Choir (Excellence Badge)

Excellence Badge Can-do

Choir

On Friday after I'd put all my things away I went straight to the music room to do choir. Our warm up song was
 Adiemus. We have been practicing our songs without our song books, so that we are ready to sing at the Horncastle Arena, which is next Friday. Mrs Harris usually checks to see if we're all there by taking the roll. She does it after the 9 o'clock bell, because that's when everyone is usually there. Then we sing through to 9.30. Some of us go back to class, but other people go straight to the hall to do Te Reo.

At morning tea Sharna offered to help me do the books in the library. Also Reia and Kyla came in to help. We all put books away and tidied up the shelves ready for the children coming in at lunchtime. Mrs ward was in there to begin with, but she went to the staff room, to have her morning tea, whilst we looked after the library. When she came back the bell had rung, but I stayed in there to say thanks for letting me do extra library duty to earn my excellence badge.

Kapa Haka (Excellence Badge)

Excellence Badge Can-do

Kapa Haka 

On Friday we practiced all five songs ready for when we perform. I think we are going to be performing at the opening of the new library. That's going to be so exciting.

I was reading my sister's Hillmorton news letter and saw that Hoon Hay and Our Lady Assumption schools got invited to their Marae and I also watched their Kapa Haka Cultural Festival performance. 

Technology (Excellence Badge)

Excellence Badge Must-do

Technology

This Tuesday at technology in textiles I made two door stops for my brother and sister so that their doors don't slam shut. They really like it when I make things for them and I like giving them things when I see them after school. I also helped Caity finish off her Star Bucks three part toy. It's good to help other people, because it means I'm still learning.

Kapa Haka (Excellence Badge)

Excellence Badge Can-do

Kapa Haka

Today I had Kapa Haka. We got to choose between three songs and we had to put up our hands for what songs we wanted to sing. In the end we chose to sing Pai Ma and another song, but I'll have to ask Mr Brown or Mrs Baker how to spell it. I think we're practicing for the Light Festival, which I'm looking forward to going to.

Choir (Excellence Badge)

Choir
Today I had choir.  We sang lot's of songs, they were really good songs. I really enjoy doing choir because I get to sing first thing in the morning and it is a really good way to start the day. It's good being part of a group like choir, because I get to sing with my friends and make new friends. Singing makes me feel happy:-)

Technology (Excellence Badge)

Excellence Badge Must-Do

Technology

On Tuesday we went to Lincoln primary school to do technology. When we got to Lincoln we had to take the long way round to get to sewing. It took so long to get there, but we got there in the end. When we put our bags down we walked in with our pencils cases and sat on our seats. Mrs Patterson took the roll and then asked us to thread our sewing machine's so that we could get started and not waste time, when we could be making our three part toy. I did finish making my toy. All I had to do was 
*Hand sew on the top of my toy
*Then I stuffed the toy with stuffing which was very easy to do
*And then I had to cut out a circle the size of a cup, get some white thread and then start sewing on the bottom.
This is my three part toy!
      

Librarian (Excellence Badge)

Librarian

Today I was on librarian. I had a lot of fun at the library because I got out two cool books called Geek Girl and Being Magdalene. Being Magdalene is one of the new books that Mrs Ward only got to show us today in class and the Geek Girl book is a really good series of books that I've been reading. I got was the second book called Model Misfit. When I was doing librarian we had a little girl called Kadence. She is in year 1 and she had come with Sharna. She wanted to look at the I Spy book, so Monique and I played I spy with Kadence, it was really fun.
