A Fact File by Noah

Today during guided writing, Noah chose a picture of a caterpillar. He chose to write a fact file about it. He used an iPad for some research and wrote the facts in his own words. 

He used Tell Pic to record his facts over top of his picture.

Mac book Airs

Some mac book airs are small and light but they can still do a lot of things. If you want to get a mac book Air these are some places that you could get one  from JB Hi Fi, Noel Leemings, Harvey Norman and Dick Smith and that is all of them. Mac book airs are really fun and you can do lots of things. And another thing is that they are expensive. On a mac book air you can E-Mail, google, drop box and use safari to look up, get and buy anything you want. By Zylah and Rio

The un published book

Two nights ago my dad showed me a book that was not published. It is a really good book and it is sort of about your imagination. It tells you to imagine a banana. My dad's friend e-malied my dad the book on his computer and he printed it out from the big printer at his work and brang it home to me and showed me the book. The reson that I like this book is because there are really great parts in it and the main character is a boy with a lions tail.When the boy was a baby he was chucked into a lions cage by accident. By Ruth and Rosie

Ever want to see what a worm does under a rock?

Going on a Bug Hunt

This term we are learning to find out ways to bring the bugs back into our gardens in order to fertilise the soil and bring the birds back to our school.

We brainstormed what bugs we already know and whether we think they're a helper or a villain. Later on we will research and find out what their jobs are in this world.

First we had to find out what bugs were already here so we went on a bug hunt with the iPads!

This is what we found!

Stars of the Week

This week we had 5 girls who were the stars of the week. The star of the day is chosen by their peers. Zania was the star on Monday and then she chose Elizabeth. Then Elizabeth gets to choose the next star. 

Elizabeth, Isabelle, Zania, Ruby and Cherry
Everyone in the class is looking for "star" qualities. These are being a kind friend, saying booster statements, being a focussed learner or showing respect. 

Everyone gets the chance to be a star for the day and sit in the comfy chair whenever they choose too. 

Watch this space next week to see who the next 5 stars will be. Will it be YOU?

We all had fun and got very fit!

Learning about Area

In Maths we were learning about measurement. We liked learning about area in a fun way of creating our own robot or creation and then counting up the number of square units.

Enjoy the slideshow of some of our creations.

Improving our school with Straws?

Sounds funny, doesn't it?

On Tuesday Jonty and I  chose a project and we chose number 15 - What do you like about your school and what things would you change? 

Then we wrote a  list about what we should make with the straws. We wrote the list using Notes on the ipad. When we finished doing the list we started making the school with the straws and we tock a picture. We put a speech bubble and wrote in the speech bubble and it was fun.
