OUR OLYMPIC MASCOT

CHARLIE AND I MADE A MASCOT AT SCHOOL FOR THE NEXT OLYMPICS. I CHOSE AN ELEPHANT BECAUSE IT REPRESENTS MY COUNTRY, INDIA AND WHO WE ARE. IN THE OLDEN DAYS  INDIANS WENT ON ELEPHANTS WHERE EVER THEY WANTED TO GO.  

WE CHOSE TO MAKE A MASCOT ELEPHANT OUT OF PAPER MACHE. HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS.   

YOU WILL NEED:
  • NEWSPAPER
  • BALLOONS
  • PAINT
  • GLUE
  • TOILET PAPER ROLLS
THIS IS WHAT YOU DO:
  • YOU FIRST BLOW A BALLOON
  • THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO RIP UP PAPER INTO SMALL STRIPS  
  • GLUE THE NEWSPAPER ON TO THE BALLOON SHAPE
  • YOU NEED 4 LAYERS OF NEWSPAPER TO MAKE IT THICK.  
  • THEN WE LEAVE IT TO DRY
  • THEN WE CUT 2 TOILET PAPER ROLLS IN HALF AND THEN WE USED  TOILET PAPER ROLLS FOR THE LEGS    
  • THEN WE PAINTED THE BODY OF THE ELEPHANT GREY

I FELT LIKE I WANTED TO HIT PEOPLE BECAUSE PEOPLE KEEP BREAKING MY ELEPHANT.

I TRIED TO USE MY IGNORING MUSCLES BY BEING ABSORBED IN MY LEARNING, PERSEVERING AND NOTICING.

What i find hard was to have even sides on my flag, and also designing the koru’s,to go around the outside of my flag.  
The best thing i find easy was to design the actual flag. I find this to be a lot of fun and i had to be creative. Colouring in was really enjoyable.


I used my managing  muscle to concentrate on my project without being distracted by other children.

Paralympics

My favorite part was when we played scooter foot ball and what I liked abut the scooter foot ball was when we had to hit the ball with the scooter's and we had to score a goal with the scooter's.
 


What I did not like was that when we had to play the Crawling Race because we had to go on our legs.

P.E RFLECTION

Blind throw  



What went wall for me was that I scored in my fist throw and I thought that I was not even going to score.


What did not go wall for me was when we had to underarm throw.

What I have to improve on is to practice doing underarm throwing.

P.E Reflection Blind throw

What went well was that I won all 3 games when playing blind shot . I was very nervous because I thought I wouldn’t get any in but one. I  tried not to get distracted and focus more on what more I'm doing. I need to improve  concentrating more.

My Report Rrflection

Report Reflection for Mid Year

How have the learning muscles helped you with your learning in Maths and/or Literacy and in one other learning area for example Matariki, P.E, Art or Camp?

  • No bling
  • Options = Maths & Literacy plus one other listed
  • Maths or Literacy plus one other listed (e.g. maths and your choice; literacy and your choice)

                                                                  
I managed my  distractions sometimes in writing because I wasn't talking to my friends. My friends were talking to me I would use my ignoring muscle and keep working. For camp we had to design and make a drive in movie car.  I used my planning muscle to help me design my car and then I used my resourcefulness to find all the parts like cardboard, cellotape, lights to make my car.  I had to persevere to find all the parts especially the wheels as when I went to get my wheels they were all gone.  Luckily Jayden had some extra wheels so I got some of his.

Cinderella ran as fast as she could and she rain to her house and she locked the door. she went to her room. The big bad wolf said let me in i what to eat you open the door. Cinderella shouted out to the wolf no i will not open the door. The wolf tricked  Cinderella by pretending to walk away but instead he hid behind a tree.  Cinderella  opened the door and woosh the wolf grabbed  Cinderella. Cinderella stomped on the wolfs foot and she ran away and she bumped into a policeman she never steal again.
