Home learning challenge #3

E8.choose a musical instrument and learn a new song 

I have been learning the drums for about a year now and I have recently learnt a new song, this song is called heavy dirty soul by twenty one pilots I find this song really fun to do and it was really hard but I got there it was really fun but what helped me most was nick because he helped me learn how to do the beat. I have also learn LA devote we just didn't add the high hat it still sounded cool even without the high hat.

Leadership Merit can do #5

Today when I went to tech and on the bus I talk to Natasha we were talking about what group we had next because we changed groups for technology I was in science and next term i'm doing textiles I'm want to make a stress ball. The trait I showed was resilience because when ever I got something wrong I kept trying. The care value I showed was active thinking because I did my sowing lines good and then I got to help others with doing there machines and helping them remember how to do it.

Current Events Term 1

In Current Events I covered these topics:
  • The design of the Halswell Skate Park and I made a submission to the council.
  • Donald Trump’s Refugee Plan
  • Christchurch Earth Memorial
  • The new Ngā Puna Wai Sports Facility
  • The Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan with a submission to the council.


My favorite topic was...because…


Here is a link to my learning on the Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan.


The Reading National Standards I have achieved are
  • Year 9/10
    • As I read I can make decisions about the usefulness of the text for the purpose - Eg: by using a variety of criteria to evaluate

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel cast away!!


I found this novel interesting  because I have never really read a book based on a true story and I found it very interesting how they learned how to survive on disappointment island.


During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows I how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.


National Standard this covers
  • Year 9/10 Standard
    • I can monitor my understanding as it develops during my reading, and adjust my strategies to address any comprehension problems Eg: If I don’t understand a passage I have read I can re-read it, read-on, use pictures or diagrams, or explore the meaning of some of the vocabulary.
    • I can use strategies to analyse ideas and information and to reflect critically on the meaning I am gaining from my reading. (Eg: I can think about the meaning of the information and ideas and how this fits with what I think)

Home learning challenge #2

C7. Start a new hobby, research it and make something to give to someone as a gift (E.g pottery, origami, cards, knitting). When it was my mums birthday I decided that I would make a card for her. It was a great birthday party we had kfc (ha ha) and it was good!! This is what my card looked like










I think that this looks good but there was supposed to be a bow on the left corner but it fell of so I could of found a better way to stick it on.

Leadership blog post #5 Merit must do

Today I had to collect the house points and also I had to say who the winning house was for the term it was a really good term because there was two houses that were always very close but in the end Rata won for the term, also we had to announce this on the school speaker thing  I was really nervous with talking into it and messing up the words so Mr ladbrook said " you know what i'm going to record it and then play it over  and over again and ask people what they think you need to work on." . The leadership trait I showed most this term was trustworthy because even though all my friends and all the kids from school asked me who won I didn't tell them who won. I think that next term will be better because I will have lots of experience with what to do I just need to work on remembering to do the hand signals.

Merit Must do N. 4

Today me and Katie had to do the house points, but it was raining but we decided that it was OK to go and do them, but the laptop would get wet so I asked Sophie if I could use her jacket to protect the laptop she sad that we could, so we used it to cover the laptop from the rain. it was really hard because it was really windy and wet so when we could we went from the cloak bays to the class rooms so we didn't get wet. the care value I demonstrated most was Active thinking because I asked to use Sophie's jacket and also Thought to use the cloak bays.

Merit Leadership #4 can do

Today I showed leadership by helping out Mr Muller by put out/back the chairs for assembly I had trouble getting the chairs on to the stacks because they were really long, the way I fixed that was by getting someone to help me it was much easier that way. the care value I showed was the most was respect because I used me time to help Mr Muller put the chairs out and back again.
