The last event of the day was our final relays. All of the leaders and teachers of our House Colours ( Takitimu -Yellow, Tainui -Blue, Mataatua - Green and Te Arawa - Red) had to pick the fastest 8 people to participate in the relays. I was racing for my house colour-Te Arawa. It was a race between everyone to see who the fastest House Colour was to finished. It was a very close race between all of us. Takitimu had come first, Tainui came 2nd, Mataatua came third and Te Arawa came fourth!

Today we had finally got given a chance to try out our new netbooks. We are the first in our cluster of schools to get these, so we are very lucky. We really appreciate all the help that everyone has done for us to get these.
This is a photo of Paulitia and I taken on my new Netbook.

My heart was pumping because I hadn't been on his diggers/Diggers in ages. We started to move slowly. My cousin and I were holding on tight making sure we weren't going to fall.
We made our way to a big truck which had a dozen logs stacked up. My uncle's job was to pick the logs up and stack them on top of each other.
"Brrrr!" The Loader roared as it picked up half of the load. I felt a lot of pressure as the Loader lifted the logs. It was very bumpy and we stacked them up really high.
My uncle had finally finished and on the way back we did a few rarkies and skids. It was a very cool experience.

Today we had to do an MI test which was a test about our smarts or Multiple Intelligences and which one was our strengths and weakness. This is my results and what my strengths are and my weakness.
My goal for this term is to build up my Kinaesthetic (Body smart) and Linguistic (Word Smart).

Today we had to fill out a reflection form about our Personal Shields we had done last term. We had a time limit for finishing this and I had finished it on time. So here I am going to explain what each section means and why I chose them.
Left Top: This represents my culture which is Maori and it also has my name written. I had cut my name out with magazine letters.
Left bottom: This part of my shield represents my hobbies. I like playing with the rugby ball, I like listening to music and I like watching t.v.
Right Top:This part represents where I come from and where I live. Obviously I come from Aotearoa.
Right Bottom: This part represents what I'd like to be in the future. I would like to be a Musician because I like music or I'd like to be a Flight attendant.
My overall comment was good because it had detail and the background was really good. I also finished it one time so that was good too. I would of changed my left top and added in more detail so that there wouldn't have been any gaps. So I would give this a 9.5 out of 10.

We had to make an animation or 2 pictures of a volcano. We also had to have Five Fabulous Facts about Volcanoes because this term our focus is about Volcanoes. I chose 2 pictures.

Mrs Nua gave out our bibs and amazingly I got given GS. I was GS (goal Shoot) for our team. Usually I was given WD(wing defence) . I was so amazed and I quickly hopped into my place before the beep went off. The game had began.
April had started off with the ball and it got all the way to me. With my partner defending me I quickly got away and Leni passed the ball to me. Helen was free so I passed it to her. She scored and back to the centre the ball went. With Great defending Mauina got the ball. "Here,here!" I quickly passed it to Helen Tui,my heart was pounding and all of a sudden we got another score. "Wooo!" I said under my breath.
Everyone cheering on the side line were from our other team and school. They were supporting us like other teams should. They were supportive and encouraging for us on the courts. The ball headed back to the centre and the opposition team had the ball. They were very good and they played as a team. They pass the ball to each other and suddenly Maunia defends the ball. She passes it all the way back to our score and with my heart pounding we scored again.
The overall score was 13-10. We had won. We were so excited because this was our first win out of our 3 games so far. Every week our coach Mrs Nua gives out points to the best players. This week April got 3 pts, Mauina got 2 pts and I got 1 pt. I felt very proud of myself.
Here is a quick snippet of our Netball game.

In our Year 7 team there were only 2 teachers which were Mrs Nua and Ms Tito. Mrs Nua was dressed up as Lady Lava aka Lady Gaga. She looked really hot and fiery because she had VERY hot colours on like Red,Yellow and Orange. She also had a fiery mask on which covered her face kind of. She looked like lava coming out from volcanoes. When our teachers had finished Mrs Tele'a quickly announced who she was. My favourited costumes would have been Mrs Nua dressed as Lady Lava and Mrs Vaafusuanga dressed as Maggie Magma.

This term Mrs Nua had given us a project to do. We got put in groups of 5 and we had to take a picture of the "Korero's" we were given. Mrs Nua had given us one Korero and we had to choose 4 more. Each person in our group had to be in at least 2 photo's. The Korero's our group chose were Sop,Think & Do, Play sensible games, Bin It, Be nice to the Grass and Gardens, Play in the Right Places and Use Your W.I.T.S. These photo's were taken all around our school. The Korero Mrs Nua had given us was Use Your W.I.T.S. Take a look at our Comic Life!
