I show the Respect value by listing to Mr Rule because we don't have many weeks left until a we practice with other schools so I showed Leadership by listing to Mr Rule and doing what he said and also helping out by giving the roles to the teachers.
I showed the excellence value because some people we're interrupting the duty and there we're about half of the year 7/8 class joining in and i showed leadership by getting help from the teacher when the kids we're interrupting the PALS game for the other children.
I showed active thinking because my partner was not their so I put some jump jam on and then went to look for him and I showed leadership by when I speak to other children I am clear but respectful to them and I make sure my language is clean and appropriate for school and I model the care values.

I have made a model of Alcatraz in terraria. It has taken more than 8 hours (4 hours on minecraft and 4 and 30 minutes on terraria) because I started making it on another pixel game minecraft and then that didn't give me the reflection I wanted, so I started on terraria. Some of the things in the prison I could not make because they weren't in the game (eg. Shower so I used bathtub as a representative as a shower) so, here are a few pictures of the prison
I had to put a table and chair in the cells so there was people in the cells and because there is no prisoners in terraria so that's why there is tables and chairs in the rooms and why there is people in the cells. I have also researched Alcatraz. It is a stranded island where the people go who committed the worst crimes but it is closed now and the tours around Alcatraz and it is located by San Fransisco.
