Bouncing the ball everywhere!

Eight students from Room 10 represented Ruapotaka at the interschool netball tournament last week. Mary did an outstanding job as captain of the Year 5 and 6 team, making sure that everyone worked together while enjoying the day.

Leanah shares her writing about the day:
On Wednesday the 17th August Kuini, Tristan, Fakaola, Pupuke, Shakaia, Saluselo, Bella, Katrina, Mary and I went in a Tamaki College van to inter school netball and Mr. Reid was driving. When we got there Mary and I had to practice shooting because we were the shooters. We had to play 6 games in total. Our first game was against Pt. England. We lost to them. After that game we had other games and we won 4 of them and had a tie on one of them.

Kuini's shares her ideas about the day in an acrostic poem:

New to Room 10!

We  would like to welcome five new students to Room 10 after their big move from Room 9! It is fantastic to see that they enjoy reading too. They have recently launched personal blogs and are looking forward to sharing their learning just as much as everyone else!

Training with Yayleen - by Alexandra

Yesterday my mum came to do training with Yayleen. She had to listen to instructions. Now I can take my Chromebook home from Monday to Thursday. My mum is the first parent in the school to do training with Yayleen. It was exciting taking my Chromebook home last night and it will be cool taking it home every day except Friday and in the weekend.

Room 10 enjoyed a wonderful day at Auckland Zoo on Friday thanks to the amazing sponsorship of The Warehouse. We were treated to a Zoofari around Pridelands by a zoo educator and were able to spend the rest of the day exploring other animals and their habitats. Everyone learnt a huge amount during the visit and the students are looking forward to writing about this learning adventure in Week 4.
