The Swim Zone!

Since week 3 we have been swimming in our pool. This week we have been getting some instructors come to our school to teach the year 0's to 6's skills about swimming. So far we have learnt backstroke, freestyle, stream lining and how to hover on our back then turn to our front, it was really fun to learn different techniques.

My favourite style of swimming right now is probably stream lining because it is quite easy to attempt on your first try. My least favourite is backstroke because when you do it you feel the water escape into you nose.

Chemistry In The Kitchen!

In room 10 we are learning about Kitchen Chemistry. So yesterday we did an experiment, it was about the liquid, gas and solid our ingredients were only a tin, water and a pressure cooker. We saw if  the heat would take the pressure from the water. It was frightening for some of us but some weren't scared I have got to admit it was pretty COOL!  We realised with the lid on top it would trap the air so when there was a lot of air the lid exploded because it couldn't take the heat.

My Favourite Film Of 2017!

Our School - Tamaki Primary School - By TPS Student Leaders 2017

My comment is a quality comment because it is nice, positive and it is very specific to show that I really liked it. Also it is very encouraging and can make someone smile even myself.

The Film Festival Day!

Last week on Wednesday the 8th our whole school here at Ruapotaka went to the film festival, we were in Room 2 with St Pius X.  I was confused when we saw Point England and Tamaki College speaking but it was fine and the movie was quite cool. Out of our school I think room 5, 1 and 4's were one of the best.  Most of our class were laughing when our film came up on the screen.

Film Festival Word Bank!

Since last week Tuesday, Mrs Grant told our class that we had to work on a word bank she set up some slide decks and made some slides that was of her reading about some things in the movie Inside Out. She chose that movie because it has a lot of emotions and has powerful words in there. In the movie this girl called Riley has 5 emotions in her brain controlling her they are, Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear. The bad part is when Sadness touches one of the core memories it turns blue and sad and then Joy and Sadness get Sucked away and so Anger, Fear and Disgust have to take over Riley's brain while Joy and Sadness try to get back.
