Kiwi Can👍

Yesterday we had our Kiwi Can session with Mr Numia and Mrs Tuia in room 11.

As we got to room 11 we got into a circle, and talked about what we were talking about last week which was Respect, so we talked about our Topic which was Respect for a little bit and then we said our Catchphrase which was "Kiwi said Respect this place, Treat it like your own, At the end of the day, It's where we call home". Then we got into our Activity which was one of the games we made up last week and the game we played was Crickbe, there was a fielding team and kicking team. After we played our Activity we went back to room 11 and we talked more about Respect and then we got into our points and we got.... 25..yay, so after we did the points we went back to class and it was lunch time.

At that Kiwi Can session i liked it because we played an activity from our own game and we also got 25 points.

Science Intensive with Mrs Kay

This week on Wednesday Room 8 went to Room 9 for Science Intensive. In Room 9 we did all sorts of things and they were called Laser Reflection, Disco Ball and Light Refraction (lens) and my favourite one was the Disco Ball because when we on'd the torch to the necklace their was rainbow colours and that was so cool. I learnt that a rainbow comes when it is a sun shower then the rainbow comes out and that a prism breaks a simple beam of white light into several beams of light.

Fairplay and Code of Conduct

Fair Play and Code of Conduct

WALHT: Play fairly and behave on the playground.

This week we have been learning about fair play and how to behave on the playground.
What is Fair play?

Some of the things we have learned about
Fair play is are:

  • Following the Rules of the game
  • Respecting others
  • Sharing and taking turns
  • Working together as a team
  • Communicating and solving problems in a peaceful way
  • Make sure no one is left out
  • Being honest
  • Giving off your best while playing
  • Being a Good Winner and a Good Loser

I feel that this netball-er has the qualities of a fair player and she conducts herself very well on the playground.

How I Would Funraise

How I Would Funraise

It is very expensive for the Paralympics athletes to fly to the Olympics so I have thought of some ways you can fundraise.

1. First I would do a Sausage sizzle or other common food or drinks like lemonade.

2. Second I would organize entertainment like Dancing.

So that's how I would Funraise.

Which famous athlete would you meet

Which famous athlete would you meet.

There are a lot of athlete's out there that I really want to meet but I can only meet one of them and that one is Lauren Boyle. There are 2 reasons why I like her.

First I chose her because I would really like to see what's it like to you know win a gold medal or being the champion and I would ask her to give me some lessons on how to swim because I'm not a good swimmer.

Second of all I would really love to ask her lots of questions like how much medals have you won questions like that.

So that's why I want to meet Lauren Boyle.

Youngest Olympian to win a Gold Medal

The youngest person to ever win a Gold Medal is Marjorie Gestring. She won a Gold Medal in spring board diving.

If I was alive in 1963 and I was interviewing her I would ask her.

  • Who taught you how to dive.
  • How did you feel when you won the Gold Medal.
  • Why did you chose this sport.
  • Did anybody else in your family compete in the Olympics.

Because it's my first time at Rio
I'm lucky i'm one of the Prayers
I'm so lucky my name is Leo

Rating NZ Olympic uniforms

Rating NZ Olympic uniforms.

C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\2012 NZ Uniform.jpg
1. The best uniform I like the most is 2012's team because it's black and white and that is new Zealand colours and the only thing I hate about the uniforms is the polka dots on the girls dressers but other than that this was the best.

2. The second uniform I liked was 2004's uniform because I like the ferns on it and I just think it needed more white in it because there's more black then white and tbh the only white think on the uniforms is the white fern.

3. Last but not least 2008's uniform I kind of like their uniform the only thing I like about the uniform is the fern because it is black and white but they should of made the t-shirt white and  the silver fern black but who cares it's their uniform not mine.
