Technology (Excellence badge)

On Tuesday we had tech. I was in only talking to the person next to me and only talking quietly. But I Remind some people nicely of the bus rules. When we arrived at tech I went to cooking and we made spaghetti and meat balls. They took quite a long time to make because you have to cook everything, present everything and then plate everything up. Once that was all done and we ate it we went back onto the bus and drove all the way back to school. The bus was a little quieter but was still quite noisy. Next week we are doing the cupcake challenge. My design is a puppy, flower and a heart.

Helping out around the school (Excellence badge)

Last Thursday I helped out Miss Frampton out by sorting out the junior dance group while she was away. It's was quite tricky because there was about 45 children and I also had to learn a dance in 2 weeks. The dance we did was called lean on. In the morning when I had to remind them all to come to the hall for a practice at lunch. Nobody turned up but 1 so we had a practice together. When it was time for the concert I got them all into their positions and said that I will help them out. After that had finished they went back to their class and I had to do another couple of performances.

Reading prove it

WALT: I can make links across texts by recognizing connectives or adverbial clauses.
My reading goal was adverbial clauses. Here is a few examples, An adverbial clause is something that appears as a part of a sentence. It also does not make sense alone and it tells us how,where,when,how long or why. Listing things also does not count. Here is an example of an adverbial clauses, with a smiling face he accepted the award. The highlighted part is the adverbial clause because it appears as part of a sentence, it does not make sense alone and it tells how he accepted the award. We also learnt about some connectives. A connective is something that is used to link one sentence to another or you use it to extend a sentence. Some examples are, in addition to, as a result and even though. 
My solo level is relational because I feel I can do it with no help and I could help somebody in my group.

Peer mediation (Excellence badge)

Today for peer medation I was on my own because Molly was in Wellington with all the other year 8s. It was very hard because I had to sort out multiple problems and I had to try find somebody else to help me. I also had to leave about 5 minutes early because mr Forman had organised for me to do a high jump practice so I had to try and find somebody to fill in for me for the last 5 minutes. When I was sorting out some problems a little girl had hurt herself so I had to take her to the duty teacher. After I did that I finished up with the problem I was doing and then I went and found somebody to fill in for me. Next week I hope Molly is here so I'm not on my own.

Communication team (Excellence badge)

This week for communication team I got to leave a little bit earlier because I had finished all 3 iMovies and I had finished taking all the photos I needed to. The iMovies were a little tricky to do because I had a time limit. In the end I finished them in about 15 minutes because I had finished half of the ones the other day. I also had to go outside and take photos of people showing the CARE values. Most of the people were but some others were not quite doing it. Then once I finished that I had to make a pic collage. That was trickey because I had to try and fit all the pictures into one little collage. That took me about 5 minutes and after that was done I waited for kyla to finish and then we went out to play for the last 25 minutes. Next week I have to take some more photos and then I have to make them into another collage.

Peer mediation (Excellence badge)

Today for peer medation I had to try and find Molly again. In the end I found her and we carried on with our job. It was fun and challenging because we had about 3-4 issues and they were quite difficult to deal with because everyone kept talking over each other. After we sorted them out we had to try and find a teacher because someone got hurt and they came to us. Next week I will make sure I remind Molly to turn up and then we will try sort the problems out faster.

Kapa Haka ( Excellence badge)

Today for Kapa Haka there was only about 30 people because everyone else was at the choir practice.
Even though they were not there the ones that were left behind carried on like usual. We also had to practice our poi for all our upcoming performances. When we were doing our poi I kinda mucked up a little bit but even though that happened I still carried on like usual. I think I did really well because even though I always try my best today I tried a lot harder so that we sang better and louder. Next week when we're all together again I think we will try more and get our volume up more.
