Today I got an email from Val asking if we had finished our sketches for the chorus box. I showed Mr. Ladbrook and he said we will have a meeting later in the week to figure this out.

The care values I showed today were:

Community: Collaborate, connect.
Active Thinking: Seek help and act, ask questions.
Respect: Communicate.
Excellence: Be self aware, be resilient.

Today I put out a few flags as part of my job and noticed the annoying incident of 'other' people (not house captians) putting out the flags instead of us is better and we still have jobs to do in the morning/afternoon. We've decided that after the Quiz Night for adults and parents, we will plan for what to do next on the chorus box and go on from there. 
The care vales I showed today were:
Respect: Communication and Empathy 
Excellence: Be self aware, Be resilient
Community: Collaborate
Active Thinking: Ask Questions

Letter Writing

Letter Writing

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written My draft letter

Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done:

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was making the letter seem very formal because I have never really written a formal letter to someone important before.

My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

Not much to write about this week but i'll do my best...
Today I looked miraculously at the chorus box ideas that were in the google classroom, and found that most people had done what they were supposed to do, and had a few ideas for what to put on the chorus box. 
This is including:
  • Having our names/our signatures on the outer rim of the box.
  • Putting flowers/beautiful nature designs because this is New Zealand.
  • Making it very colourful.
  • and Having the Oaklands logo on top.

These are all very good ideas so I think the chorus box will look smashing! Also, aside from the chorus box, I have been doing the flags and bins most days but other people that aren't house captains have been doing it too! Which sometimes leaves me with nothing to do when I get to school. So I cannot tick off my name saying I did the flags today which I think is just a little problem we might want to look into.

Anyway, the care values I showed today were: Community, collaborate. Active Thinking, Be curious. Respect, Communicate. and Excellence, be resilient.

Thanks for Reading.  :)

HLC #1  Create a silent movie production!                    (Design your own challenge)

Tracy, Alex, Katie and I are going to make a silent movie production! (which is part of what we do every Wednesday for drama) Here is a link to our drafted script: Drama production.

We used nicknames for ourselves because we thought that would bring some fun to the document we made and for the people who read it!

The drama session is done and it went really well! :D
