Choosing a Flag

We had to do oral language task as a 4-3-2-1 task (4 minutes to speed read, 3 minutes to share choice, 2 minutes to share with someone else, 1 minute to to talk about their choices). We did this based on our flag choice for the new New Zealand. For my choice I chose the black-and-white Silver Fern because it tells me that their will be history behind it all

Dear T4 and T1 me

Dear Term Four Ducati Hopefully you’ve done exactly what I said, if you don’t remember which you will. These are the goals that I want you to do, get at least one certificate, finish all your work on time, try to get more than fifty posts, and that is all. But by doing these things remember, first of all do your best at everything that you like doing, secondly don’t get distracted by anything or anyone, and for the last, focus on your work and put everything that is learning onto your blog. Have you done what I said? Did they come true? Am I happy so far? If not then I’m not mad at you. Your year in 2015 might be the best in your life so far. I wish you luck and see you in December From Ducati Term 1 L.I. To reflect on personal goals set in Term 1 Dear Term One Me By looking at the letter, I see that I haven’t fulfilled a few of your wishes. But I did finish work on time, I did get at fifty posts but not more, sorry I haven’t gotten a certificate yet. But not everything can be achieved in a moments notice. So I’m sorry you feel disappointed but it was the best I could do. And for my personal goals? I didn’t really have any, wasn’t sure what it could’ve been. I may have been away a while more than most people, but I have done the best I could. I have concentrated on my work throughout the year, but at the end of the day you are happy and all ready for the new year! Hope good things come to you! From Term Four You

Writing Sample with critical friend

Today I partnered up with for each of us to comment on each other's sample. We each have the job of being a Critical friend. Critical friends help find the faults in our writing: Like words that don't make sense, missing letters, and sentences that need to be fixed. To do all this we used a writing toolbox to critique for each other on different levels from 1-7. The sections are all different; there are punctuation, vocab, organisation, sentence structure, structure and language, and ideas.

Science at Tamaki College was very stimulating. The year 7/8 learnt about the four main features of science also known as the strands: they are living, material, physical, planet earth and beyond. We did a tally chart for the people who had the most favorite food choices, I chose chocolate sundae. But overall, the day was great

Basketball Session

At basketball, I didn't really get involved. But I did take some awesome pictures of my class doing it. Their were many positions that my class (but not me) learnt, I can't remember them though. But here is a collage of the pictures I took
