Compass - Tech @ Tamaki College

Today at tech, we were making shapes with compasses. We made flowers, stars, and cubes with circles. It was fun and difficult since it was hard getting the perfect circle. I think I have improved with using compasses because I know that I should hold the black top to control the compass.

For the past two weeks, we have been looking at cybersmart. We covered choosing keywords, what matter and what doesn't, and how to speed up while you are surfing through the internet. This was entertaining since I was having fun while revising knowledge about cybersmart. 

Idiom Writing Challenge

This week's writing challenge was idiom. Idioms are a set of words that have different meanings to what the person has said. For an example, when someone says to 'Break a leg', they don't actually mean to break a leg, they mean to try your hardest. 

Suffragette Movement Sketchnote

Mia and I made an online sketch note using google drawing, based on our learning about the Suffrage Movement. We made a sketch note to make connections with our learning and to show what we have learned. Learning conversations helped us learn from our partner. It was definitely an important skill for this activity.

Kate Sheppard - Mia, Jorja and Nazella

Mia, Jorja and I researched about Kate Sheppard. Kate Sheppard is the Suffragette Movement leader. 124 years ago, the movement was created so that women were able to vote in elections etc. The Suffragette's finally achieved this in 1893, but Kate Sheppard still wanted to protest for women.

Rewindable Learning - School Production

At the end of term 3 PBS is performing a school production. Zoe, our dance instructor came in yesterday and taught us some of our dance routine. While we were learning, Mrs Anderson took a video of our group dancing. Today we used the video to practice rewindable learning. We watched the video and replayed it so that we could practice/revise our dance. I think that rewindable learning helped our group improve and realize that some moves we were performing weren't correct.

Impossible? Really? - Poster

Are you sure it is impossible? This poster is trying to motivate people to believe and never give up, because so many things which were thought wouldn't come true, has come alive. So is it impossible? Our topic this term is relationships with ourselves and others. One way you can have a relationship with yourselves is by telling yourself that it isn't impossible, and that it is possible.
