Awesome Films!

Last week on Wednesday Ruapotaka School went to Sylvia Park to see the Manaiakalani Films that other schools made. I had a awesome time taking photos of the Ruapotaka display. The Ruapotaka display looked amazing because of the pictures that were on it and the lights around the display. Also the films that Ruapotaka watched was great especially when my class's film was up on the big screen.

I enjoyed watching all of the movies but my favourite film was probably Tamaki College students trying Pasifika foods.  I have many Ruapotaka films that are my favourite but,  my favourite film from Ruapotaka school was all of them because they all had a meaning that showed in the film.


I had an amazing time going to Sylvia Park to watch the different films from different schools. It was a great time going to see the Manaiakalani Films!

Doing Fun Art!

 Last week on Friday for art we did tin foil stain glass. To make tin foil stain glass we had cardboard that was quite long and short. Then we had to use a pencil to draw what we wanted on the cardboard. After that Mrs Riley used a glue gun to glue what we drew on the cardboard. Then Mrs Riley put tin foil around our cardboard and we had to tap the back of the tin foil cardboard so that it doesn't come off. The fun part was when we could dye it and colour it and be creative. It was fun dying the tin foil stain glass but the tin foil rips a little.  I had a fun time doing art!

The Amazing Michel Mulipola





This week on Tuesday a special guest came to Ruapotaka school. His name was Michel Mulipola. He is a wrestler, a illustrator and a professional game player. The surprising thing about Michel Mulipola is that he published his first book when he was only six years old. My favourite thing about Michel Mulipola was that he illustrated one of the books my reading group read. The book my reading group read that Michel Mulipola illustrated was the book in the middle. It was amazing.






Michel Mulipola is a great artist but I learnt that when he draws something he doesn't like it when he draws. He said that while he's drawing he sees there are mistakes and when draws again hes going to be better than he did before. It was a great time meeting Michel Mulipola!

Great Trip To The Zoo


Last week on Friday my classroom went to the zoo to look at prey and predator animals. At the zoo we went over to where the the flamingos were, and I saw that they were standing on one leg. Well I learnt that flamingos stand on one leg while they are sleeping. Also I learnt about when a giraffe eats something hot it's tongue turns purple and a blue colour. My favourite animal I saw at the zoo was a red panda because they look so fluffy I would pat it. I had a great time going to the zoo!

Risks, Insurance and Other fun Things!


On week three on Thursday room 9 and room 10 had Financial Literacy. At first I didn't know what Financial Literacy was but now I know.  There were three girls called Mona, Jordan and Michelle who did Financial Literacy. At Financial Literacy I learnt about saving money, trustworthiness, identity, risks, insurance and other fun things.

My favourite thing that we did at Financial Literacy was the skits, because it was really fun when some people got to present their skit. Also I liked it when we learnt about saving money and I learnt about insurance.


 I had a fun time at Financial Literacy and I had a great time meeting Mona, Jordan and Michelle.

Orienteering

On Tuesday room 9 had orienteering
with Leon. It was exciting because I didn't know what orienteering was before. Last week on Tuesday room 9 went outside and had a paper that had letters on it. The awful thing was when, I was looking for the letter j and I was right next to it but I decided to walk until I found it. Suddenly I found the letter j but I passed it so I had to run all the way again until I got to the letter j. Orienteering was so much fun and I can't wait to do it again!

Awesome Tangrams



In room 9 we created tangrams that looks like a puzzle. There were seven different shapes and we had to try and put those seven shapes into different objects like a house, a horse, a plane and other objects as well. It was hard at first but then I got some help from Kate. There were lots of keyboard tips for the tangrams and two of them were free rotate and flip horizontally. It was fun doing the tangrams!

My Amazing Pest Poster

For inquiry we were learning about pests. Pests can be anything if it is in the wrong place, at the wrong time doing the wrong thing. My pest poster was about ladybirds because they eat lots of aphids,
plants and leaves in the garden.

Kia Ora my name is Limiteti and I am a student at Ruapotaka School. My culture is Tongan and in my family I have two sisters, two brothers and my parents. My favourite thing to eat is donuts,fish fingers and peanut butter sandwiches. In school I’m good at reading. I enjoy art, singing and dancing.  The things I find hard is solving maths problems in different ways and writing more sentences in a paragraph. My goals for this year is to put juicy words into my writing. This year I’m looking forward to our skipping routine and the skip off to see who is going to win.
