Star Signs In Room 11

Currently in Room 11, we have been studying graphs and star signs. Our job was to create a tally chart and go around the class and ask each student what their star sign was. When we had finished with our tally chart, we added it up and starting working on our actual bar graph. The most popular star sign in Room 11 is Capricorn, and the least popular is Pisces, Taurus, Cancer and Scorpio. It was a fun task to do with our class mates, I hope we get to do this again.

Volleyball in Room 11...

For the past few weeks, Room 11 and a few other classes have been playing Volleyball with our instructor Toni. 

Sadly, This week is our last week and we possibly won't be seeing her ever again. This week, We had a about two lessons, and for the rest of the Volleyball session we had competitions against each other. 

We had gotten put into 6 groups and we all got a chance to compete against every group. Sadly, My group didn't come first, but at least we had the biggest amount of fun! 

Glen Taylor Culture Festival!

At the beginning of the year, Glen Taylor School had a culture festival. We had the the opportunity to choose what culture group we wanted to go in. Each week we would have two practices so we knew what we performing on the actual day. At the culture fest, They sold Drinks, Island Plates of food (Which was delicious) and sausages. All the money that they made selling food, All went towards the school. It was an amazing day!

Slimy Soup...

A few weeks ago we were focusing on procedural writing. A Procedure is explaining how to make or do something step by step. In class, we got given a task to do a procedural writing on slimy soup. In the procedure you have to list your ingredients, equipment and the method. For the slimy soup recipe, you had to include some disgusting ingredients, so don't mind them.

Inquiry Presentation Term 1

Last Term, Our inquiry topic was 'Our Own Backyard'. While working independently, I had to come up with 7 sub questions and one big wide question. After coming up with sub questions, I then had to research them and find the answers using whatever resource I could find. The sub questions are always in relation to the big questions. In my inquiry presentation, I was focusing on Pollution and how we can prevent it.

My inquiry presentation

This terms inquiry topic is Keeping ourselves safe (K.O.S). I had gathered all of this information using google search and the New Zealand Herald. Before starting the process of my presentation, I had to come up with 6 different questions that I had to find the answers to. Some communities can be very dangerous, So make sure to keep safe!

Keeping your password secure

Last Term, Mrs Grant came into our class and we had a cyber smart lesson. In this lesson, We had to create a google drawing or presentation on how you should create a password. When creating a password, you should always make sure that it is unique and that it is something that no one will guess. Also, Make sure to keep your password safe and secure by not telling anyone what it is. 

Facts About Rodents!

Last Term, We were studying Rodents. In our reading groups, We had a list of rodents and we all had to find one fact about each. I decided that I would create a google drawing with the fact listed below the rodent. While I was researching for facts about these rodents, I was really surprised on what these rodents were capable of. 

(This Presentation was my reading tasks for week 5 & 6)

Glen Taylor's School Disco!

A few weeks ago, The staff decided that we would have a School Disco. In order to enter the disco, you would of needed to pay $2. At the disco, they were selling snacks and drinks all for a cheap and affordable price, which is really convenient. The disco had colourful lights and a well known dj. The reason that we were having a school disco was because the friends of the school wanted to fundraise for us. Our school needed money for a notice board which will be placed at the front office for everyone to see. This notice board will have student art, Notices and much more. I hope we get to have another disco soon :) !

Jack London Novel Study

In our Reading Groups, Miss Tupou assigned us to create a Novel Study based on an author. The group that I am currently placed in is Wendt, and we got given Jack London. We had gathered information about him using Google search and any other browser that we could find which had information about Jack London. This Novel Study was interesting and fun. I hope that we can do another one soon!

Whanau Hui

This here is a presentation which I created with my aunty at the Hui that we had last night. The Hui was about taking our Chromebooks home and how we should take care of them at home and in school. After the Hui was finished, we then got to take our chromes home with our charger and bag. I think that it's great that we get to take out chromes home now. This presentation contains information in relation to being cybersmart and looking after our chrome books.

Did you know?...

This poster here is based on a Top Tip. My top tip is Ctrl + W. If you press Ctrl + W, it will immediately exit off the tab that you are currently on. This is very useful and efficient. For example, When you are in a rush to leave, You can quickly just press Ctrl + W then sign out.
