E10. Design your own challenge

E10. Design your own challenge

I have participated in the Cantamaths for school  but I didn't make it in, here is a photo to some of my maths answers and my working out.

Buddy Program Term 2

          Two things that I have enjoyed in Buddy Program are:

  • Being  able to interact with the little kids and then them saying to use that they really enjoyed doing the activities with us.
  • Being able to know some of there strengths and weaknesses.

         Two of the most challenging things for me have been:

  • When you would try and talk to them they would start talking there friends.
  • When you find that u are doing all the work and your others team mates are just having fun playing/doing what they want.

          Two things that I would do differently next time:

  • I would ask my team mates to help if they are playing instead of me just trying to do it myself.
  • I would make sure that I have everything planned out before we start so that the kids aren't sitting around looking bored and doing nothing.

Kapa Haka Excellence post 3

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.

Current Events Term 2, 2017

WALT: I can successfully research a current event.
Here is a link to our online modelling book for this unit of learning.

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.

Here is some evidence of my learning.




My Next Step is to continue to  apply the reading and  research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas.
