Christs College Trip!

30/11/2017

Last week on Wednesday I was selected to be one of the 10 year 7 students to represent that were chosen to go to Christ College, We were separated into groups we got red bags with a small water bottle, a book with a pen
We got to do some activities around Christs college. My group was Sophie Pascoe, I was with Faith.

My favorite thing about the whole experience was the attitude talk it was funny and enjoyable, especially when they told us their stories.

I Learnt that I am a golden retrotter, (golden retriever and a otter)
I also learnt that it is better to communicate by using someones name. Also use body language.
Big Thanks To Miss Tozer for taking us to Christ Collage.

Here are a couple of pictures that were taken during the wonderful event!

Festival Of The Arts 2017

What are we doing: We are learning 4 songs on a guitar, 

feelings: I'm feeling happy that I chose guitar for my arts kete because I want to play guitar for my family if we do songs for someones birthday or something.

What am I learning to do?
I'm learning how to play 5 songs on the guitar and learning how to switch chords really fast. 

What have I found challenging?:
switching chords fast, and keeping in time with Miss Gibson and switching to E

Here is a little video I did showing things about the guitar, sorry I was really nervous because people were staring at me.


What have I been successful at?:
I've been successful at switching to d,a,g without looking, kind of have to look when I change to G still.

What do I still need to l master/next steps.
Learning how to play the songs without stopping to change and strum and trying to sing!

Can't wait until we finish so I can start teaching my whanau and friends how to play.
Big thanks to Miss Gibson for teaching us how to play the guitar.

Festival Of The Arts 2017

13/11/2017
What are we doing: feelings
What am I learning to do?

What have I found challenging?:
What I find challenging about learning the guitar is learning if you are pressing on the strings hard enough and making the right sounds, It felt challenging when we were told to strum on top of the sound hole, because I was so use to strumming on the neck of the guitar.

What have I been successful at?:
I think I was pretty good at remembering the parts of the guitar and putting my fingers in the right places.

What do I still need to l master/next steps.
I think I could try to do the chords without looking and learning new things about the guitar like its history and etc.

I'm looking forward to learning about the guitar and how to play through out the weeks of term 4.
Big thanks to Miss Gibson for teaching us how to play.
