Term 1 2009

I think we have learnt and accomplished so much this first term. We have been to a week long camp, held our annual swimming sports, had lots of different specific studies, a vist to Science Alive and weekly technology lessons at Christchurch East School. The trip to Science Alive was the first event to be held. At Science Alive we were able to take part in interactive activities to help us understand Sir Isaac Newton's 3 laws of motion, which I found extremely interesting. Our next event was the Swimming Sports. This was a Year 4 to 8 event. Swimming events at St. Michaels are great because everyone is so supportive. It's amazing to see the banners waving and everyone cheering as as you enter the water, preparing to race. Throughout the term we have been taking weekly technology lessons and Year 8 was split into groups, sewing and cooking. The cooking group made a small dish every week and the sewing group's finished product was an appliqued cushion. We have also been doing some interesting studies in Social Studies thes term including; being a great leader, and the Treaty of Waitangi. Term 1 in year 8 has been so exciting and I am definitely looking forward to the rest of my year.
