Distinction Evidence ( Peer Mediation )

At Peer Mediation I went to the Book Hub and then the other Peer Mediator turned up and ( as always ) the third Peer Mediator didn't turn up. 

Then we got our vests on and grabbed the iPad. After that we went outside and onto the field to start Peer Mediation. We walked around the field a few times and we had no problems at all. So we kept walking around the field on our bright green vests, so people could see us. Then it was ten past one so went went back to the book hub and put our vests and the iPad away. 

After Peer Mediation I went to find the other people who were on Peer Mediation after us.

Distinction Evidence ( Communication Team )

When I turned up to Communication Team, Miss Patten was there along with the other people in Communication Team. Miss Patten said that we wil start a new section in the book for term three. So we started thinking up some ideas eg. Oaklands Got Talent, Careers, Assembly. Me and my friend said that we could do the assembly's, so Miss Patten said we could ask for this camera that takes really high quality photos from the office, so we went and got it and gave it to her. She told us we could go to her before the assembly to get it.

So we went to the assembly and got the camera off Miss Patten and my friend got one of our class iPads to use. During the assembly we took some photos then in the middle we swapped cameras so both of is had a turn with each. Then after the assembly we have the camera back to Miss Patten and went back to class.

Distinction Evidence ( Peer Mediation )

When I got to Peer Mediation I saw that only one other Peer Mediator turned up, which is what usually happens because they never turn up. So we went outside and onto the field. We walked around the field a few times. 

Then some of our friends came and asked if we were almost done. I told them we had just started and I would come and play when I had finished Peer Mediation. So they went away and me and the other Peer Mediator thought we saw some people arguing, so we went and asked if there was any problem. They said that there was a problem but they solved it with a round of paper, scissors, rock. So we carried on walking around the field and there were no more problems so we went to put our stuff away. Then I went to tell the other Peer Mediators that they were on. 

Distinction Evidence ( PALS )

At PALS I met up with the other people in my group and we went to Mr Muller and asked if he had any ideas of what to do for the Kauri Team. He said that there were some elastics in the PE shed we could use, so we got them out and went out onto the field. 

The elastics are a stretchy band that go around two peoples legs and another person can do this thing in the middle, you can see it in the picture. It was really fun because I learnt the jumping dance that you do with the elastics. It's fun trying to do it when the elastics are really high. After that we packed up the elastics and put them back them we went back to class.

Distinction Evidence ( Technology )

When we got to Lincoln School, I got off the bus and went into the Hall for Design. Then we got started, so I got my box out and started on my room. I'm doing a Bowling Alley so I was trying to make the ball spitter. I grabbed some cardboard and drew up the net for the box. 

After that I cut out the net and glued it together, then I wrapped it up in coloured paper and finished up the top. Then my friend asked me if I could make up a bed for her room. So I said yes and made it for her. She thanked me and asked if I needed any help. I said no because we were almost packing up so I said she could maybe help me another time. After that we got back on the bus and went back to school. 

Goals for 2015 Term 3 Reflection

1: Get all of my leadership badges
( Merit, Excellence, Distinction )

My first goal is going really well because I have achieved my Merit and Excellence Badge and I am working towards my Distinction.

2: Improve in most topics
I have improved in lots of topics. Like in maths I have completed the number section in my National Standards. I have moved through many maths, reading and writing groups and have learnt many new things.

3: Learn new things
My last goal is to learn new things. I love it in the new year 7&8 learning environment. It has been really awesome meeting all of the new year 8's and the new teachers.

Writing- Use punctuation in my writing

The paragraph of writing below shows that I have used Speech Marks, Exclamation Marks, Commas, Apostrophes and Question Marks. I have also used Capital Letters and Full Stops. 

"Hello!" says the Orange. "I'm the Annoying Orange, this is Archie the Apple and Sour the Lemon."

"Why, why fruit?"

"Hey buddy you're a banana!"

I have used these in the correct way and I know why I have used them.

Distinction Evidence ( Communication Team )

At Communication Team I went into Room eleven and saw that not many people had come to Communication Team, only about five. We waited for Mrs Patten, we had to wait a long time because she was late, so we talked about what we could do. 

Then when she came inside, she asked me to grab the Communication Team Book from underneath the chair. So I did and opened it up to an empty page. She told us that there was no point starting something new because it was the last week of the term and we would have to finish it then. I really like Communication Team because we get to create movies of what has been happening around the school. We also get to attend some things to video eg. Talent Shows and Zumba. The thing that isn't so great is that sometimes we turn up and she comes and tells us that we won't be doing it that day, which really disappoints me because I really like Communication Team.
