Koru games reflection

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was…

Our team won no games but we did have 2 draws.

I found the experience to be fun because it was good to play a sport i love

In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is relational because we were all good at skills but not so much at calling for the ball

For Teamwork; my solo level is multistructual because i tried to share the ball as much as i could so every one could have a good time

Individuals and groups
I need help to work in a group (with teachers or other students
I can work in a group with my friends.
I can work in a group with anyone in my  year level or team  

I can respond positively to the needs of others
I can reflect on how well I work with the group and seek feedback on how I can improve

I need help to interact with others.

I need help to participate in a team.
I can interact with others one to one.

I can participate in a team.
I can interact with others in a small group.

I can participate and take responsibility in a team.

I can participate and take responsibility in a team and explain my choices in terms of team outcomes.
I can participate in creating healthy teams by taking responsibility and critical action.

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written LINK

Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was finding the right words to use.

My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

excellence 2017 home learning challenge 4

A few weeks ago I went to the Hillmorton High School opening night, I also had a private meeting with Riccarton High Schools principal and he showed me  around Riccarton High School.
I loved Going round Hillmorton High School Because we got to do activities  and get a taste of everything that we could do. I also liked Riccarton Because it was one on one with the principal. Over all my Favorite High School was Hillmorton because everyone there was so nice and there was lots of subjects that I liked.

I think the care value i showed was community for showing up to both of them.

 I think the leadership trait i showed was Respect because i was polite and talked to people.

The most interesting book I have read was super hero pets true tales of animal heroes because there are some amazing stories from a dog facing his own fears for his owner to a cat dialing 111. I would defiantly  recommend this book if you love animals and if you love exiting stories!

term 2 novel study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel silver stream

I found this novel not too good  because it was very boring and at the end it left you wondering what was gonna happen.

During the novel I had to complete a thinking map which shows that I can classify how the author has shown the theme of the book.
National Standard this covers

    • Year 9/10 Standard
      • I can locate, evaluate, analyse and summarise information and ideas within texts and across a range of texts.

Overall I would give this novel a rating of  4/10 and I would / would not recommend it to others to read because it was very boring in parts and i didn't like the book that much
