Koru Games


Koru Games Reflection

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was Netball. Our team won 6 out of our 10 games. We placed 12th out of 32 teams (which means we were in the top half).
I found the experience challenging and fun because I really enjoy playing Netball and some of the teams were really challenging. In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is Extended Abstract because I seek improvements. For Teamwork; my solo level is Relational because I participated in the competition and I can explain why.

I can work in a group with my friends.
I can work in a group with anyone in my  year level or team  


I can respond positively to the needs of others
I can reflect on how well I work with the group and seek feedback on how I can improve

Key Leadership 9

Librarian

On Wednesday I went to the Library as my job as a Librarian. We had to put away more than 50 books! Mrs Ward was fixing some books at her desk whilst Brianna and I put them away. I have 1 overdue book but I haven't finished reading it so I renewed it. I got a book out called The Castle it's a really good book. It's by Sophia Bennett. I showed the CARE values by turning up and I also showed the leadership traits by using my active thinking by extending my knowledge and trying new books.

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 Link
Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.
Link ( I could not fill out some of the boxes because I wasn't there for those parts )

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was the fact that it needed to be written in a formal fashion and everything needed to be correct e.g punctuation, spelling


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

Student Council



At Student council. We found out that the PTA are having a sausage sizzle that day, so now we need to select a new day for the Student Council Ice Cream Day for 2017. I shared my idea of having it at morning tea. But then we didn't think we had enough time to serve everyone. I showed the CARE values by always showing up and contributing to a group discussion.  I showed the Leadership trait of Active Thinker because when I came up with an idea I shared it with the group.

Leadership in the community #7

Student Council



At Student council. We decided on more information about ice cream day. We are going to be serving it in a ice cream cup and will come with a spoon. We decided on $2.50 on an ice cream . I personally thought it would be a good idea to sell them as $1 for 1 scoop $2 for 2 scoops. We decided that the Year 6's Student Council representatives should make an order form on a Google doc. They will go around the classes and ask who will buy it and what flavor. I showed the CARE values by always showing up and contributing to a group discussion.  I showed the Leadership trait of Active Thinker because when I came up with an idea I shared it with the group.
