Today for Writing we worked with Miss Brett and Mrs Linda.We worked as a group on our Story Pyramid. My story pyramid is about Harry Potter, I had to write a Description, Problem, Setting, Three  Events and come up with a Solution. I had fun working with Miss Brett and creating a story pyramid. 

Day Two Camp Diary

Today I had fun because I went on the high ropes. I felt excited when I first climbed up the ladder. Mrs Linda and Mrs  Anderson helped me put on my helmet and the harness. My hair was too long so it took a long time to put the helmet on, Mrs Anderson was happy when I climbed and was taking lots of photos. I felt even more excited when I walked across the beam.
I also did archery, it was fun and Mrs Linda had fun too. I was better than Mrs Linda because I shot the balloon.

We did adventure activities. I liked them because it was fun and I worked with my team. We had fun singing the songs.

Dance group A

This morning at dance we were learning about making geometric shapes with our bodies. We began by doing our own warm ups then Sanujan and Freeman instructed us and we all copied their warm up. We then watched a you tube clip Sadeck x Ammar, geometric variables. We then had to plan our own short dance using angles and shapes with our bodies. It was difficult to stay connected with my partner when we were trying to make shapes.

Dance group A

Today Dance group A all did our warm up before our learning. It was fun being the teacher with Magenta and Mrs Linda. I liked how all the kids and Mrs Anderson did the moves we made up. After that we made square, triangle and circle shapes with our bodies. We learned that there are two ways to move. Free flow is when your body is like jelly and bound flow is when you move like a robot. I liked making the twisted shapes because we kept laughing. Dance was fun.

My favourite  was the Greedy Blocks challenge, for this we had to find out the number of blocks each person collected by reading the problem and placing a block in front of each persons name, for example Mary had half as many blocks as John, so we had to work out how many blocks John had. The people in my group was Zahra, Florence, Mataio, Ofa and me

Today for dance the year 8's had to create a warm up routine. First we talked about why it is important to warm up before exercising. One of the reasons is to help prevent injuries by stretching the muscles and  gradually increasing  our heart rate. We then worked in pairs to create our own five minute warm up. It was lots of fun coming up with ideas and choosing which stretch or exercise to include. We drew sketches and made a plan to follow, then shared our routine with another pair who gave us feedback.
I enjoyed dance and am looking forward to our next lesson.

We had to take one more or less card and then add or take away an astronaut or a martian, the first person to get to the top of the rocket is the winner. I was the Astronaut and I won the game

Reduce Reuse Recycle

This is my DLO about how we can Reduce, Reuse and Recycle our waste. It is important to think about how we dispose of rubbish and the things we can do to Reuse and Recycle our waste. We should think twice before throwing things out because they could be used for something else or given to someone else to use.
