Silent Reading has begun

Silent Reading

We have started to use our class library shelf which we have been building all term. We have lots of different authors including our favourites:
- Roald Dahl
- Louis Sachar
- JK Rowling
- David Walliams
- Paul Jennings

Check out these posts by Room 7 who were excited for this!

Rm 7 have stared reading from our class Library shelf.  I chose the book Billy Slater book because I love Rugby League!  I choose theses photos of rugby league for my bookmark, because I watch heaps of NRL and play rugby league too.    

Walt:  We are learning to design a bookmark

Task description: First we were all on the mat then he showed us what we are doing then we went of and started looking for some images and did it.

I also picked this book because I really liked gangsta granny by david walliams and so I thought it will be cool to pick the same author as gangsta granny.

Warriors Curtain Raiser

By Levonah

When we arrived into the stadium I was feeling really nervous. As we were walking down the stairs, I saw the big field that we were going to play on. My heart was beating so fast, my legs were shaking and I was just so scared.

We finally made it to our seats after a long walk, and we had a great view of the women’s warriors team playing. Our girls team were so happy when we saw the women’s warriors because we saw women that we knew. I saw this one girl and I couldn’t believe my eyes she was a lady who used to play for my rugby club in the women's Marist rugby team. It was the end of the game and the ladies won 32 - 4.

Then we had to start getting ready, the under 13s had just finished playing their game and we started our warm up. We had to copy Roger and Johnny Tuivasa sheck. After that it was game time, the hooters went and the ref blew her whistle. The opposition kicked the ball towards us and it rolled towards me. I was supposed to give the ball and follow the plan but I heard my teacher say run Levonah run.

So I grabbed the ball and ran as fast as I could. First I ran into this little girl and bumped her off as hard as I could, then I stepped another girl and ran so fast like flash. I was so close to the try line and another girl tried to tackle me but I just kept pumping my legs like my coach taught me and I got the ball down onto the tryline. I was so happy because I’ve never ever played on the Mt smart stadium field before and It was a once in a lifetime opportunity so I had to get the try.

The game was nearly over and I really wanted my sister to get a try, so I helped her out and I told her to do our plan liked we practiced. The plan was that she would dummy it to the side that everyone was on and she would run it to the tryline. It was time that she was about to do it. Then she did it and she sprinted to the tryline and got the try. I was so proud because both of us each got a try. Then the hooter blew and it was time.

We were all so happy that we won, but we had to remember to stay humble. We did our cheers, shook hands with the other team and had a photo with them. We went back to our seats and we were talking about our amazing win. We ended up winning 24 - 0.

Finally after all of that it was time for the warriors game. We were all so excited, but in the first five minutes a player from the knights got a try for his team. We were a bit angry but we just kept cheering and cheering for the warriors. “ Let’s go the warriors let’s go” we all said. “Yassss” we screamed Blake green scored the first try. When Blake scored the first try we were hungry so we went for a little break to get something to eat.

As we were ordering the food Shaun Johnson made the kick for his team. We all were eating and David Fusitu’a scored the next try right in front of us. We shouted “ David David” and he waved at us. The cook island drums were playing, so we went in front of it and started dancing. Mr Moran got out his phone and started recording us. Shaun also got his next kick.

The game was nearly finished and Adam Blair got the last try in between the gold post. We all went crazy, we even got a wave from Kalyn Ponga. The final score was 22 - 7.

Overall I thought playing on the Mt smart field was amazing and super fun. Also watching the Women’s Warriors was really inspiring. I had so much fun that night and our team won, the Women’s Warriors won and the Warriors won.

If you guys remembered I am an ambassador. We have been doing a great job, presenting to visitor that have been coming to our school. You should know that being an ambassador isn't easy.  Sometimes we have to be at school around that 8.30 mark ready to get in our uniform. After we get into our uniform we go to the Tusitala and have a little practice before all the visitors arrive. Sometime we even go to different university. The only university that we have been to this year is M.I.T (Manukau Institute of Technology). Each time we present to our visitors Mr 
Somerville  looks at how well we present or remember our lines and by the next 
day he chooses a player of the day. When we present to our visitors we present to many people from different country's. We've had visitors from the United States and even from Canada. 

Here are some photos of the ambassadors presenting to some of our visitors!!

Winter Learning Journey

The April School holidays have come to an end and it's back to school for us, but for many of our learners in Room 7, the learning never stopped!

Our learners signed up for and engaged with the Woolf Fisher Winter Learning Journey. This is an amazing resource created and run by Rachel Williams and her team, and we are so grateful for the amount of time and effort she puts into it so that our kids have something awesome to work on and blog about in the holidays.

We had 3 AMAZING efforts in Room 7, and these three are owed a huge congratulations on the hard work they put in. Well done girls, you are AWESOME!
