 My Reflection
I was learning how to ride a bike.  They taught us how to use hand signals, and improve our bike skills and also taught us safety when we were on the road.  I found it hard to do an figure eight, if your wandering what a figure eight is than its basically you ride through two-cones like a figure eight.  My next step is to improve on my figure eight.

Bike Skills

Bike Skills
On Wednesday room 29 went to the field to do Bike Skills.  When we got there and met Keri and Satali.   After that our team (Team Pepperoni Pizza) was first to get a helmet again, followed by other three teams.  After that we got our bikes, and there were still not enough bikes for our group again, but this time I did not share a bike with anyone.

First of all we had to line up behind the cones again, but the setup faced downhill Kelly said that we didn't have to work so hard because it was going downhill then she said that we were practising to brake, but this time it was four bikers at once instead of two bikers, after we finished we moved to a different course.

When we got there, there were only two obstacles, my group (Team Pepperoni Pizza) had to combine with the other team (IMMR's) so we were one big group that's what the other groups had to do as well.

For this obstacle we had to go through two cones that were called 'Gates' and these were setup in a zig zag, but this time only two riders went, after when we finished we had to ride to the back of the line, after we had one lap of free ride, but when we finished we had to ride along this squashed fire hose, someone asked Kelly were she got it from, and she said her brother was a Fireman, I tried but I went off track a couple of times.

Finally, we finished we had to put our bikes were they came from, and put our helmets back were they belong then we fetched our hats and went back to class.

The Three Little Ninjas

My Reflection
I was learning to write a fractured fairy tale and I did this with Mauriora.  We wrote about The Three Little Pigs but instead of The Three Little Pigs we wrote about The Three Little Ninjas and the Big Fat Wolf, we also had to include paragraphing. I thought this was fun because we could make it into our point of view.  My next step is to add more detail and better describing words to my sentences.

My Reflection
I was learning about ways people speak.  In this reading task there are four more other mini task in this task.  Firstly we had to read the story Little Red Riding Hood and find better words than said.  For the second task we were finding five words from a list and explaining to them what each of these words meant.  The third task was that we had to read a Fairy tale that was on display and find other words than said.  And the final task was to finish each ten sentences with other words instead of said.  My next step is to have a better understanding of this task.

Bike Skills

Bike Skills
On Wednesday Room 29 went to the field to do bike skills. We were led by Keri and Satali.  We had been learning to keep safe on the bike.

We were split into four groups.  One group was called team party animals.  Another team was called the green fire dragons, the other team was called the marshmallow mountain riders, and finally my group the team pepperoni pizza!!!

So first our group was first to get a bike followed by the other three teams.  My bike color was blue, then when we were lining up, there were not enough bikes for my group, so I volunteered to share my bike, so then ended up taking my bike and I has to share with Aaron's bike.

First we put on our helmet and practiced using our brakes, we had to ride to the end of the cones and then brake and put our feet down at the red cones.  Then we tried using hand signals, first we had to ride our bike to the end and wave our hand when Keri waved her hand.

When we bike skills was nearly finish we got free time!!! we get to ride around the field twice.  Since I was sharing with Aaron.  Aaron get to go twice first while I had to go twice last.  I felt great riding in free time and it was quite fun.  It wasn't hard at all.

Thumbelina- Language Features

My Reflection
I was learning to identify adjectives, adverb and simile.  Tanzee and I found the easiest to find was the adjective because there were adjectives everywhere in Thumbelina.  Tanzee and I found the hardest to find is the simile because the story Thumbelina there are barely any simile in the whole entire story.  My next step is to look at the language feature.

Determining Credibility

My Reflection
I was learning to determine credibility.  Mauriora and I found out what makes a site reliable or what doesn't make a site reliable.  We had to answer all these questions about these two website that we had to research. I found this tricky because when we needed to find the answer for the questions, I had to go back and fourth
to the website and back, it was pretty annoying, plus the question were hard.  My next step is to get a better understanding of the question.

Term 2 Week 7

My recount 
Yesterday I did a paragraphing workshop with Mrs Melville.  I learnt that a paragraph is like a hamburger there is a introduction, topic, body and a conclusion.  Then she showed us a part of a book review and where we should put a paragraph because there were no paragraphs in it.  So what we had to do was fine where the paragraph ends.  And that is the end of the workshop.  I found the workshop fine it was okay.  I did the workshop at room 29.  I did this workshop because I needed some help on paragraph. Next time I hope have a better understanding at paragraphing.
