Term 3 Reflection

Learning Journal

Being a successful learner involves you being reflective about the learning process. It is about you identifying your strengths, weaknesses and areas you would like to improve in. Reflection just does not happen at the end of a task, it can be throughout a task.

I would now like you to take some time to answer these questions:

1. Are you pleased with how this term has gone for you? No because I have got into trouble many time.

2. What have you learnt this term? I have learnt about the olympics like about when it start and about Zeus and the rest.

3. What have you found easy this term? What I have found easy this term is my shapes because it was 3D and 2D.

4. What have you found tricky / difficult this term? What I have found tricky and difficult this term was writing because I am in the second to lowest group.

5. Who  / what has helped you with your learning this term? The ones that help me the most was my teacher and my classmates

6. What could you change with your learning for next term? I could learn to listen to the instructions my teacher gives me when I am on the mat.

7. What are your next learning steps to make you a successful learner for next term? To not mark around in the classroom and get straight on to my work and do not get distracted.

Kids for Kids Concert

On a beautiful sunny day, Monday 17th of September 2012, we had the Kid’s for Kid’s Concert at the TelstraClear in Manukau. We had to go in the morning and put our lunch in the red box and take our bag and hang it up in the corridor way. We all went to the front of the office and we waited there for the bus to come. Once the bus came Miss G told us to go inside and find a seat to sit down. We all sat down and some people were not here so we waited then people started to come after five minutes we got onto the bus. When we were about to go we saw Justin walking on the path way then Miss G told the bus driver to stop for a second then Miss G got out of the bus and told Justin to run. Once justin got on we went, but then we realized on the way that the two twins were not on the bus so we thought that they were not going to come so we just went.

When we got there we were surprised that the two twins were there. We went inside the humongous theater and there were windows all over the place where you walk into. We got to take a seat but we had to put the seat down before we got to sat down and it was darker than outside. When we got on stage it was bright because all the lights went on and it was shining down on us.

When Suzanne Prentice walked in we all looked at her but I did not know her that well, the only thing that I knew was that she had a beautiful voice. Some of the people in my class already knew her from other Kids for Kids Concerts. She came and said “good morning children” and we said “good morning” back to her.

There were ten schools that were there. We started to sing the muppet show theme song, we were the ones that started it off. When we got to go to morning tea we all went back to our seat and we got our morning tea and ate it and some of us got to go to the toilet when we wanted to. When we came back went back on stage we continued singing our songs. We finally got up to the final song which was called talk to the animal’s and I was pleased it was finished because I was quite tired.

X Country

On a sunny Friday 24 August, X Country was set to happen at St Pius X Catholic School.

We all got changed into our clothes that we were going to run in and we got our water bottles and the whole school came and lined up on the courts, we sat in our ages.

We all watched the juniors run their course around the school and we were all cheering. The parents were cheering as well.The juniors all came back puffed out after their races.

When the juniors finished their course it was the seniors turn. We did not run around the school we ran around the streets. It started with the 13 year olds and also Mr Coakley ran. After when the 13 year olds took off the 12 year olds came up, then it kept on going on until it came up to the 10 year olds turn.

When I went to the line up where we had to start the race my feet were shaking and I was nervous. First we got to take a picture then we stood in line with the boys going first. Miss G said “on your mark, get set, go!” we all started off at a slow pace, we were jogging. We were running with our drink bottles and drinking it. We had to go around the course, some teachers were standing around the course with flags telling us the direction we had to go in. After that I had a pain on my hip then I knew it was a stitch. When I came up to the finish line I knew I  could not give up yet, so I ran around the court to the finish line and sat down in my age group. You then had to go to Mrs William if you came 1st, 2nd or 3rd and you would get a certificate.

I came 5th but I still felt proud of myself because I finished the race.
