Term Two projects + "managing self"

Hi kidlets - here is the explanation of when work is due and what we will be doing in Term Two:

1. Kakepuku Catastrophe! - draft should be written already. Finished version due Friday week two. Class time will be given every day. No extensions

2. HamiltON inquiry Project - this is mainly (a) the digital story relating your personal story or your promotion of HamiltON. It will be completed as a powerpoint-style [powerpoint, Marvin, or imovie] presentation with your own digital images, narration, text and some use of animated Marvin characters. You will do it in class time.

There is going to be a major competition run my Microsoft Partners inLearning to select a winner for this competition between Rm5 and Rm9 - a VERY EXCITING prize will be up for grabs... [think of a letter from the alphabet and think of a small cubic container]
- the entire HamiltON inquiry project must be completed by WEEK FIVE

(b) Anti-GRaffiti Poster COmpetition - run by HCC and Hamitlon POlice, we have one week to design and create a winning poster, [colour, A4] - prizes include book vouchers.

(c) Extras - design of City Heart features such as Garden Place, Wintec Wall, Claudelands Bridge Clip on walkway, etc. - this part of the project can best be presented as a Google Sketchup type presentation with text. Other ideas welcomed.

3. SciEnce fAIR - compulsory - TIME WILL BE SPENT IN CLASS LEARNINg SCiENTIFIC METHODS, etc, BUT THE SCIeNCE FAIR iTSeLF will be a HOMEWORK PROJECT due week one, Term Three.

P.E. - Football, Netball, Hockey, fitness

Languages - Te Reo, English - grammar, word study, transactional writing

MAths - number stuff using Numeracy project methods [like playing with blocks! COol!!! I love blocks]

Possible project for Term Two - opinions, debates and arguments

TERM TWO is going to be DYNAMIC - your management of time and work habits is going to make or break you. It is a 9 week term. Lots of very important work needs to be done. Reports are being written this term. Candidates for top academic, most diligent, and excellence in science, language and the other curriculum areas will be scrutinised this term....

Kia kAha tamariki ma - you have the skills, intelligence, creativity and time to produce some amazing work this term. You now need to apply the personal work and organisation skills to achieve excellence!

READ THIS CAREFULLY before you ask questions that have already been answered.

I have a question:
WHY SO MUCH???
Ok, It sounds awesome, but it makes my already under-the-weather head spin (please note I have been spinning in circles for about three minutes).
Right, I suppose the only major worry is the Digi story - not it isn't done. I just feel funny when I think about it. I don't know. Maybe it means that Me and Sweet Angel won't win the big cubic prize.

NM - fear not - part of our learning will be to plan our week together as a class to see how we can fit in the work we need to do.
