Week 2 Reflection

This week I enjoyed cross country training because it was really fun running and getting all muddy! The most amount of laps I did was 2.

I learnt how to write a poem and use my feelings.

Term 2 Evaluations

For maths, I think I need to work more on fractions, decimals and percentages. I don’t understand how to change most decimals into fractions and vice versa. I would like to try doing statistics, and graphing, collecting information and turning it into a graph. Next term I am looking forward to starting Algebra, because It’s some new learning I’ve never done!

One of my goals for writing is to use more figuragtive language (such as similes, metaphors and personification.) I have been trying really hard on it, and hopefully I can complete that goal next term. I would like to learn some more styles of writing, and maybe even write our own narratives. Next term I am looking forward to writing some more, and make my writing even more interesting!

Next term, I need to manage my time more, with-out rushing! A-lot of times I leave things to the last minute, or muck around and end-up having to rush my work. If I have TV central or something like that, I need to finish my work at home so I can catch up. Next term I am looking forward to reading more books!

The arts
I think I am very confident in drama, singing and dance. Much more than I used to. This term I have succeed in leading the class in dance, and being a “main character” in drama. Next term hopefully we can do more drama because I love it and it really gives me confidence!

Visual Art
Last term I didn’t finish my art on time, so when I’m doing art this term, I have to really manage my time well, take my time, don’t rush and try to get things finished on time! Hopefully I get a chance next term to do more art and actually finish it on time!!

We did AFL this term. When we played games on Friday, I think I could of been more involved with the game. I have good sportsmanship, but I need to call for the ball more often and “hold” other players.

Weekly Reflection week 1 Term 3

This week I learnt about poems, what they are and how to write some.
Next week I am looking forward to.... Helping Amber with reading, peer mediator duties, office monitor duties and starting cross country training :)

Term 2 Evaluation


This term, along with the other Pukeko Post leader, Sophie.M, and Courtney, Mitchell and lots of other people, I was part of the Central TV Crew. My job was to find stories around Ngatea Primary School, write them into a script, film it and do voice overs for it. Each week, our school has a “NPS news” episode, and our stories go into those episodes. It is great fun, seeing our work on TV every week, and sometimes our face! This job also helps me with improving my writing, because I have learnt a new technique!

What I enjoyed
I really enjoyed Tech this term because I was in cooking class, and I love cooking! Some of the things we made were disgusting, but it was still super fun making it! Other things, such as Fasta Pasta and Fairy Cupcakes were absolutely delicious! All term I had so much fun learning new ways of cooking, tasting and describing my food. I wonder what Tech class I will be in next term?

New experince
A new experience for me this term would be working for TV central. I learnt all about filming and script writing which I never knew about or ever experienced before! I really enjoy it though, not only because it’s something new, but because I love filming and being around the camera. I also love writing so this job has been so cool for me!

Winter sports
I have played Netball for Ngatea 2 this season. My main positions are WA and sometimes GS or GA. It’s really fun playing because I haven’t played netball at all while I’ve been overseas, and it has been fun going to practises and playing on a saturday morning, because I love playing netball!
