Student Leaders #6

Student Leaders #6                        23/5/2017

There is a new roster for the flags and bins job (we discussed this at the meeting at morning tea yesterday). Every even week I am on in the mornings for flags and bins, along with Tracy, Sophie, Natasha and myself. Then on the even weeks the other half of the house captains (Emily, Cormac, Alex and Amelia) do the afternoon bins. And to make it all fair we swap on the odd weeks... (we do the afternoon stuff on an odd week and the others do the mornings on an odd week).

Flags and bins Job

                 Flags and bins Job             22/5/2017 

 I came to school in the morning and found out the flags and bins hadn't been done; I'm not on in the morning so I wanted to know what was up. It turned out that someone who does it in the morning, wasn't here today, probably sick, and the others in the morning had "forgotten" or something. So Mr. Ladbrook called all the house captains together and we talked about how no one had done them. He told us we all had to go do them NOW, so we did. It was very cold today so I didn't really want to go outside but I did anyway. 

I went with Tracy who had just got to school and hadn't even done the roll yet. I did two of the flags (Active Thinking and Excellence) and as I was doing them I realized that there are only 3 morning people and 5 afternoon people because someone switched to afternoon which meant it was unbalanced so we're going to sort this out today in our Student Leader meeting at morning tea.



Cross country

                        Cross country                17/5/2017

Oaklands School journeyed to Westlake park to begin their cross country. Our bags were all packed; lunch, drink bottle, jacket etc. The House Captains (us), were all carrying cricket bats for the games are are going to play with the other year levels. Before we went down in the long line  of kauri students we spread ourselves down it to act as parent helpers because there weren't enough. I'm looking forward to running in the cross country with all my friends! 

When we got there it was very cold and there was a slight wind. We (all the house captains) split off the group and started unpacking and getting ready for their games. The rest of the school arrived and we all went back to sit in the area we were supposed to sit in (the athletes zone)!

The first runners up were the year 4's! While the year 6's went to go play their game with the other House Captains. After a while of wandering around the place, I did my game with the year 7/8's and then we got ready for our run! I was waiting for a friend to get out of the bathroom and we almost missed the start because they had already lined up and were all ready to go in their lines... we got there just before the first of the year 7/8's went off (the year 7 girls). The year sevens went, then shortly after the year 7 boys, then us, finally the year 8 boys after that. 

We were all off running, I didn't go full speed because I was savoring my energy for later on in the race. I ran with my friends; we said we would all run together but if someone stops running and walks then we could just keep going on because we didn't want to wait for our friends. :P


This is Part 1,

The care values we all showed were all of them because that is what we were supposed to do!

Student Leaders #5

                       Student leaders #5       11/5/2017

We have been told to go into google classroom to put a picture/video/some text about the city council and what they do. I've been planning to take a picture of the park across the street from my house because the city council comes once a month to mow the grass there. I've also seen them dealing with a job over there that was about someone driving all over the grass there in a vehicle at night. I know this because I went there the next morning and saw the tyre tracks and a city council truck doing stuff there. 
I will probably take the picture after school.
The care values I will show at the park should be all of them. :)

Here are the 3 screenshots to my IXL activities:







My next step is... To use this knowledge to help me solve a variety of different maths problems.

Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots.

Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots.



In Maths we have been learning:
Square numbers to 100 and their matching square roots.

This is part of our Number Knowledge.
It is important to just know these as we can use this knowledge in other areas of maths.




Here are the IXL screenshots that show evidence of my learning.  



Here is an image of my Square Root Chart that can be found in my Maths book.


My next  step in Maths is to use this new knowledge to help me solve problems in a variety of other areas of Maths.


Student Leaders #3

Student Leaders #3                       11/4/2017

We had a meeting to decide who has done their role properly. I, for one, had; which meant I could play the game with the others who had done their role properly that term. All the student leaders got to, I forgot which game we played but i remember it being fun. Overall this week has been pretty good. The care values i showed in and out of the game were community (connecting and collaborating), Active thinking (questioning "How do we play this game then?"), respect (communicating), and excellence (being resilient).
