Spanish language.....hard to learn

This week I have chosen to learn the Spanish language. I am working towards saying hi my name is Naomi in Spanish.
I think that talking in Spanish is going to be very tuffe and difficult, because it isn’t my own language.

Do you know how hard it is to speak Spanish? Well it is very hard! I have been using the google translator to figure out how to say hi my name is Naomi properly. I managed to say it and it go’s like this (hola mi nombre es Naomi).

Even though the Spanish language was really hard to learn, I managed to do it. It was a lot of fun learning a different language! It didn’t seem to be as easy as I thought it would, but at least I tried. Learning the Spanish language was a challenge for me!

Spectacular Certificate

Every week I am always working on a typing tutor certificate, just as well as the rest of room 18. Typing tutor is always one of our classes assignments every week. We practising how to type 15 words per minute. You will be hearing more about typing.

My certificate

This is a certificate that I have earned this week. I am working towards earning more certificates.

Badminton experience

During the week, room 18 and some other classes had the chance to learn how to play badminton. Room 18 were all excited! Going to the hall, we knew that badminton was going to be CHALLENGING.

As we got to the hall, we met with the tutor that we were going to work with. I totally forgot her name! Well any ways, we were all taught how to hit the shuttles with rackets.

It was honestly difficult to hit the shuttle! I was struggling! Because the shuttle didn’t look like a tennis ball, the first time I tried to hit the shuttle, it didn’t work, but then the second time I tried to hit, I DID.

After we had learnt about badminton, we had competitions. It was two against two! Every time one person lost another person had to come on. The competitions were extremely “COOL”.

It was great that we got to experience about playing this sport. I hope that I get to play badminton next time.

Studying on Canada

During the week, room 18 has been studying about Canada. Because we are studying about Canada, we have been working on assignments based on the country. We are trying to finish our assignments in time so that we can do fun stuff.

We have been studying and searching for Canadian facts! Last week we were working on New Zealand. As said in the first paragraph we all tried to complete the assignments.

I have been trying really hard to finish my work, and managed to finish it. I am glad that I have been working hard and sometimes being focused.

Favorite player

My favorite player in the all blacks is Sonny Bill Williams. He plays inside center! I was researching about all the facts Sonny Bill Williams, and found out that he was born on August the 3rd 1985. I also found out that his full name was Sonny William Williams

This week my class got to choose a All Black player and had to make a passport for them. There was one thing that I had difficulty and that was what his ethnic group was. Luckily I had found out what it was, and it said that his ethnic group was a Samoan, Maori.

This year I am hoping to see the rugby world cup! If I get the chance to go their, I will want to watch the all blacks.

My goal

What I like about this term is that we are studying on the rugby world cup 2011. I also like the topic theme(Keep your eye on the ball), and even getting the chance to draw a rugger character.

My goal for this term is to focus really hard on getting my basic maths tables right, and to finish the work that I get told to do by my teacher. I am also trying hard to achieve my goal! I keep on saying to myself that I need to achieve it by the end of this term.

This term I am looking forward to seeing the production! I think that the production is going to be fantastic and cool. I am also looking forward to the netball tournaments. The tournament is going to be challenging! This term is going to be a big hit.
