Athletics Reflection 2017

2017 Athletics Reflection

Write your reflection on your participation, effort and performance in the 2017 Athletics competitions.

You could reflect on these questions.
  1. How well did I use a growth mindset to stay positive when the competition got tough?
  2. Did I manage to achieve my athletics goals and why/why not?
  3. In what ways did I represent my House well in the competition?
  4. What did I do well and how do I know?
  5. What was challenging and how do I know?
  6. What am I most proud of and why?

Start your writing here:
We started off at long jump with Mr. Muller. It took a long time to get started because some people were being rude and not listening. So when we did get started I was second. I didn’t get much time to see people’s tactics, so i just went. On my first jump I got 2.74 metres. That was the highest so far. (Because I was the second person that had gone) After a little while waiting it was my turn again. I got a shorter run up because I thought that would help, and it did! I got 23 more centimetres more than my first jump.

Next we had Discus. Our instructor was Mr. Brown. First we had to wait for about 12 minutes because he still had half of his group left to do their last shot. When it was finally our turn I hit first place easily and stayed there for 14 more turns until someone overtook it. In my second turn I got worse than my first throw because someone nudged me before I threw ):

Then we had morning tea. Straight after that we had sprints. I didn’t run because I hurt my back the week before. After that, we had high jump. It didn’t start off very well, because I didn’t get across on my first jump. But then I got it and jumped all the way up to 1.6 metres.

The next day we had shot put. That was our last activity in athletics. There were three lines to mark our shots, I got just on the third line. But it counted as 2 points, not three. My second shot was nearly the same. It was all so close.

Self awareness report

Oakland School Learner Qualities
Be Self Aware (Excellence Value): SML tasks

Be self aware
I know my learning goals.
I know how I learn best.
Think about and reflect on:
  • How have I been managing my time with completing my SML Tasks?
  • How well have I been completing them?
  • Have I been completing my MUST Dos each week?
  • Have I been organised enough to complete bonus tasks?

What is my learning goal?
IALT manage my time well so I complete all my “MUST Do” SML Tasks each week
What has been going well?
Mathletics because I have been getting my fifteen hundred points every week.
What have I been learning to do to get the tasks done?
Use my time wisely and not always sit next to my friends.
Which tasks have I completed well?  Why?  
I complete blogging most week because the teacher talks about them and then we do them. They also aren’t too hard to do.
Which tasks have been challenging?  Why?
Writing, reading, and maths, because it isn’t just one task there can be multiple tasks throughout the week and you need to spend more time on them than other SML tasks.
What are some other bonus tasks I would like to do?
I currently like all the bonus SML tasks as they are, but I would like to have SSR as well.
My next step is if I need any help with SML tasks I don’t just not do it, I ask a buddy or a teacher. Also I should spend more time at home completing my SML’s

Art Attack

WALT: Create artist inspired artwork

Artist: Raewyn Harris

I learnt to draw a neat koru in chalk and create patterns to make a neat piece of artwork. I used videos on youtube to help me with the koru and the patterns. I looked at art that Raewyn Harris had created to get some ideas.

I experimented with colours and chose colours that work well together. I chose complementary colours so that they would work well together. Complementary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel.

My next step is to do more colours and neater patterns.

Here is a photo of my art -
