Assess web


Quiddage. A time where you can buy things. It is no normal market. Everything you need is in one place. Soup, Pool, Sling shot, Sherbet, Smootheeeeeeeeeeeese, magnets and sour cream (If only we'd opened!!!)

I take out about two hundred snidges for Quiddage each Friday. You DON'T want to miss out, trust me. In Quiddage, you can make yourself a routine; Soup, sherbet, pool, smoothies.

I now have three hundred and fifty snidges (QZealand money) in my bank account. It's not a lot, my business never opened.

I loved L@ Soupers. They had great service and great soup! Only the senior school does Quiddage, It originated in QZealand, but "Qmanawatu" started doing it too. I'm not too unhappy about this, it just proves what a good idea Quiddage is!

I'm proud to be a QZealander and know that I come from the place where the amazing Quiddage was born.

Athletics; High jump

"Go! Your turn" Yells TC. Uh-oh! Let's just say I'm not the sportiest person in the world. I run, jump, and prepare for the bar to hit my foot. Nothing. I feel my feet land on the hot mat. I made it! How? I feel dazed. I jump off the mat and sit in a line on the itchy grass. The line of success. I keep thinking of the moment.

But I'm not supposed to be good at high jump! So I stand up, wait my turn and when it is my turn, I run, jump and prepare myself for the bar to hit my foot. Before is probably just luck. I can't make it this time! But I stand corrected! I made it! But the next time I don't. I've been trying to convince myself to this day that I just got lucky in my first two jumps.

Riverdale school. Farewell!

Riverdale school has been awesome and I can't believe how fast six years has gone. I will miss all my friends especially Kate! My favourite teacher was TC there's no one quite like her!! I'll really miss Karina too. My best memory was "Dance NZ made" a dance competition which Riverdale won for our age group. My year six year was definately my best because I got so many job oportunities and P.E shed was really fun. Camp was awesome I liked palm grove best because it encouraged me to try things I havn't imagined doing in my wildest dreams. Goodbye to all my friends and teachers I'll miss you!!

Maths explorers video

WALT: Solve a problem using multiplication and division.

SR: I think I did well. I had to try the question again because
I got the wrong answer at first but I know where I went wrong
and I was successful after that.

I'm very proud to get 30/50 for my knowledge test,for last time I got eleven.

My feedback for my PI

You had some interesting effects in your PowerPoint, but it didn't hide the fact that you didn't have a lot of information. Perhaps you need to choose a topic next time that you can feel excited about, because when you are doing work that you love, you do amazing things. I look forward to seeing improvement next time. Start now.
