Personal Goals for this Year

My Personal Goals - 2014  

My achievement I was most proud of  last year  in the classroom was bonding with all my classmates because that's what made the class and the year the best.  

The thing I was most proud of last year outside of the classroom was having the courage to stand up in front of the whole school and sing.

In reading my learning goal is to improve in my reading level.

To achieve this goal I need to read more books and make sure that I can understand it and that its not too hard or too easy.

In writing  my goal is to be able to write a decent paragraph with detail and a variety of different sentence starters.

To achieve this goal I need to plan my writing and make sure I proof read it.

In Maths my goal is to be able to answer basic fact questions in under 3 seconds.

The learning area I think I need to improve in most is maths because it is not exactly my strongest subject in school.

In my learning my goal this term is to  show ‘Caring’, by not leaving anyone behind and helping people and not to be mean.

My goal for this year around the classroom is to manage my time better and be nice to my classmates. ( even if they are really, really annoying.) (behaviour/self management)

My goal for this year around the school is to be more involved in things like sports and stuff like that.

My parents goal for me this Term is to get the highest report marks I've ever had. Which means all 5’s.


W.A.L.T add detail to a sentence and use more interesting vocab.

* Sluggishly walking around the house, I felt anxious and excited all at the same time, knowing that school was starting soon.

* I was feeling very gleeful as I bolted to school trying to remind myself of my 8 X tables.

* Feeling anxious, I walked into street crossing my fingers hoping to have awesome teachers in an awesome class. (and lucky enough I did)

Family Fun Time

Does your family get together to celebrate stuff? Well my family do, and on Waitangi day we gathered at my Uncles house to celebrate two recent birthdays and to have a BBQ.

As we arrived, one by one, the ones who were there early, got bored of waiting, so they decided to make up a game for us to play. My cousin’s  tied a couple of ropes together to make it long. Then they folded the rope in half to find the middle to tie a ribbon to it. Irene then introduced to everyone “ If you want to play tug of war? Gather round ”
Getting right in it, we had teams first but everyone got bored and so we had 1 on 1’s. When it came to my turn took two deep breaths, unsure if i was going to win or not. Looking up to the other side of the rope my cousin Piecca was standing there pumped up knowing that she is the undefeated and always will be.

“ 1, 2 ,3 PULL ! “ my cousin shouted, completely lost and in my own world, I quickly snapped out of hearing people chant “ PI-E-CCA, PI-E-CCA, “. I tugged and pulled and put all my weight on it, the next thing I knew people were chanting my name.

5 games later, people got sick of me winning so I gave up to play on the trampoline. Later on when I finished playing I stop to watch the rest of the tug of war challenges. Only then did I realise that all of the people I versed were not only older than me but was bigger and ( is meant to be ) stronger than I am.

All in all, it was a fun day and hopefully will happen again in the future.
