the stage because we were about to sing an amazing song called 'How Far I'll Go' by Alessia Cara.  All the students' opinion on the singing was negative but our teacher thought it was on point.

😒The Return Of Term 3 😒

It's time to give up our relaxing days and get back to learning because today is the first day of Term 3. I was really excited to come back to school and learn. When I arrived at school I thought I was early but I was nowhere near close because the seniors were already doing fitness. But I was lucky that they just started fitness so I was still able to join in and jog with my friends. Our first activity for term 3 was running around the senior block for 10 minutes.

🌠🌠🌠Matariki 🌠🌠🌠

Last week, Room 12 were learning about Matariki and how it is special to Maori people. Matariki is the Maori name for the cluster of stars also known as the Pleiades. Matariki rises in mid winter (during late May or early June.) For many Maori, it heralds the start of a new year. Some celebrations last up to at least three days or less, possibly more. Many people around New Zealand fly kites, light fireworks, perform a kapa haka and have special dances at festivals. Matariki is really a special event to be remembered, carried on in the future and to be celebrated.
