Reflection Year 8

This year at ptengland was so fun doing fun activities with my fabulous teacher Mrs Squires. My favourite activity was doing the Fia Fia with the niuean group. What I love doing is making movies with my friends.

Term 2 was all about doing movies with Mrs King. It was pretty fun doing different kind of themes for the movies. I have never been with Ms Tito’s class to do art. After 1 week of doing Movies. We also do literacy to help our writing and reading skills.

Term 3 What we did was we were doing MLK (My Kitchen Rules). We made different kind of foods such as sandwiches and many else more. Our sandwich was nice when we made it. I wish we could make some more.

On the term of the year is the most saddest year because it is my last year this year. The year 8’s and me went to camp and I had alot of fun with my friends. We went for at least 4 days and it was the best camp in my life.

Year 8 Netbook Reflection

Having a netbook helped me learn to type faster, be able to go online to finish my work and Research new things. The Things that my teacher taught me on my netbook is to check my writing twice before I publish it. It also helps myself learn new technological things.

What I’ve learnt from this year is to try and finish my work on time because I get distracted from talking too much to my friends and not finishing my work.

Year 8 Camp - Highlights

On December 3rd. I got excited because the year 8’s were going to camp to Rotorua. Mr Burt said we were going to camp at Keswick a christian camp. We were on the road for at least for 3 hours. As we arrived at camp we saw a man standing with a checklist as he told us where we will sleep for the night. We went to do our very first activity and we went to see the Agrodome and we saw no water on one side but we saw some fishers. Later on we went to do a bush walk up the mountain and it took very long. My legs started to hurt as was about to fall down. We arrived back at camp to have dinner. On the menu there were chicken casserole, rice, and other.

The very next morning, all of us went out to do crossfit immediately after we have been woken up. We ran around the camp block twice. Later on we went to see the Pohutu geysers somewhere in Rotorua. We went to see these hot mud pool. We all saw one that looked a bit weird cause it looked all lime green. Back on the bus on another trip to a act show all about sheeps and other animals.

The next day we were on a trip to go to the blue lake at rotorua. We went for another bush walk to get to the beach. It started raining and the ground got slippery. Nearly falling over as gained control again and kept walking. A few minutes later, We made it to the blue lake. As some people ran some people walked to the bus to get ready to swim. The lake was freezing cold when went ran in and splashed other faces. An hour past we all had to jump out of the water and get change. On our way to our next destination to the rotorua pools. Getting changed again to have a swim again. Jumping in the deep pool thinking that it is not deep. As I got in I fell all the way till I touched the bottom of the pool. Alexander saved me and helped me back up on the edge of the pool. Few hours later We were off again but back at camp.Tomorrow was our very last day of camp.

The last day we went to go on the Luge. We went on a gondola to get to the top of the mountain where the luge is. We have to put on a helmet to protect ourselves from falling on the ground or having other critical accidents. The instructor told us to pull the lever on the luge a little to let it roll down. Then pulling it all the way will cause it to slow down. Coming to the end of the Luge I see a chairlift going back up the mountain. Finishing off our day going back to school. Greeting our teachers because we’ve miss them for a while. That was the best camp EVER!

Forensic Scientist

Last Monday a woman with a forensic scientist appeared out of nowhere to show us what they do. We went in the street and the teachers told us to be quiet and listen. The scientist told us her name and told us what she does with science.

She tried to pick a volunteer with a shoe and she looked and looked and looked. She saw Cleveland and told him to stand up. He put his shoes in the soil and stood there for a while. She then took his shoe off and gave it back to him.

She then now told us to look at the projector to see what she does in a crime scene. She said to look for evidence of the criminal, for blood, fibre, fingerprints, and broken glass. She said to look at the photos and be choosy or else your just wasting a lot of money.
