Peer Meditation Excellance post #5

Today me, Jade and Tanika did peer mediation. Daniel wasn't there so Tanika filled in it's easier with 3 because you can solve more problems.   First we went to the junior playground no problems there. So we went onto the around the back of the junior classes. There were a lot of kids around there so we told them all they could not play there and it was out of bounds and they said okay and went and played in the appropriate area. But when we were sorting something else out 2 people from that group went and played in the toilets. We told them they could not play there again and they said why so we explained and they said okay and went of.

I showed resilience because I did not let them play out of bounds I told them they had to get out. I showed Active thinking asking Tanika to fill in for Daniel to make it easier.

Careers Education C.V. Writing

CAREERS EDUCATION we have been learning to write a skills based Curriculum Vitae.

A skills based C.V. focuses more on the skills that we have,  rather than our work history.

Here is a link to our online Modelling Book that shows the process we have followed.

Three things that I have learned about writing a Curriculum Vitae are:

  1. They need to be very tidy.

  1. You need to have enough infomation.

  1. That some C.V's are short and some are very long.

Today we had to go to a Choir meeting for the open day because we are performing. All we did was practise our 3 songs that we will perform so we did not do much. I showed Active thinking because I thought about what I was singing and was not distracting any one else. I also showed Excellence because I tryed my best while singing.

Peer Meditation Excellance post #4

Today me and Daniel did peer mediation.   First we went to the junior courts there was a little girl who dropped her juicy and so I said go to the hall foyer and say that she dropped her juicy so she went and did that.. So we went onto the Field were most problems are, we saw Jordan throwing leaves on the little kids but he said he was playing with them. We told him he has to go somewhere else because he already push a little kid over. 

I showed resilience because I did not say to Jordan okay you can play there I said to him he can't. I showed Community by helping people in the playground so they would not get hurt.

Leadership blog Excellence post #4

On Friday we did weeding with the little kids I felt like I was gardening with puppy's because I had to watch their every move because they could have pulled out anything and it was no use that Tanika was distracting me. After we had finished it was time to go and wash our hands I showed active thinking because I was opening the doors for them and helping them take their gloves off. The boys shoes were so dirty and wet the bathroom was brown and wet because of them.
I showed the Excellence because when the floor was wet I did not let anyone in there in case they fell over and hurt them selves.

leadership blog-Excellance post #3

About 2 weeks ago, We learnt a dance to uptown funk and we also learnt a jive dance, it was really fun. Uptown funk was a hip-hop routine and the jive was a jive. For the jive we had to dance with a boy. We were practising for a big performance.I thought it was really fun and I wish we did it every term.

I showed Resilients because even though some of the steps were hard I keeped trying and in the end I just did it and I think I did it really well.I also showed Respect because I did not laugh if someone did it wrong or did not do it write.

Peer Meditation Excellance post #3

Today me, jade,Candice and Daniel did peer mediation. We told Candice she could not come but she still did.  First we went to the junior playground but there were no problems. So we went onto the Field were most problems are there was a girl that was saying they won´t play with her so we said that maybe we could find one of her other friends for her to play with. So we walked back on the courts and she said "oh look there is my friend" so she went and played with her.
I showed Trust worthy because I will tell Mrs Stinson about Candice tagging along when she was not suppose to. I showed Excellence by helping people in the playground.

Peer Meditation Excellance post #2

Today I had Peer Mediation with Jade. There were some kids playing around the back near the vege patches. Me and Jade went to talk to them about how its out of bounds. They did not know they could play there. We told them they could not play around there. So they went and played on the courts.

 I showed leadership by being Resilient because I didn't give up while helping people.I showed Excellence by turning up even though I wanted to stay at the library with Johanna and Dabok.

I can make links across texts by recognizing connectives or adverbial clauses


In this unit learnt different ways to combined sentences and Make them more better.


A connective is a word that joins 2 sentences together.


An adverbial clause is something that gives us the time,place or action.

leadership blog-Excellance post #2

On Friday my class (Mrs Stinsons) do gardening and cooking. I did gardening this week with Tanika if we are not doing cooking we pair up with someone else to do it with. We also get paired up with 2 little kids each but we all work together. This week we planted cabbage seedlings with James, Alec, Annabelle and Lilly. I showed leadership by showing them how to plant the seedling first so I didn't have to teach them individually. We also took them to see the compost bin and told them some facts and what you should and shouldn't put in the compost bin. I also told them some facts about worms.

After we had finished the planting it was time to go and see the food the cooks had made the made fejoa ice cream and rhubarb topping that we had with the ice cream It was Delicious!

I showed Respect because I respected that they were not the best at planting, I also enguraged them and said they did a good job.

Peer Meditation excellance post #1

On Tuesday, I do Peer Mediation with Jade and Daniel. We walked onto the field (after looking on the courts and playgrounds to) to see if there were any problems. 2 boys came running up to us and said that 2 other boys keeped on wanting to play with them, but they did not wan´t them to. So we asked them what could they do? and 1 of the boys said we could apologise, but some of them did not agree
so I said that maybe the could play with each other just for today and they agreed.

I showed Respect because I respected and did not force them to say sorry I let them do what they wanted to do to fix it.
