Another Day Of Hip Hop

Wow! Another day of  "Hip Hop". In the morning something surprisingly, shocking happened. 

 I noticed that it said on the board we had hip hop so I jumped up with excitement. When we were doing hip hop I felt a bit exhausted and tired because my group and I had to do alot of practice to get the movements right. 

I was really scared because my group and I had to dance in front of the rest of the class. Feeling nervous,  I still participated in doing the dance.

Buddy Reading With Room 1 💥

Today we were at buddy reading with Room 1. I was with Kain working with a year 1 who was reading to us. We  asked some questions to her and Losaline had answered it really quickly. Also Losaline could sound out the words if she didn't know them as well. My favourite part about doing buddy reading is that I like teaching the year 1 students how to read the words out loud and clear.

Syndicate Assembly

On Monday we had Syndicate Assembly, hosted by Room 10 .

We sang two songs which were Aotearoa by Stan Walker and Azonto by Fuse ODG . 

The activities that we did were heads up and hip hop. 

The first game that was played was heads up. Some of the students were competing against the teachers. The second game that was played was hip hop, and students were chosen to dance to the tutorial that we did at hip hop.

My favourite game to watch was heads up because it was so funny how the teachers were acting out what the paper was labelled.

😁 "Hip Hop" 🙌

Today we had hip hop with a dance instructor. Her name was Jess. 

We had to learn some basic moves before we moved on to the harder moves(for me that is). It was quite difficult, because there were times when I could not do the moves. I tried my best though!

The choreography, which was created by Jess had these amazing, sensational moves. I was pretty puffed out and tired at the end of the session! Would I do this again? Maybe I will,  maybe I won't!

Road Safety

For the past two weeks we have been learning about road safety. 

We have been divided into 5 groups. We've been collaborating with each other and helping one another. My group and I created a slideshow to tell people how to be safe on the road!

1. Always keep your belt on and phone off
2. Don't go over the "Speed Limits"
3. Cross using the pedestrian crossings near by!

Also make sure to always focus on the road before doing anything else!

Daily Fitness

This week Rooms 9, 10 and 12 are doing running for fitness every morning. When we started, I was really confused and annoyed at the same time. I was jogging with my buddy Vika. We had to run for 10 minutes around the senior block. Lastly when I was finished, I had to breathe through my nose and out of my mouth. What I mostly need to work on is sustaining my pace.
