Funny Syndicate Assembly!!😆😅

The first syndicate assembly was so hilarious that I nearly bursted out into tears. I couldn't even catch my breath. It started off like this . . . . .

It was Room 12's turn to host the first ever syndicate assembly for Term 2 2017. We decided to do an epic assembly. Mika started it of we a BANG with an incredible introduction. Afterwards, we sang a song from the kids movie "Moana." The song was about an adventurous girl who lives in a village and to save her island. The song is called "How Far I'll Go." That's when it started to get hilarious. We did an epic "Lip Sync Battle." It was cool and interesting to watch them lip sync to a song they choose.The funniest class was room 10, Peni and Dominic. They sang to a song called "Let It Go" in the movie "Frozen." This first syndicate assembly was funny!

The First Tech Of Term 2!!

My first tech in term 2 was kind of okay, mostly because I didn't do much work on my project that I was working on. It was a "Recipe Card Holder" for my mother because it is nearly Mother's Day. That was the first reason why I decided to do it. The second reason was because my mother loves baking and cooking. I also thought of doing some Samoan patterns. I did it along the sides with a very sharp pencil. Afterwards I showed it to Mr. Grundy, our teacher for woodwork. He said after I did the patterns, I could use a permanent maker to over-line it. The first tech for term 2 was terrific!

Term 2!!😉😉

 On Monday, it was exciting for me because it was the first day of Term 2. I couldn't wait to go to school. First I thought we were going to take our chromebooks home like usual but we didn't have homework. "No homework, no taking chromebooks home". That is what my teacher says ( well sometimes.)

There was an assembly that afternoon. I was very excited about it. It was about how we celebrate Anzac and only a few of my classmates from my school went to the Easter show. It was fabulous to be back at school.

Everyday Theaters

This morning, two ladies from Game Masters came to Ruapotaka School to talk to Room 12 and Room 11. Their names were Vera and Kaitlin. They said they were the highest player in each game but they were stuck on one game. They had to act like a Dave (Dad), Marea (Mum), T (Son), Jake (T friend) and Bryian (Marea's boyfriend). It was fun because we had to complete activities and at the end of the session, we got a badge and a card that said "Game Masters."

Mr Grundy's Wood Work

For the past 5 weeks, the year 7's have been working at Tamaki College with Mr Grundy. We were working with wood but the first 4 weeks, we had to draw pictures with a joint that is a called a "Housing Joint." We had to work with a wood that was 320 millimeters long. We had to draw 9 to 10 options that would work with a housing joint. We had to think of new drawings because if we do, we will have top marks. When we had finished drawing all 9 to 10 drawings we had to choose one picture to work on. Now this week, we are working on the picture that we have chosen. I chose an "Ezle" because I love drawing and it is simple to make. This week is going to be fun!

This is the video that Mr Grundy show the Yr 7's.  Mr Grundy's Video.

The Secret Life Of Pests

The Secret Life Of Pests

Pests are little animals, creatures and insects that are filthy, disgusting and smelly that carry diseases like rat-bite fever and weil's disease  They do damage to people's farms and houses and they commonly eat your gardens and crops. Pests are dangerous creatures.

Rat Bites
Rat bites can cause “Leptospirosis” which can lead to kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure, respiratory distress, and even death. It is spread by cattle, pigs, dogs, rats, and other animals which is really surprising.

Wasp Stings
If people get stung by a wasp, it doesn’t only sting people once but it can sting people a thousand times. A wasp is half the size of its close cousin the hornet.  There is one special thing about wasps, it can’t die. It can only die if people kill it.

Spider Bites
Spider bites are one of the most deadliest bites on earth. Some are non-poisonous and some are poisonous. The most poisonous spider in the whole world is the “11 Recluse Spider.” Spider bites can cause big lumps, itchiness and also kill people.

Horse Fly
Female Horse flies are aggressive and can bite. It is dangerous to the human health. Female House flies can transfer blood from another animal or human to their feeding habit. Male horse flies do not drink blood but they feed on pollen. Female horse flies apparently are attracted to such things as moving and shiny surfaces so they actually live in houses.

Concluding Statement
Pests are creatures or animals that are dangerous to our environment. Pests  damage things and destroy crops and houses. We do not like pests.
