JK Taking risks

In the last 2 weeks, I have been working with Nic, Elly, Troy and some teachers from Ashurst. Along with 19 other kids. We have been learning to take risk and come up with ways to help us develop some strategies to deal with risks. The first week we got 9 strips of paper that had some risk actions on them. We then had to put them in order of 1 being our most risky thing and 9 being our lest risky thing. Then we met this guy who wanted to be a house leader but he had to talk in front of adults about why he wanted to and he was a bit nervous! So we made him a action plan...
Then we were told we were going to do our risky thing my risky thing was singing in front of an audience. We then each made an action plan. On my action plan were things like doing it with a buddy. Then we did that thing and went back for another session. And reflected on our risk and how our action plan helped. Then we got 9 strips of paper that had learning risks on it. We put them in order like we normally did. And today i taught that excact some lesson to 4 other children who had never done it before we got a script and read that to them. I think i did well but i could have gone a bit more in depth with the action plan! Here are some email they sent me about how I went.a photo of me in action.

Calendar Art Sample 2016 T3

Description: This term we have been doing calendar art and we have been doing self portraits and what we like. The first we had to think about what represents us and draw the ideas down that best represent us and were we live or what we like. The second stage was draw our ideas onto A3 card. The third stage was to practiced using paint and pastel for our backgrounds. The fourth stage was to practice drawing our self portrait and after that we had a practice we got some card and drew the real thing. The last thing we did was the background. We used paint pastel and dye to make the background look effective. Here is a slide showing some effects we used and the finished piece.

ET Reo Portfolio Sample 2016

In ET Reo we have been learning about Whakatauki's. A Whakatauki's Is a Maori proverb. A proverb is a meaningful quote to live off and be inspired by. We learnt 2 Whakatauki's. One was He Aha Mea Nui o Te ao? He Tangata He Tangata He Tangata. (What is the most important thing in the word? The people, the people, the people) I am going to be telling you about what we did for that one. So we decided that it was about the people and we are people so we did a self portrait of our selves. And we thought we need to spice up this one wall in the class room so we painted the quote on paper and then stuck our people around it here is a picture of it...

Evaluation: I didn't know what a Whakatauki was but after Troy and Elly explained it all I have a good understanding of it. I think I could have strived for excellence a bit better with my self portrait but it still is quite nice and I like it.

Feedback/feed forward: You have such a talent in drawing I think you could work on the little detail like the eyes the lips and the nose but otherwise you might have a future in drawing.
