Skip Off

Straight after the bell rang all the people came running outside their class and got a rope and started to line up in their class row for there skip off. The people that were in the skip off for room 10 is Fakaola, Me, Liza and Tristan. As soon as we lined up in our class rows for skipping we had to have our two feet's together and our ropes behind our feet to get ready to skip. After that Miss Riley the teacher in Room 9 said Ready Set Go then we started skipping. When I kept on skipping I felt really scared and nervous because I felt that I was going to lose but I came 4th place. The people that won third, second and was Meana came third, Fakaola came second and Limititi came first. Then lastly we had to put all our ropes away and went into class and Fakaola, Meana and Limititi had to take a photo for coming third place, second place and first place.

During our Inquiry Topic we had to get a plate, fork and a knife then we had to sit in our table groups. After that Miss Misela had to call each group to get 1 food at a time so we can taste it.

Kiwi Kids News- Make Matariki a holiday

Last week up and down the country people celebrated Matariki, the constellation rose on 25th June, beginning a month of celebration and recognition of the end of one year and the start of the next. It a chance to celebrate all that went on in the last year, to give thanks for food, family, friends and all that we have, and an opportunity to look ahead to all that next year will bring. But being so close to the Queen's birthday- for which New Zealanders get a day off- there are suggestions that there should be a public holiday to recognise such an important occasion, After all, the new year in January gets a public holiday.
