Merit must do #3

Today also at assembly we had to present the house points again it went pretty well and I wasn't as nervous as I was the first time I did it. When we were presenting, some times I forgot that we had to do the hand signals to make them stop drum rolling and clapping, when it came to clapping the little kids didn't stop when we did the hand signals it was a little bit frustrating but we got through it anyway. The care value I showed the most was excellence. I showed this by when the kids weren't listening to the signals I waited for them to stop talking so that me and Katie could carry on with the house points.

Merit can do #3

Today after assembly me and all the other leaders packed up the hall (we put the all the seats back) it was a really good job and it was quick to we also had some relievers today who need some help with stuff so when they asked me something then I would tell them what to do e.g when they couldn't get the other kids attention I told them that they should use the horn and they did and it got the other students attention. The care values I showed most was community and respect because I was helping others when needed and also treating are relievers as if they were are normal home room teachers.

Home learning challenge merit #1

C7. Start a new hobby, research it and make something to give to someone as a gift (E.g pottery, origami, cards, knitting).

The 21st of February (the same day as the big earth quake) is my uncles birthday I decided that I was going to make a card for him, then I remembered that it was also a home learning challenge it took me a long time to make but it was definitely worth it.

Here is some photos of what it look like :

Leadership Article Writting

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (eg semicolons, colons, parentheses)

I have been especially focusing on using parentheses and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.

So overall to be a great leader (like Mr Barack Obama) you need to have the six leadership traits Integrity, Goal focused, Trustworthy, Active thinker, Resilient and Motivational.

Merit Can do #2

The last few weeks at tech haven't been that great but a way I showed leadership was by when the teachers asked us to do something I would do it, also when we were on the bus I would only talk to the person next to me which was usually Charlotte L. The values I showed the most was Community and Respect because when someone asked me to do something I did it.

Merit Must do #2

This week we got to present the house points for the first time. when we got called up Katie and I were very nervous then when we were on stage it got better lots of the kids where into the drum roll and the new presentation, this week we also had run bike run we had to get some buckets for people to put there pozis in it was really fun at the run bike run. The leader ship value I showed most was Community because when I saw some rubbish then I would pick it up I also cheered for all the people that I saw.

Merit must do #1

Today we did buddy program I was teaching the juniors how to play with out or with minimal equipment. it was very challenging at one point we had lots of kids that did not want to play the games we had so we got them to tell us the games they wanted to play. I showed leadership by being resilient when the kids wouldn't listing and not playing. the value I showed was excellence I showed it by, when some people wanted the court we split it in half so that both groups could have the court.
