Dance Mat Typing - Maata

This morning I played on Dance Mat Typing. I was practising keeping my fingers on the home keys which are ASDF  on your left hand and JKL; on your right hand. I  also practiced  typing without looking at the keys. I had fun doing this and I think I am getting faster at my typing.

Keeping Rabbits - Maata

This week I read the book called Keeping Rabbits. The book explained about how to care for a pet rabbit and the things you need to know to keep your rabbit healthy. I have shown some of the foods rabbits can eat and some ways you can care for a rabbit.

Today at tech we had to finish our clock. After painting them we glued the sides to join the front and back together. Then Miss Ferguson put the clock mechanism in the back. This is my completed clock. I think it looks fantastic.

You've got 2 minutes - Maata

I see people playing all round me some of them are playing handball & basketball with all their friends. I can smell egg sandwiches, freshly cut grass & mud all around me wherever I walk. I can hear children screaming and yelling and the hammering on the roof from the workmen. I feel happy to be out of the classroom and excited to be running to the playground & playing with my friends.

This is my writing about what I can see, Smell and hear at school we had only two minutes to write as much as we could to complete the task.

Tom The School Cat

For Reading I read the book called Tom The School Cat. It's about a cat named Tom. Tom wasn't like most cats because he didn't live in a house, he lived at school. Instead of cat food he would eat left overs from the kids  school lunches. He slept under a classroom.  My DLO about cats shows lots of different types of cats and some facts about cats.

How to make a hamburger - Maata

Yesterday I read the book called Hamburgers. I learned what ingredients we need to make a Hamburger and how to make it. My DLO shows some of the ingredients you can use to put in your hamburger. I also learned that hamburgers are quick and easy to make and can be a healthy meal. 

Rewindable learning

Today LS2 were practicing the dance we were learning yesterday for our school production. Our teacher who is creating and teaching us the dance moves is named Zoe. The dance my group is performing  is to the song "I see Red" by Split Enz. We were able to practice by using Rewindable Learning. This is when we can go back and watch a video of our group performing our dance and rewind and review our moves to see what we need to improve and what we are doing well. We will be adding to our dance each week and being able to use rewindable learning is a great way to practice so we will get the dance looking great.

Impossible Is Possible - Maata

This term our topic is about Relationships. Possible is about never giving up on your dreams and believing in yourself. Don't let anybody tell you you're not good enough. 

Tech - Tamaki College

Today at tech we were working on finishing off coloring our designs. We then drew our design onto the lazer cut out. After that we started our painting. We had to mix primary colours together to get the colour we wanted. We had to make sure we didn't apply the paint too thickly as we will need to do more than one coat.
