Today at discovery time Hamish,Oliver and I ran the obstacle course we based the obstacle course on the tv shows American ninja warrior and wipeout the obstacle course we made was a cross between the two. The people that competed in the competition are the following. Liam Sanjive Riley John Mason and Niko. At discovery time I learnt how to use the class timer and I learnt to use the top of the orange monkey bars as a balancing beam. Some of the people I admired were Oliver and Hamish because they were good at cheering people on and encouraging people.
My speech :)       
Shopping shopping shopping do you ever find it boring. Why can't there be like a roller coaster in shopping centre or some type of kid amusement place. And when I say amusement place I don't mean like some kiddie magic show you know pulling rabbits out of a hat making a puppet talk to the audience ear piercing sound of four year old kids laughing. I mean like a theme park ride. Like the giant drop, bumper carts, the log ride, the vertical drop, the torpedo or some other exciting ride just compare the two the giant drop or can you go get the eggs can you go get the milk ok you get the picture.



This is what happens when you usually go shopping. Ok can you go get apples (uhh) you go through the aisles one by one and then when you get to the last aisle you walk out of the shop and you think to yourself ok now that's two hours of my life I will never get back. Another reason why shopping is a waste of time is because it wastes childhood time because there is so many things that kids could be doing rather than getting groceries. Like playing with a ball, watching YouTube, watching tv, playing with someone different for a change



,. Did you know that in one week the ordinary woman shops for an average of six to eight hours which means every month the average woman shop for twenty eight to thirty two hours which is more than a day wasted and that doesn't even include online shopping. Do you know how clever shopping stores are cause this is how clever they are. Did you know in most clothing stores the escalators are placed strategically so you walk past all the new models all of the best and expensive clothes so by the time you get to the escalator you've walked through it all. Another mind blowing fact about shopping is that did you know the money that the average woman spends On clothes is half the money they spend on groceries which is a horrifying amount of money wasted on beauty and fashion. Wait hold on let's not forget about the men.  Men also waste very valuable time on shopping. In fact here's a fact about men shopping ha ha See what I did there ha ha    ha        ha. ok back to the speech did you know some men are scared of the labels they will get from their friends when they will go shopping that's why they make the woman do the shopping.


One of the other reasons I am talking to you today about boring shopping is because if the shopping stores used my idea they would make more profit because it won't take long for mums and dads to get sick of there kids moaning and crying .  P.S. I would not be offended if any shopping stores used my idea cause what type of kid would be offended about a theme park being made. So just face it adults shopping is boring


Medal 1 (comedy) ok that's two hours of my life I'll never get back

Medal 2( fact) escalator after all the expensive clothes

Medal 3( fact) 24 to 32 hours wasted on shopping

Discovery time reflection

Discovery time reflection  
Today at discovery time I made an iMovie with Korey ,Hamish ,Riley ,Jackson and Gabby.
The role I played was being part of a team and the hard part was making everyone agree on the decisions we made.
 A strategy I used was teaching people to do things and being a leader of the group because today I taught the group how to use the camera on iMovie.
Something new I have learnt is how to film steadily while running with the camera.
A struggle for me was letting everyone do what they wanted but still make everyone agree with each other - it is hard to make five different people agree to the same thing. This is called compromise.
Today I showed a growth mindset when I let Gabby do what she wanted. I let Gabby do that because she doesn't usually get to do what she wants.
Next discovery time I will carry on with my IMovie and hope it's not raining.

                                                                OVERALL
Overall I think I made good progress on the iMovie and I was happy by the result of today.

Proud writing

Proud writing 
  A time I felt proud was when I won the weetbix tryathlon I felt very proud of  myself .
 All my friends were there my mum was there my step dad was there most of my friends were there and my brother and sister were there.
I ran as fast as a cheetah I biked as fast as a car and I swam as fast a a bluefin. 
Overall I felt very proud of myself and will always remember that moment

Camp writing

My favourite parts of school camp were spotlight and mountain biking. I thought spotlight was the best because it wasn't the usual game of spotlight, it was huge, hard and easy in some ways. Hard because so many finders. Huge, with seventy people. And easy because all the things you could hide behind and you had time to run since there were sixty nine distractions. I made it all 5 rounds and did not get found once. I noticed that in movies people hide in grass and camouflage from the bad guys.


 I thought it was a myth. But it worked for me. I also learnt that black puffer jackets and long grass are a great mix to hide in. In the first round I just hid behind a chair and when no light was shining at me I would slide my chair forward and then when a light shone on me I would stop and do that process again, again, again and again and eventually I made it to the safe zone. 


 Round two.
 Round two I went with Will and I could tell he did not want to get seen because he was going so fast for me. This was like The Matrix, slow motion and he was just like Neo. We carried on running through the bush and finally got to the back of the playground and at that point we could basically just walk in and we did.


 Round three. 
Round three this round was by far the easiest because all I did was simply run there in a straight line and somehow I made it, and for me that was the biggest fluke in school camp. 


Round four.
 Round four was by far the hardest round because this round there were even more finders this round I went with korey and we army crawled our way to the safe zone through all the bushes and then we got to the nerve racking part the run of faith we stood there waiting for the light to go away and then we heard the whistle that means the round is over quickly we sprinted to the safe zone.


Round five. 
Round five was by far the funnest round because I went with a bunch of people screaming this is sparta and the only people who made it were Korey Will Hamish Leon Ollie Liam Jay
Jackson and me.

Overall I thought my year six camp was by far the and best camp I have ever had. 

Camp reflection 
In my next piece of writing I would like to include more similes and other language features so that people can get more of a image in their head at the time.
Something that worked well in my writing was the simile in round two and the explanation of how engaged me and my friends were about this game. The simile I was referring to is will was going so fast he was like Neo in the matrix.

Term one reflection

In term one we learnt about beat and pumanawatanga. I also learnt that a good class environment always sticks to the beat/pulse. In term one I felt that in the performance I played my role well. It was especially hard because there were only three people in my performance group. For me some of the highlights were the otago problem solving test the performance and most group activities. A struggle for me was the performance because there was only three people in my performance group. For my performance I based my group on different types of scooters.


I also learnt that to keep a good environment always keeps the beat/pulse because if the pulse gets out of control then it affects the rhythm and without a steady rhythm everything goes out of hand. In term 1 I learnt that participating and contributing is key because it gives you all the potential you can get and when you have all the potential as possible you are bound to be successful.
