Tyron and I created this slideshow about the water cycle after we had read about it in a School Journal.

My Cress!

We were learning about how plants grow and seeds sprout. We grew cress  and sprouted broad beans in class. We watched how water moves through plants by putting celery in coloured water.

This is how my cress changed over time.

My Quality Blog Comment

We are learning to write quality blog comments. Here is a screenshot of a comment I wrote for Sini’s blog. Mrs Grant has been teaching us to write a specific and positive comment. I think this is why it is a quality blog comment.

Presenting Our Room 10 Movie at the Film Festival

  F I L M     F E S T I V A L

On Wednesday, I went with Katrina to the cinemas at Sylvia Park. When we got there we had a practice on the stage to present Room 10’s movie. We waited until it was our turn to present our movie. We presented it three times, two in the morning and one in the evening. In the evening we ate popcorn and we watched some other movies from other schools because it lasted for two hours. My favourite movie was Pay It Forward because it was funny!

What you can share on your blog

Before we launched our own blogs we checked some of the other students with their own blogs and learnt about what we  need to share online and what we don't need to share online.

Fractions, Fractions, Fractions?

We are learning about fractions this term.  To remember and think about what we already know, we made sausage roll and pizza with clay. We divided our shapes into fractions.  Each piece was the same size. Then, we made some pizza toppings for a whole pizza.  We shared them out on our pizza.  Each quarter of my pizza had four toppings.

Going Surfing At Samoa

This is one of the first Digital Learning Objects that we created and it was quite tricky.  I chose somewhere in the world I would like to visit one day.  Then I found an image of it on Google images.  Next, I cut around a photograph of my head using Pixlr so I could put  myself in that place.  Maybe I will travel there in the future in real life.

A Poem For A Soldier

On 25th April 2015, it was the 100th anniversary of ANZAC soldiers landing at Gallipoli.  We learnt lots of things about life and war for the ANZAC soldiers when we visited Auckland Museum in April.  We created poppies, we have written poems and letters about ANZAC and World War 1.

I have chosen to share my poem because I read it in front of the school. I have learnt that we wear poppies on ANZAC Day.
