Athlectics Day Reflection

Description: Yesterday (Wednesday 23rd Nov) we had Athletics day. The activities were Sprints, 800m run, Hurdles, Vortex, Shot put, High jump, Long jump, Discus and Relays. We got given free sausages and they were tasty. My placings were 1st in the 800m run and 3rd in vortex. I really surprised myself getting a placing in vortex because I have never ever been really good at it. My favourite activities would have had to be high jump even though I didn't come in the top three but I came 4th and also I really enjoyed the 800m run. I was really proud of myself in all the activities because I came 3rd and 1st and in everything else I came fourth. The most challenging part about Athletics day would have to probably be the long jump because I could not get the timing right so I did a jump step but over all I enjoyed every activity. Next time I think I could focus on my long jump and doing some more practise so I can do a bit better in the skills that aren't my best.

  • Athletics Reflection:
    • What was the most enjoyable part of athletics for you? Why?
    • What are you really proud of? Why?
    • What was the most challenging part? Why?
    • Where to now? What are your goals for next time? Why do you want to focus on this?

Book Buddies

Description: For Term 4 we started a new book buddies slide. We chose a new book called Long Way Home. I have not started that book because I was so enthused in the twist of gold that I could not stop till I had finished the book. We picked the book Long Way Home based on the fact that it was a Micheal Morpurgo book. We were so excited that there were series of the books because we think that Micheal Morpurgo is a very great writer. Every week we record what we have read so when we come back to it we will remember. We had the choice to chose a new coach and a new buddie but Yassmine and I decided to stay the same.  Here is the slide that Yassmine and I made...


Evaluation: I think that I have done very well with this slide because I filled everything in and read the comments that Elly/Suzanne left but I think that if I ever get the chance to do this again I would do my best to keep it up to date.

Feedback/Feedforward: I think that you have done a great job but I think that you could stay up to date with your recording. - Charlotte W

Market Day Reflection

Description: For Market Day I was in the executive team. The executive team is a group that organises, runs and manages Market Day. I was partnered up with Zara for Advertising everyones product. Zara and I had some struggles getting the brochure finish in time for Market Day. I printed and made the map as a last minute thing because everything wasn't going to plan so we were running behind time. The total result of Market day was a success but it was a struggle for Zara and I to make the brochure and get everyones product advertised.

Advertising Article Writing

Description: For a few weeks now in Troys writing we have been working on advertising some headphones that we designed. We added some personal touches to the headphones like there are no cords and that they can zone out any noise and all the stuff that was put in the article. We had to make and design our own logo as a normal business would and then advertise what we were persuading people to buy.  I added as much information into to my article as possible. Take a look at my article I made...

Evaluation: I am very happy about the outcome from this piece of writing because I worked really hard and I added a lot of detail but next time I think that now I am familiar with the website logomakr I can could try to make a more advanced logo.

Feedback/Feedforward: I love your story and I don't know because you did fabulous and you have nothing to work on.
