Today was a leadership meeting, we met when everyone else in the class was eating so we didn't miss out on lunch which is good! We mostly talked about what we are going to do for the mural and also how we have to be up to a certain amount of blog posts to do the game at the end of the term for the people who have done their leadership role well. The people who have done it, got to go (like me) but the others had to stay and show Mr Ladbrook how many they had done. I showed community by giving my opinion bout the mural. I showed leadership by doing all of my blog posts so it was less work for Mr Ladbrook. I was a role model by doing all the work I needed to do, since i'm a leader.
Today all the student leaders got called into a meeting mostly about the house captains and the follow up from when we went to visit the city council and what we can do to help them with the environment. We decided as a group to make a mural, we need to wait until the lady in charge reply's before we know what to draw and create. The house captains got told to keep doing what were doing n terms of doing the bins and flags because we are doing well. I showed excellence by giving ideas for what we could do for the mural. I showed leadership by turning up and doing my jobs like the flags and bins. I was a role model by listening to Mr Ladbrook when he was talking.
Today was kapa haka. Firstly we went to the hall and sat in our spots in our lines for the performances, but then Mrs Baker realized there were heaps of gaps in the lines so we re organised all the spots again and we had to try and remember them for the next weeks so we wouldn't have to ask and annoy the teachers. So the teachers took a photo of us in our lines so they could tell us where we sit if we asked the next week. Next we went through our whole list of songs and fixed things we needed working on. I showed excellence by trying to remember my spot so I didn't annoy the teachers. I showed leadership by turning up to kapa haka. I was a role model by showing people where to sit and once I was assigned a spot I waited quietly for the other people to get a spot.

I can evaluate writers’ purposes and consider how they have used structure and language to suit these purposes. (Eg: I can make decisions about why the writer has written a piece of writing and how they have used particular structures and words to meet the purpose.
This is what we had to do for our blog post.
