Taonga Time

Every Friday the Years 7 and 8 have Taonga time. Taonga means treasure in the Maori language. We have this because it gives us an opportunity to learn more subjects with different teachers.

In Taonga time we have a number of different groups such as Kapa haka, sport, music, team building, art, science and technology. The group I am in is Kapa Haka with the fantastic teacher Ms T in kapa Haka we learn songs and mihi.

I’m glad we have Taonga time because we do things we really enjoy. That’s why we always want it to be Friday so its Taonga time.

Thursday Netball with Emma

Every Thursday Room’s 20 & 22 go out for netball sessions in the morning and afternoon to help with our netball skills. Our instructor Emma is from the Auckland Netball association.

When we First start we had to do 2 laps around the court and do some dynamic stretches we did high knees, butt kicks and the grape vine. The First thing Emma told us to do was to get into pairs then she taught us some passing skills, the first pass was a chest pass then the fly pass and the last one was the bounce pass.

Our last skill She taught us was stepping in netball, you’re not aloud to step. We had to go behind the yellow line with our partner on the other side with a ball. The person without the ball had to run across the yellow line and take to steps before getting the ball.

To end our sessions we played a game of corner ball. The aim of the game was to get the ball to your team mate in the corner surrounded by cones.

My Term 1 Refections

One of the Subjects I was pleased about last term was my Reading Results . In my report I received Excellence in my work habits, behaviour and academic progress. I feel proud of myself because I got Excellence !

One of the subjects I would like too improve on this term is my writing. In my report I got Below expectations so I feel disappointed about myself. This term I am also going to work harder and stay focused if I do this I will get better results in my writing.

I feel good about last term because I improved in my behaviour during class. My highlight of last term was being in the highest math’s class and in the highest reading group.

Last term Room22 had to do a D.L.O and these are my results:
