Maths.

In the beginning of the year I didn’t know any of my basic maths.

But now I know all of them. I learnt how to do them on a website called xtramaths. I have 6 accounts on that website and I really love working on xtramaths.

I love working on my multiplications. Another site is Maths Whizz I just finished working on Ratio that’s really hard and I think I have another lesson on it i’m hoping to do well and if I don’t get the results I was hoping for unless I can say I tried.


kbye for now.

My Mosaic



I’m making a tile. This is the design that I have chosen to do.


I’m in the process of making a tile that represents me. The year 8’s at Pt England School are working on a piece of mosaic, that we can leave behind as memory of us when we were at Pt England School. So when we are older we can look back and be proud of the work that we have done.


I chose to do this design is because I’m maori and I really like being involved with the maori culture and I also like listening to reggae music. I think that my design looks alright but I don’t think I can change it because I’m scared that if I change it I might mess it up. But I’m happy with this design.


I think my design is going to turn out really cool and original. But yeah will see how it turns out. At the moment I’ve just finished my drawing I haven't started on my tile but i’m really looking forward to working on this piece of artwork during the rest of the week.


I’m really excited to see how it turns out.

Rugby :)

I played rugby for the school last term. I loved playing rugby with the girls.

The reason I like to play rugby is because I like playing physical sports. My first rugby experience was when I played in the 7’s team, we played at Avondale racecourse, it was a very big stadium. We challenged a school called Kowhai first, we had lost to them, and that made us want to work towards winning the next game.


The position I played in rugby was blind side flanker. Our last game was last term and we played against a school called Koru intermediate. The game was very hard and we just lost to them.The highlight of that day was when, I ran through a lot of girls, I had made heaps of yards then it came to the end I had to go through one more girl to score the try...BUT she tackled me. I think we would of got that try if I had someone to pass the ball to, but its okay because it was a good game and I loved that we got to finish off the season strong.                                        

So as I was going to get changed I said to the girls I really don’t want rugby season to end aye? and they were like “yeah”. So i’m really looking forward to playing rugby in Austrailia. I hope pt england inspires more girls to play rugby just like they inspired me. 

When I signed up for rugby, I didn't have a clue how to play! Now I know how to play, I really like playing rugby.

Athletics.


Every student at Pt England has a house colour. Britney's house colour is Tainui(blue). These groups are joined together on days, such as Cross Country and Athletics. Last week Thursday was their Athletics day and Britney was in Tainui. 


“Left and Right” , “Pick a side” said the lady in the blue. Britney picked the right side to jump from because she was right handed. Most of the people in the group had picked to jump from the right side. Not much people wanted to jump from the left side.  Britney found out that it was best for her to jump from the right side , because the people that were right handed and that jumped from the left side didn’t really do well. Britney said “ I don’t think I made it but unless I tried my best.” So we went off to do her next event, Sprinting.


“FINALLY” said Britney. It was time to race against some of the fastest girls in her age group. Britney loved to run short distance. As the first race ended Britney came back to the starting line with a smile on her face, “ I came 2nd she said to one of the girls. She said one of the hardest things in the first race was trying to catch up to Pesi, But Pesi came first. “It was really tiring but challenging at the same time. Britney said that she really liked racing with Pesi and her friends. SO now it was time to race for the finals see who wins first place. Before the finals Britney’s legs were cramped up from the other races, and her mouth was really DRY like REALLY, so before the race started, Britney went and asked one of the teachers for a drink, sadly they said NO because the race was going to start. She went and got back into line ready to race. She raced and she came in 4th place. After the race had finished she went to have a long cold drink. Then off they went to Discus and other events.


As the day was ending  Britney felt pretty good about herself. After that she went back to her class and waited for the bell to go, so she could go home.
