Koru Games Reflection

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was Netball

Our team came 12th

I found the experience to be interesting because we did really well and could have beaten teams we lost to.

In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is extended abstract because I can give people feed back on how they could work better and I can get feed back on what I need to do.

For Teamwork; my solo level is extended abstract because I can take responsibility on being captain and I can participate with a good attitude.

Individuals and groups
I need help to work in a group (with teachers or other students
I can work in a group with my friends.
I can work in a group with anyone in my  year level or team  

I can respond positively to the needs of others
I can reflect on how well I work with the group and seek feedback on how I can improve

I need help to interact with others.

I need help to participate in a team.
I can interact with others one to one.

I can participate in a team.
I can interact with others in a small group.

I can participate and take responsibility in a team.

I can participate in creating healthy teams by taking responsibility and critical action.

Letter Writing

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written Draft

Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was thinking of what to write and how it can be made formal.

My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

Te hapua Distinction #6

On Friday Mr Muller's class drove down to Te Hapua because it was raining.
When we got there we went and sat down on the seating area in the library and waited for the teachers to come and let us in.
Our class is split into two groups and one group did robotics and coding.
I had been doing robotics for the past fie weeks and now I am in coding. We watched a video to start off the seson and learn why it is a good thing to learn coding.
Firstly we learnt how to use different codes we were using scratch to do our coding then we did a get to know me quiz using lots of different codes that we learnt.

I showed respect by listening to the teacher while she was talking.

I was also being trustworthy by not going on sites I wasn't meant to be on.

Key Leadership role #4

On Wednesday the heads and deputys went to student council and everyone else who got voted to be there classes representives. The meeting took place at 12:35 in the hall foyer set up in a circle with chairs.
This was about our 2nd meeting for this term and we started off by Anneke calling out each class to see if they were here.
Next we talked about an ice cream day that we are planning.
Then Mrs Trotter asked if we had hte prices of the ice creams and askedis the year 4 and 5 students  had made posters to say that there was an ice cream day happening.
That was basically all we talked about until it was 12:50 which is when student council finishes

I showed respect by contributing to the group discussion positively.

I was also being trustworthy by showing up on time and not being late.

Operations using fractions, percentages, decimals and integers.

In Maths we have been learning to: Understand operations using fractions, percentages, decimals and integers.

Here is some evidence of my learning.

Here are screenshots for all 6 IXL activities that I have completed.

Extended Abstract assessment task answer sheet and the activity sheet.

Something that challenged me during this unit of learning was Solve percentage problems where the percentage is unknown because it took me longer to figure out how to do it and complete it./

My next step is to continue to apply these strategies to real life/ problem solving situations.

Reading - Evaluate Texts

In reading we have been learning to….make decisions about the usefulness of the text for purpose, by using a variety of criteria to evaluate.

Here is a link to our online modelling book

We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Status

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:
(link your own learning for each of these activities. Please make sure your sharing settings are open)

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge and evaluate texts as I read them, checking for readability, accuracy, relevance and quality of language/ information
