Wiki Week 8
This week we have our Duathlon on Wednesday at Centennial Park. In pairs we complete 3-4 times around a circuit with both team members having a turn at running and biking - so it involves skill, speed, agility and of course strategy deciding when and how many times to swap over.
We have been making scooter, bike and helmet safety video clips demonstrating our knowledge from our science inquiry and bike/scooter lessons.
In Maths we have been focusing on place value - with some groups working with decimals and others in whole numbers.  
Wiki Week 7 by Mrs Brown
We have had a busy week in Room 12 with Netball skills sessions, Bike/Scooter safety lessons and the last of main formal testing for the term. Well done to our scooter skills competitors and winners.
This weeks Kiwi Can King was Deacon and Queen was Mia - both awesome students who are deserving winners selected by their peers. 
We are looking forward to the Bike/Run Duathlon next Wednesday.
Wiki Week 6 by Mrs Brown 
On Sunday it was Hadlow to Harbour fun run/walk. I ran the short course with my dog Ollie and loved seeing many students from our class completing this as well . Dakota deserves special mention for completing the 10km.
This week we had more testing and 3-way interviews (parents/caregivers / students and teachers) which provides another opportunity for us to work together to benefit our students. 
This week our new Kiwi Can King and Queen are Vili and Taylah- well done. Our Piwakawaka, Kakapo, Takahe and Mohua teams played off against each other in a game of Giants vs Wizards vs Goblins and Dwarfs.  Great to see the team work improving and that you gained 36 points to move further north on your hikoi through Aotearoa visiting different marae.

Wiki by Marissa and Javahna.

Monday we did maths and reading. Tuesday we did hand writing. Wednesday we had Miss Cournane teaching us. Thursday we had Kiwi 🥝 Can. It was fun as we played lots of games. Taylah enjoyed Wizards, Giants, and Dwarfs and Sienna liked it too. The king and queen are Taylah and Vili. We also did “I am” posters. Friday we are finishing the “I am” posters and we are doing research. That is the week we had.

Wiki Week 5 written by Teā and Levi
Levi and Taylah were awarded Duffy books in the senior Assembly -well done.
Teā and Jack B (from Room11) were the players of the day for the Quick Ripp Rugby team as picked by the team. The first games were on Wednesday with the team having one loss and one win against Gleniti and Bluestone respectively.  
Wiki Week 4 written by Asha and Javahna. We played Grenade in the hall. We also played a direction game (North/South/East/West) in the hall.
We worked on our waka -most people had finished though. We had to make paper people with our face in them and put them on our waka. We also did maths, writing and hand writing. We always do silent reading after lunch. This week was awesome. GOOD BYE .🤗
 Wiki written by Javonte for week 3.
Today this week our class did Maths and writing. The year 7s went to TTEC and made lipbalm. They put their names on wooden jewellery.
On Thursday we had Kiwi Can. We had a new King and Queen. The new King and Queen are Erin and Sion. We had buddies today.
Next week on Tuesday we will be having our triathlon.The events will be swimming biking and running - you can do it in a team or by yourself.
For me the hardest thing I did was my weekly reflection.
Wiki - Week 2 Term 1

It was great to see so many families / whanau having fun at our school picnic/BBQ on Wednesday. The class started creating fantastic Self Portraits with Miss Cournane. 
Our Assembly awards this week went to Dakota for his imaginative writing about volcanoes and Mac Junior for showing the 4R’s in everything he does.  Well done boys!
Marissa and Taylah composed this weeks Wiki as below:
This week we went to Kiwi Can.   Gemma and Shardous our leaders selected our new  King and Queen : Marissa and Javonte . Mia really enjoyed the game Flinch.
On Tuesday it was Waitangi Day. Everyone got the day off school as it was a public holiday and every one had fun!
Wiki - Week 1 Term 1
We started off the school year with a week of extreme weather - from hot and dry to cold and wet. It was great to see the class show resilience in dealing with this for example drinking lots of water, keeping in the shade and willingly join in calming Mindfulness sessions (e.g. focused breathing).
Our Year 7's came back very excited and enthusiatic after their first weekly Technology session at T.Tech.  We started our spelling, Maths, Reading programmes.  
Our class Waka is beginning to take shape and will be completed in Week 2 showing all of us 'paddling' together to reach our goals.
