Term 3 reflection

Things I have done well this term
1. Listening to the teacher on the mat
2. Trying my hardest in my learning
3.listen to the teacher when we are not at school eg; Koru Games

things I need to improve on
1. Getting my work done in quicker time
2. Choosing a good learning partner
3. not slacking off in Te Reo sessions


In math I have been converting standard form to ordinary form and the other way round it takes a bit to get the hang of it but now it is quite easy form me to do. I have yet to complete the process of mastering it. We are now doing geometry but we have not started it yet.


Last week I did Librarian, it was very quite because the talent show semi-final was on so there was not much people there and all we did was put books away and check a few peoples books out but it was quite fun looking through the yearbooks.

Te Reo

In Te Reo we have been learning about celebrations. We have been doing role play for a party video, In our group we have different parts to say. I have the easiest part because I only have to do one line then another line with one other person. Another common phrase we are learning is "He aha te mea, ki a koe kei to pati? this translates into "What do you like about your party?" the thing I like about my party is The Cake


For Reading it has been linked to our writing, so we have been reading poetry.when we read the poem we have a certain format to go by. One poem I read was was called "Erosion" it was a poem that rhymed it was a weird poem but it was also quite interesting.
