Smart Media choices

We are learning to make smart media choices. Ms Raisin is terrible at looking at her screen to check emails etc when she is on the move. She has walked into signs, lampposts and other people doing this! She gets really easily distracted! It's a wonder she hasn't been run over!

We played Twalkers which reminded us how distracting the screen can be.

Skate School


We were really lucky to have George from Skate School teaching us how to ride.

He brought two different types of boards. One for cruising and one for tricks. I really liked the cruise board.

It was really great to see everyone choosing a really positive attitude and giving it a go, even though it threw some of us out of our comfort zone.

Easter Baskets

 

For Easter, we made baskets on Google drawing. 

We had to learn a few skills, like holding down the shift key to make sure the shape is a square. SOme of us found that if it wasn't a square, our basket was lop-sided.

We also needed to source images that we were able to use and how to make sure they were png images.

Anne and Veronica from the library visit

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Anne from the library van and Veronica from our local Hornby primary.
Ngakaunui joined us for this session.

Anne talked about the different types of books she brings, along with where we will find them in the van. 
Younger fiction chapter books
Older fiction chapter books
Picture books
Non Fiction
Anne read us 'Wordy Birdy'. She had a fabulous expressive reading voice!

We're really excited to be going to the can to get some books out later today.
