### Top Team Bonus Reflection T1W10 2017

Top Team

Intro
This week the whole school did Top Team Games. Your school might have done this and if you have you would know. Top Team is groups of people that go to different schools and set up fun activities for the kids to do. For an example there was a water game which we had to fill up a bucket of water and balance it on this stick thing and we had to try to get to the other end.

My Favorite part

My favorite activity for top team would have to be this game that was like a tunnel thing it was very hard to control but it was very fun. While we were doing this activity we kept falling over and it was quite funny. Here is a picture of some people doing it.

My Least favorite part
Despite that all of the activities were good there is always one that you would probably like the least. So my least favorite activity was the activity where we were in this sack with at least four other people, and for me it felt very crowded. I didn't hate this activity it just wasn't my favorite.

### Literacy Reflection T1W10 2017

Literacy Reflection

Writing: This week for writing the class has written written off story starters this website is called pobble 365. For the story starters I did mother of dragons it's about how zoya has a dragon which thinks zoya is her mother. I have not completely finished this writing but here is my work. Here is the link to pobble (The blue is the story starter).

Mother Of Dragons
When the dragon had hatched, crawling out of its shell onto her bed, Zoya knew that her life would never be the same again.
She had brought the dragon far away from her village; away from the people who would hurt it and take it away from her. As she held it in her hands, feeling its claws affectionately digging into her fingers through her gloves, Zoya knew that exactly what she had to do. What they had to do. Together.
The dragon gazed at her. She could see the flames burning within its eyes. It was totally dependant on her, as a new-born child is to its mother. And yet, strangely, she felt dependant upon the dragon as well; dependant upon what it was and what it would become in time.
They would become inseparable. Their futures were entwined. Their adventures were only just beginning…
This wasn’t the only dragon that zoya had bonded with before. She had once had another dragon but the people from her village took him away. That’s why she wasn’t sure if she
could take care of the new dragon.
Just while Zoya was thinking so many thoughts in her head, the dragon made the weirdest noise that anybody had ever heard. Then it all went silent for at least 2 minutes. Then she heard voices and for some reason she couldn’t help but think that she knew this person. It was her father. She hadn’t seen him for years and he must have come back to hear that Zoya was missing, he must have got out a search party. The only problem was that her father dislikes dragons and also wasn’t very fond of her, so she ran with her dragon.
