There is a new member to our classroom and he is Uala's pet rat. His name is Cheeko he used to have a brother named Sanchez but he past away. Cheeko has a tail that feels like leather. Cheeko is very special to us because he is our class pet and Ualas pet. Uala loves Cheeko more than anything. Cheeko likes to eat popcorn, ice cream cones,peas and corn. Cheeko does not like people to crowd around him or to much noise around him. He has very sharp teeth so fingers away otherwise they get bitten off. Cheeko loves to sleep and everyone wants to hold him because his fur is so soft it feels like silk or cotton wool. Every week there are two new rat monitors that refill his water bottle and food bowl. At the moment the rat monitors are Georgia and Harry at first it was Uala because he is Cheeko's owner. Cheeko is a very very funny rat. Cheeko likes to hide in hoodies, jumpers ,pockets and in armpits.
Here is a video of me holding Cheeko...

On Wednesday the 29th of May, we have our school cross country at Grey Lynn park. For the past few weeks we have been training extremely hard. We have been running non-stop for ten minutes around the school every morning. We have been totaling our distance as a class and we made it to Cape Reingas' lighthouse. Our new goal is to get back to Kaitaia from Cape Reinga before Wednesday. Here is where we are now....

We made it to Cape Reinga! Room 13 has officially made it to Cape Reinga, today we ran our best distance as a class, in ten minutes we 52.75Km (well I was walking I had cold). All togeather our class ran a total of 455km isn't that great !!! I think we did stupendous we even had 29km spare because its only 426Km from School to the Cape. We used that to get to the light house we still had loads of km left I think we travelled half of Auckland pretty cool. I think this is pretty impressive and also very tiring.
This is the way we ran!
This is where we got to!

On Sunday we played our first game of flippa ball against a team called the Water Sharks. In our team we have Felix, Maya, Kaia and Holly who are in my class. It was there first time playing flippa ball. We had a great time and won the game 1-0. I scored the goal it reminded me about the time I scored my best goal EVER. I was at a flippa ball game with my team in Term 1. We were against the Good Shepard's. No team has ever beaten them and we didn't either. I was in attack with Ethan then the ball smashed infront of Ethan he picked it up and passed me the ball very quickly and it landed in the water with a splash. Then the Good Shepard's defence came charging towards me I picked up the ball as fast as I could but just as I looked up the goalie came stepping towards me. I lifted up the ball and through the ball right into the goal. That was the only goal we scored that day.

In room 13 we recently just started counting up how far people in room 13 were running for cross country practice, well okay not just recently about a week ago. So lets get on with the story now we kind of took the idea off room 12. Each lap around is about 250m and we tally up how many laps we do then convert that into metres and add them all up. Anyway on Wednesday the 15th of May our total km run is 189Km. I thought that was great we are trying to get up to Cape Reinga its the top of New Zealand. We took some photos of where we got up to on the map. We have gone past Whangarei and Hikurangi. The next run we will probably pass Paihia. Uala and me counted up what we got up to, today we ran 41.25Km altogether, I think we went pretty far well thats what i thought if you ask me. When we are running my normal amount of laps I would go is about 5 or 6 laps in ten minutes, thats how long we run for. I like doing the running because we do not have to do work for ten minutes, now I find that Impressive.
