Senior Choir

On Friday I had to get to school at 8:30am because I had senior choir at 8:45am.  Once I got to school I unpacked my bag and then I got my music book and headed to the music room.  Once half of the choir was there we started our warm ups.  Next Miss Harris said that we would sing our new song for a warm up.  After that Miss Harris asked us what songs we don't know that well because the music festival is next week.  The first song that we sang was Slice of Heaven, next we sang was the long white sails and then America child.  The last song that we sang was ring of fire.  After that we did the roll and then it was 9:30 so choir had to finish because the yr 5/6's had Te Reo.

Dance week 1 term 4

On Friday we had our first dance session.  First we found out our dance partners but the teacher played a prank on us and said that they would use the name generator and do the partners right there.  After they had called out about 10 names they said that they were not our partners and they had already done them.  After all the partners were read out the year 8's did the rock and roll real to show the year 7's how to do it.  Next we found our partners and did the dance 3 times.  After that we learnt the steps to the waltz.

P.A.L.S Distinction evidence #4

On Friday I had P.A.L.S at lunch time.  When I turned up there was Sam L, Samara and Jonathan asked if he could help so I let him.  All of us made 1 big group because it is to hard with 2 people.  The activity that we did was skipping because it was a sunny day and the juniors like skipping.  Jonathan and I did a long rope and the 2 girls did single rope.  After a while Monique came and helped us.  After that the girls did a long rope because we had to many people waiting and not everyone was getting a turn.  At 1:20 we slowly put the ropes back that weren't getting used and by the time we had done that the bell rang so we went back to class.  I showed leadership by being at the right place at the right time to do my duty.

Integrated learning (Wellington)

On Wednesdays we have an interchange with the girls class.  The topic is about Wellington.  There are 4 groups and we rotate every 3 weeks.  At the moment I am doing Parliament.  Today we learnt about the roles and how the people do the roles like speaker, labour leader etc.  When the year 8's go to Wellington they get to go to Parliament and if there is a meeting on they get to watch it and if there isn't they get to walk through the meeting room.  My next step is to ask more questions.

Senior librarian Distinction evidence #4

On Tuesday I had library duty. Once the bell rang I headed over to the library but it was locked so I waited outside for Mrs Ward. She was a little late back as she got held up doing the dishes in the staff room as she was on dish duty.  Once we got inside I looked over at the trolley and there was so many books to put away so I got to work.  As soon as I had started Hannah and Victor came and I told them that there was a lot of books to put away.  After all the books were put away I sat down at the issueing desk because someone wanted to get a book out.  For the rest of lunch I sat at the issueing desk and Hannah and Victor took turns.  I showed leadership by being at the right place at the right time to do my library duty.
