The Film Reveal

On Wednesday it was time to reveal our film to the rest of the Manaiakalani Schools. Almost everyone at this school attended the Sylvia Park Hoyts to watch films created by other Manaiakalani schools as well as ours. Every class from Ruapotaka School made a movie. Our film was one of the first ones. The film was based on rugby values such as sportsmanship and obeying the referees judgement. I enjoyed multiple films but ours was the best.

Term 4 Tests

Today Room 12 had assessments. Everyone had to separate our desks so that we couldn't copy each other. I was a little bit nervous. Firstly we were tested on our Maths skills. We didn't have a time limit because Mrs Golder had to read the questions out. It started off easy but then as we reach around question thirty two it became harder and harder.

First Tech Of Term 4

On Wednesday, the year 8 students went to Tamaki College for their first Tech of Term 4.
Mr Grundy welcomed us to the class. He alerted us about the dangers. Step by step he taught us how to cut stained glass just in case we forgot over the holidays. When I was cutting the glass I found it really difficult. Some people were already on tinning so we had to stay away from them. Everyone was working hard and doing their work.

Spinning Disc

Room 12 did an experiment using a spinning disc. The spinning disc is a circle with two colours on each half. Our focus was to combine two colours on a wheel and spin it as fast as possible so the colour change will be easy to observe. The colours we used were blue, red and green. With each wheel a new colour emerged.

When our circles were finished we punched two holes into the centre of the circle. We inserted a string through the circle. We turned the string until we couldn't turn it any more. We pulled the string and we noticed different colours in each of the following combinations:  blue and red made purple, green and red made yellow and blue and green made turquoise.
