Monday Discovery Time

Description: Every Monday in Poutama and Poutokomauwa, we do this thing called Discovery Time. Discovery Time is were we have lots of choices of activates to Discover more on.

My activity:
I chose to do sketching/drawing.

Whats was hard about my activity:
The hard thing was trying to perfect my picture and copy all of the right things from the picture I was coping from.

What I liked about my activity:
I really liked the fact that I could keep on trying and trying and then in the end be happy with something I tried really hard to do.

Another thing I have been working on is sewing. For sewing I have been working on a pillow. I didnt finish how I wanted it to, but I was still happy with it because I really tried.

The hard thing about sewing (for me):
The hard thing for sewing is trying not to prick yourself with the needle. Its kind of impossible to not prick yourself, but you an try!

What I liked about sewing:
I really liked the fact that it was just really fun to do and I could just laugh when I pricked myself, and trying to make a pillow is very fun!

Monday Discovery Time.

Description: Today in school we did this thing called Discovery time. Discovery time is were we get to chose an activity to do and discover more things about that activity. I chose to do sewing. In sewing I discovered that it is very very hard to do hand sewing, because you have to try and keep the stitches the same length apart. One challenging thing about sewing is, to try not to poke your self with the needle, but its pretty much impossible to not poke your self. Its really fun doing discovery time! I think that next time I might try the stilts and hand knitting!

1) How do you think you did on your SLC? What was the highlight? I think I did ok with me SLC. And my highlight was just shearing my learning with my mum.

2) What did you do differently to make your SLC stand out? I think I was talking well so that my mum could here everything about my learning.
