Micheal Mulipola the superhero

The amazing Micheal Mulipola came to our school. He told us how he got into drawing and how old he was when he started reading comic books. He told all of the students to never give up and to never stop dreaming. Thank you Micheal Mulipola for telling us these wonderful things like never giving up!

This is a quiz

Yesterday we went to the zoo. This is a quiz on what you think the first place we went to was. When we went to the zoo it was a lot of fun seeing the animals. My favourite animal is the giraffe because the
giraffes have seven necks just like us humans! We got to fill in our zoo booklet before we went to the zoo, during we went to the zoo an after we went to the zoo. That was the best school trip ever!

How to pick the right pair of shoes

This is my explanation on how to get the right pair of shoes. Explanations were what Room 9 were

Practising our routine

These are photos of of room 9 practising our routine. The two students from room nine who
created the routine was Limiteti and I. It was a lot
of work teaching the rest of room 9 the routine
but it was mostly the boys. The first step in the routine was skip and kick three times. After practising for about two days they finally got it.
The next step was to choose if you want to do
double dutch our just normal skipping with the big ropes. When we presented our routine it felt
really cool.

In this story named The Independence games it is about
 Israel and her friends doing the Independence games. In the
games Israels favourite games are
running,cycling and swimming. Israel has been in the Independence game for three years. The problem is Israel has visual problems and a right hemiplegia (which in her case, means
that she experiences weakness on the
right side of her body). If you want
to know more about hemiplegia just
type it up on google. The reason why I like this book is because it shows not to stop dreaming!

Tangram Puzzle

In Cybersmart we all did a puzzle and it is called Tangram. It is a shape of a horse because I choose
it. The special thing about it is that it looks pretty,
colourful and I am proud of it. The shape that was
hard for me was the magenta shape at the bottom
that was used for the tail. To turn press alt and press
the arrows and another is if you want to  nudge press the arrow keys.

Report About Spiders

the link. I know that once you read this you will know lots about spiders.

How to Make a Pinata

For writing in Room 9 we learnt how to do procedural writing. When we were getting ideas from the book I was going to write about how to make a pinata. If you want to see my procedural just press on my procedural and press the link. Also there is a warning to people who want to make it. When I was writing it I really wanted to make a pinata. Have fun to the people who are making it.

Pest Investigaters

In room 9 for our inquiry we have been studying about pests. We have done art and most of us made ladybirds and the boys did spiders. I like how I created mine, I used red foam paper for my red coated wings. I like how my smart and creative teacher Mrs Riley thinks of these amazing artworks of pest even though she does not like art.


Thank you for reading my blog post.

Duffy Show

On Thursday Henry and Robert Rakete (the brown wiggle) came to our school to show us how they succeeded from what they learnt about reading at school. Robert Rakete showed us his favourite book he read when he was in primary. While he was talking it seemed like he really liked reading in school. When it came to the part of giving out the books Shaniqua went up to get her book that she ordered. After that we said goodbye to Robert Rakete and went back to class to get the books we ordered!

Cybersmart learner

      For cybersmart we did a Tip Top poster with Mrs Grant. We learned how to do keyboard shortcuts
                                                   so we are faster on our chromebooks.
