Mrs Telea made us do an election billboard to see what if feels like to be a canadent in the party.

Spot the difference!

1.We went to my uncles house, because it was my cousin’s birthday. He had a birthday cake and on it there were ten candles, he blew them out with a big puff! But they wouldn't blow out so my uncle started dancing and we thought he was being silly. So we went outside and played on the bouncy castle.

2.We went to my uncles house for my cousin’s special birthday, because he was turning ten!

He had a birthday cake and on it there were ten candles, he blew them out with a big,enormous puff!

But they wouldn't blow out so my uncle started dancing hilarious and we thought he was being silly to make us laugh.

So we went outside and played on the bouncy castle,in the hot boiling sun.

There is two paragraphs both the same. Try spot the one with detail in it and comment below. Is it One or Two.

Key competencies!

Have you ever heard of the key competencies? Thinking, managing self, participating and contributing, relating to others, using language symbols and texts? If you have, then I bet you are a super learner! However, if you haven’t, well I am here to explain exactly what they are.

Managing Self!
At school do you manage yourself? Well today I am here to explain what managing self means. For example managing self means showing the teacher respect and doing the right things independently. Another Example is managing your body. So lets say if you were angry at someone and you just wanted to punch them, the best thing you could do is calm down, control your body and walk away.

Participating and Contributing!
Participating and contributing means joining in,giving and doing your part like a play. For example if you are working in a group and your suppose share ideas then you should participate and contribute and give your ideas.

Thinking means  when you are using your brain to understand  a question or think of something to say.For example when you are on the mat and you want to  ask a question then you should stop think before you ask a question. Another example is when you get asked a question then I suppose you stop, think answer the question.

This is the end of my explanation. Thank you for reading my writing. Bye.

Use my brain use my heart I’m going to be cyber smart. Have you ever heard this phrase before? Well at Pt England School we use this to be cyber smart citizens.

Use my brain!
Using my brain online means always doing the right thing. For example when you’re friend is on the wrong thing and she tells you to do the same I would think before I do it. So I would Stop think and do.

Use My heart!
Your heart helps your brain make the right decisions.
For example when you feel happy then you can send a happy email or an online card to express your feelings. You dont want to hurt  people,you want to make people happy.

Being cyber smart!
We need to use our brain and our hearts to do the right thing. When you get a doggy email screenshot tell three teachers and send it to Mr Burt.
