term 2 reflection

In term 2 I enjoyed having visitors coming to talk to us about what they do for a living and how they became successful. The reason why I enjoyed the visitors coming was because we got free cool prizes and I won one of them, just only one. Another thing I enjoyed about term 2 this year was songwriting there is a group for the year 7’s called the songwriting group and I’m In It and I’m writing a song but It’s a pretty sad song. The reason why I enjoyed songwriting group was because I liked to sing I will usually sing everywhere and that was mainly what I did at home, sing.

This term I didn't enjoy learning fractions because I found it hard and because my least favourite subject at school is maths. Also I didn't enjoy learning word problems because I didn't understand it. It Is easier than fractions but maths is like what I said my least favourite subject so that's probably only the reason why I didn't like it.

Next term I'm going to look forward to inquiry because my great great great grandfather is Japanese and I want to talk about him. I'm looking forward to badminton because last year we had it and it was fun.

News board week 9

Today is a humid weather. I can feel the wind blowing me as if I was dancing. I can hear the beautiful harmony of the birds singing in the trees. I can see some students fooling around like crazy monkeys.
