The Flag

Last week Rooms 25, 26, and 27 did some learning about the flag. We had to pair up and do a worksheet about why to keep the current flag and why we should change the flag
Here is the worksheet, click on the word "here" to access it.

For the worksheet we had to research things about the flag, and fill in the worksheet with what we found.


Lately we have been writing expositions. I have been aiming for the 9/10 year level standard and have just finished my writing. Here is the conclusion of it.

In conclusion, I think out of both of leaders, now don't get me wrong but, personally I think the best leader out of JK Rowling and Sir Edmund Hillary is JK Rowling. I think she is the better because she had a tough life leading up to Harry Potter and she never gave up, no matter what life threw at her.
Thank you

I can apply the effective strategies when researching using the Google Search Engine.

Year 9/10 - I can find, select and use a range of texts for specific learning purposes in different tasks in hand learning areas of the curriculum.

For my “Evaluating Leaders” research I have been researching about JK Rowling and Sir Edmund Hillary

During this unit I have had to use a range of strategies to find the information I needed on Google. This included:
Researching their strengths and weaknesses, and on my plan referenced where I got the information and cross-checked the information that I got.

I have achieved this goal by letting others help me when I was stuck/ in the pit and trying my best to get it complete

My next step is to set a new reading goal.

Know Square Numbers To 100 And The Matching Square Roots

This was my math goal which I have now finished. Here is my evidence, as I had to get over 80 in these two games:
The medal means that I got 100

And I got 82 which means that I have passed this goal.

Around The School (Must Do Leadership)

This week... well since Wednesday, I have been at school and in little ways, been a great leader. During the week, I was showing that I can be a good leader by getting on with my school work and trying to get my homework done as soon as possible. I was also being a good leader by wearing a hat when outside (even when I was just going to the drinking fountain) and when I forgot my hat on Thursday, at morning tea and lunch I sat underneath the shade umbrellas.

I think that the Learner Quality I used was Reslient because I felt like giving up on a lot of things this week, but I stayed strong and just got on with it!!


Peer Mediation (Leadership Can Do)

On Thursday I had Peer Mediation at morning tea, with Natalie because Hailey had something else on.We went around to the playgrounds, shade umbrellas and basically all places that students are allowed to go.
We finished up in the Kakano section and hung around there until the bell rang.
We had zero problems, which was kinda boring for us, but great for the school because it means that everyone had a good morning tea.
I think that the Learner Quality I used was Empathize because I knew that Natalie didn't want to do Peer Mediation but she did anyway because she knew I needed help and I am really grateful for that and will remember that I owe her a favour!!

Librarian (Can do Leadership)

Today at lunch I had Librarian. Honor, Alicia and I picked 3 books each and took some bean bags down to the Kakano area. Today I chose, Barbie Mermaid Tale, A Day With Daddy,  and Barbie In The Dream House.
I had two children listening to my stories but at one point a child came and listened to about a page of my story before rushing back to their friends. I'm pretty sure that the children I had round were called Jessica and Zara, who both told me that they were in Room 20.
Afterwards when coming back, Honor and I discussed how the children reacted to different books.

I think that the Learner Quality I used Resilience because the children kept jumping on me but I stayed strong and just put up with it.
