Athletics day 2016

Yesterday the whole of RSS went up to Massey for athletics day. Here is a reflection of how my day went. 

Reflection: 
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.
