Risk Taking Action Plan

Description: In the last two weeks some kids have been working with Elly Troy and Nic and some teachers from Ashhurst school about what it takes to take a risk. This whole process is about putting your self in the pit and trying some thing new that is out of your comfort zone. we got given some stripes of  paper with a whole lot of risks on them and we had to rank them from the most riskiest to the lest. My most riskiest was to sing in front of an audience but my action plan was to have a partner and even on the way Bella, Zara and I had an idea to disguise our selfs so we wouldn't have to use our actually voices. Today all of the kids who got chosen to do JK were taking out side. We got given a script for what we are going to say and we also got given 3 action plan sheets and 3 sheets of risks. We had to take 3 or 4 kids and we talked to them about what they need to do when they take a risk. In my group I had Mayson, Jake and Max. I was their coach and I helped them through when they were ranking their risks and when they were filling in what resources and what things they think they will need to complete the task ect. After we had finished filling in the form my group had to email me a thank you letter. Here is the emails that Mayson, Jake and Max emailed me and a photo of my group and I working together...

Max Barry 
Hi um thanks for helping me figure out what my risk because yea so thanks
I forgot to say what you could do next time 
You should explain the task a bit better or something

Jake Crawford

Thank you for letting me find out the risky things and the least risky things because I wouldn't of done that because I never actually wanted to do that.

Next time you could explain the task better even though I knew what to do.

Thanks Jake 🙂🙃

Dear Hannah 
Thanks For Helping Me By Showing Me Risky Things

Kapa Haka Portfolio Sample

Description: On Wednesday the Kapa Haka group was getting ready to perform at the regent. We transformed the song hall of fame into a song about our goal this year. In the chorus we have changed out hall of fame and put Panekirtanga in and ect. At school we took our Kapa Haka photo all together and then we performed once on the school stage before we performed in front of the school. I was not able to make it to the regent because I had something on but I know that our group was amazing. This performance was festival and that is when a groups from other schools come together and perform in front of the audience. I am most proud of my whole team and how far we have come with coming up with new songs and we made it to another performance. What challenged me the most would probably have to be learning the new songs at the start and also learning the new songs. Here is two videos of our performance( The one at school and at the regent)...






 Evaluation: I think that I have done a really great job in Kapa Haka learning all the new songs but I think when I have learnt it it is sort of just like knowledge. I think that I need to work on my puo kana because I get a little embarrassed if people are watching who I know but on stage I am not that nervous because I just wan't to entertain them.

 Feedback/Feedforward: I think that you really stand out when you perform and you always look like your having a great time but I think that you need to work on your puo kana as well.

Student Led Conference Tips

Description: For term 3 student led conference we have been given the privilege to do it at home during the holidays. We have been doing our posts and putting our links on to a doc so the teachers know that we have something to share at home. We still went through the process of seeing if it is up to standards and ect. The only thing that has changed about how we are going to do our conference is that one is a homely conference and the other is a studently conference and that is when the teachers can also have a little chat about how they think you are as a learner. Here were some tips that Nic gave us...

Calendar Art Portifolio Sample

Description: This term we have been making our calendar art. Rooms 13 and 14 are doing a different art to room 12. For room 12s art we had to design a background, paint some paper in different colours and textures, pick a patten, cut it our and then stick is together. This piece of art is a long prossec because it didn't happen all in one day it took like 5 weeks or more. The worst thing about it is that I made up the hardest background and I spent all my time on it and in the end I didn't even use that because I didn't like the look of it all together so I made a new one. Have a look at the link below and the image...



Our Calendar Art

Evaluation: I really feel like I have done a good job in this because I put my self in the pit a few times by picking the hardest pattern but in the end it all worked out. I think that maybe next time I could still pick a hard pattern but just have a mindset that it wont be that easy at times.
