Research into Well Being

Gemma - I really enjoyed doing it because I'm not used to saying things in front of a whole bunch of people and it was ok.
Amber - I really enjoyed presenting and listening to other people's presentations. I learnt lots.
Riley - I enjoyed doing a poster because I could do it all myself. I thought it was a bit nerve racking thinking about what I had to say, but it was very fun.
Rosie - I was scared the first time and once I started talking I got used to it.
Matt - I loved listening to people's presentations. I thought that everyone included lots of information and detail into their presentation or poster or prezi or extranormal. I think everyone worked really hard on their project and they did a really good job.
James - I enjoyed it because I liked watching people's presentation.
Daniel - I really enjoyed watching other people's presentations because they were really interesting and I got a lot of facts. Also, my powerpoint went really well, but I had a couple of muck ups but it was really fun.
Tessa - I thought it was really fun, because we all got to share what we had learnt.
Ciaran - It was really fun because we learnt new facts about exercise and all the other topics. I think I did quite well on my powerpoint and next time I will try to look at the class more.
Chloe - I though doing presentations was a really good idea because we learnt new things from other people and it was really fun.
Will - I enjoyed listening to other peoples' presentations because I like learning new things and I think I need to work on looking at the class a bit more.
