Everyday Theatre

On Friday morning two visitors came into our rooms and started to entertain us with a play about family problems and how to deal with them. The characters were Dave, T, Maria, Becca and Brian.

The play was about T. who had lots of drama in his life. He was 12 years old when his parents Maria and Dave began to argue  a lot and then separated. T's. best friend was Jack who always tried his best to help him out with his problem.

Rooms 11 and 12 had to make a group so that we can make our own role play and actions that showed what had happened in the story so far.

In my group were Min Zin, Henry, Mika, Jack, Azahar and Lupe. Our action was Brain moving in to Maria's place. At the end of that entertainment we were given a small blue card and a badge that said, " Game Master."

Pest Information


For the past few weeks Rooms 12 and 11 worked together and studied pests. At first we didn't know what pests were so our teacher made us record our knowledge on the K.W.L chart. This is what I thought Pests were initially 
Pests are insects or animals that can destroy crops.
After some researching about pests my knowledge has increased by a lot. This is what I know about Pests.




The Destruction Of Pests


Pests are creatures that live in filthy areas, people’s homes, schools and other places. Pests are unwanted insects that carry germs can harm or kill humans. Pests bite, destroy foods, crops and make our lives difficult.


There are many types of pests like rats, ants, flies, fleas, wasps, cockroach, mosquito and many more. The most dangerous pest for houses and schools are termites, they have a good ability to chew through wood, flooring and even the wall unseen.


Rats carry many diseases that are called plague, leptospirosis, rat bite fever and many more. When rats bite humans their bite can give you headaches, fever, cause you to vomit, rashes and kidney damage.
     
Mosquito bites are very dangerous to humans because once they have bitten your skin they will start to suck your blood. It causes people to have a fever or itchy bites.This can lead humans to get malaria which can make you vomit, be sick, nausea and then eventually you will die.

Pest aren’t very kind to the environment because they overrun houses and destroy people's properties, and damage humans food supplies and farmers crops.

Tabloids

On Wednesday afternoon the whole school came together for Tabloids activities. We were put into our team houses. The colours were blue (Kikorangi) , red (Whero), green (Kakariki) and yellow (Kowhai). 
Once we started tabloids I was already having fun. 
To score points during tabloids  a teacher observed our performance, behaviour, attitude and physical skills. If we did well then we were given a score between 0-5. 
At the end all the team leaders added their scores up. The total score that we got was 27.

Maths Test


On Friday I walked in class and saw Maths Test on the notice board today at 11:30am. I was very scared about the test because I was not ready at all. At 11:30 the year sevens lined up and went off to Mr Reid to be tested. A few moments later Mrs Golder began the test so I decided to concentrate.
