Term 1 reflection

Term 1 Reflection 2014

My highlights this term would have to be... Getting to meet some new friends in the Intermediate block . Because somehow its not easy for someone  to find a friend in a snap! Learning new maths equations has got to be the best highlight for this term. Participating in the senior Te Reo , has got to be the most memorable highlights. I get to learn the daily Karakia and the mihi.

I have made improvements/progress in…  Writing , Maths and  Te Reo.

I know this because…. Mrs Lagitupu helps me on correcting my writing, and from there I can see my mistakes . So next time I am writing I can remember my mistakes and make a good story! I don’t how I got better at maths. But every time we are learning a new strategy , last year I didn’t understand anything - but now I understand some strategies. I am improving on Te reo because , I can hear myself getting my pronunciation better and better!

I still need to work hard to improve my… Reading and P.E

I know this because…

Suddenly I have lack of effort in reading, I can see that my reading skills are getting lower. I need to improve P.E because I am not getting fit enough.

I am most proud of my efforts to... work hard during out or in school times.

My 3 main goals for Term 2 will be...

- Finishing things off properly
- Having a good attitude towards work
- Improving Subjects!

Fiafia reflection.

Fiafia is one of the greatest experiences of the year.  Why? Because we get to engage in other cultures, get together and meet new friends. April 9th marked a crucial day.  It was Fiafia! Of course it had some really memorable highlights. 

One of the greatest highlights was obviously performing. By the time we had to get changed, I think our outfits were the hardest to put on in my opinion. It was very tiring. When we got ready we had to put on the lava - lava  around our body and cover it with a Tupenu (a type of garment that goes around your waist).  The most fun part was having slippery oil all around your body .

While watching other performances we mostly enjoyed seeing the Samoan senior group. Their dance really got me hooked.  Just right after the Tongan juniors performed it was our turn. 

As we got up onto the stage I could hear lots of cheers , and it made me  more and more shy. From the start of our dance to the end I mostly enjoyed all of it. As we went off I was really hungry so  I got a Otai (watermelon drink)and some steak rolls  to eat with Ana . It was amazing. We enjoyed most of the dances, but especially our food.

Overall, Fiafia was a really great experience. I really hope that there is another Fiafia next year. I would give a rating for fiafia of 1,000,000/ out of 10. My favourite highlight was performing. The worst part, was watching the last few performances  because it was so sad seeing the Fiafia almost finish. But mostly I really really had a great time.  Thanks to the people that set up Fiafia and have been hosting it too.
