Kayaking Day 1

At kayaking I had a fun and tiring experience. Room 7 had kayaking for activity week. We got to Orakei and then walked to the basin. When we got there year 7 went first while year 8 went for a walk around the basin. It was tiring walking around the basin. But after walking we got back and then went for the year 8 turn. We  got in our boats and started paddling. Sometimes I felt like I as  going to fall of but I only fell of twice. At the end it was a fun even though I got cuts.

Testing week

For the last five days I have been having testing. For my gloss and E Asttle maths test I did well because my gloss I got stage 8 for everything.  I think I am at with my maths.  For reading my probe was not really good and for E Asttle reading not that well but I hope it will improve.  Today for writing I hope I done well and my schonnel I only got up to 80 questions. I feel good about finishing testing but some of my results I feel not that good about it.

What I have learnt today

Today I have learnt about prime numbers in maths. Prime numbers are number that only have two factors.  Another way is a number that you can times that number and one.  Also I have learnt some facts about United Kingdom like their traditional food they have on Sunday, they have a meal that is called Sunday roast.     

Cross Country

The St Pius Cross country is an event that happens every year at St Pius.  It a race where you have to have a lot of stamina to run because it is a long distance race.  It is where everyone in St Pius attends as individuals.
All the students of Saint Pius gather inside the courts in their ages.  The 9 year old and up are the senior syndicate and they run around the block. The junior syndicate 8 year old and down run around the school.  The teachers bang the sticks and makes the score sheet.

The 10 year old and up run around the block twice and the 9 year old run around once. Teachers stand around the block to make sure the kids are running the correct way.  When they come back they go to the teacher who is writing down the places. first,second,third,fourth and fifth gets points for their houses.  The houses are Keas, Kiwi’s, Tui’s and Gecko’s.

After the seniors they come back and watch the juniors run. they run around the field flowing the teacher or someone.  They follow someone so they know where to go.  They all come back and sit in their places and wait for the teacher.
