Term 2 Reflections

Term 2 was a very exciting and busy term. With a heap of sports to an educational trip to the Careers Expo in Greenlane.This term was a fun term with lots of excitement.

Firstly the speeches which were very scary and exciting at the same time. I found it hard to choose a topic but in the end I ended up with an illegal job called the Black Market. This topic was not very hard and I found it easy to memorise and it just took me one que card to do it.

Secondly the amazing trip to the Careers Expo in Greenlane.What a trip it was looking at all the different careers that surrounded us. It was all amazing but I only went to a few that really interested me.

Thirdly our self defence class. Kicks and punches were the things we learnt all used in different ways like shin kick, backward shin, stance, side kick to knee, hammer hits, window wiper and much more. It was a very interesting class with our helpful instructor Mandi.We learnt heaps of defence ways and techniques to protect and save ourselves.

Now the Matariki Festival. Practice at lunchtime and spare time. All classes in our school practiced for our very own Matariki Festival. We had to get students to do on stage challenges and we had to do a class item for everyone to see. The winners of the Matariki festival was our class room 1.

Lastly the school Careers Expo.Such an exciting event and confusing as well. We worked in groups of 3s or 4s.We all had different careers to research and present. We had to work hard on our display boards to to make them look creative and informative and get it ready for the actual Careers Expo on Wednesday 13 July 2011.

Wasn’t this an exciting term! It went really fast. Although it was a very busy term I enjoyed it and I had a lot of fun with my friends and learnt a lot. I am quite excited for next term to see what interesting stuff it will have for us!
