Koru Games Reflection

Koru Games Reflection

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was girls volleyball.

Our team came in 8th place out of 24 teams.

I found the experience to be great fun because even though we didn't win we got to make new friends and hangout with them.

In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is extended abstract because I was a part of my group an I contributed in any way I could.

For Teamwork; my solo level is extended abstract because we had great teamwork, great sportsmen ship and at the same time we had a lot of fun.

Letter Writing

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

Here is a link to our online Modelling book. This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have writtendraft of my letter

Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done. reflection of my letter
