Room 9's Syndicate Assembly

On Monday it was Room 9's Syndicate Assembly. I think it was one of the best sundicate assemblys ever because there was a dance challenge and three people from each classroom had to go up. Quros, Mika and Samuel went up for our room. I think Mika was a really good dancer and he made everyone smile and laugh.

Mr Reid also gave out certificates to everyone who came either first, second or third. I came third for the 75m and 100m so I got two stickers on my certificate. Some people had three stickers.

Testing Season Has Ended!

Testing is over now! Finally after a long 7 agonizing weeks of testing, it's over. Super exciting! Now we only have about 3 more weeks of school and after that we will have our Christmas Holidays. We only have Culture Groups Day, St Kents Day, Prize Giving and Interschool Athletics to go through. 

It's crazy to think that I'll be a Year 8 next year. I can't wait for all the fun activities we are going to do since testing is over. I am also secretly hoping that my report will be up to a high standard.

The Focuser

On Wednesday 9th of November it was the Manaiakalani Film Festival. This was our second year making a movie. Room 12, Room 10 and Room 7 all made a movie. Our movie was called 'The Focuser'. I was so proud of everyone who contributed to the movie. I obviously think that it was the best movie ever.

The movie was related to the 2016 Rio Olympics that we studied about back in Term 3. The movie sends a message and the message is to never give up, try your best and many other messages.

Today we had another maths test. I was kind of dreading it. Maths isn't really my most favourite subject. I would prefer doing reading or writing other than maths. 

We had an algebra test - the first part was really easy because we have done it before. I got super confused when I got to the baby part. I didn't get it but I still tried my best. We had 45 minutes to finish the whole thing but it only felt like we had 5 minutes. 

It took me a while to finish everything. I finished when we had at least 5 minutes leftover. I spent the last few minutes checking my work and making sure it was correct.

Reading Comprehension Test

On Wednesday the year 7's and 8's had a Reading Comprehension test. I was very scared and stressed. I didn't know how I was going to do in the test but I just hoped for the best.

We had to go to Room 11 for the test because the years 8's were going to do their test in Room 12. The test was a little easy because I remembered some of the stories. The test lasted for at least 45 minutes. I went over my answer sheet twice just to make sure I didn't shade in the wrong answer. 

Once 45 minutes were over we went back to our classrooms. I think I did alright. Wish me luck for my other tests!
