Kapa Haka leadership #6

On Friday Kapa Haka was cancelled because of the year 4 sleepover, I am going to say what I have learned and enjoyed during Kapa Haka this year. I learned that sometimes if you laugh or smile during the Haka it's disrespectful for the group. I have enjoyed going to the cultural festival because we performed our songs and represented the school. I showed active thinking by listening to the speaker and/or performers. I showed leadership by showing the kids where to stand. I was being a role model by not messing around and doing the practices for the performance.

Peer mediation can do #5

On Wednesday I had my duty for peer mediation. Elizabeth couldn't do it so I had to ask someone else to because she forgot, I asked Charlotte L, so we went around the little kids playground and there was no problems at all. Then we went around the field and there was a few injuries, so we had to take them to a teacher. I showed respect by not ignoring the kids who were hurt. I showed leadership by turning up to my job and remembering the date it was. I was being a role model by helping out and asking some kids if they were alright.

Technology Must Do #1

Today was the first rotation on woodwork for me. We started with the rules, such as no talking when the teacher is talking...Next we made the plans of what we wanted to make, I decided to make a tray for my family because we don't have a tray and it would come in handy. Then we had to draw our design from the front, the side, the top and a 3D drawing, and this is just some of the stuff we did. I showed respect by following the rules the class made at the start. I showed leadership by helping the people who didn't know how to draw a 3D design. I was a role model by contributing to the class discussion.

Kapa Haka Leadership Can Do #4

On Friday the kapa haka group meet together in the hall, like every other Friday. We practiced through the performance we are going to do on the gala and the celebration of learning assembly. I showed respect by cooperating when the teachers wanted us to line up. I showed leadership by showing the kids where to go in the line. I was being a role model to the other kids by listening to the instructions the teachers were telling us and teaching the kids the dance they didn't know.

This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.

Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:

  • The speaker can kick people out if they talk over him.
  • Democracy is better than dictatorship.
  • The clerk is the person the speaker looks for if he forgets/dos not know a law.

Here is the link to my compare and contrast map explaining the difference between democracy and dictatorship.
