My Dream

Hi there dear reader, this is my post about my dream.

Jessica Watson was inspired when her mother read her book called ‘Lion Heart’. It was a story about an 18 year old boy called Jesse Martin. He was the youngest person who ever sailed the whole world. Also, she was inspired when a woman called Kay Cottee sailed around the world. She was the first women who sailed around the world unaided.

After all the inspiration her dream became, ‘to be the youngest person to sail around the world unaided and unsupported.’ In the end she accomplished her dream.

My dream is to either establish a very big food company or be a comic book artist. I am going to achieve this by: for making a big food company, I will start a small business and expand gradually. For a comic book artist, I will start drawing little comic strips but then, start making real comic books and get it published.

My inspiration for the food business is that my mum is the manager of Subway Gisborne. For the comic book artist, I believe that I’m a really good drawer, and that it isn’t really hard, you just have to strive to your goal. I really wanted to start a food business because I have always wanted to create food. It is like a piece of art.

I want to be a comic book artist because I really like comic books and the way the pictures can express a whole story. To work toward my dreams, I will have to start out small and over the years, I will grow my career. I will also have to practice cooking with my mum. Probably, I would enter graphic novel competitions to start out small.

I believe that everyone should have a dream to look towards to. I believe this because everyone should have a planned future ahead.

Thanks for reading my post about my dreams!

Hopefully my dreams come true…


My Term 3 SMARTS Goals!

Earlier this term, we set some SMARTS goal for our self’s. Before I could set goals I needed to identify what I did well and what I needed to improve on. By setting goals I have something to aim for.

To make the goals we needed to refer to the SWOT analysis sheet (SWOT is actually a acronym. The ‘S’ stands for strengths, the ‘W’ stands for weaknesses, the ‘O’ stands for opportunities, and the ‘T’ stands for threats.) . The sheet helped us to write down our strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats. The 4 goals were, writing skills, reading skills, mathematics skills, and learning behaviour skills. We found the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and the threats of our goals.

Now that you know how my goals were made, let me share them with you. My Writing goal was to improve on using my past tense and present tense. I chose this goal because I have trouble writing stories with the right tense. I hope to achieve my goal by the end of term 3. I will achieve my goal by reading more stories with the kind of tense that I have trouble with. This will help me because I will get more of an idea of how to write a story with that tense.  To show that I have improved at my goal, I will write a story using that present tense.

My Mathematics goal is to get 80% accuracy or greater, on my New Wave Mentals by the end of Term 3. I have chosen this goal because I am currently achieving an accuracy of 90% on simpler Maths New Wave Mentals. To achieve this goal I will work in clinic groups with Mrs Kane. I will also visit websites on the class blog to improve my skills. I will also identify areas for improvement and practise at home. My scores on Maths New Wave Mentals will be evidence of my achievement.

My Learning Behaviour goal is to share the load of the work evenly, because I always go ahead and leave my group behind, so most of the time I have to catch them up. To achieve this goal I will stick with my group and give roles to each team member so nobody gets left behind. Everyone should be up to date with the group work so no one is left behind, that should be the evidence.

Below this text is my SWOT analysis sheet that helped me.
