More 2011 Reflections

Anna - This year was probably the most interesting year I've had, first I'll talk about term 1. When I first arrived at tawaint I looked around the class and saw the chinchilla's Cotton and Chocolate. A few weeks later Chocolate died and Cotton stayed with me for the holidays then Miss Warren (my teacher) said I should keep Cotton because she was happy, she now lives with me.
In term 2 we got introduced to the game of dodgeball..... lets just say I did'nt enjoy it at the most :) .In class once we've all done quite a lot of work we play a game of silent ball. Eventually we had the dodgeball tournament..... and we lost :(
In term 3 Mr Rickard and Mrs Stuart annonced in the hall that 16 people in the whole school have the chance to go to Japan. Then after weeks of waiting I finally got told that I was going to Japan that was definitely my highlight of the year.
In term 4 Nucombe ball was the main game we started playing and soon there was another tournament. It was great because we won the first game but then we lost and we also did production and our country was Turkey.

Oriana - Production: This year, term 4 we had a amazing and fun production called, The Silk Road. I was a 
Turkish dancer and i was also in poly club. I had a whole lot of fun, but dressing up really fast got quite annoying. The lights in my face was really bright but I enjoyed looking at the crowd. I really can't wait until the next Tawa Intermediate production, I wonder what it's going to be called.

Dahlia -  This year I have really enjoyed production because it has made me more confident in front of people. I have also enjoyed meeting new wonderful friends that will never be forgotten. I will never forget all these funny memories and all the dramas in class. All these memories they will always be cherished in my heart. The high light of the year for me would probably have to be having the best teacher ever. She is like a angel sent down from god. On the last day of school it will be very sad and hard to let go of all these people that I love.

Christian  - This year  I got a class merit because i was being kind to people and helping people that where stuck on things. It was a great year here at room 10, Kakapo syndicate with great teachers, who are very kind to the students but when they have to they will be serious and will be ready to teach. The Spec classes are really good the teachers there are very good at teaching. I mean I sucked at art and when I went to art spec I came out alot better.

Connor This year I have enjoyed inter class sport and p.e and especially making new friends. This year we only won one inter class sport and came second to last in the class of the year. The best inter class sport was the nucomball as we beat Rm2.
The hardest thing this year was algebra but was a good learning experience. Our class are really good friends and I will miss all of them. One of the most hard things this year was production as we had to practise everyday lately during p.e and it paid off and we looked great in the production.

Miriama I have enjoyed so many things this year but my part in the production has to be the best. I was a angry teenager called Stevie Thompson and had to memorise many lines but it was worth it. We had five performances and worked really hard and I'm proud of my achievement.
Next would be the web competition. Which I did with Caleb, we worked really well together and hope to come out on top in the end. The competition is to redesign the school's website the winner gets a choclate fountain for 8 to celebrate.

Shania - hello I'm going to to do like a book review  the year so of course like any book there are its ups and downs just like this year so now I'm going to start now. Now for the good the top five moments this year:
1) when Oscar got hit in the head with the door that made every  laugh
2) when Connor said "what do English people speak?' that was also funny
3)When AJ  said"Can I hear myself when I speak?" but really my class is very smart, like when a girl  called Courtney she said this really smart thing and the whole class was speechless, that was number 4 and last is when my friend Charlotte  got hit in the head by a net ball now that was so funny.
The best thing about this yeah is metting all of my friends.

Madeline -  5 great things about this year
1.when Oscar [a boy in my class] got hit in the face by the door.
2.The chinchillas, Chocolate and Cotton.
3.When we bet Room2 in the Nucken ball tournament.
4.And then lost against Room12 
5. When I got into Drama Academy and got to be in production!

Emma  - This year I enjoyed the free response weeks which we did every term except term 4 because we were busy with production. I loved having the chinchillas they were so cute and fluffy. Some funny things that happened were when Oscar had to stand outside the door and then Daniel opened the door and Oscar got hit in the head with it! Another was when Connor asked Miss Warren "what language do English people speak?" 

Sam - This year my class was interesting, awesome and amazing because the teacher is really cool. In class most of the kids are nice and I have made new friends. I liked doing the magazine this term. I can't wait
for next year for more fun with Miss Warren and the year 7s next year.

Nixon This year I have enjoyed making new friends and playing inter class sports but the highlight of the year would be playing nucumball and at least winning one game. I am going to miss my old friends, also known as yr8's in my class.

Charlotte This year I have enjoyed P.E it was cool when we had free time and we got a netball. I also liked the pool trip it was really awesome but it was hot. I really liked it when we won against room 2 in the interclas sports for nucomball. I liked the fun run with the cool costumes. Some people did like 15 laps but I only got 10 laps.

Daniel This year has been very enjoyable. Some of my favourite things that have happened this year are: The pools trip, it was a really enjoyable treat after a long term of swimming laps. The production, even though the endless production practices got tiring the production turned out really well in the end.
I learned about alot of new things like Turkey, which we studied as part of our globalisation topic in the first half of the year. I also enjoyed learning German which we carried on from last year.
I enjoyed this year and learnt alot and I am ready for college.

Zac  - This year in room 10 has been the best school year I have been through. I have loved all the team building games we have done through out the school year .Kakapo syndicate is alright at sport but we have
not won any of the inter-class competitions.I really have liked this year and I can`twait to be a year 8 next year.

Next year I want to do more team building games.We have been on lots of fun trips with the syndicate, to the pools and to the national archives. I have done all the spec classes and my favourite one by far
was foods. I have got the best teacher in the school miss warren.

Tayla -  This year was a bunch of drama and experiences:
me and Anna going on the japan exchange, Caleb and others going on the rock band comp, Oriana, Dahlia, Feicia, Nikki going on the swiss exchange and other poly thing. In class we have a game every half hour if we deserve it, and winning a game for the inter class sports was definetly a highlight. Next year going to the college is nerve racking and down here in room10 nothing but support from Miss and class mates. Also this year our new
syndicate is pretty fun, with pe and production being the best ever for our syndicate. i've enjoyed this year in room10 making heaps of new friends.

Caleb Some of the things I have enjoyed this year are: working on the computers, Doing the competition for the tawa int website with Miriama and Daniel it was great fun even if we dont win. I also enjoyed doing basic facts as I did very well in getting my basic facts and mental comp merit, class trips (pools).
But most importantly I enjoyed meeting all then year 7s this year which I am so sad to leave. Over all I think this year was awesome!!!

Nikki - This year Tawa intermediate had an Asia themed production. It was called "The Silk Road", 2011. It started on the 29th and went on for three days. My syndicate, Kakapo had the country "Turkey". I was an Anzac. The
other students were "Girl Turkish Dancers", "Boy Turkish Dancers", and "Trojans". We were the first syndicate to preform. We started to get ready at 6:00. Everybody was very excited to be at school at night, maybe a little too excited. But the three days went by and every one was very tired on Friday, ecspacially the teachers.

Flynn - Room 10 a place where learning is fun, where learning goals are fulfilled. We play games, relax and talk. We have a sort of relaxed learning environment where learning is first priority but in a really fun way. In maths we have been doing more hands on activities. In literacy we have been discussing things as a group allowing the quiet
people to talk and share opinions, make friends and become more confident. This year our class has been great. We had a few problems across the year but throughout the year we got over them and started having fun. Team building has been a big part in our class bonding and we have done that really well. The highlight of the year was probably when Daniel smashed Oscar in the face in the door. Oscar in general making mistakes was funny and when Connor and Pledger had a confrontation made all the drama spectacular. This year has been really fun but the year 8's including me need to get prepared for college and get ready for a harder longer style of learning.

Courtney - This term our school has done a production which is called 'THE SILK ROAD'. Heaps of parents went to it. Tawa Intermediate invited some primary schools to watch the show. In the 'THE SILK ROAD'  I am an ANZAC and I run the boat. It was really fun. In P.E. we have been doing nucumball when ROOM 10 (my class) played our first round we won against room 2. It was awesome because we have not won anything. xox courtney williamson xox

Ben - This year I have enjoyed inter class sport, especially when we won nucumball and the funny thing is that we only won when Miss Warren wasn't there. I have enjoyed the spec, mostly foods because we get to eat the food afterwards.

Jayden & Oscar This year I enjoyed playing nucumball. We won our first inter inter class game. In the end we lost to Room 12. Sadly Room 12 got to the finals and they were vs room 14 and they lost to room 14.
This year we have been doing maths like all the other classes.The Moebius group have been doing complicated maths including year 10 algebra! We also have been doing reading,writing and topic. The worst topic of the year was puberty, it was disturbing.
In term 1 Miss warren was away for 3 weeks and we had Mr G.When Miss Warren came back she got us presents from Germany. With the left over money we sponsored Amado Togo, a child from Mali.
This term we did production it was sort of fun.There was 4 acts the first act was the Greeks, then Turkish girls danced then the Turkish boys danced and the final act was the Anzacs. We had to perform 3 nights and we had to perform for primary kids too.

Felicia - This year Tawa Intermediate has put on a production "The Silk Road". The theme was Asian countries. My syndicate Kakapo had Turkey. There were Turkish dancers (male and female), Trojans and Anzacs . I was a Anzac, of course the most best part to be in the production. We had the production for three nights. It was a lot of fun. And on all the three nights were really packed. I was also in Poly Club. So I had to get change into 2 costumes. It was really ANNOYING ! But I made it through so thank god!
Well that was my highlight of the year .
Thank you for reading. Hope you enjoyed it.

Sarah -  First we'll go back to the date 1st of February 2011, the day started with a little class reunion. The previous yr8s are at college, the yr7s are now yr8s and there are new yr7s. Through the months there were plenty of mishaps and events like shared lunch and talent shows and quizzes, (not to mention a river of silent ball and an ocean of nucumball!). Yr8s had vacinations for diseases and infectons. after a hop,skip and a big jump later we return to today and this maybe the greatest year ever. -s.k.

Nikisha -  This year I have enjoyed playing nucomball and I really like the team building we do. And this year you might have been hearing about the production, production was bit of a pain but we all had to do it. And now it's nearly the end of the year and we are going to have a end of year party, the whole class is doing it so I hope it will be fun. And this week we are having a talent show the last talent show that we did was at March or something and I won but I just got a white chocolate bar and it was broken but oh well at lest I got a chocolate bar.

So my highlight of the year, mmm well I know my funniest highlight is when Oscar got hit in the head haaa the whole class was laughing even Mrs Warren. I'm laughing right now hahahahaha.                                                                                         
So now its nearly the end of the year and it has been an AMAZING year and I hope to have AMAZING year next year to.
