Conscience

My Reflection:

During Religous Education, I have learnt about what a conscience is.
Conscience is the part of me that enables me to judge whether something is right or wrong.

My Maths Strategy

During maths last year I learnt to solve problems like 61+?=132

61+9= 70
70+30=100
100+32=132
32+30=62
62+9=71

71+61=132

17+__ =61
17 to 20=3
20 to 60=40
60 to 61=1
40+3+1=44

True Colours


I’ve performed in front of an audience. Bigger than my school. But that wasn’t the issue. The issue was that they'll be staring at me. I was the singer. I kept fidgeting. I guess it was just nerves. The number of performances passed and every time they did, I'd fidget even more. I knew that Kahlanie and his group were before me.

One of our M.C.’s (Robertanna) announced us to the eagerly awaiting crowd." Now its time for Elizabeth and Anita!!!”. My stomach lurched nervously in response. I stood up. (Or tried to) And entered the stage. My knees trembled nervously.


“This is a song about Perseverance” I said timidly. Elizabeth and I exchanged glances. Before the song started she gave me a look which signalised ‘time to start’. I managed to get some sound out. Before I knew it I started dancing to the beat. Throughout the song I became confident enough to smile and sing without difficulty.

Once our song drifted to and end. Once I've finished singing I announced our next song. “Our next song is I’m Yours. I chose this song to sing for fun.” I said a little bit confident this time.

My Swimming Highlight

My highlight of swimming was when we took turns to swim freely through the water. It felt nice to put my face in the water and feel the coolness of the water refreshes my face. I t felt proud when I could do what our instructor said. I look forward to learn more swimming skills.

Athletics

Friday the 18th of march. Athletics day. I never liked athletics. Not until I was one of the leaders. Excitement and nervousness Were the dominant emotion inside me. Just looking at everyone was like reading a huge sign that says ‘BRING IT ON’.


Racing against the fastest girls that I know was so nerve-wracking. Elizabeth, Tokilupe, and Fetuli and Emelia were my opponents. Mrs Pole banged the two pieces blocks together.They all ran so fast they looked like a blur. I just jogged. Not caring if I came last or first. my team cheered for me encouragingly. unsurprisingly I came last.

Hundred metre races were next. The fittest people only raced. The races came and they went just like the first. None of the competitors looked like they could carry on. But they were all so eager to win.

The chanting competition was very embarrassing. We were all to confident to notice that we only had a minute to do our chants. my team the kiwis had 12 chants to do. It was so scary especially when we told everyone we were going to win. We...... Came.... last. I was to sad to even talk to the others. But thinking about the team work we did made me feel like an actual leader. (eve\though we were the noisiest yet the most energetic team) :D
