Clay Sculpture Reflection

In Room 14 we have been focusing on this terms focus creative explorers. so we got an ice-cream container with our name on it. we got a lump of clay inside of it. The name of my clay sculpture is called the roaring lion. Te message that I want to give the viewer is that lions always and watch out they might eat you!!! So be careful. what I have I have enjoyed working with the clay so far is making the pinch pots and starting to make our clay sculptures. The trickiest part of working with clay is putting everything together and wedging the clay.

Our big idea for this term was collaboration. My favourite collaboration activity that we did this term was the straws and tape one. Mrs Gunn gave us half a pack of straws and two rolls of cellotape and two pairs of scissors. Then we had to work together as a team and try and make something out of the straw and tape. It was really hard but  easy when we worked as a team. I enjoyed this activity the most because we worked together as a team most of the time but we had a few arguments during the activity that we were doing. I think the police officer was the best role because she made sure that the group stayed on task and got everything that we needed and we didn't argue at all times. The most difficult role that I thought would of been the CIA Agent because all he did was come back and told us that another was doing the same idea as us.

Team building at Karapiro

On Tuesday we went to Karapiro and did some team building challenges as a team. We did these challenges so we could learn how to work together as a team. The kayaking was the hardest because we got to learn how to kayak and play some fun games. Archery was a fun activity because when I would try to aim at the target and than when I let the arrow go it would always miss the target. The adult that helped me was Raywin because she helped me at archery and how to aim properly. I learnt how to work as a team. The challenges that my group faced were trying not slow down and to carry on with the challenge that we were facing.

End of year reflection

My favourite thing from this year is when we made our habitat boxes. The most challenging thing this year was when we did our name art. Now I tell you that was really challenging for me. My goal for 2016 is to not get distracted during subjects and get my work done so I do not have to stay in at lunch time to finish it.

Dream job competition

You had to draw a picture about your dream job or you could write about your dream job, competition on the whole page. My dream job would be a zookeeper and I would also like to be a boss too.

My favourite sport is long jump because you can get your first score and try and beat it the next time you run/jump. My goal for athletics is to have lots of energy before my next sport and to drink lots and lots of water so I have a lot of energy.

Swimming Pool

A few weeks ago we were talking about if the pool should stay or be demolished. I think the school should be kept. So Vardon School can learn how to swim and the safe ways to save your selves. When you are starting to drown in the ocean or the sea then you know how to save your selves. So that is why I think the Vardon School pool should stay.
