Interschool Rippa Rugby

Today was the interschool for Rippa Rugby. We had 4 games which was 20 minutes long each, we played against Point England, Glen Innes, Tamaki Primary and Glenbrae. We lost all our games, but we gradually got better after each game since we learned to play as a team, and to spread out on the field. It was a fun and exhausting day, but we cheered each other on and tried our best.

Stratosphere - Day 1, Activity 2

For day 1, activity 2 I was focusing on height restrictions. To ride the Stratosphere in Rainbows End, you must be 130cm+. Height restrictions makes everyone safe, and secure. By doing this they make sure that everyone is following the height restrictions since it makes sure that the people fit in their seats. 

Rainbows End - Day 1, Activity 1

For day 1, activity 1, I was having fun exploring Rainbows End. In this activity, I had to find where Rainbows End is located on Google Maps, and how much it would cost for my family to go Rainbows End. For the Superpass Adults, it would cost $310 because 5 x 62 = 310. For the Superpass Children, it would cost $104 because 2 x 52 = 104. In total, it would cost $414 for my family to go to Rainbows End.

Kahoot Quiz

Yesterday, LS2 students made a Kahoot quiz based on our knowledge about Elections. LS2 completed my quiz, and a lot of people managed to get more than 4/7. I worked with Shakaia, Sa Kae, Hajera to complete this quiz, it was fun coming up with new questions and collaborating about our learning. 

Facing Challenges - Kiwi Can

Our topic for Kiwi Can for the last couple of weeks is Facing Challenges. Today we played Hand Soccer which was challenging for some people while for others it was easy. This activity was a great way of learning how to work as team by cheering others on and how to pass to each other. 

Character Introduction - Film Study

Last week, LS2 completed a film study about The Princess Bride. For one activity, we looked at character introductions. We had to pay attention and see if the character/s were wearing dark or light colours, if the music changed once the character/s was introduced, and the shot type they were introduced in so we could identify if they were the antagonist (villain) or the protagonist (hero).

PBS Fun Run 2017

Last week on Friday, Panmure Bridge School went down to Dunkirk because we had our Fun Run. The Fun Run is created so that students raise money for our school for things like sports equipment. This year, the year 7 and 8's completed 5 laps. While running, we had to pace ourselves and breathe so that we didn't stop. The hardest part of the course were the mountains, but it also gave momentum as I was going down.
