Biscuits- Creator

For reading, Sophie.M and I were creator for our book- End of the Alphabet. So we made letters out of biscuits. They didn't exactly look like how we imagined them but they were still tasty!!

Weekly Reflection Week 3 Term 1

                                            This Week I enjoyed...
Reading, because we are starting our lit circle books, end of the alphabet. Sophie.M and I are creator, for our roles. We are going to make alphabet biscuits, and decorate them, then make the Y stand out. We will share the biscuits with the rest of our group! I think it's a really great idea! Plus, our book is really cool!

I am proud of.....
Finishing my movie for digital design. Kennidy, Jacob, Aydan, Robert and I were in a group. We made a movie called Star Boys, and it is about bullying. I am proud of this one scene, where Aydan (the nerd) is lying on the ground after being bullied, and there is sad music in the background, with a heart thump. It looks really cool!

Next week I am looking forward to....
Making and sharing our biscuits to our lit circle group!
I am also looking forward to starting and rehearsing our J-Rock dance for our audition. Charlotte, Sophie.M, Kennidy, Zoe Sam.M, Isaac and I are in a group.
I need to work on...
Trying to answer every question in my MDR and AWS.

Leadership positions

Last week on Friday, the teachers announced the leadership positions. I was lucky enough to become the Academic leader, and I am also on the Assembly Team, which is both of the positions that I wanted! I am very proud of myself for getting these responsibility, and I can't wait to start my position!

My Pangram

This is my pangram that I made. A pangram is a sentence that contains every letter of the alphabet in it.

A very friendly girl named Jazz quickly ate some yogurt while anxiously waiting for her bacon and ham pie.

This is ME

This is my This is ME poem, I made the photo effects on Be Funky.

Term 1 Week 2 reflection

This week I enjoyed...
Technology. Kennidy and I are doing digital design with Mr O'Neill. We worked on continuity- filming from lots of different angles to make the film flow.  

I am proud of....
My This Is Me poem. I think mine is unique and original, and I am proud of finishing the writing in time. 

Next week I am looking forward to...
Technology again, so we can edit our little films, also working on the Impact Project more, I am doing Food Technology.

What I want to work on this year..

I want to work on my writing this year. Making it longer and descriptive, and using lots of Figurative language in it, so I can make it more exciting to read.

I hope this year I will learn heaps more, to prepare myself for Collage next year!

What I am looking forward to this year...

This year I am looking forward to....

Taupo Camp! I love camp every-year, so I can't wait to go to Taupo!!
Also, all of the year 8 privileges, like the year 8 dinner, water fight and rainbows end.

And.... I can't wait to find out the leadership positions, and hopefully I get one!

My Summer Highlight

Our feet blistered in the scorching sand as we walked down to the water, no ran down, with our Christmas present- the Explorer 300 inflatable boat! My sister Kate and my cousin Liam were holding the front and back, and my other cousin Zara and I were holding the sides. We got to the water's edge, stripped down to our togs, and chucked the Explorer 300 into the water.
"Shotgun first!" I yelled.
"3 in the boat, Sophie!" My sister said.
"We can fit 4!" Zara called.
So we all jumped into the boat, and attempted to paddle out to sea. Yes, I said attempted. It didn't exactly work, we ended up rowing around in circles! We gave up on that idea, and ended up playing a game where one person had to stand up in the boat, and everyone else rocked it around until they fell out into the murky water!
Drenched, muddy, sandy and exhausted, we retired back home where we relaxed outside under the beautiful sunset at Port Waikato beach.
Now my cousins bags are packed, and they are ready to head off back to Australia, where we won't see them until the next Christmas...
