It's Almost Here...!

It's Almost Here...! Can you believe it?!? It's the 15 of November! That can only mean one thing, and only one... It's a Month and a quarter before Christmas! We've still got 4-5 weeks or so left of school, but who cares!?! This is a time where everyone is so excited because Christmas is sooo close. Students don't even want to work anymore. They just want to play an education game to try and be first on the leaderboards. That's what they're doing! The last term of school is almost done but we've still got things planned for the rest like Pet Day on the 30th of November, and lots of other fun activities and things to do!

E-asttle Recount

On Friday, Rimu had to do an E-asttle Writing test about what we have done well. That means that whatever we think we've done good at, we have to write about it. I wrote about when I learned how to Ski at Mt Hut Ski Resort. Here is my excellent piece of writing. :)

It Was a Lot of Fun both writing this and remembering what it felt like to ski for my very first time! I wish that I could go again with my Mom and Dad to teach them how to ski as well! It is a moment I will never ever forget for the rest of my entire life!

Inquiry-Waste Not Want Not.

For the past term in Rimu, we have been learning about Waste Not Want Not. This Inquiry topic is about rubbish and pollutions around the world and everything else to do with rubbish. We had to make a workbook for all of our facts and information. When we get to the point when we have to make a poster, it has to look something like this...(disclaimer, it looks like this because that is my topic.) Here is my poster.---> The picture on the side is too small so here is the picture in its full size.--->That is it! The real Rainbow Warrior In its full size! If you can still remember the "Digi Awards 2018!?" post, this is the real boat that I went to see! The whole story from this fabulous adventure is,  the "My Not So Boring Holidays" post to find out more! Anyway, It was a little feature in my poster and it has a Facts Section about the boat. once we've finished with the poster, we make our own inquiry project. I can't wait to finish this poster!

YMS Pet Show!

Every year at YMS, we hare a pet show in the middle of Term 4! All of the students from the classes will bring either a stuffed animal or their family's pet! As for me, I have a Cat and a Guinea Pig! The Cat is physically scared of everything so I don't bring her. The animals that are there usually are Cats, Horses/Ponies, Sheep, Goats, Guinea Pigs, and Dogs! We'll be delighted to see all of the wonderful animals! We'll be looking forward to seeing all of your pets!

Athletics Day!

Next week on Friday, it's Athletics Day! Fun Fact, the yr6 Girls standard is 1m, & Boys is 1.10m! In Athletics Day is a day when we have to do long, high jump, shot put, discus, and sprints. Every 1st and 4th term, every school has to do all of those things and only the best may win and move on Zones. Zones is where you compete with other children from other schools compete against each other to win! I myself have never made it to Zones so I wouldn't know what it is like. Probably exhausting. Anyway

Good Luck Competitors!
You'll Need It!

My Not So Boring Holidays

1st Week back to school! So that means I have to post more...well, Posts. In my holidays I went to do something that other people wouldn't be able to do. I went with my parents to tour the Greenpeace Rainbow  Warrior! FYI, we only did this because she supports Greenpeace. We got to know why the other RW got blown up. Apparently, a French spy was on board so they could hear their plans against France. so they put 2 bombs in the ships hull. That's what happened. Anyway, we saw the control room, the deck, & break room. On the deck, there was a speedboat & a helipad. Before the tour, we got a print on some shirts. On the print, it said "MAKING OIL HISTORY" Because Jacinda Ardern said no more to new oil drilling exhibitions. Overall, it was exciting. If you remember the digi awards post, that was the boat. Please give me some feedback on this post.
