My best Day Ever - By Jarrod

On one bright sunny day just one day before my birthday it was september the 15th. I asked her “Where are we going ?” “Just wait until we get there”.We cleaned the whole house. We went on 11 o'clock so  we could be with the best players in our rugby team. It was only me ,Coop,Maddie,Rawiri and Clation.The other players couldn’t come because they didn’t work hard like us. We put in all our sweat and blood and won the game.

Rawiri got the player of the year I got the best defender I forgot what my friends got a trophy for.We went to rainbow ends I was so excited actually, I was over excited I was so pumped up. I was looking for Rawiri because but he had gone early. I only went on a few to rides. Then it started to rain we quickly went on one more.We got into the car to go home we had a little rest. Then I asked if I could go to my friend to play for a while. Thats where the day had finished. I think it was the best day ever till now

ANZAC Ceremony at TPS

Today after morning tea we celebrated A.N.Z.A.C. which stands for  Australia New Zealand Army Corp. We had to show good respect to the soldiers who took part in World War 1. Milan and Michael represented the whole schools presentation. It was a very solemn ceremony where each class and their teachers paid respect to the soldiers who died or were wounded in the war.

We did the National Anthem first then bowed our heads for the karakia. We did it on the field of Tamaki Primary School. Everyone had to participate in the ANZAC ceremony. Everyone stood because Ms Kyla was welcoming all the children to stand to do the karanga. Each class represented poems,facts,speeches and other stuff.

I felt really really sad because I want the world wars to stop because we can’t have more dead soldiers in New Zealand or Australia anymore.

How can I be a better learner?

This week students we have been reflecting on the question- ' How can I be confident smart learners and what is it that hinders me to be one?'  Students were very honest with their answers. They talked about sleeping late at night, being shy and not asking questions when getting stuck, being scared to make mistakes and so on. After identifying our weaknesses we made our personal goals and delved deeper into how we could overcome them. Check out Jarrod and Lily's blog.

Vegetable soup on a cold autumn afternoon

Today we made vegetable soup to introduce ourselves to the inquiry topic for this term - 'Fuelled for life - Food, Fitness, Feel good'  . All students got some vegetables from home and we put them together to make a soup. We learnt how to chop, dice and peel the vegetables. It was fun. We enjoyed the soup on this cold morning. It was very yum, healthy and delicious.
