Today we had the open day for school so the kapa haka we had to perform at the start of the open day. We performed five songs these were ka waiata, our school song, rere ripo, hare mai and tena matoa. I think that we did really well. The song that I liked the most was rere ripo because we had heaps of sound and it sounded great. The care value that I showed was Active thinking because I had to introduce the Kapa Haka so I had to think of what to say. The leadership trait that I was showing was respect because when I went into the hall I was respectful of the parents around me.
The National Standard that I have been aiming for during this unit of learning is:
Year 7/8: I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.
Each week we have read a short text about a current event/ topic. We then formed questions based on what we had read. After this we researched the answers to our questions and finally we gave our opinions on what we had found out.
