WALT: Learn to dance with girls and learn different dances.
This shows that we are preparing for formal.
I think I did well for our first dance practice because I was very enthusiastic and I learnt the dance moves really quickly.
The songs are The Waltz and Rock and Roll Reel
Here is a link to the songs and us dancing to them.
My next step is to teach others that need help.

This term I think I did well on my speech because, I spoke clearly and at a good volume.
This shows that I persuaded mostly everyone to my speech.
If I could do it again I would look up more and speak slower.

Goal 3 for term 4

Next term I could improve on trying my hardest on fitness.
I want this to happen so I can burn off more energy so I am not hyper during class.
This means I will be sweating and puffing because I went 100% on fitness


Something I have done well this term is finishing most of my SDL.
The reason for this is I pick a good learning buddy.
To finish all of my SDL I could bring my BYOD so I get a device every time.

Goal 2 for term 4

My second goal for term 4 is to add to my national standards spread sheet more often.
This shows I don't sign off my goals often.
I want to add to this spread sheet at least every week

Good learning buddy

Something I did well was choosing a good learning buddy.
This shows I can get on with my learning because I won't talk.
My next step is to choose a good learning buddy and a good learning place.

Goal 1 for term 4

One of my goals next term is to get to class earlier at lunch times.
This shows I get to class late and get told off for being late.
To help improve this goal I could stop what I am doing straight away when the bell rings.

Koru Games 2015

Over the last three days the year 7/8 area played four sports, I played football and I was in the B team. I really enjoyed it because we got to play a lot of games and everyone got the ball. Thinking back to the beginning of the year, I really improved because I can make dribbles and I still pass heaps. Next year if table tennis was available I would play it.

WALT: Burn things and find out why they burn
My next step is to try burning different things
Last Thursday we did science. The experiments we did were around fire. The first experiment we did was hold a test tube full of water over fire. The small amount of water bubbled out of the tube without even being hot. The most amount of water bubbled out when it was hot. The second experiment was putting iron above the fire and it sparkled but did not burn.

Writing: Is it ever ok to lie?

Friday, 14 August 2015


My other term goal is to show up to all of my leadership roles. Mostly peer mediation because a lot of people on the playground need help from a peer mediation. For PALS I show up to my duty everytime but one thing I could do next time is get more people to join our game, for more people to join our game we could try new games for example, high jump.

Friday, 7 August 2015


For writing we have been doing persuasive writing and my topic is: Is ever ok to lie? I think it Is. I am going to show my intro. Some people would think lying is never ok. In my opinion there are times when lying is the best thing to do. If lying is never alright tell me that you have never lied in your life. Lying is not ok for bad reasons, so I am going to tell you the example when it actually is good to lie.


In science we have been learning about soluble and insoluble. Soluble means something that can dissolve. We have also been learning about density. One of the experiments we have been doing is the M&M in water.

WALT: find the primeter and area of a shape. In maths we learnt how to find the area and perimeter of a shape. To figure out the perimeter of a shape you always need to plus all the sides. To figure out the area of a shape you always need to times and chunk the shape.

Merit badge peer mediation evidence
Today I showed I was a role model by doing my peer mediation duty. Our group was supervising the Kakano area. We had no problems at lunch time. What we could do next time is explore more of the area for kids out of bounds. We also could of ask kids if they have any problems because alot of kids don't want to tell anyone what happens.
WALT: explore authors purpose and question intent. We read the story, Watch for edge slumps and we did a prediction activity sheet and a vocabulary sheet like always. I chose to do the, What's the big idea? summary sheet. Our Must Dos activity was to answer some questions of the new Worlds highest and longest glass bridge ever. The other Must Do was a hyphen activity. Our teacher session was to draw a New Zealand sign and write a story about it, I will show you my sign and tell you my story.

This is sign is only found on the longest highways. If you past this speed limit you will pay five dollars and get executed on the spot. If you go slower than the speed limit, others are allowed to damage your car in any way.   
Merit badge PALS evidence
On Monday the 8th of June I showed I was a role model to the little kids by setting up a game for PALS. We had the field layed out for a game of octopus. Next we tried to gather a lot of people. Unfortunately no one wanted to play. What we could do next time is be more enthusiastic for the game and be more welcoming. Also let people know in advanced.
