Today, Room 1 had an amazing opportunity to hang out with "Soy Sauce" from Everyday Theatre. She walked us through a fun interactive production game. Due to the Covid restrictions, the theatre group did a marvellous job adapting their script and follow up tasks to provide a fun and informative session. The name of the production was "The Family Game Reloaded." We learnt about six different characters that surrounded the day to day life story of a family going through some hard times. We were able to help the family come up with ways to help their situation and we had a fun day as a class doing so.

Today I helped my mum and poppy to deliver food boxes to families who are in need of food. I made sure I wore my mask, my gloves and also kept my distance.
I feel very happy, seeing families happy when the got the food boxes, especially the children. It is a blessing to help others. Thanks to those who are involved with helping families.

Here on Team 5, we really enjoy seeing our prefects during the assembly as they present the weekly korero.
This week, our school korero is Good Manners for Good Meets. This is exceptionally important as we are all using Google Meets to remain in contact with our teachers for various reasons on a daily basis.

|Students on our first Google Meet.|
Perhaps the best thing that happened was on the first day of the student isolation period, the teachers of team 5 were online at 9am using Google Meet to catch up with their literacy classes and again at 12:30 to catch up with their maths classes.
We hope to continue this while on isolation, except during the 2 week school holiday period. However, our students will be provided with our very own Easter Isolation Learning Journey that will appear on our site at the end of the term. This is based on our successful Manaiakalani Summer Learning Journey that occurs each year during the summer holidays.
Team 5 we are so proud of you for putting forth the effort to continue your learning while at home! Keep working hard and joining in our Google Meets!

After returning from the picnic, the students of Team 5 spent the last 30 minutes of the day having some sing-a-long karaoke before being dismissed for the weekend. Some students didn't want to leave and had one last song and dance before heading out.

Mr. Burt, our principal, along with our Year 8 prefects welcomed the students, and parents before talking about our 2020 theme of Never Lose Hope. He then went on to dismiss our Year 8 students to their block, where they prepared for a few minutes to welcome the Year 7s to the intermediate block of the school.
As part of the group that arrived with the Year 7s was Whaea Mary our new te reo teacher. She blessed us with her mihi and then spent the day in our block participating in our first day of school activities while meeting some of the students.

Every student in our block has their very own Chromebook and all of our learning can be seen on our class site with our completed assignment tasks shared on our individual blogs. Each year, our school chooses one of our school values to focus our learning on. This year, our value is hope as illustrated in our lovely 2020 graphic. We will be focusing on Kia mau tonu te tūmanako or Never lose Hope.
We would love to have you follow our Year 7/8 learning journey this year as we work together to Learn, Create and Share on our class and individual blogs.
