Geometry


This week we have been learning about geometry. Geometry is the study of shapes, sizes and position of 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional figures.

We've learnt how to make perfect circles using compasses. Compasses are really useful and they come in handy in a lot of things for example if you needed to draw a face you could use the compass. Some of us have good spatial awareness that's why our circles look great like mine.

Geometry are one of my strengths. I really enjoyed it.

Taonga Time


Every Friday the year 7&8 students have a thing called Taonga Time. It is a time of learning about different passions of our teachers. If you don’t know what ‘Taonga’ means well it means treasure”.


We have different teachers for each group. Mr Harris takes science, Ms Vaafusuaga takes sports, Mrs Telea takes ICT, Mrs Lagitupu takes art, Mr Barks does team buildings, Mrs Nua does te reo maori, Mr J (the tall one) takes music and Miss T takes the kapa haka group. The group I’m in is Mr Barks .

Taonga time is a really special time for me because I get to spend a lot time with different teachers then my own.

Our First Netball Session



On Thursday the 5th of May we had a netball session with Emma. She is a helper from the Auckland netball courts. When we got to the hard courts Emma was waiting there. It looked like she was ready to teach us some super netball skills.

First we learnt some dynamic stretches like high knee’s, but flicks and the great vine. I already knew those stretches because those we’re some of the stretches we would do before our netball game.

After we learnt some skills we had a game of corner ball. we we’re split in to two mixed groups boys and girls. Our game was really fun it went really well . It was similar to netball but instead of a hoop there we’re cones.

I really enjoyed our netball session. I am really excited for our next netball session.

Creativity

In Room 22 we have been learning about creativity. ‘Do you know what creativity means?’ if you don’t well now is your chance. Creativity is the ability to create new things with your own imagination. Creativity is a thinking skill. One of our tasks was to create our name using our own design. This is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

My Term 1 Reflection

One of the things I was pleased with last term was my art work. In my report I received excellence for habits, behaviour and academic progress I also obtained 12/12 in my rubric. It made me love art and want to do it more.

The subject that I was struggling on last term the most was writing. I want to improve on writing by not being distracted with the things on my netbook and to not muck around. In my report I received a below expectations for academic. I was kind of pleased because now I know what to work on.


Last term I felt that it went alright because there were some ups and some downs. The thing that I’m working on his term is to not be distracted by my friends or any thing else.

These are my DLO results:
