Inquiry Relection

For inquiry this term, Rhys and I are creating part of a time bank.

A time bank is when someone spends an hour teaching someone else something, the person getting taught will lose an hour and the person teaching will gain an hour.

I think I am working at relational on the solo rubric, because I know how to plan a time bank and how to set it up. I still need help with how to send an email to all the year 5 and 6s. I can also teach others how to be a responsible citizen.
I am heading towards extended abstract because i am passing on my new knowledge to others. Personally I think we haven't done all of the strategies in extended abstract.

My next steps to get to extend abstract is to use several strategies to be a responsible citizen in our community. These strategies include seeking feedback, getting a wider range of people involved, and go beyond the schooling community. I will also need to learn when to use them.

I am proud of how far we have gone with our project, because when we started I didn't think we would complete the task. I am also proud of how I followed instructions from team members.

Responsible citizen

Including others
If this quality was missing, then there would be no friendships.
Including others is important because it allows us to make friends,
for example if somebody asked Maggie if they could play she would say “yes.”

Helping others
If this quality is missing, then people will feel lonely and sad.
Qualities like these are important because if nobody helped each other, then nobody would learn the different ideas and qualities each other holds.
For example a teacher’s job is to help kids learn.

Self management
If this quality was missing, then everybody might hurt each other
this quality is important because it helps us not to act out,
for example Olivia I have never seen her do anything bad at school.

Participating
If this quality was missing, then nobody would do anything.
Participating is important because it allows us to meet new people, try new things, and work as a team. For example Gabby will almost always participate in something she knows she wants to do.

Cat post



Words that describe a cat
Fluff ball
Bird catcher
Puss puss
Comfort cushion
Furry therapist
Bed hogger
Dogs have owners, cats have staff
There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast in the morning
Meow means woof in cat
Escape artist
A much loved family member
All knowing grumpy cat
In and out cat
Something that won't drink from a water bowl but will drink from the shower

what I go hard at

Gymnastics
I can't wait to get onto the floor and jump into my routine.
I swing, catch, leap, spin, everything.
My mind fizzes with happiness as I cartwheel across the floor.
The concrete floor catches my feet, prancing off the mat.
Another gym day done.

Ko Rachael ahau


I am a sleak ginger bike speeding up to start learning
I am a palace full of sparkling gems
I am brown seal burmese kitten, kind and friendly
I am a raspberry sweet but sometimes
I am a smooth cheesecake with smooth edges
I am a warm kitty-cat sweater
