Sorry that we have not typed much since the start of the term, and the only thing on Room 5 from this term is a "welcome back," and that was not even from the room five bloggers. This is not from Room 5 either, in case you were wondering. So Room 5 Bloggers, please type something.
Yay school is back! We know that some of you aren't cheering, but think of all the things you missed, while you were away from school. Like, (Awkward silence) well pretend that didn't happen. You obviously missed your teachers, your friends, your annoying partner that you really don't want to be with, and of course, Chewy. We can't even see why you were excited for the holidays in the first place. We hope that you see that, in some situations, School can be really enjoyable (And sometimes you wish you had pretended to be sick today).
We are doing more of our Matariki work! We want to get to our full standard, so we do it as much as we can. We have art, posters and more! :-D
Lately, all the classes have been doing Matariki projects. We have two weeks to do this, but sadly the AWESOME blogger Sam will miss the second week [◔╭╮◔] . But, onto the happy stuff. We can present it however we want to, and we can research and present it how we want. We are given a fair amount of to work on it. At the end of the time limit, we will share it to the rest of the school.
In room Five this week we have been doing our Ikan Tests as some people call them we will inform you when we finish.
Tournament of Minds is a competition where there are teams are 5-7 people. You can do more or less but you can only win things with 5-7 people. Last year Thorndon School entered a team of 7 people. This year Briar is in the consideration of making teams. At the event will undertake a spontaneous challenge. None of the teams will know what the challenge is, prior to them undertaking it. It is a short challenge, and the team will have to work together for success. They will be judged on how well they worked together as a team, their originality and various other contexts. Last weekend some of the people went to a workshop. First there were pelmanism’s that we had to solve. There were other various puzzles like making hats and describing pictures.
