Koru games reflection


Koru Games Reflection

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was netball

Our team won 6 games out of 10

I found the experience to be very fun because I got to see lots of my friends that are out of school and it was great to see the year 7's getting better and better and supporting them through it to make them feel like they are a good addition to the team.

In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is relational because I am very good at supporting people and making them feel better and I look on what they positively not scolding what they do badly.

For Teamwork; my solo level is relational because I pass the ball a lot and don't just pass to the people who are particularly strong, I give everyone a fair turn even if they through the ball away.

distinction leadership 6

Today the leaders had a meeting about the chorus box. We had a look at all the comments we had made on what we should put on the box and they were all good! We are going to start doing the drawings now then send the best one off to the professional and he can draw it on the box and we can paint in the lines. I showed community by putting an idea what to do on the box, I showed leadership by listening to the other peoples ideas. I was a role model by listening to Mr L.

distinction technology 6

Today I went to tech with all the other year 7/8's. In the bus I sat with Savannah, Sophie and Charlotte in the back seat of the bus. When we finally got to tech Savannah and I walked to the woodwork and started on our speakers. Mine is white with a picture of belle from beauty and the beast on it and Savannah's is all black with a picture of Tinkerbell on one side. After a good 30 mins we went to mandarin and learned about days of the week. I showed excellence by singing the mandarin song. I showed leadership by helping other people with their wires in their box. I was a role model by doing the right things and getting involved at interval.

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


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

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was remembering to do all the dates and addresses and stuff. And also getting the format right.


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

distinction kapa haka 5

Today was kapa Haka and we started off by singing our main waiata which is Ka waiata. We sing this song with pride because all our school sings it and it is kind of like our school song because all our school knows it and sings it lots of the time. We then sang a new song that the teachers learnt when they went to the marae on the teacher only day. We then practiced out actions to all the songs and wrapped up. I showed community by singing with pride and listening to Matua. I showed leadership by  getting involved and committing to a group like kapa Haka. I was a role model by helping the other kids remember the actions for each song.

distinction key leadership 5

Today we talked about the house captains STILL not doing their jobs of putting up the flags and taking them down and the same with the bins. We also talked about how we have to get our excellence, but since we were going to have to get it at the end of the term we asked if we could just at least finish it at the end of the year and Mr L said okay. I showed leadership by backing the leaders who didn't want to get their badges up. I showed respect by listening to Mr L. I was a role model by telling the leaders to get their excellence because its not that hard.
