Clothing

Clothing
I am cosy, filled with fluff. Once brand new and tunnel black, but now I am just dirty and scratched.  
Let me tell you a bit about myself.
Dedicated for winter, made to keep you warm, I am filled with feathers, comforting, just what everyone needs.
Once I was sitting in a box in some noisy factory and then journeyed on a plane into a macpac store somewhere in the North Island.
I sat on a coat hanger for months, but finally someone picked me!, not any other one but me! and from then on my journey began.
John, he took me to his job every day, in the snow or in the rain he took me to his job, it was a nice place, it had warm heaters and cold air conditioning units.
I was well-loved and comforted in the accommodation of his wardrobe...
Fast forward a couple years, my outside was getting dirty, he tried to clean me, but the stains were too soaked in and it seemed John had brought something to replace me, I felt like I was unloved and useless.
At this point I had no use, I was just sitting in his wardrobe on a coathanger.
One day out of the blue he took me to a charity shop, and someone put me here on a bent coathanger, unwanted, unneeded, and I guess here the cycle starts again.

Blue

Blue
I am the colour of the crashing waves and the splash in the dark blue  sea,the colour of a juicy blueberry, that cobalt painted wall. A baby blue sapphire on a shining gold ring

Biking

Going for a bike ride in the weekend.
Biking along the bumpy ground, the wind blows past me and the hot sun beams down.
Patiently I wait for the traffic lights to go green, the cars stop and I bike across the soft turf of the road. 
As I pick up speed the wind picks up too.
My nose picks up the sweet smell of fresh green grass. 
My ears venture through the many sounds to find the the cheerful chirp of tweeting birds. 
I can see the birds perched on the branches of the trees.
I feel nurtured by the beautiful nature around me.

When I felt proud

When I felt Proud
I sprinted up to the ball and wham! the ball flew Into the back of the net, I scored a penalty for the football team. That was the first goal I scored this season, it was a terrible goal and there was about a 5% chance of it going in, Luckily their goalkeeper was not very good. A 
smile spread across my face like melted butter, and I ran across the field with my arms spread out like an eagle . To make the day even better we bet burnside 8-1! .

Discovery Time Reflection 22/3/16

Discovery Time Reflection 22/3/16
Today at discovery time I filmed an iMovie for Jayden, Hamish, Korey, Gabby, Riley and Jackson. We filmed on the field, playground and around the boiler shed.

The role I played was being the filmer aka the cameraman. 

A skill I used was kneeling down when I was filming on the playground, I used this skill because I could film the most of the action that way.

Something new I have learnt is that I am actually quite a good at filming, but sometimes it took 8-9 takes for one scene but also sometimes it only took 1-2 takes which is better.

A struggle/challenge for me was filming for further away scenes because when I zoomed in it would not focus.

I showed a growth mindset when I tried something new because I have not filmed that much.

Next discovery time I want to show an improvement by filming more of the scene, because I feel I did not get to film a bit of what I was seeing.

Overall today was really fun and I am excited to film more of the iMovie,(we are planning on making the movie a lot longer 25-40 minutes) I think I could use my filming skill for photography or school projects when I am older.
