WALT create tape art for my wall.

This is my canvas, it is going to be black and white. I put the tape on then painted it black. Now I am waiting for it to dry. Then I can take the tape off.

My Discovery Tape Art


WALT create tape art to hang of my wall.

I made this tape art exactly like I would on a canvas but on a piece of cardboard. 

I painted the cardboard red then let it dry. After that I put some tape on it in the pattern that I liked it and painted the different sections the colours I wanted, and let it dry. Now I'm going to try tape art on a canvas.

Careers Writing: Punctuation

This is my last paragraph of my Careers Explanation Writing:

Overall I think that being a forensic scientist is the perfect job for me. Even if there aren't many jobs available in New Zealand, I still think that I will get a job.

Distinction Evidence ( Peer Mediation )

At Peer Mediation when I went into the Book Hub I saw that all the Peer Mediators had turned up to their duty. So I went and grabbed my vest with them and one of the other Peer Mediators got the iPad. 

After that we went out onto the field and started walking around to help solve problems. But we didn't get any problems. One of my friends was asking me to play a netball game called Bounce with her, so I told her I would play after my Peer Mediation duty. After that we saw the that other Peer Mediators were already outside doing there duty, so we all went to put our vests away and I went to play netball with my friend.

Goals For 2015 Reflection

Earlier in the year I created a post of my 2015 goals, here is the link.

My first goal is to achieve all my leadership badges, I think I am doing well because I have my Merit Badge and my Excellence, but my teachers still have to check if I have completed all the tasks toward my badge.

My second goal is to improve in most topics. I've done well with that goal because I've moved up math's goals a few times and and I only have one thing to complete in maths in my 'National Standards Spreadsheet'.

My last goal is to learn new things. So wow I have learnt so much this year in the 7&8s, I love it!

Excellence Evidence ( Peer Mediation )

Yesterday I had Peer Mediation and it was the first time with my new group, it had been changed with winter sport. We were on the field and a few people kept coming up to us and talking to my the other Peer Mediator, she kept ignoring them and eventually they went away. We had no problems and we talked about who would say what in what situation. Then Peer Mediation was over we found the group after us and went off to play.

Excellence Evidence ( Communication Team )

Today at communication team I went in and Miss Patten thanked me and the other few people for turning up because not everyone came. The previous week we took some photos and videos of the Zumba class for the year eights Wellington trip. So today we made an iMovie with them. Then Miss Patten came back and watched our movie, she told us it was awesome. 

Excellence Evidence ( Librarian )

I have librarian every odd week on friday, but last week I knew I couldn't make it because of winter sports. So the day before my duty I went to the library to see Miss Ward and see if I could change my day. She told me that there was no room on the other days and that I should just one when I can. She thanked me for coming in to tell her and not just leaving her wondering where I was.

Excellence Evidence ( Kauri Team Events ) Cross Country

Yesterday at Cross Country we went to Halswell Domain. The year 7/8s went last so we watched the other races. Then we went to play the game that some of the year 7/8s set up, it was really fun but also really hard. Then we waited a little bit more and our race was on. I was really nervous and so was my friend. We decided to run together so we both had someone supporting each other. Then the race started and we had earlier said that we would just jog-run-jog-run and so on. So that's what we did. We were almost done and then we went around the last corner toward the finish line. I was so excited that it was almost over so me and my friend sprinted to the end. We got there and they handed me a 5th place slip and said that me and her were tied.

Then........          we collapsed.

Excellence Evidence ( Kauri Team Events ) ZUMBA!

Today I was on my communications duty and asked Mrs Patten if she would like us to record the Zumba lesson in the hall. Three of us went along, so we took turns recording and joining in the fun. Then we went back to room 11 to edit the videos and next week we are going to make them into a Zumba movie. It was great fun!

An Afternoon in Autunm

This poem is about an afternoon in Autumn, it will be full of awesome!
The leaves in the trees are rustling as loud as a gong.
The bright sun is glowing on the trees and the gust of wind is a cool breeze.
The Autumn leaves spin off the tree, like a helicopter propeller.
They blow onto the ground with a blast of wind and land with their last move.

The three language features that I chose are Alliteration, Simile and Rhyme. I chose Simile because I went to the breakout and had some good ideas. I chose Rhyme because I felt that it would be nice to have some rhyming in my poem. Lastly I chose Alitteration because it seemed cool to have word with the same letter at the start in my poem. My solo level is "Learner Directed / Relational".
