What was the most enjoyable part of the my day/ why: The most enjoyable part of my day is properly getting out there happy and coming back in getting second place in discis. 

What am I really proud of/why: I am proud of coming second in discis and 4th in the 800m sprint
And why because that way I know that I'm getting better and better every year.

What was the most challenging part/why: Properly the 800m sprint because I haven't been practising running as much as I should be so I had to try really hard to get in the top 5 but I am proud of myself.

My goal for next time is/why: My goal for next time is to properly do better in high jump because I know I am good at it but I wasn't at my best.

Market Day

Description: This year RSS has decided to do a market day. Market day is when when people can make or buy things to make a product that you can sell. But you must be careful because everything you use has a price. In poutama we had to get into a group of 3 your group each gets a $20 budget to spend. I got into a group with 2 girls called Charlotte and Phoebe. All the groups had to choose who they want to be their coach, my group choose Elly straight away. Next we went online and research some things that was possible to make. Phoebe pointed out some notebbooks with covers on them. And then that's what my group decided on doing. To make our product we decided to buy 3b1 Notebooks, so we had a look on some websites to see if we could find some really cheap notebooks. And on one we could buy then for 69c. But then a couple days later we found some for 39c. We bought 30 notebooks which cost $11.?c and then we had enough money to buy the rest of the things we need. To make the covers we used an app called pic collage and its when you can creat cool backgrounds or just create something cool. Well we made a whole lot of covers with different colors themes and quotes and they looked so amazing. To print out an A4 colored piece of paper it cost 10c.
Any thing we used from our tote tray was free. So we used my glue stick to stick the covers onto the booklets. We thought that since we had quite a lot of money left we could stick some jeriseal on the top to make the covers nice and shiny. Our stall got placed in the hall with a whole lot of other stalls.
Each of notebooks were $2:00. We got given a float which is some spare money in case you need to give a person some change. We sold out within 15 minutes which was awesome. My group was all super proud of all the work that we have done and our finishing products.

Olympic Art

Rm:12 has been working on some Olympic art work when we choose a sport in the Olympics and decide a a4 piece of paper into 4 big squares. We practiced drawing the logo of the sport we choose in our writers note book. I chose 4 coloures to paint my picture in and practiced it many times but in pencil. When it was the really thing on the real piece of paper I grabbed my draft to copy the picture after I drawed the logo of hand ball which is the sport that I choose I started painting it I made sure each four coloures were on all 4 squats.

Evaluation: I think I did very at the painting and made sure I didn't go outside the lines. Next time I could do the vivid out lines a little bit more accurately.

Here is a picture of my art work as the finishing product.

Drunk wards path art

Erik Carl inspired us all with amazing pop art. We are doing something like that for our calendar art, we decided to do drunk wards path. Of course we need some Panekiretanga to do this kind of art. So we all showed excellence while we were doing this kind of art. First we got three white pieces of paper and did random painting all over them we are put so much effort and texture. Next we got to more pieces of paper and this time we did whatever patterns we wanted but in pencil. We got a plastic square and we had to draw a quatre circle on it so we still had some of the circle left. Then we used that square to cut out all of our peices of paper. After that day the next morning we got to choose what kind of patterns we would like to do, there was a whole verity to choose from. 

Evaluation: I did very well at cutting out the squars and making the outlines of the patterns. Next time I could have used a variety of colors and not just coloures that look the same, also to make the art a little bit more busy with the coloures.

Discovery Time Week 2

Description: This week I continued on making my top. Today Charlotte H and I decided to pair up and make an outfit ( a top which I'm already making ) and then Charlotte H is making the hat and together we are both making the Skirt/Pants we haven't decided yet. After I finished the stitching on the top I tried it on Charlotte but sadly it did not fit so an other Charlotte the teacher helped me come up with an idea so it would fit around for tummy. We said that I would stich some more fabric on the sides of the top and then they would go around her tummy and then if THAT fits around her then I would stich those together but that will have to wait till next week.

Today I was successful by: Getting lots of things done.

I didn't have any thing that didn't go my way because it was fun and awesome.
