Our Greeting Waiata: Haere Mai

We have been learning some Maori waiata with Mrs Driver. Here is one of our first attempts at a greeting song called Haere Mai - since we made this video we have discovered some slight changes to our actions and pronunciation on a few of our lines. It is good to see how we have developed with this waiata though.

Nature Art and Voice Thread

Today we had a go at doing a Voicethread. A Voicethread records our ideas either in writing, video or using a voice recording. It is a simple way for us to give feedback. Today we looked at our art work and said what we liked about it doing this with Miss Neil.

Our Values Posters

We have been communicating with Room 4 at Upper Moutere School (near Nelson) who have inspired us to make these values posters. Louie (a very clever boy at Upper Moutere) made us a tutorial on how to make a poster in Comic Life. We used his tutorial to help make our own posters. Check out our posters below and leave us a comment

MOTAT 2013

What a day we had at MOTAT.
On Wednesday 7th August,  Room 11 travelled to MOTAT to learn exciting things about electricty.
We had great fun looking around the exhibitions and galleries. We really liked the mirror maze!!!
A wonderful lady called Melissa taught us all about circuits. We also learnt that we are conductors of electricity because we are full of water. Interestingly, new electric trains are coming to Auckland. They are very different to the steam trains and the tram  because they are operated by computers. In the challenge zone was an 'earthquake' simulation. It rocked and rumbled, shaking us as we sat at a table.
It was a great learning experience and lots of fun too!!
