The talk from Andrew Patterson

This morning Andrew Patterson came to the year 8 block well he used to speak for radio live station. He talked to us how to be prepared for college and how to manage our time wisely. Do you remember when you first started college? Were you nervous?. Something he told us was about habits.Their can be good habits and sometimes bad habits.

He talked to us about what kind of college were going to. He also told us about our brain cells he that our brain grows it doesn't matter if you get the answer right it matters if you get it wrong. Because your brain is working the hard questions and getting them wrong because you learn more.

Write to recount that time.

Write about:
  • when and where you did something special
  • who was with you
  • what you did (think about the order you did things)
  • how you felt and why you felt this way.

Remember to:
  • choose your words carefully
  • write in full sentences
  • take care with your spelling and punctuation
  • give your writing a title if you want to
  • check your work: read it through and fix any mistakes you find

To start of the day I quietly sat down in the street to get ready for a big day ahead. Hearing the notices getting called out but I heard something else Mrs Tele’a said we are going to be doing fun time.I thought to myself what is fun time but Mrs Tele’a didn’t tell us she just said that we have been doing a good job so we are going to do something fun.

The bell rang it was time to stop playing outside and go back to class me and my mates zoomed  back to class to get ready for fun time.We put on our P.E shirts and sat down to listen what is fun time.Mrs tele’a said that we have to go back to our home class to see what group we are in.I looked on the board to see what group I was in and I was in my friends group. In my group was me Kevine Elizabeth and Rave we were an all girls group.

I was still wondering what is fun time I asked my friend she said it was an amazing race. I thought  what kind of an amazing race. We had to get a paper to see what station we are going to first. We sat back down in the street to head of to our stations Mrs tele’a called out who is going to fear factor and it was my group.We all had to head of the the brees for our activity. We all sat down to hear what is fear factor I saw slimy spaghetti with fruit salad inside I said EW that don’t look nice but we didn’t eat the spaghetti we ate raw weet bix. I was the one out of my  group that had to eat the raw weet bix ready go Miss ingram said I straight away put the whole weet bix in mouth trying to chew it down but my mouth was so dry I couldn't even eat it I was still chewing but the finally I was almost finished I swallowed it quick but I came second.We had to sit back down to go to our next activity.Our next activity was brain bust.

Walking to room 2,to find out what brain bust is heading through the door about to take of my shoes Miss Clark said no it's fine leave your shoes on. So my group walked in through the door thinking what is brain bust all about.We sat down at a desk so Miss Clark can tell use all about brain bust. She said it is trying to solve out tricky maths questions our first question was what can you see through a wall and we answered a window and we got it right. but then we got a harder one we had to try and use numbers to make it up to 17 but we couldn't use the same number we had to try and make 17 in 3 different ways and you had to use a number between 9 and 1 we had to use 4 numbers to make 17 we only made 2 and our teacher helped use with one.

I think it was the best day that we have done at school next time I think we should do this more offley but different kind of ones.
