On Friday I had choir. I demonstrated leadership because I reminded Xanthe that we had choir and I showed up on time, when the role was being called I was being respectful and listening so that I could hear my name being called. At the moment we are preparing for the music festival a lot of the songs that we have to sing for the music festival are quite difficult because the songs are sung really high and the timing of the song is tricky. My favourite songs that we are preparing for the music festival are California Dreaming, Mexican Wave and Poi e. I really like Poi e because the song is a good challenge because there are a lot of words that we have to sing really fast.
Yesterday we had technology, since our bus was a little late we had to wait in one line outside by the car park waiting for the bus to arrive. I was being a good role model to the younger students and their parents walking past because I was being patient waiting for the bus, I was being respectful and I wasn't being really noisy. When the bus arrived we all got on I got onto the bus politely and said good morning to the bus driver, I found a seat quietly and put my bag down. I followed the rules and expectations that we have on the bus e.g. only talk to the person next to you. when we arrived at technology I got off the bus and said thank you to the bus driver, I continue to follow the expectations that our tech teachers have set for us too.

I think I am at extended abstract because I can explain what would happen if the feature was missing and I can explain what the purpose of the feature is. I do not have a next step yet.
This is the solo taxonomy

Today I had Kapa Haka I showed respect while Matua Rihari was telling us what order our items went in for the show. We kept going over the actions and Whakataka te Hau until we got them all right. We learnt a new song I really enjoyed it. It is to do with our school. I consistently show leadership because I turn up on time for Kapa Haka every week, I try my best with all the songs and actions that we do and I go home and practice the songs. At home I help my brother with the actions and give him some feedback on what I thought he did good and what he can improve on.

Today after school I had my guitar lesson with Mr McCallum. We are still working towards our performance next week at the Celebration of Learning Assembly. I will be playing the guitar while the choir sings. I will also be playing the guitar while we sing Nga iwi E. As Mr McCallum had a little bit of extra time after my lesson today he taught me how to play a simple 4 count on the drums.
Today we had our weekly Student Council meeting. Ryan and Hannah had set the agenda. Today we discussed getting more devices for the year 4's and more Chromebooks for the year 7 and 8's. I continue to demonstrate my CARE values by turning up on time, contributing to the discussions, showing respect to others whilst they are talking and accepting Mrs Trotters point of view.
Today I was a positive role model for the Kakano Team when they were running their cross country. I cheered them on when they ran past me. When some of the kids were looking tired I encouraged them positively to keep on running. I showed good leadership to them by wearing correct uniform.

Yesterday we had our weekly Student Council meeting. We talked about everyone in the whole school bringing in old books, clothes and toys to donate to worthy charities, such as Ronald McDonald House, Salvation Army. This is to be discussed further at our next meeting. We also discussed further to last weeks meeting about getting more devices for Kauri. We talked about the positive and negative aspects of getting these.
On Thursday I had guitar with Mr McCallum, we had a bit of spare time before my lesson began so I helped him to put way the instruments. Then we started by tuning our guitars. He taught me a song called ' Let Her Go' which I really wanted to learn. I played it on the Guitar and Mr McCallum played it on the piano. I really enjoy my lessons and have made a lot of progress so far this year playing the guitar.

Yesterday we had a Student Council meeting. I showed leadership by turning up on time and not forgetting to go to my meetings. We discussed our ideas of getting a hockey turf, we decided that it may cost too much money. We then discussed the possibility of getting devices such as iPad's, iPod's for the Kauri classes. I felt it was a productive meeting as we all shared our thoughts respectfully.
At Kapa Haka today we spent time going over whakataka te Hau, because we really needed to practice the second part of it, I showed leadership qualities by performing my best in front of the younger students. We practiced poi and I helped a year 5 and some year 6 girls. I really enjoy doing the poi and really look forward to be able to use long poi next year.

On the bus to technology
I was being respectful because I listened to Miss O'Connor and sat three to a seat, I only talked to the people who I was sitting next too. I was quiet so the bus driver could concentrate on driving and I was polite to the bus driver and said thank you when I got off the bus.
Today I had guitar with Mr McCullam we are still learning Knocking on Heaven's Door and One voice. I continue to show respect by turning up on time to my lessons and show leadership by being a good role model in front of Pheobe. I am looking forward to performing in front of the school at Celebration of Learning Assembly.

Today we had training for Koru Games, I showed respect by listening to my Mum ( coach), she gave us some drills to do I worked well with my team mates. Mum asked each of us what our desired outcome was for Koru Games, I listened carefully to other people's ideas and most of us would like to win and and have fun too.
On Friday I had kapa haka. We have started to practice for the end of term celebration assembly, we are going to sing whakataka te hau, he honore and pa mai. We still have a lot of practice to do because some of the younger kids don't know the actions to pa mai. I am very excited for the end of term assembly and I have been practicing a lot at home for kapa haka especially with our new poi routine.

The snow is like a big soft pillow. I can see children building a
snowman as tall as a tree. Whoosh kerr as the frost hardens up.
I can see smoke coming out from the chimneys, it felt as cold
as Antarctica. I sat by the fire and had a hot chocolate.
That is the end of my winter treat. Now here comes spring with
a new heat.

On Tuesday I helped out with the sausage sizzle. I could see that they were really busy so I went and offered to help serve. I was fast and efficient at serving the sausages. When the queues had subsided I went to the kitchen and helped to cut the tops off juicies so they could be served. My friends wanted me to come play with them outside but I said no because I had already offered to help with the sausage sizzle.

When we joined in the activities I showed respect by listening to the house captains and followed the rules.

Yesterday I had peer mediation with Emma and Emily. Peer mediation is where you have specific days that you are on. Emma, Emily and I are on a Friday at lunchtime. We have areas that we oversee our area is the courts and the junior area. I was being a good role model because even though it was really hot yesterday I kept my hat on and followed the school rules. As a peer mediator my job is to help anyone out who are having disagreements over gear or over a game or over something like that. Over the past 3 weeks I have remembered to show up to peer mediation and I have been on time.
Today on the bus to technology I was being a good role model and a leader because I was showing respect by only talking to the person next to me and I wasn't being loud.
