ROOM XV: The Sugar Report

The Sugar Report

Room XV is currently learning to write reports in our writing time; we are also learning to understand how sugar, in particular how too much sugar effects the body. 
Room XV is looking to become apart of the healthy food revolution and make our learning count!

Nivarah working hard on her laptop.

Here are some outtakes from Room XV’s amazing reports:

Sugar is a naturally grown food in Fiji and used all over the world. It’s also used in lots of food and drinks.

Sugar is in all kinds of food. Sugar is in fizzy drinks, lollies and sweet food but if you eat to much sugar you may end up having diseases, like diabetes, heart problems and lung problems when you get obese.

Sugar can cause toothaches. It is really, really bad for little kids under six, as well as those over six. It makes peoples teeth rotten and people will may have to have their teeth pulled out.

By Tupou

Too much sugar can be addictive, but it can also make your food sweeter and nicer. The sugar in many drinks gives people so much energy. That is good but if you set down your energy will go to waste. If you eat too much energy and this will infect your body and might make you obese.

Sugar is in most foods in the supermarket and there are only some foods that have no sugar inside them. You can only check to see the amount of sugar by reading the label on the side of food.

Room XV:

Armel in action on the monkey bars

On Thursday of Week 3 T Manawa did a strength and fitness test, as part of our inquiry. Firstly, Room XV lined up doing the amazing burpees. Half the class went first, and the second half followed.

Harishna swings into action!

Next we did squats. We had to slowly lower our bodies down pretending to sit on an invisible chair and stop and hold ourselves. It was hard.

Then we did shuttle runs across the senior court. You have to do as many shuttle runs from end of one line, touching it with your hand and then run back again to the other line.

Finally we did the amazing and powerful monkey bars swing. We have to keep a record of how many rungs you can swing on (not missing any) before you drop.

It was incredible.

Room XV in hockey-action!
This week Room XV has been learning how to play hockey. Our coach’s name is Lydia. She has been teaching Room XV how to play hockey for four incredible weeks.

Teavali & Meliame in a hockey face-off.

Firstly she taught us how to swipe tackle. It is not like a rugby tackle as you have to swipe the ball off the other team with your hockey stick. That is how you tackle in hockey.

Next she taught us how us how to pass. You whack the ball off to your partner to pass the ball. It was extremely exciting to learn to play a new sport.

I like playing hockey because we don’t get to play hockey very often. We've learnt some super skills and look forward to learning more.

Room XV: Awesome!

Room XV 

Whaea Barb and the camera observe awesomness.

The spotlight was on Te Manawa!

On Tuesday Room XV did our WW1 human timeline again. It was the same awesome one we did last term. All of us had to do it on the field and Tufele was the talker for our group. It was really fun for us all. Many people watched us, including Whaea Barb. We had to do it again because we were getting videoed for a cool movie.

Room XV:

The Anzac spirit lives on in the youth of today!

On a lovely day Room XV made a fabulous wreath for own school Dawn Parade. Room XV had to design a wreath using poppy circles, and one that looked like a telephone box, as that was what we voted for. 

We also did many other things to help us understand Anzac day. The fun part was when we had to pretend to be in WW1 and write or draw our parents. I drew a really cool picture. It was cool after thank thanks to Tufele as he brought in some tea and we dipped our pictures into it. The tea made the picture look really old.

Harishna and our Anzac spirit.
Lastly, Room XV decided who should hold the lovely wreath. We voted for Tupou and Pilimi to represent Room XV. They were proud to represent and hold the awesome wreath in front of the school.

By Meliame

First on Friday at 9am all the class from Sylvia Park School went to the hall. We went for the dawn parade. We sang the song of New Zealand. Then Whaea Bard said welcome to many men. Then Pilimi and Tupou took the mobile to the hall.
