Inquiry Graduation/ and future focus

Every Thursday we do inquiry. I am in Troy's graduation inquiry group and I wanted to be in his group because it will be my graduation and I want to make it special. I am in the crafts/decorations and speech group.

To get my ideas for graduation (decorations) I looked on pinterest to get some really cool ideas. After we got I found some cool ideas I showed them to my decorations group and then we tried to put a a modern twist to each craft idea.

At the moment we are also inquiring about the future. In our inquiry groups we are also have been talking about what we are doing in our inquiry groups: (I'm doing graduation), to benefit the future generation at RSS. I think that we are benefiting RSS as we are leaving a unique legacy behind ( we are role models to all the other year levels)

In my graduation group we are thinking outside the box by adding a modern spin on everything and making all the crafts and decoration group's unique. We are trying to come up new ideas as it will leave a unique legacy that all the other RSS students will remember us.

Book Bash Task (quick write).

This week we had to write a story from a different point of view to your own. We had to write a story from a buildings perspective. I wrote about the Auckland sky tower.

I’m the Auckland sky tower, around 328 meters tall. Everything and everyone on the ground is so insignificant. When people climb up the inside of me they tickle my insides. I try to move around but I’m rock solid. My view is breath-taking! To the left I see all the cars zooming across the winding harbour bridge, and to the left I see all the tall buildings but never as tall as me! Into the distance I see the truly captivating sea. Most people say: I’m one of NZ most spectacular tourist attractions under one roof! 

The things I love about be me, is that I get to see people 
fret about bungee jumping of me, like c’mon i’m not that high! 

The consequences of being me is that when it rains the drips make me freezing cold and when there is wind it rushes through me and makes me shiver...

But all and all I am the best building in the world!

2015 T4 Goals

This Term we have been talking a lot more about agency. On Monday we had to go through a sheet of paper that had three columns/tables. Self Managing, Self Directed and Self Agency. We had to highlight gold what we can do really well, without thinking about it. Then we had to highlight pink what we think we need to work on.

I think I am a Self Managing / Self Directed / Self Agentic learner because:
I think that I am an agentic learner because I  complete my tasks to a high standard and can reflect on the goals I am working on 
The goal that I am currently working on is:
I have decided that I am going to be on Self Agentic and in self agentic my goal is to understand my weakness and know who to address them. 
The things I need to do to achieve this goal are
Think about myself more as a learner and when I struggle with something I learn how to work it out. (In other words):  Be a solution seeker.

Book Bash Task (Onomatopeia)

For one of my Book Bash tasks this week I had to write down a list of Onomatopoeia's. I had been taught about Onomatopoeia before but I forgot what an Onomatopoeia was so I had to go online and find out again!

An Onomatopoeia is:
- A word that mimics the sound of an object or action it refers to.
- Or A:  Formation of a word from a sound associated with it's name

Here is my list of Onomatopoeia':
