Room Ten Growing Broad Beans

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 bean changed over time.

Our snagit about the film festival

This is a screencast I made with Kuini and Meaalofa to say what we liked about our favourite movie at the Film Festival. It was very tricky making the Snagit because we had to write a script and practise our words. It was fun working with Room 9.

What we liked at the movies

When we came back from the movies we got our chromebooks out and we looked at some movies. We mostly looked at Room 9’s movie because it was so cool. Robati, Solomone and I were dancing. If you look at Robati, it looks like he is having a good time.

Things To Share On Your Blog

Before we launched our own blogs, we checked out some student blogs in Manaiakalani to see what kinds of information people share.  We noticed that they used photographs and videos as well as writing to share their learning.  We created an infographic to share what we discovered.

Taking care of your 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.

My fraction pizza with clay

 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.

Paris, France

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.

My DLO about ANZAC

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 ANZAC Biscuit poster because  I have learnt how to describe them.

 Ctrl f is a fast way to finds things and I like it because it finds things quickly for me.
