Koro Games 2015 😊

Over the  last 3 days I competed in Koru games as part the Oakland's touch B team against several different schools across the South Island such as South New Brighten and Kaikori Valley. I really enjoyed playing hard all 7 of my games thinking back to the beginning of the year I didn't enjoy touch or had good catching ability I improved on my catching and enthusiasm in general. Something I will remember is being really close to scoring 3 goals my next step is to actually get one.

is a section of my writing where I used my goal...

Have you ever been yelled at for not wearing the correct uniform in class? Doesn't it seem unfair that your teachers  go around wearing converse and make-up and you looking like Decembers elf? Have you ever had to coupe through your mom moaning about how expensive everything is at a uniform shop? Have you ever struggled to concentrate on your school work because you feel like spiders are crawling through your body thanks to an itchy uniform?!

I have shown my goal by highlighting in blue what words I spelled wrong.

Leadership Evidence (Distinction)

PALS-Today @ lunchtime I did PALS with Jasmine since Makayla was at scratch, we grabbed our vests then found Mrs Mcloud for some pozzies and then headed out to behind the senior playground we decided to do a game of predator. We didn't have to bother going round looking for people to play because when we were just setting up a huge group of year 5's or year 6's or both came  and asked what we were playing when we said what we were playing they happily joined in. I started of being the person counting they were very violent with the touch but didn't react too much, we had to restart a couple of times because of misunderstanding's of the rules, but that was okay. I showed leadership by proactively finding a fill-in and of course showing up. Overall it was very difficult keeping control of such huge and annoyingly load bunch and it wasn't the fairest of games their was a a lot of rule misunderstanding and arguments so it wasn't a blast.

Leadership Evidence (Distintion)

Getting involved in school events (Choir Rehearsal)-Today I got involved in rehearsing for the festival choir. We had an about a quarter of an hour bus ride to Avonhead school the buses actually had seatbelts, foot resters, curtains and slots to put books and things in. When we got there was like 20 other schools there we practiced in a massive hall there was quick introduction by the head then we got straight into singing starting from god of nations to slice of heaven to finish of we had long lectures of each 11 or 10 songs we had variety of different teachers through the songs I learned a whole load of new singing strategies that helped my voice get stronger. Overall it was actually fun and I showed leadership by turning up and giving 100%.              

Leadership Evidence (Distintion)

Librarian-Today I almost forgot about librarian! But just in time I got reminded. I had to stack to a whole load of books from all categories. Then make sure none of the little kids books were in the right place. To be brutally honest IT WAS REALLY REALLY BORING!!

Leadership Evidence (Distintion)

Peer Mediation-Today I came three minutes early to peer mediation. I quickly got Emma then we headed of to the junior area. At the start we we filled with problems layed in front of us we ended having split up and solve problems to be honest we rushed through a few. Mollyanne eventully joined us so we were a fill group for once. We properly solved a problem about two boys who where one of them had accidently or purposely (I don't even know!) hit him. We solved the problem by getting both of the boys to aplogise. Also the exact same boy came with a similar sitiualation with another boy same soulution of corse :')  

I can apply some criteria to evaluate texts.

The wrinkled man pokes a finger in to the slew of guts strewn across the parched ground. The day-dead rabbit that had previously contained them lies on its side three feet away facing east.
A drag of the finger further displaces the ropes of intestine. Cocking his head the man lifts the finger to his lips and tastes. He hops from foot to foot and rolls his eyes in rapture.
Several minutes pass before his eyes drop and regain their focus. With a nod he creaks to his feet and turns to face the silent, expectant crowd.
“Rain. Two Days.”

Cell biology (formerly cytology, from the Greek κυτος, kytos, "contain") is a branch of biology that studies cells – their physiological properties, their structure, the organelles they contain, interactions with their environment, their life cycle, division, death and cell function. This is done both on a microscopic and molecular level. Cell biology research encompasses both the great diversity of single-celled organisms like bacteria and protozoa, as well as the many specialized cells in multicellular organisms such as humans, plants, and sponges.
