My fruit art

We have been learning about how a seed sprouts. I drew a picture of the inside of a kiwi fruit to see its seeds.

My blog comment to Julianne

We are learning to write quality blog comments and we are training to do that. Here is a screenshot of my favourite comment that I have created and as you can see I commented on Julianne’s blog. If you don’t know you can click on my comment a link will come up. I have started off with a greeting and I was trying to make a connection by asking a question and trying to be positive. I commented because I really like her blog post.

Wednesday 11th November 2015

Last Wednesday we went to the movies for the film festival. Once everyone was seated the lights went off and the introduction for the film festival started. My favourite film was Pt England St because it was funny and my favourite part was when the girl was pretending to be pregnant and asks to see a doctor. As you can see, Mrs Buchanan took a photo with Kuini, Henry and me. That was my first time at the film festival and the first time that we made a film. We were so excited for the film festival to start. Some of the films were hilarious, like Pt England St, Manaiakalani Man and others. It was really good fun!

This is Shalom and Azahar's snagit

Azahar and I created a Snagit about the Manaiakalani film festival and our favourite movie. It was very hard to record ourselves because we hadn't done it before.

Super duper tips!

We were smart because before we made our individual blogs we made
a infographic poster. We made this poster to give you some advice for what to share on your blog. We shared some ideas like art, farewells and special events and a lot of other ideas.

Looking after my chromebook safely

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.

Anzac survivors

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 acrostic poem because it is about poppies.  I have  learnt something about ANZAC Day.

Delicious clay pizza

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.

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.
