Tapa Drawings

On Friday afternoons Room 12 group 1 and 2 did art. For art we drew tapa cloths on paper based on our learning about "The Pacific Study". We used colors and pencils to draw Tongan or Samoan patterns and many island pattern. The patterns I drew was a flower and a traditional Tongan pattern. I used a black pencil to darken the outline and used a pencil to shade the inside of the flower.

😲Skipping Is Coming Up 😮

Next week Wednesday Ruapotaka School will start skipping. There will be competitions on who skips the longest. In room 12 we all split in groups to figure out what were going to do with the ropes. My group and I decided to use long ropes and do double dutch. My groups are Teremoana, Meafou, Vika and Vaimoana. We all have things to do. Some of the other groups have tricks to display. I feel nervous and excited at the same times. Hopefully it all goes well.😳Parents can come to watch..👍

Daily Fitness Routine

Everyday, Each morning rooms 9/10/11 and 12  run around the school block for about 10 minutes. It helps us stay fit and healthy, each lap is tiring. The sounds of puffing and huffing is surrounded by me. The Jogging warms us off when it is a cold morning.
