Skipping (Update)

Today is Tuesday so it's the last day for skipping. Room 12 have been practising skipping everyday so that we can become better than before.  We are still working on our routine, for the demonstration. There is only one day until the skipping display. After every skipping session our energy drops, because we are skipping for so long. The skip off is tomorrow and we will be performing in our groups demonstrating our routines whcih we have been practising.

We are currently studying about Matariki. Matariki is an event that is celebrated during the winter solstice. Matariki literally means two things which are 'eyes of god'(mata ariki)  and 'little eyes'(mata riki).  

When the new moon rises it's the beginning of Maori New Year. Matariki looks like a big, bright, shiny blue star in the high skies of Aotearoa. Matariki is a time when people's crops are harvested, plenty of seafood is collected and plants are grown to be tall and strong. Matariki is also a time to be with your family and friends.

In the afternoons Rooms 12 and 11 go outside for skipping sessions. We do all sorts of things, for example,  skipping forwards, backwards, side to side, practising a display and lastly a skip off.

 Everyone grabs a rope and lines up into three rows. Mr Reid stands in the  front giving us instructions while Mrs Golder is videoing us. 

In my skipping group there are Lupe, Mika, Pate, Saluselo, Dakbai and lastly me. We were not allowed to be in groups with all boys and all girls.

🏃Daily Fitness🏃

We are back at school from the long weekend. We are running for daily fitness. The seniors had to run around the  block for at least 10 minutes. Lupe, Mika, Min Zin and me decided to take it slow and jog together.

I'm excited to come back to school and study new learning.

🥛National Milk Day🥛

Today is National Milk Day. It is celebrated every year on June the first. It started in 2001.

Ruapotaka has been getting their milk from Fonterra. Rooms 11 and 12 drink their milk every week.

We drink milk every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Some schools don't have milk so we are lucky to be one of the Fonterra Milk schools.

Soccer Team⚽⚽

my_picture.pngThe day has finally come. After all the hard training and exercise, I have finally made it in the Inter-School Soccer Team. Mr Reid has chosen twelve fit, hard working students to join the 2017 Ruapotaka soccer crew.

The reason why some people were chosen was because they had pushed themselves very hard to make it into the team.

Tomorrow morning, the soccer team is going off to Point England Reserve to battle other schools and try and earn their way up to the top. I can't wait for tomorrow!!
