I can gather, evaluate, and synthesise information across a small range of texts

In class we have been  doing a reading activity on if the New Zealand flag should or should not be changed, we looked at different sites and reading the ideas of why the two flag's are special and what it means to New Zealand. Here is a link to the doc

WALT: Apply Striking and Fielding activities in a range of sports and activities.

My Strengths

The striking strategies I was able to effectively demonstrate during the games we played were being able to hit a ball reasonably hard and far by standing on my side, and following though with the hit.

The throwing and catching strategies I was able to effectively demonstrate during the games we played were cup my hands if if it was a low or mid section throw/hit, or using soft hands if it were a high ball head high.

My Next Steps

To improve my striking of a ball I need to find some gaps in the fielding, because if I target that spot I can get past the fielder's, and get more time to run.

To Improve my catching and fielding I need to place my self in position because that might give me more of a chance of catching the ball.

The game that I enjoyed the most was was called rounders because you had the hit the ball with a tennis bat and it had base's that you could stop of at like baseball.

Leadership food forest

yesterday after noon and this morning we have been working in the food forest at school, yesterday where we  weeding the food forest area where we getting rid of the grass and weeds, but leaving the seeds so the food Forest will regrow.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Today we were working in the sweet corn area where we were harvesting the corn and pulling out the weeds as well, the reason why we did this because the corn was ready the other thing was there was deadly berries among the sweet corn area.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                The reason why we had to weed the food forest was because the food forest was completely full of weeds.
