Year 8 Day at Tamaki College

Today the year 8s went to Tamaki college to see what a day in Year 9 looked like. The first activity was maths. It was a lot of fun. We played battle ships against Mr Jones, our teacher for maths. Luckily we won the battle ship game. The next thing we did was science. Our teacher's name was Mr Stoddard. We learnt about static electricity and physics. We did experiments to help us understand. First we made water bend by rubbing a plastic tube on a piece of material and running the taps slightly. When we put the rubber tube next to the water it looked like it was bending. After our yummy lunch we had English. Our teacher this time was Mr Stevenson. We were finding visual images connections with new vocabulary. Last but not least was PE. For PE our teacher was Mr Moyes. We played turbo touch. We had 3 teams, there was non-bands team, a red team and a yellow team. I was in the non-band team but I never found out the final score or which team had the most tries. I think it was the red team but it does not matter because we all had so much fun. A big thanks to Tamaki College for showing us their awesome school and a big thanks to the teachers that taught us in the time we were there. I am looking forward to being a Year 9 student there next year!
