Thank you Mr Grundy

Today for tech the year 7's created a thank you letter to Mr Grundy. The reason why we wrote this to Mr Grundy is because we appreciate his help for teaching our how to make our own pewter castings. In this thank you letter some of the year 7's worked together to write a helpful letter to Mr Grundy. Everyone took a photo for the last day of our pewter casting orientation. 

Tech Reflection

Today was our last session at pewter casting for term 2 at Tamaki College Tech. Next week we will be moving to different tech classes. Today everybody was creating there presentation boxes to take there pewter castings home. Mr Grundy's class learnt all about how to create a pewter casting. Everyone finished everything off even there workbooks. He did this to help him mark our reports and look at our project at the same time. This is a gif showing pictures of our pewter castings and photos of us at tech for the last day.

Kiwi Sport

Today was our second session of Rippa Rugby with Hamish (Rippa Rugby Coach). First we played a game called everybody's it. In this game everyone had to rippa's on their belts. Everybody ran around and tried ripping peoples rippa's off.  At the end the person with the most rippa's win. The next game we played was called tag rush. This game was similar to boar rush but the rippa rugby version. There was 1 person in the middle calling out boys, girls, barefoot, or everybody go. Instead of tagging/tackling them we ripped there tags off. The last 2 standing are our new taggers. Next we played a game called green and orange. This was similar to rats and rabbits but the rippa rugby version. For example if Hamish calls orange this means they will need to run over the white line before there partner rips there tag off. The last game we played was a game of rippa rugby. In this game there were new rules. We were allowed to pass it any direction. It was like netball rippa rugby. It was confusing for some of us because both teams were all wearing the same colored rippa tags.

Kiwi Can

Today for Kiwi Can was our fourth session of term 2. Our teachers were Mr Matt and Miss Lily. Our topic for this term is still Intergrity. Integrity means doing the right thing even though know ones looking. In Kiwi can we played 1 energizer and 1 GKQ. Our new theme for this term is called role models. Role models means looking up to someone that will influence you to become the person you want to be.The first energizer we played was a remote game. In this game there were 2 leaders sitting on the chair blind folded with a toy noodle in there hand. Miss Lily or Mr Matt would call a letter and that group of people would go up and try to get the remote without getting hit with the toy noodle. Whoever gets hit with the toy noodle needs to run back to the white board and start again. Then we learnt what a role model is. For example my mother would be a role model to me because she is a LMC midwife, so I look up to her job. Finally we played general knowledge questions.

Making Connections

Today for this reading task we made a making connections google draw. We read a book called Im a Wimp. To complete this task we then created a making connections sheet with text to text, text to world, and text to self. Everything was related to the book Im a Wimp.
