kapa haka excellence #10 2017

Today at kapa haka we firstly went into the hall foyer and took of our shoes and put them on the chair. Next we went into the hall and lined up into our performance lines and started off singing ka waiata. After that we sang a new song and found out we need four kaia to talk during the song saying stuff like "hello this is our second song" and stuff but in Maori. Natasha and I put our hands up and now we sing in the song solo! I showed respect by listening to Matua rihari.  I showed leadership by getting involved and being the new kaia.

koru games

Koru Games Reflection
In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was vollyball
Our team won 6 games and lost 3 but we worked really well as a team and kept the motivation going throughout the whole three days overall we go 6th out of 24 teams.
I found the experience to be very fun and enjoyable because we made a lot of good memories and had some good banter with some of the other schools
In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is relational because I respond positively to the needs of others
For Teamwork; my solo level is relational because participate and take responsibility in a team and explain my choices in terms of team outcomes.

Individuals and groups I need help to work in a group (with teachers or other students

formal letter

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.

Here is a link to our online Modelling book. This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was figuring out where to start and trying to keep the letter going so that its as long as its meant to be.

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

kapa haka excellence #9 2017

Today at kapa haka we started off by singing aotearoa after that we sang tai tapu, I think we sang this quite well but we could have sang it better. After that we sang ka waiata we sang this really well. After that we sang hallelujah we sing this song very well and I like this song a lot. Then we sang the song that we learnt a few weeks ago and we also practised the actions, I think we are doing really well at this song and I like it a lot.

 I showed leadership by singing with pride.

I showed respect by listening to what the teachers have to say.
For this home learning challenge I had to research an important person in new zealand history And I chose kate sheppard here is a google slide on her.
