My 2014 School Goals

My Personal Goals - 2014  Date : 24/2/14
My achievement I was most proud of  last year  in the classroom was the FIlmfest movie my friends and I made because although it took about two moths to make it, the finished product would've had to been one of the best movies ever!!

The thing I was most proud of last year outside of the classroom was …  Was kapa haka/te reo because I really got to learn more about the maori culture and I think I'm able to speak more te reo than I ever have.

In reading my learning goal is to …. Excel my reading age

To achieve this goal I need to …. READ READ READ!!

In writing  my goal is to practice the way I use my vocab and how I put my sentences together.

To achieve this goal I need to again READ READ READ!!!

In Maths my goal is to… Improve not just by one year but hopefully by two and a half

The learning area I think I need to improve in most is … Maths and Writing

My goal for this year around the classroom is to (behavior/self management), not get sidetracked by my friends and finish work on time.

My goal for this year around the school is to … be a not good but great prefect and role model in the school, and to try and help more around school with dancing and performing.

Akoranga Maurakau Tuatahi (My First Maurakau Lesson)

The new year for kapa haka at school started today. Teaching the year 7&8s , are Mr G, and Miss Tito. Mr G, is kindly giving up more of his time to teach maurakau at school. This is a little video of what we learnt today, at my first maurakau class. Its a little shabby but at the end of the term I'm going to upload another video to show how much I've improved. Hope you enjoy :)

UNICORNS ARE REAL (My edited writing sample)

Unicorns are mostly known to people as made up creatures. But to me they are as real as Barack Obama. Even the way they live is freakishly the same way as him. I have researched many things about unicorns and have put all my findings on a doc that shows that they are real.

 The first unicorn in history, lived on an unknown island 60,000, miles north of Rangitoto, Auckland, New Zealand. Unicorns were created by the love making of a deformed pony with a cone on his head and a horse. When the horse gave birth, its baby came out with a cone on his head. The name unicorn wasn't the creatures original name though. It was Unicone because of the one cone he was born with.

 He lived on that island for soo many years, getting called ugly, deformed and dorky so he had to leave. The unicorn flew to Glen Innes in Auckland on his eagle friend. This was in 1998. Since he was living in a new place, the unicorn had to change his diet.

 Breakfast and lunch was chicken and chips from My Bakery, and dinner was just the usual fish and chips from Marsics with a little bit of lollies. You would imagine that the unicorn would've been fat. Instead of exercising to burn everything off, the creature burped rainbows and farted skittles. That's the unicorns form of exercise.

 The unicorn species have increased over the years. In 2014, there have been 2654 more unicorns made since 2001. So thanks to the one unicorn that found a good horse friend, and enlarged his species of animals.

I have come to a conclusion, that they are real based on the information I have gathered. I would one day love to see one of these Unicorns to prove the world that they’re wrong about them. So this is it my story to prove that Unicorns are real.

Day One Of School...

Eager to start school, I prepared myself, feeling nervous. The new year of school was almost about to start, and the nerves were getting to me. Prefect, Yr8, role model... I was so worried that I wouldn’t be up to the expectations.
