Book Buddies Portfolio Sample 2016

Description:This term we have been doing book buddies I am in Bookapedia  so Suzanne divided us into groups, we were in groups with people that have the same goal, then in our groups we chose our buddie I chose Tabitha, every week we have to have a discussion with our buddies and our coach to make sure that we are on track.

Evaluation:I think I did well at Making a great high quality board game but there were a few problems and things we forgot and did at the last minute. I think I got caught up in everything I was doing and forgot about my actual goal so I could work on that.

Maths portfolio post

Description: In maths we are learning about measurement.  We started by getting a Task that was all about measurement and we had our first go. I didn't do very well because I had no idea where to start. Then we had some workshops on measurement Area capacity weight and then we revisited the task and I did a lot better. Here is my evaluation.

At RSS we do the forty hour famine were you give up something you take for granted in life that other people may not have. For this years forty hour famine I lived out of a backpack for forty hours!

The night the famine started we went up to school and made quilts for children in Syria. We cut out our hand and sewed them on to a fabric and then joy sewed them together. Soon they will be taken to Syria! We were on the Manawatu standard!!

Description: Every Monday we do discovery time.Discovery time is we have lots of different activity's we can chose from. The point of Discovery time is to show Panekiretanga (Excellence).It is our school value for the year.
We got given a task to fill in a slide that ask us to give 3 examples of excellent's and some targets so her it is. 
I think I have done well in discovery time. It is really fun. I have been showing excellence but I need to maintain that always and I can do that by always keeping it in my mind.

Feedback/feed forward:
Good work Bella. I think that you have been showing panekiretanga very well but next time you could discover a bit more.
