Badminton

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.

For this PBS Blogging Journey activity, the task is to: Find out about a parade that is held outside the Auckland Museum once a year (When it is held and why it is held). Record your answer on Vocaroo and post it on your blog.

Here is the link to my recording: https://vocaroo.com/i/s0WV00Eg55rI

PBS Blogging Journey

For this PBS Blogging Journey activity, the task is to: Visit the museum website and find out about life as an ANZAC soldier. Find three interesting facts and say why you found them interesting.
Fact 1: Archduke Franz Ferdinand's death started WW1. I found this interesting because if he hadn't have been assassinated, the war would never have started.
Fact 2: WW1 ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. I found that interesting because a very bloody war ended on a very weird date.  
Fact 3: In WW1, when the ANZAC's left, they had to put sandbags on their shoes so that the enemy wouldn't hear them. I found this interesting because it was a very smart idea that might have saved lives.

For this PBS Blogging Journey activity, the task is to: Create a DLO providing the opening times and all the ticket prices. Full bonus points in you add a image and attribute it. I find it weird how Kelly Tarltons charges you less if you order online rather than paying the walk up price.

For this PBS Blogging Journey Activity, the task was to: Visit the Kelly Tarlton's website to find out how much it would cost for you to go there. Use your smart searching skills to find out much it would cost for your family to visit the aquarium. It would cost me $22 if I pay online or $27 if I pay when I get there. It would cost my family $127 if we pay online (Family B ticket + Child ticket) or $159 if we pay when I get there.

PBS Blogging Journey

For this PBS Blogging Journey activity, the task was to: Find different adventurous activities that you can do at the Sky Tower and say which one would you choose, why would you choose it and how much would it cost. At the Sky Tower, you can do the Sky Jump and the Sky Walk. I would choose the Sky Jump because in that activity, you jump off the Sky Tower and that sounds like heaps of fun and the Sky Walk only involves you walking around on a 1.2 meter platform 192 meters up. The Sky Jump costs $225 for a adult and $175 for a child. 

PBS Blogging Journey

For this PBS blogging journey activity, the task was to: Create a mascot for the Sky Tower as Scotty (The Sky Tower mascot) is away. Write a explanation about why you chose your mascot. My mascot is named Bob and I chose him because he is designed to look kind of like the Sky Tower (Really tall and thin).
