School Production Recount

LI to: Create and mark a recount.
This week for writing all of Mr Ogilvies groups had to write a recount about the school production that happened in term three, we also had to mark the other group member's writing. For my recount I started off before we knew that we were going to do the production and ended as soon as the first of the real performances was happening. Once I'd finished my recount I went back and tried to fix as many mistakes as I could. The next day when we had to mark each other's recounts my group just passed our Chromebooks in a circle making it easier to mark everyone's, that day the four people who's writing was rated the highest out of the groups were rated by other groups. And now today their writing was rated by Mr Ogilvie. With my writing I need to make sure that I: Use better punctuation, organise my paragraphs better and make sure my sentences have a good structure. I did good on: Spelling high frequency words, using good vocabulary and also my ideas.
School Production
When I first heard about the production I was extremely nervous, I don’t like dancing in front of other people. And so when we first walked into the hall to meet our dance teacher Zoey and had to get into different groups all I wanted was to be surrounded by people I knew. I’d thought that we were going to choose our dances but to my astonishment I found that our dances had already been picked for us. The group that I was in had been chosen to use the Gangnam Style dance. Since we were the first group to be picked we were also the first group to practice and during that time we mostly just stepped on each other’s toes. Once we’d finished our practice we were allowed to leave the hall to get on with some work, therefore I wasn’t able to see any of the other groups’ dances.


It was the next week and once again I was nervous, not only because I didn’t like dancing but also because I didn’t like my toes being stepped on! We learnt some new moves and did more practicing, and to my surprise we even came to the point where nobody stepped on any toes. That week we were videoed and the very next day we had to use the video to practice. It took many weeks of practicing and polishing but we finally managed to get our dance right. It was quite the celebration for the group and we were all content with ourselves as we watched others practice their moves too.


Finally the much dreaded time had come or so I thought, we were merely touching the tip of the iceberg because the performance we did at first was only matinee, the real first performance was later on. And even on that performance I almost screwed up! Luckily I managed to quickly rearrange myself and finished the dance. We had been told before to go into a specific spot once we’d finished our dance and so we quickly walked there. We then watched as the other groups completed their dances as well. As soon as the harlem shake group finished their dance everyone had to rush forward in lines and, well do the harlem shake. We also had to do mexican waves twice with our hands and twice with our bodies. After that we did another thing where we basically had to punch the air around us, as soon as we’d finished punching around us twice we then had to do the harlem shake again until one point in the music where we just flopped to the floor.


Hours later:

The time had come, we were all on the stage. It was the first big performance night. The lights turned on, cameras flashed, people anxiously waited and then the music started...

Tables Test

Today I did a new thing called tables test, for it you have to answer times tables questions as soon as you can. For every question you get points, you can then challenge others to see who can get the most amount of points.

Local Community

LI to: Show where members of my community are in my nested circles.
This week for inquiry we had a new topic, that topic is our local community. For our must do we had to create a diagram containing three or four circles, we then had to fill those circles with people or jobs. For example the first circle is the people who you see everyday, the second circle is the people who you sometimes see and the last circle is the people who you don't see a lot or don't see at all but still affect the way you live.
I added in the police man because I thought it would be rather boring just looking at words and three circles.

Free Rice

This week for my other slot I chose to do free rice, I managed to get up to 820 questions before finally becoming bored. For this website you have to answer questions, every question you answer correctly donates ten grains of rice to fight world hunger.

Key Boarding Drills

This week for my daily six slot I chose to do level three of the key boarding drills. For it we have to put our two index fingers on F and J and then put our other fingers where we want to, while doing that we have to copy down what's already written. We do these drills to improve our handwriting and also to help become more familiar with our keyboards.

Kiwi Can

This week at Kiwi Can we played two games and were learning about respect. The first game was one where out four different groups were split into two groups, after that we then had to walk around in a circle and music played, once the music stopped we had to freeze and the people who were on one specific spot had to say what they liked about the other person. For the second game everyone had to write down things that made them special, those things would be read out and the others had to try and guess who the thing belonged to.
