Surinam Frog

SH felt very proud when he completed his photostory on the Suranim Frog, a creature from the Rain Forest. SH's Reading Group had to choose a Rainforest creature, find information on their creature and then present their information using an ICTtool....SH chose to do his on a Photostory.

Water Care Badges

Today Room 12 came and shared the Water Care badges they had made. Each badge had a message on it. They got to share lots of things that they knew about water with us. Did you know that only 1% of the earth's water can be used safely!
Here are some video clips that JM took showing children explaining their badges.

EK also did videoing. She got some great close ups. They look like they are having sooooo much fun!

EK had a turn videoing also. She videoed some great Jump Jammers!!

KND did some videoing also. She used a tripod when videoing. In Room 4 we decided that using a tripod makes the video not so shaky. Pod 2 are Jump Jamming to "Who Let The Dogs Out"

We love doing Jump Jam each morning. This was CH's first attempt at taking a video. She took a photo of Pod 2 doing "Witch Doctor"

Shaun The Sheep

In Room 4 we played the Great New Zealand Quiz and found out that there are more sheep than people! We also watched this video clip about Shaun the Sheep. We thought it was very funny! We think you might too.

Goodnight Kiwi

In Room 4 we love kiwis and the Goodnight Kiwi is part of KIWIana. The Goodnight Kiwi came on television at the end of the night when it was time to turn the telly off and go to bed!!I wonder why The Goodnight Kiwi is not shown on TV now!

Rugby ball getting kicked by BH

My rugby ball got kicked so high that it went over the goal posts and was a conversion for 2 more points to make 6.

Kiwi animation by HW

My little, brown kiwi pecked a worm out of the ground and ate it. He felt full. I wish my animation had talking in it, next time I will do that.

My lovely shiny, paua shell is getting washed up on the beach and there is a cheeky fish which you can see getting closer to you.

Rugby ball animation by SLB

I made an animation of a bouncing, oval rugby ball which is soaring over the post to score a try.  And win the game to get a trophy.

For Mothers Day we made some "Handbag" cards. When you opened the flap there was a pop up inside and our messge to our mums was written on this!! A silver painted pasta bow was the clasp on the front of the handbag and a pipe cleaner was the handle. They looked sooo cool!!

Here are some of our Mothers Day messages.
Mum, you are like a beautiful snuggly cat because you are so warm. EK
Mum, you are like a master chef because you make awesome chocolate cake. BH
Mum, you are like a lolly because you are really sweet. AMW
Mum, you are like a kingfisher because you like to eat fish. SH
Mum, you are like a race car because you like driving fast. HW
I love you mum, you are a star! RE

During Term One we visited The Zoo, Cockle Bay Beach and reserve and Tahuna Torea. We have learned about many New Zealand native fauna and flora.

This is a picture trail of many native New Zealand flora and fauna that we know. How many of these do you know the names of?

Kimberley and Emma's Photostory

We learned how to make photostories with Ms F and the Digikidz. We talked about things we do at the weekend then we went out and took some photos. We tried very hard to remember what to do on our own so that we can help our friends use Photostory. When we got stuck we looked at our how to help sheets. Then we worked with a partner in room 4 to help them make a Photostory. Hayley and Cooper the Room 6 Digikidz came to help us. Watch this space for some of the group's fabulous work coming soon.
