Cross Country

Today our entire school has been doing cross country. For cross country we had to do it across the road from our school at the Dunkirk reserve. The cross country challenge has been a very difficult thing because we had to do 5 laps while the other kids did 1, 2, 3 and 4 laps. When Mr Johnston clapped the the wooden blocks together we ran really fast because some other people are faster then us and we had to catch up to them but I just jogged with my other friends. It was really hard because I kept getting tired while passing every checkpoint. The first checkpoint is up a hill which made us really tired because that hill was quiet steep. I done 2 laps already and I started to get a stitch while I was jogging. The hardest thing was to keep calming of my breathing but at the same time I really wanted to come first to go to the cross country inter school but when I was crossing the finish line I cam 7th.

Art - Tech

Today at Tech we have been learning to use our drawing skills to draw things that are a apart of our culture. I have added a mix of drawing's to my drawing art work. We all got a piece of paper to draw our draft's so we know what we were doing. I was thinking really hard what I was gonna do so I looked up some images to see what I was gonna choose. I saw a friend of mine doing Naruto from the Naruto series and then I really wanted to that to. But the hard thing about drawing Naruto is the hair. The hair was really hard to draw because some parts were really spiky and you had to get it just right. We didn't have our normal art teacher so we had another reliever teacher called Mrs pokotuwi.

Kiwi can: Taking Risks

At kiwi can today we are learning about risks. We learnt what the definition of risk means and what we need to do about it. For our warm challenge we played a game walled bip bop bounce bang. For bip bop bounce bang you have to say the word bang before the person saying bip bop bounce gets to the word bounce. After that we were told to go out on to the court to get in to our Kiwi Can groups. When we were on the court we talked about what risks are. For a example taking a risk can sometimes be very dangerous such as rock climbing because rocks could just tumble on top of you while you're still climbing. When we finished talking about risky decisions we played a game called hand soccer. This game was very similar to soccer but with this game you had to use you hands to push the ball between the two cones. It was a really tricky game because everyone was always crowded between the ball also everyone just kept hitting the ball in random directions but some of our players were really skilled at this game. It was really a tough game and the other team scored a goal but then luckily we came back with two shots. 

How to stand up to bully's

Today we have created a video about bullying. In this video there is someone being bullied and someone else is helping the person who is being bullied. Bullying is a very bad for people in our school we have these tasks called CARE awards. We complete them in our spare time to get CARE badges. Bullying people are very bad for others. There is a lot of negativity in our and other schools so we need to stand up and speak out.

The Actors in this video: Tai, Harlem H and Zane
Remember: bullying doesn't stop themselves so we need to stand up and speak out.

For tech today we have been chosen into our new rotation. The rotation we are now in is Art with Mr Stag our reliever teacher. Mr Stag has been teaching us about ways we can create art. But first we needed to learn how shade in shapes using a 2B pencil. Our task was to shade in shapes from light to dark. We also got to work in a partners so I chose to work with Fatongia. The hard thing with shading is you have to make smudge the pencil together to make the other side of the shape more lighter then it work out just perfect.
