The Chair Game

                                      The Chair Game
This is a game that Room eight plays. How does this game work? How this game works is that there are two teams and one of those teams are in the middle of the court standing on the yellow line.   One person from that team is the chaser standing in one circle on the other side of the runners. The other team are the runners but there is only one runner at a time. The runners have to stand in the circle then they can run away from the chaser . While we are playing the game Miss Bracey was timing us on how fast we were.

Maths Strategy


WALT: use strategies in our maths.

Flag Football

Flag Football

On Monday the 29th of October Room 8 had Kiwi sport. We had 2 coaches and they taught the class how to throw and how to catch.

 When you throw you have to put the index finger on the white line and the rest of your fingers on the laces. In fact when you get ready to catch you form your hands into a diamond shape. Then you use the peace sign with your fingers and put it on the top and bring it into your elbow then make it touch your chest. When you throw you have to make sure there is a gap to keep the throw straight.

RAINBOWS END

WALT: use speech in our writing.
On Saturday the 6th of october I felt excited because my family,myself,my little siblings and their Rugby league team went to an amazing place could Rainbows end and I also felt worried that I couldn’t go on any rides

Firstly, My parents paid for the family so we could go on the rides! we had to choose what ride to go on. In fact we went on the huge blue Invader and I felt really excited to go on the Invader. When it was our turn to go on the Invader I heard a lot of people were screaming like “AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH” and the ride was AMAZING! ! !

Then the second ride we went on was the less extreme stratosfear now this ride was different to the extreme stratosfear. In fact the less extreme one is the one that just goes side to side. The extreme on is the one that goes around and upside down, "I hope I don't throw up". In addition the less extreme 
stratosfear was awesome. . .

Finally the last rides I went on was the log flume and the family karts both of the rides were brilliant and the log flume was took very long to finish.

In conclusion we went home and we all were tired from going on the rides it was a long day.

One of the 3 commandments  is Respect I will have respect for myself,my coach, my pears and the sport of boxing

The other commandment is Discipline I will have discipline
to turn up to every session and give my 100%

Tuakana Teina

WALT: Learn with each other and Learn from each other.


On Wednesday morning the 20th of September the
 students in Room 8 spent the day in Room 3.

Firstly, Miss Gormley was talking to us about how we should behave when we are in the classroom and out of the classroom. After a while she told us to go outside so she could budy us up. Did you know that we had to plan an earthquake proof house. Later on we had to take a video and explain what we were going to do with it then we had to make it.

Secondly, After we took a video it was morning tea and after morning tea we were still finishing off our earthquake proof houses. We also had to use stuff to make sure the house is earthquake proof so it doesn't break apart.

Lastly, The bell rang for lunch time then later after lunch miss Gormley tested our houses to see which one is more earthquake proof. Furthermore Miss Gormley sent us back to class then the bell rang for home time at 3 o’clock.

In conclusion, We went to Room 3 so we could have budy time
with them and to make earthquake proof houses.

Magic Snow



Wonderful,magic snow! In the morning of Wednesday 29th of August the students in Room 8 did a science experiment.

Firstly, Mrs Bracey was explaining to the students about the history of magic snow. In fact the product was polymer this is a science ingredient that we used for the experiment. Did you know that the part of science we used polymer for was the chemistry part, while Mrs Bracey explained it the students were listening so we could follow the instructions. Something you need to know is that the place Mrs Bracey got the magic snow packet from was New world.

Secondly, the things Mrs Bracey gave us was the magic snow packet,scissors and a transparent plastic cup. In fact the next thing we did was we poured the magic snow into the plastic cup then we poured one half of water into the cup. I was super excited.

Finally, when we poured the half cup of water into the plastic cup the magic snow rose up like a cake. In addition I was shocked because I thought it was going to fall and make a mess and it did. A little while after we poured the water in the cup stirred it then it started to feel dry and squishy after that we had fun and we made a lot of mess in the classroom it was the best experiment EVER.

Volcanoes

Firstly,where are volcanoes found? Volcanoes are mostly found on islands like New Zealand. In fact some volcanoes are often found in Japan (Mount Fuji),Italy 
(Mount Vesuvius),Hawaii (Mount Kilauea) and New Zealand (Rangitoto Island),(Mount Ruapehu) and (Mount Doom) Ngauruhoe. In fact the biggest volcano is on mars and the volcano is called olympus mons and there are also mountains underneath the sea.

Secondly,What is a volcanoes? A volcano is a cone,shield and cinder shaped mountain. Something you need to know is that when the volcano spews out lava it turns into different kind of rocks like obsidian,scoria,lightweight pumice and basalt. In fact a volcano is like a coke bottle shaking then when you open it the coke bottle explodes.

Thirdly,When do volcanoes erupt? Volcanoes only erupt when there is too much pressure on it. In fact a volcano can also erupt when the tectonic plates shift,collide or crash. Did you know that when the tectonic plates move away it can cause an earthquake.

Finally, How are we affected by volcanoes? Did you know that  when a volcano happens animales can die,humans might die,humans can get seriously burned. In fact houses can get destroyed and when the ocean gets warm it kills the fishes. Something you need to know is that when there is too much pressure on the sea it can cause a flood. Furthermore several people get injured and the ash inhaled is very unhealthy for humans and the fresh water turns into disgusting water and when the biggest rock hits the ocean it can cause a tsunami.

In conclusion, volcanoes are mountains. In fact volcanoes are all around the world volcanoes can be found mostly on islands.
