 SO WHAT: We have been learning about different approaches towards bullying weather you are being targeted or you are a bystander watching someone being bullied, (for example) you could be a follower ( join in with the bullying ), a supporter ( encourage or ignore the bullying ) or a defender ( discouraging and taking a assertive response towards bullying ).

 NOW WHAT: I am going to try my hardest to always make the right decision when it comes to someone else being bullied.

WHAT: We had a go at some of the technology at Lincoln primary school.

SO WHAT: At Lincoln primary we got a chance to look at what programs the year 7/8s do every Tuesday. I was in the pink group and we got to do design, woodwork and science. In design we had 30 minutes to create a bridge that would support 500 grams for ten seconds then if it held we would determine who was the winner by the length of the bridge. For the wood work we got to poker burn coasters and for science we made paper clip and straw floaters that sink and rise when you squeeze them.

NOW WHAT: Mext year I am looking forward to robotics and textiles and design.

WHAT: I have been involved in swimming this week. 

SO WHAT: we have been learning about safety skills and endurance testing in our class and it was really fun when we got to play with the ropes and noodles in our safety lesson. I found it really challenging to stay above the water when we had to trend for 2 minutes.

NOW WHAT: I want to improve on going faster in backstroke and breaststroke because when we do ten lengths of each stroke I can stay ahead of people by a length with freestyle but not in the other two ones.

WHAT: We have been learning about Transitions last week.

SO WHAT: Some of the values I ticked are move safely because I never will trip people up or walk in ledges and stay in line because I don't stay back and drift back and forth.

NOW WHAT: I ticked two ticks on use quiet voices because sometimes I won't (use quiet voices).

Winter sport

WHAT: I have been involved in Winter Sport this year.

SO WHAT: This year it has been really fun for me to be part of the netball team competing in winter sport. We have had some really funny times and some good ones too. One of our best games would have been on the very last week when we made a massive comeback pulling into the lead by 8 goals who were all done by Siobhān.

NOW WHAT: Throughout the year I was mostly placed on defense so I never got a really good chance to shoot so I would like to work on playing in attack and shooting better.
