This week in the Library it was harder because my partner that helps me do the duty each week was away sick which was a shame because that meant that I had to to double what I normally do . one thing that has changed in the library was that every lunch time Mrs Ward play an audio book on the TV so everyone can listen some on the recent books and been pig the pug and peter rabbit. I have shown the CARE values Community Excellence, and the leadership trait that I have used is Active Thinking because I have contributed with other people to make the library a better place for everyone to use.

This week I have shown leadership when my whanau room 7/8 LM went to te hapua library to do robotics or coding my group did robotics our first activity that we did was playing with bee bots we learnt that a robot it something that obeys you and is something that you program to do. After we had played around with the bee bots we played with Lego robots they are called mind clouds we programmed them to make noise and make pictures appear on its screen they all had names our one was called Jones. I have shown the CARE values Active Thinking and Excellence, I have also shown the leadership trait collaboration because I collaborated with the teacher who was leading the group, also with the person that I was sharing the mind cloud with.

This week after we ate our lunch we went to the library to do our duty, when we got there we could see that there weren't many books on the trolley to put away which we thought was quite odd, which was right instead of putting a ton of books away we had to sort through all of the picture books and make sure they were all in the write letter, surprisingly it didn't take as long as we thought, because we had a strategy, the strategy was that Charlotte did the bottom shelf and I did the top shelf. I have shown the CARE values Community Excellence, and the leadership trait that I have used is Active Thinking because I have contributed with other people to make the library a better place for everyone to use.
This week I have shown leadership because, we have a thing called the 40 book challenge that we have to complete by the end of the year, and by the name you can tell that you have to read 40 book from different genres. So far I have read twenty two books. The bests books that I have read so far are the Cherub series. I have shown leadership in this because you do not have to do it but if you don't you will face the consequence. The CARE values that I have used are Excellence and Active Thinking. The Leadership trait I have used is Resilient because I kept going even if in the middle of the book was boring and didn't give up.
This week my Home Learning challenge was Cantamaths, It is a maths team that represents Oakands school in a maths competition. Here are some of the questions. I have shown the CARE values Active Thinking and Excellence, I have also shown the Leadership Trait Trustworthy because I committed to doing cantamaths and they teachers trusted me to do them.
