Today for Kiwi sport we had badminton. We have been practicing our forehand and our backhand grip. After having some practice, we did a rally. For the rally, we had to hit the badminton to our partner without it hitting the floor. My partner was Jeremiah and we did pretty well. We all had a lot of fun and I am looking forward to our next session of badminton.

Film Festival

Yesterday, the whole school went down to Hoyts Sylvia Park for the 10th annual Manaiakalani film festival. The films that were shown there were created by students from the schools in the Manaiakalani cluster. My favorite film was the one LS1 made. It was about two boys trying to survive in a school full of crazy people. When we got back to school, we went on some of the other schools videos and left some comments. All of the films were creative and I enjoyed watching them.

Screencastify - Maths Strategies

In LS2 we have been learning how to use screencastify to show our learning. Screencastify is a screen recorder that we use to show our learning. For this, we had to find a maths DLO and record ourselves talking about it. It took me a couple of attempts to finishing recording because everyone was recording and talking at the same time. I found screencastify a great tool because it's a new way to show my learning. Above the recording is a screenshot of my plan that I used in my screencastify.
