Anzac Writing

Last week room 13 decided to write about Anzac. Anzac means Australia, New Zealand, Army, Corps. We chose to right our Anzac writing in the form of a diamante poem. Diamante means diamond in Italian. It is when you write a story in the shape of diamond. 
Below is my Diamante poem.

Tamaki College Technology

Every Wednesday the year 7's and 8's goes to technology at Tamaki college. There are 3 classes to attend Graphics, Medal and Cooking. The year 7's are in Cooking, the year 8's are in Medal and in graphics there are a mix of year 7's and 8's. I am in medal and I decided to make a turtle pendent. Yesterday I finished my turtle and my tech teacher; Mr Grandy was just adding the finishing touches to it as I left. Next week I am going to strive to make a box for my necklace and hopefully finish it so I have somewhere to put my necklace !!

Predicting what will happen on Friday!

Predicting what will happen on Friday! 

This Friday is the last day of term one and the student leaders have planned a fun day for us so we can enjoy our last day. There is going to be a principals assembly and my classroom (Room 13) will have shared lunch. I think that we will have a water fight depending on the weather. I hope that there will be food for sale and that we get to wear mufti. I cant wait for the last day of term one!!!

My Weekend

My Weekend

In the weekend my family and I went to Krispy Kremes for the first time. Krispy Kremes is
an american doughnut company where they sell the most delicious  doughnuts and the best
milkshakes i've ever tasted. We decided to go through the express isle because we didn't want
to wait long and going through the express isle let us get our doughnuts faster. After we got our
doughnuts we went to the beach to eat our doughnuts. My favourite doughnut was the powdered
jam doughnut and  the oreo glaze doughnut. Finally we finished the doughnuts and we decided
to go for a walk on the beach. We ended up walking for 2 hours because my brother wanted to
see the goats that apparently lived up on the hill. Turns out there were no goats on the hill and
we walked all that way for nothing. It was all worth it though because we probably ended up
burning off all those doughnuts during our walk in the heat. Krispy Kremes is located in Manukau
if you want to go. Their doughnuts are pretty good.

What I Learnt Today!!!

Today I learned something amazing about the $5 dollar note. I learnt that the value of the $5 dollar note in 1914 equals $123.26 in 2018.  I also learnt something new about the $2 coin. I learnt that the bird on the $2 coin is actually a Kotuku bird. It is an royal bird found in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and southern Europe.  Below is an picture of the Kotuku bird.

All about me 2018!!!

All about me 2018!!!

Talofa lava, My name is Nadia and I am currently a year 8 student at Glen Taylor School. I am in room 13 with Whaea Pene and Mrs Faalili as teachers. 

My goal this year is to win something at prize giving. To achieve this goal I will work my hardest in all subjects and try my best to participate in all activities. 

Something I will find challenging this year is meeting new people. I will try my best to interact with others and while in a group activity I will share my ideas as well as listening to others ideas too.

I am excited for graduation this year. I am also excited to  meet new people and learn more and more everyday!
