Rm 22 League Session



Yesterday, the Senior school (years 5 to 8) had went out to our school court to learn some league skills with Siua from the 2011 Junior Warriors squad.

We put our change of close on and headed to our courts, But first we had to walk around the school because some of us just don’t listen. Then Siua introduced his self and we started straight away.

Firstly we got put into teams of 4 . Our first drill was stepping in and out in zig/zags. This skill improves
on stepping people and maybe your dog if he trys to bite you. The other drill was stepping each other in a line and then race down and score a try. Heaps of people were putting the ball before the line. This drill for
my team was hard because we had big people and the space was hard to step into but it was very fun.

to finish off this wonderful session ,we played this aw some game called the kicking game! This was my favourite activity. The rules for this game was to kick the ball into the air and then the person on the other side has to catch it on the full, if you dint catch then you are out or if the ball bounces near to and you are the closest you are also out. The height you had to kick was over your shoulder. Oh I almost forgot ,” keep your eyes on the ball”! My friend got hit in the face two times. I was very good at this game because we play this game in my team. We played this game three times and unfortunately my team loss ed , but it was a good battle.

Thanks to Sio Siau Taukeiaho for coming and spending time with us and I hope you come back so we can learn more skills from you and play that game again.Thank you again.

An Awesome Time

Th Science Road Show


Last Thursday the year 7/8 went down to Tamiki College for the science road show to learn more about our topic , bigger,better,faster,stronger. To see these amazing exhibits we had pay $ 7.00

As we arrived at the school auditorium the other classes had just started their session. Once we were instructed on the rules we raced off to see the gadgets .There was a variety of inventions so I picked the topic sound. My group decided to choose big ear. It is this sat elite dish that you talk through and then listen from the other end on a telephone.

My favourite device was the there-min. It was a sound pitcher. It is use by waving your hand up and down to make a rhythm or sound. It was fun cause we made our own beat and sounds our self's.

Thanks to the people that allowed us to spend some time over there and that They will come back.

Our Swimming Session..

The last two weeks we have our swimming session. Every Friday lunch time we get ready and walked down to swim magic(swimming pool).

Room 22 students swam in two lanes.What we need to practice is to keep our legs straight while kicking and the movement of our arms so we can swim the full length of the pool. We also had to see how much lengths we could swim and i swam 850.

I think our swimming session was very fun and it was good because if we did not practice we could drown

Our Sign


My class room 22 , is trying to find away of curing our school from littering. We came up with an idea to create a sign that stands out and that little kids right up to us can understand very clearly. These steps will help us to succeed and achieve our goal.

Identify a need..
The first step is to identify a need and our need was to stop the rubbish in our school from touching the school grounds.

Research...
Next step is to research an image online to get an idea of why it is important not to litter.

Generating ideas...This next step is very important in life. Generating ideas. This is to think or create many ideas so that there will be more of a chance of succeeding , because if you had one main idea and it got busted or lost, you will have many other ideas that may work.

I think this idea could work very well and that it could cure our school the litter bug...
