All types of genders.
You can switch if your teammate gets in detention.
If 2 people land on the same one they have to play gang-gang-amore. The loser starts again and the winner moves two steps forward.

Line basketball

Line basketball

Skateboarding was canceled so Room7 decided to invite Room 8 to play line basketball.

It was quite a sunny day so I already knew I was going to get hot like a pepper. Once we were there Miss Morrison and Miss Ashley announced, “We are going to play Line basketball and do a recount. But remember humble winners gracious losers”.

As the game was starting the teachers thought and gasped “ We want it girl, boy, girl, boy” “AWW” I thought to myself. So the lines were ready, the people were ready, as Miss Shouted out “5!!!” which was amazing because I was the fourth person.

The game then ended after about 10 - 15 minutes and the score was
3 - 1 for us so we won!!!, but then we remembered HUMBLE WINNERS, GRACIOUS LOSERS, but the problem was they weren't gracious losers, because when we went to have a friendly handshake they were slapping like the HULK.

In conclusion it was a very fun game but I do wish I did stop and had a drink.

Writing on Monday VS Editing on Tuesday: WALT to self check our story using a rubric.

Writing on Monday.
The MAGIC box!!

Today we all were blindfolded and had to seek the object in the magic box.
It was then my turn, I was very excited because I felt like a pirate digging for treasure, but then my nervousness rose up and the daydream turned in a nightmare, My hand started to get eaten by an ALLIGATOR.

The blind was covering my face. I really thought I was gonna get a hard one but it ended up being a hard object with an square up top and  tube shape down the bottom. At the end there was also a circular hole with a price tag. This object also had pointy sticks on the base aiming up which also  felt like little knives stabbing me,.This object also had a convex back.

The object I turned to have was a… BRUSH. Once I figured it out I sat back down and continued with the show.

I hope we can do it again but this time with… SLIME.

Yesterday room 7 were all blindfolded in class and had to seek the object in the magic box. You had to put your hand in a box Miss Ashley made out or a coca cola box. I was like a kangaroo jumping up and down with excitement.

Excuse me room 7 this is a game called the magic box.” Miss ashley complied. “ We shall start off with Syraia-lee. During this game I will write what you are feeling on the board.” “EWW” Syraia - lee announced feeling disgusted, as we carried on with the game (Everyone started giggle since it was so disgusting. “HEHE”.

It was then my turn, I was very excited because I felt like a pirate digging for treasure, but once I stood my heart and brain was making me believe that , My hand started to get eaten by an ALLIGATOR.

The blind was covering my face as if the world turned pitch black. I really thought I was gonna get a hard one but it ended up being a hard object with an square up top and  tube shape down the bottom. At the end there was also a circular hole with a price tag. This object also had pointy sticks on the base aiming up which also  felt like little knives stabbing me, This object also had a convex back.

The object I turned to have was a BRUSH. Once I figured it out I continued with the show and sat down.

I hope we can do it again but this time with SLIME.

G.I Creek

On a beautiful day, Room 7, 4, and 2, all went for a stroll to the G.I creek. It was very fun, because we explored the creek for our inquiry topic, and also to write a recount. It was a handful since I had two buddies, there names were Lynch and Thoo Sah Wah.

As we started walking with our buddies the room 2 teacher, known as Miss Park yelled in a begging tone “CAN WE COME???” most people could not hear as if they were deaf, but Miss Ashley heard and replied in a positive way “Yes If course you can!”. While we were walking the room 7 kids were being role models and walking on the nearest side to the road, so that the younger ones could be nice and safe. During the walk I started getting hot and heating up like a teapot but I still carried on with the journey.

Once we were at the creek we decided,to split up and have half the kids with Miss Ashley and Mrs Tafea with Miss Park by her side. We then explored around the creek. During a peaceful time Coralee excitedly yelled “MRS, MRS, MRS TAFEA IT’S AN EEL!!!”, “ WHAT WHERE?” Mrs Tafea replied loudly with a concerned facial expression. As soon as everyone heard that, Lydia, Viliami, Coralee, and Grace decided to take the opportunity to make the juniors and most of the seniors, have an exciting time and try to FREE THE EEL, to show to everyone that was there. During the adventure Mrs Tafea was trying to get a photo, but every minute it would always try to hide behind, the dirt, the grass, the moss, and the creek that was the colour of a grizzly bear.

The team of Lydia, Viliami, Coralee, and Grace were such a great team, as some were collecting sticks, and 2 others were starting to move away the objects in the sea, as if this was a video game.
After a while Mrs Tafea got sick of waiting and so all the teachers decided that maybe we should go back to the school, and just relax. It was very odd though because I was so exhausted it was like the second trip home was a lot more longer than  the first, but I still carried on.Once we got back to class we had milk, which was absolutely disgusting because it tasted warmer than a microwave, but it was better than nothing.After we had drank our milk we decided to write some key points of the trip, so we can write our recount.There were a lot of ideas about today, which was helpful a lot.

Going to the creek was really fun and I am so excited to do it again. I really hope we can get a photo or video of the eel to present to the school, so we can all show what we were doing for inquiry.
