Term 4 Is Here!!

Coming back to school? I wasn’t sure I wanted to. I had a great holiday, but it was unfortunetly only for two weeks.

When the bell rang the class walked into the school hall (That is now officially extended!!) wondering what interesting topic we would be studying this term (Our Last term for the year)?????? Everyone was a bit blank and confused, looking around seeing teachers dressed up up as insects and bugs. Moments later we were introduced to the topic with a mosquito like Mr.Burt, the new topic was called “Little Critters.

All of the teachers put on some great acts talking to us about some facts that we would know soon enough. We all had a laugh and enjoyed it knowing this was going to be a great topic to study for this term!!!

Commonwealth Games Off To A Blazing Start!!

What a fiery start to the Commonwealth games with New Zealand winning a truck load of 17 Silver Medals along with 2 Gold Medals and 6 bronze medals.

The sport that I have really enjoyed watching so far is weightlifting. Just recently the island of Samoa have managed to win 3 gold medals all from Weightlifting which have all been won this weekend. Another amazing thing about this is that the people that won were all family. The surname is Opeloge with brother and sister Ele and Niusila managed to win by a long shot.

Watching these athletes compete in the games is amazing, seeing the best athletes in the world competing is something you do not want to miss!!
