E T Reo

Description: In E T Reo we have been making memes to show our understanding of our Whakatauki. We had to get or make an image to go with the quote. Here is mine.
My success should not be given to me alone, as it was not individual success, but success of a collective.

Athletics Day

Description: Yesterday was Athletics Day. We had to make a reflection on yesterday's event.
Athletics Reflection:
    • What was the most enjoyable part of athletics for you? Why?
      Long Jump because at practise I wasn't that good but on the day I did pretty good.
    • What are you really proud of? Why?
      I am proud of trying my hardest because even though I don't do well I always like trying.
    • What was the most challenging part? Why?
      800m Long Distance because I am not good at running alone, but long distance is a lot harder for me.
    • Where to now? What are your goals for next time? Why do you want to focus on this? My next goals are to keep working harder so I can do better at Ross.

Description: In the past 2 weeks some of the Year 6's have been learning about taking risks. Now, we became the teachers and we taught Poutama in groups of 3 or 4 about taking risks in their learning.
Here is some feedback from my 'students'.

Hi Tane, Thanks for being a great coach. I think you did very well on speaking loud. Your next step could be being more clear about what you are saying. Thanks a lot 👍🏻😋

E T Reo Portfolio Sample

Description: In E T Reo we have been doing Whakatauki's. A Whakatauki is a Maori Proverb, or something to live by. Our first Whakatauki was 'He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata! He tangata! He tangata!', which means 'What is the most important thing in the world? It is people! It is people! It is people!' We made some art to go with the Whakatauki.
Feedback/Feedforward: I love how much detail was in your drawing. Maybe next time you could go a bit closer on where there are all the people so we can see the quote.

Evaluation: I like my person but I am not that happy that I couldn't get it done because of E Learning Buddies.
