Huia 1, 2014: Our First Thursday of the Year

Welcome back to the first blog for Huia,  2014.

Huia 1 is now Miss Murphy's classroom, but Mrs Vincent looks after us every Thursday afternoon while we work on our own writing skills writing our own blogs. We are working on developing and improving our writing skills, and part of this includes group writing a blog for Huia 1 each week. Well, that's the plan.

This year,  there have been quite a few changes at The Gardens School and in the Intermediates.

Last year's Year 6s are now Year 7s and last year's Year 7s are now Year 8s.  It feels good being a Year 8  because it's my last year and next year I move on to high school and it's one step closer to being an adult. (Adam)

I like doing Phat Friday* because there are subjects we haven't done before, such as Spanish, orchestra, guitar, jump jam, photography, physiology, building barbecue tables, cooking, kapa haka, Samoan,  planning for special events, and ukulele lessons. (Olivia)

I am finding the work harder and longer, especially the writing and handwriting. (Flynn) 

I am liking school a lot this year because the work is challenging, especially the maths because I am working faster. (Matthew)

I am enjoying all the new people in Year 7 because they are all so nice to me. (Sean)

We have Mr Fowler, Mrs Murray and Mrs Vincent in our class on Thursdays, and we are enjoying this because we have a variety  of teachers' opinions and personalities. (Flynn)

I have learnt how how to take apart a  weed-eater mower with Mr Fowler. I know you have to take the carburetor out first. (Nathan)

The field has changed because some of the old relocatable classrooms have been replaced by new ones, and there are  also new toilets with the new classrooms. But there's not as much space to play on the fields now; however, there is more space behind the classrooms than you would think. (Corey)

The Year 7s have more sports than they had last year. (Flynn)

I like learning science and Spanish because  it's a new opportunity. ( Olivia)

So far this year, I have met new people in my class,  and I really enjoy Huia 1 because of all the people and teachers in my class and how colourful and inviting it is. (Hannah)

I learnt we have to be careful how hard NOT to kick a soccer ball when there are people around - but it wasn't me that kicked it. (Adam)

On Thursday afternoons with Mrs Vincent,  we write a personal blog each, and we write a shared class blog. This is our first Thursday.

*phat means fantastic
