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.


This week in writing we have a 20 minute session for free choice writing. I wrote about The Amazing Football Shot. I think that I did well for the amount of time we got to complete it although It took me awhile to choose my Topic. over the last few weeks of this term we have been looking at different variety's of Poetry


In Discovery I have joined a group that is doing which is better Nike Or Adidas. We have been getting opinions from a variety of people, most of them say Nike but they do not have a reason which does not help us. We have also been searching the web for information that could help us decide.


In Science we had 4 different mystery powders that we had to test the stuff we tested the powders with were Iodine, Water, vinegar, red cabbage water and heat. It was a fun experiment. In my group we worked well together by giving everyone a turn. For me it was the best science activity

Koru Games 2015

Over the last three days all the year 7/8s competed in a sports event called the Koru Games. Some sports were Football, Basketball, Netball And Touch Rugby.I really enjoyed playing with my team, watching all the other games and playing GoalKeeper sometimes. Thinking back to beginning of the year I have improved heaps in my passing and shooting because I was not that good at either of them and I improved heaps. Something I will remember is Our first game against Hornby High School Where we won 1-0 by a longshot, that was the only game we won
