This Friday will be the last day of school. Our school will have a Fun Day. What I predict will happen on Friday Fun Day is ... I think we will play games in groups. I think there will be water games and water slides included. Glen Taylor School has had a Fun Day before, It was combined with our athletics day last year. We also had a fund day 2 years ago and it was all about having FUN.  We will also be in our House Colors.

Duffy Assembly

Today at 9:30 am we had a school assembly. But no, it wasn't an ordinary assembly, It was a Duffy assembly. We had a guest speaker come and speak to our school , about how we need a can do attitude through out life. (Simplified can do. For example can do attitude is like believing you can do anything, And ignoring the word "Can't") Each class got a box of Duffy Book's. Each student received two books  which they chose earlier in the term. Here are the two books I received.

The Toi Toi Book

I am in the reading group Korowai.  My group goes to Mrs Wrack every Monday & Friday. We received a book named Toi Toi. Toi Toi is a journal for young writers and artists. This book is written by students our age. It is filled with language we use. One of the stories I enjoyed was Roasting Marshmallow's because as I read all the describing words I viewed the setting in my head. I also enjoyed the poem Cross Country because It wasn't to long, yet it was filled with a heap of detail. I really would recommend this book to students in Intermediate and Primary.

This is me !

Talofa, My name is Anika and I am a year 8 student of Glen Taylor School. I have been attending this school ever since I was 5. My favorite subject is Inquiry, because it is when I feel like I can express my talents most. My teachers for 2018 are Mrs Fa'alili and Whaea Pene and I am excited to learn from them both. My goal this year to to prioritize and put school  first. I am excited for Technology this year to see what else they have for offer, and what new things I can create, share and learn.
