End of Year Reflection

This year I learned how to manage my time and organise my time.  An important decision made this year is not sitting by my friends on the mat.  One goal I accomplished this year is that I moved up a level in reading.  This year I tried to be a better person by helping people if the are stuck.  My favourite memory from this year was when Drifto (Mrs Melville puppy)  peed on Micah's leg.  The funniest thing that happened this year was when Mrs Melville went" I saw Dan carter"

The Weekend

Last week on Saturday I went to the second trail for my counties touch.  The coches were looking for skills and talking. We meet at east tamikia rugby club

 First the coches were looking for how fast you were. We got to get bibs and 2 of my friends made it and we were in the same team.  The coches told us to line up behind the cones and line up in our bib colors and there were some other cones.  Then one of our players when and line up behind the other cone and we did sprints and when they high five each other we got to run as fast as usain bolt.

After that they test our running and  passing with the ball skills.  They were looking for targets and passing to there target.  Then they were looking to pass in front not behind.I went good but I did not hit the target all the time and my pass wernt hard but the still catch it. They also were looking for hard pass so it can get to there target and it was not that far.It was so easy.

Then they were looking for the touches.  One person had to come out and just stand there and when the other person had to touch them well the other person just stands there. I went good and I got it right because one of them told me by myself.

Overall I thought that I went good and the mannerger would give the parents a text and see if you made it or not

Term 3 Week 6

We did youth town on Tuesday and we learnt how to play HOCKEY.We used field hockey sticks.  It was hard to hit the ball and get it back because I don't now how to play hockey but when Brad, Craig and  Don told me what to do I got the hang of it. We did youth town to practices hockey. It was very fun and hard also.
First Don told us to sit behind the hockey stick and he told us to put up our weak hand and put it at the top of the hockey stick and then he told us to put up our hand that we write with and put our hand down on the stick.Next Don and Brad told us to dribble the ball and when he called 1!!! We had to go and do thumbs up and thumbs down and thumbs up is when the bottom of the hockey stick is up and thumbs down means the end of the hockey stick is facing down and when he could 2 we had to stop and do a 360 around the ball and when he says 3 we had to stop and face forward and hit the ball between your legs 5 times.After that we played a game and we had to dribble the tennis ball and we have to try and hit the other person ball out of the square and the last person who is still in the square is the... WINNER. We played another 2 times. Finally we ended with a clap and don said 1 2 3 CLAP so we went 1 2 3 CLAP and that is the end of the awesome youth town.It was hard and easy. I thought it was going to be tricky because I have never played hockey before.

Term 2 Week 9 Recount

last Friday our school rugby team vs the star of the sea.  We played on our school revives to repentance our school.

First we trained and got dress into our rugby cloth.When we did training we did bear crawling, rucking and high knees and but kicks.

Next we kick it off and then the game started playing.They got the ball first and they got the first try so they got the kick over.

Then the next half we scored a try.I kick the ball over the goal post but we did'ent have a tee so i dropped  goaded it.

Finally the game was over and we lost but the score was 7-35 but I still had very fun at our 2nd game.

Overall, I thought that we have to work on our tackling, rucking, our fords have to blow over more and our backs have to pass and look for space.

My favorite part was when we scored a try and when I kick the goal over the goal post

I'm looking ford to the next game and hope we win.

Last week room 28 went out in the car park to learn how to ride a bike.  We where doing bike skills.  WE ride a BMX bike and who ever knows you can ride a bike they could stand up and ride.  The weather was alright but it started to rain.

First we put our helmet on and then we had to make shore that we where safe, so first when we put our helmet on we put two fingers at the bottom of the strap and make shore that they fit.  Then we tide it up with this thing that if you want to tie it up you cant turn in to the right side and if you want to lose it you can turn it to the left side and then you have to wiggle your head and see if it's shaking and if it is you have to tighten it of if it's not shaking your are alright.

Then we had to get our bikes, so if you want a partner you can but that means that you have to share and you doesn't want to share they can have there on bike.  So then we started to ride our bikes and you called stand up and ride our you can sit down and ride.  Then the person that shared with a bike and they had a turn they have to pass it on to the next person and if you have our on bike you just keep going.

After that we doped our bikes and we had to put the chain up in the air.  Then we are FINISH

When I did bike skills it was very cool !!!!!!!

Place Value

video

I was learning to read numbers up to one thousand to say which is bigger or smaller.

The thing that helped me most was:
- remembering to look at the left to see if the digits are bigger
- using streets and houses to break up bigger numbers
- seeing patterns in the numbers that don’t change when they get bigger
- practising on Mathletics

My next step is to:
- try the same activity suing bigger numbers
- use this information to move problems
