Social (Take Two)

This week I am writing about our school social we had last week.  We had a social because we were fundraising for the year 8’s camp.

Fist pumping in the air, music and bizarre dancing“Yes” you may be asking Pt England’s very own social.  Last Thursday night, there was a school social held for our Year 7’s and 8’s in the hall.

Things we did at Social were awesome competitions, wicked dancing, extremely loud music and delicious food.  My favourite out of all of them was The Dougie Showdown it was Nezinli and Mary but, unfortunately there could only be one winner and that winner was... Nezinli.

Social’s are absolutely good moments be cause for some year 8’s we won’t all be going to the same college and it might be the last moments we will all cherish together.  Like me most of my friends are moving to Australia and only two of my best friends are staying.

I liked every single moment about the social it was absolutely fun and I highly recommend you to create your own social one day.

Xtramaths (Take Two)

This week we have been assigned to write about something so, I'm writing about Xtramaths.  Well, if you want to know more about Xtramaths or perhaps want to learn more about it read on PLEASE!

Xtramaths, is an online program that Room 18 has been using since the beginning of this year.  It was extremely difficult when I first started using it, however I am now (8 months later)experiencing the benefits of this challenging program.  I'm now on my third account and am able to recall all of my basic facts in 1.5 seconds.

Xtramaths has helped me an incredible amount and I’m absolutely positive that it will help you too.  It starts off with 3 second Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.  Then a little bit faster with 2 seconds and then extremely hard with 1.5 seconds but, in no time you will finish it thats a promise!

One thing I like about Xtramaths is that is has helped me so much. I highly recommend that Xtramaths will help you like it's helped me and I think it's really fun too!

Achieving my goals Take Two

This week I’m writing about Achieving my goals.

Managing to achieve all my goals is a really hard because to me it takes like 1 million years to finish my tasks. When I’m not sitting next to my friends I actually focus on my work but when I’m anywhere close to my friends I seem to be off task and have a little chit-chat with the people beside me. So this term I am going to try my best with a great attitude to achieve all my goals. 

We have a lot of tasks to be finished in a day. Tasks like XtraMaths, Maths Whizz are the ones I get done and the individuals like Reading Eggs and Writing are the ones where I'm off task.  At the end of the day I really have to push myself because if Writing and Reading Eggs don’t get done I’ll teach myself to not finish my work off properly.

Sometimes we have a lot of work to do but we get through well... sometimes. By managing my time wisely I will be able to complete my work and school will be fun learning environment.

Thank You to my loving friend Tyler J for proof reading and editing my work.
