Broad beans and 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 and broad bean changed over time.

Quality Blog Comments

Good afternoon I think this comment is a quality blog comment because I said something positive about it and I already know the name of the game and I know they had fun playing it.

Our snagit

This is the Snagit I made when I was working with Dakbai from Room 9.

Our movie Kotahitanga

My part of making our movie was making a letter A out of newspaper for the word Ruapotaka. My buddies to do this were Mary and Henry. We read the newspaper in the library and then we carried the letter A out onto the field. We played the Stan Walker song while we were making our movie. We sang the National Anthem part in class. I really enjoyed making Room 10's movie for the film festival. It was cool seeing it on the big screen but I wish there was popcorn and drinks. I also think the best movie I saw was Kotahitanga!

Taking care of my chromebook

In Term 2 Mrs Grant taught us about Kawa of Care.  This means that it is my job to look after my Chromebook carefully when I am working and when I carry it around the classroom.

How Many Pieces Do I Have?

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 the same number of toppings.

I'd like to travel here.

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.
