What I did today

Today I slept in till 9, and then I went to visit my aunties and my little cousin. Then we went outside to play on the trampoline. Next we went inside to have lunch. We had noodles with juice and cookies. After that we went to watch television. At five, we then changed the channel to Nickelodeon because the slime fest was on. Finally, we had to cook dinner.

I enjoyed my day today, because I had a lot of fun.

Presentation about Earthquakes

Reflection for Term 3 2014

My reflection for Term 3, 2014:

The activities we did:

In Term 3, we had Tae Kwon Do. Tae Kwon Do started on week 2 of Term 3, and finished on week 9 of Term 3. We learnt how to defend ourselves if someone tried to kidnap us and we also learned moves to use as self - defense. It was a really fun experience and we learnt a lot.

We also had our school cross country. First it was the junior school, and then it was the senior school's turn to have cross country. We started at 12:00 and finished just before 1:00 on a Friday, but I can't remember what week it was. We had to do 3 laps, and it was very exercising, and also very tiring. In my age group, I came 4th, just 3 - 5 seconds after Fusi, who came 3rd. It was really fun and tiring. 

After that, though, the girls in my class went to prepare a party for Fahina, who was leaving our school. When she came into the Hall, (where we were hosting the party) she was very surprised, which was amazing because we wanted to do something fun for her before she left,and it was sad to see her go, and it was also good to have a shared lunch with her and the rest of the class and also the teachers in the School which was special.

Also the year 7 and 8's in our school (including me) had a day where we have Careers day. Careers day is when someone organizes to invite someone they know (or themselves) to talk about their journey about their lives, what influenced them to work where they work, or what they do as a job, and they also give handy information and advice. The people that we had visit us were: A Police officer named Andrew and his partner.(but I forgot his name.) We also had an artist named Dagnar Dyck, Mrs Tofa, Mrs Ripata, A teacher from a different school, A deputy principal from Tamaki College, A team of trainee nurses/doctors and their teacher from Mapas at the University of Auckland, Mr Parker, and a few others.

In the classroom:


In reading, our learning intention was to use an infrencing strategy to find answers to questions in the text. 


In writing, we were learning to write a recount by using a checklist on structural and language features of a recount.


In maths were were learning to solve simple ratio problems by using repeated addition.


This Term was cool because it was fun, and because we learnt a lot of things. I can't wait for next term.
