I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury

I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury

In this project I was working with Lauren and we decided to create a childrens picture book

In this project we decided that our success criteria was:

A good Children’s Story needs...
Why is this important?
Eye catching covers
Because then it will look interesting and the kids will want to read it
An interesting title
If the title is good then they will want to read it and find out what the story is about
Colourful illustrations
Because then it will look nice and they will want to read it. It surprises the reader when they turn the page and will want to keep reading
Jokes spread around the book
So it makes the book funny and interesting
Rhyme if you can
It will sound interesting and if you're trying to get a point through to the reader then they will understand easier with the rhyme

Overall our project met meet this criteria because it had eye catching illustrations and an interesting title. I also think the cover really will make kids want to read the book

Our final completed project
Book titled 'The Wonderous Water Warriors'Read this free book made on StoryJumper

Koru Games

Koru Games

The activity I did was Volleyball

Two highlights were:
1) That our school won a medal and a new volleyball because Volleyball is a new sport to our school and after 2 years we finally came back with a medal
2) Meeting other people and making new friends because you don't get to do it that often and it's nice to meet new people

I am proud of the hard work and effort that I put into Volleyball because at the start I didn't even know the rules or anything but I was willing to give it a go on my last year at primary and it turned out to be so fun and I am actually pretty good for a beginner 

Some advice that I would give to future year 7 and 8's is that you should focus at your practices and practice in your own time because it helps a lot

My care progress so far

CARE: My progress so far

The CARE award that I am working towards is:  Silver

The one area of CARE that I am doing best in is: Playground and field because: I got heaps of ticks and highlights in it

The one area of CARE that I need to work harder in is: cloakrooms because: I don't have as many ticks as the other areas

To show my leadership qualities I am a role model to others in the CARE values by doing/showing these leadership traits: Resilience, by never giving up and helping people until they are happy with the outcome, Empathy, I think about how other people are feeling and help them out, Integrity, I stay biased and listen to both parties

On the CARE SOLO matrix below I am at this SOLO level: Extended Abstract because: I can understand and use the care values independently and can role model them to other students





Extended Abstract
