Having Fun with St Kents

Today we had fun playing with St Kent's. We got split into 3 teams and each of the 3 teams went and played with St Kent's. My team played relays, touch and N ball. For N ball my team wore a red bib and the other team just wore their uniform. For me when I played N ball it felt fun, happy and I enjoyed it.

The Dangerous Game

Spirit Animals read a play called A Dangerous Game. The main idea of the play was that First-aide didn't want pop, Julie, Nathan and other students to play rugby because he thought rugby was a bad sport so he just wanted them to do warm ups and fitness.

My BFF Dominic

How To Make A Cipher Wheel

For Spirit Animals we were making a cipher wheel and it said in the book that we needed scissors, stick tape, a ruler, a pen, a sheet of A4 paper and a cardboard tube at least 10 centimetres long (which is the wheel). After that it said to cut 4 long strips then grab small sticky tape then join them together. After that write a secret message and give it to a friend and they have to guess the secret message.

Measure the time

What we did for maths is that we had to solve these problems by matching the time and what months are the books were made in. We did this kind of maths because it is a level six maths. My favourite part was solving all of them because it was fun for me to do it.

Swimming in the summer

When we go Swimming we have to practice freestyle, stream line, backstroke and kicking. For swimming this year it is hard for me to do this kind of stuff because sometimes I can't breathe for a long time or sometimes I get tired quickly.

The Duffy Show

On Duffy Day all the students in each class walked to the multipurpose room and went and sat down in front. The show began and then we sang the Duffy song. After that they started to explain what they were going to do for the show and they said they were going to save the day. When it started Duffy was reading a book then he saw a super hero flying through the clouds.
Duffy and Global Girl were trying to make the flower seeds to help save the world so they started a science experiment. They made it by putting green food colouring in a bottle and mixing it with water then when the water started to come up it just looked like it was an exploding volcano. After that we sang the Duffy song then we asked some questions  about the  Duffy Show and then after that walked back to our class.
