Expectations for Term 4

Walt: use correct sentences to help structure our writing.

Term 4 has started and the holidays are finished. Say goodbye to youtube and netflix time! This term’s topic is Te Wa Toi meaning Time for art or Art time. Are you ready for a pact term and a lot of blog posts? Read on to find more about my goals,expectations and what going on this new term.

Term 4 is my favourite time of the year as a lot of events happen in 9 weeks. Events like The Manaiakalani Film Festival,Art,Prize Giving and many more to come. So stay tuned to see my blog posts about these awesome events.

Art is a subject or time where I fail in confidence to show my artwork to others. That is one goal that I want to accomplish or work hard on as this term is all about art. Another goal I want to improve on is getting less distracted and spending my work time more wisely. That is all my goals I wish to accomplish this term. Let’s see if I actually make that come true.

I am hoping to learn more about wearable art and Korean art. I have been inspired by K-pop to learn more about Korea and that is what I want to learn a lot about. Maths, that is something I am confident in but I want to be a Maths genius.

Te Wa Toi will be a entertaining yet occupied term. There’s a lot on like The Manaiakalani Film Festival and Prize Giving, and I have two goals I am eager to accomplish, and I hope my teacher reads this so he knows what I would like to learn! Overall, I am excited to see how this term goes.

Task Description
For this task we wrote about the new term ( Term 4), room Seven Literacy had to write about our expectation, goals and ambitions for this last term of the year. I was focusing on how to write a proper conclusion because we had a whole lesson on how to write a proper ending conclusion. I found it hard to not use the same key words over and over again because then my writing would sound repetitive.

Research Movie - Extension

For my Inquiry Research Presentation, my group’s point of view is Doctors. In our group there is Simon, Norah - Jade and me. I have been focussing on Health statistics for children especially for Maori and Pacific. As you can see I found a lot of information about my topic. There have been many ways to lower the rates on health issues for children. The main problem is Obesity. In New Zealand there are Childhood Obesity plans for children that have Obesity. That is a way that lower the rates for Obesity. There have also been lots of Surveys about some children's everyday lifestyle, what they eat or drink, what they do for exercise and more. Overall my main message is - As New Zealand is a multicultural country there have been many w ays to lower the rates of obesity and health issues for children.

Thinking in other people's shoes!

Walt:understand the text from the perspectives of the characters

Task Description
The Imacs group had to read a book named Fangs: The sequal. After we read that we had to think from a character's perspective from the story. We wrote what we thought they felt and thought. This is a hard skill to achieve and I think I am getting better at thinking in other peoples shoes.
