Personal Goals For 2014

My achievement I was most proud of last year in the classroom was bonding with all my classmates because  it made learning more fun because we were able to work with anyone.

The thing I was most proud of last year outside of the classroom was coming 1st in High Jump for the school athletics because I have never really accomplished anything like that before.

In reading my learning goal is to get higher grades. To achieve this goal I need make sure to read books properly and have more specific answers.

In writing  my goal is to obviously get better at it.  To achieve this goal I need to
set my writing out properly and add much more detail.

In Maths my goal is to get better at my basic facts and answer them under then 3 seconds. To  achieve this goal I need to practice, practice, practice.

The learning area I think I need to improve in most is maths. I love maths but sometimes I just don’t really understand it. To improve I’m going to start using maths whizz, xtra maths, and make sure to always ask for help when I stuck.

In my learning my goal this term is to show ‘Caring’ to not just my classmates but everyone in my school.

My goal for this year around the classroom is to have a better attitude towards learning and stay on task.
My goal for this year around the school is to be a awesome, supportive and helpful house captain for Takitimu.

My parents goal for me this Term is to stay focused on school and make sure to give everything a good shot.

Writing Sample

After hours of traveling in the car we finally made it to our destination point, “ The Campgrounds of  Whananaki ”. Hopping out of the car I quickly set up my tent preparing myself for the many camp disasters to come.

As drips of sweat ran down it was the perfect time to get a tan, because there was literally nothing else to do. Unable to talk or move I laid patiently waiting for idea to pop into my head. Full of energy my cousin yelled excitingly “ EVERYONE GET UP AND PUT YOURS TOGS ON, WE'RE GOING TO THE SURF BEACH”.Excited and hypo I quickly rushed to my tent and popped on my togs. Arriving at the beach as fast I could dropped everything I had and hopped in the water.

As I was just about to dip my feet in the water, I spotted something big and brown. I thought I was hallucinating, but in that split second I heard yelling from a distance away “ GET OUT OF THE WATER SHARK,SHARK”. Frightened and shocked I leaped like a frog out of the water and ran as fast as I could.

Running up to my family to spread the news, no one believed me. To make sure that what I saw was a shark I sat on the beach for hours just waiting for it to return. Finally afters waiting for 3 hours I spotted it again. My family ran down to the beach, shocked and surprised everyones eyes bulged making them look like they had just got the beating. In shock my mum said to me “ WERE DEFINITELY NOT COMING HERE NEXT YEAR! ”.

W.A.L.T :

Eager to start the day I rolled out of bed and cheerfully got ready for school. 

Feeling sleepy and drowsy I lazily dragged myself into the kitchen to have breakfast. 

Sluggishly walking into school, I was excited!
