Screencastify - Finding Fractions Of An Amount

On Friday we had Mrs Grant teaching LS2 how to use screencastify. We were screencastifying our maths strategies. For this we first wrote our scripts, then we clicked on the Screencastify extension. After that we started recording. Setting this up took long, but we did it. It was great learning a new way to learn and share our work.

Rugby Union Inter school

Today was the Rugby Union Inter School. Each team was split up into groups. The year seven and eight's boys had four game. The first school we played against was Glen Taylor. We fought hard but we couldn't get our tackles right. The score was 0 - 17 to Glen Taylor. Then we had a bye. Our second game was against Glen brae. We had great runs and tackles but unfortunately we lost 10-17 points. Our third game was against Glenn Innes. Our defense and line outs were awesome. But sadly we lost 10-17. Our last game was against Tamaki Primary. They were a toughest team out there. We still fought hard to win but we lost. Losing our games didn't put us down. I think we were respectful to every team. But all that matters is that we had fun. Thank you to Mrs Caroline, Mr O and Mrs Ally.

This was the last activity for the Blogging Journey. I have enjoyed it so much. It has helped me learn lot's of new things, and I can't wait for the Summer Learning Journey. For this activity, we had to make a Venn diagram comparing the Auckland to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

PBS Blogging Journey - Day 4, Activity 2

Today I did the second activity for day 4. Each year there is a parade at the Museum, we had to find out when and why it's held. To record our answers we had to use Vocaroo. I think this activity was cool because we were trying something new.
Here is my link to the recording - Link 

PBS Blogging Journey - Day 4, Activity 1

Today I did the first activity of day four for the school holiday reading challenge, for it I had to find out about what life was like as an ANZAC soldier. I had to visit the Museum Website and find out 3 facts and write why it interests me. To get this information, we had to watch a few videos that explained the events that happened throughout World War 1.

Fact 1 - There was one time when the Turkish waved a white flag, requesting to free clean their bodies. This fact interests me because I never knew that you could do that in a war. 

Fact 2 - Austria - Hungary declared war on Serbia supported by Germany, then the Russians declared war on Austria - Hungary supported by France. Once Germany invaded France through Belgium, and then came the British, until all countries were included in this war making it a world war. The reason this fact interests me is because that one small thing can lead to something huge.

Fact 3 -  Over 44,00 ANZAC troops died because they missed the spot hey were supposed to land at, they landed near a cliff where the enemy troops were. This fact is interesting to me because by making a small mistake can really cost you.

PBS Blogging Journey - Day 3, Bonus Activity

For the bonus activity of day 3 I had to create a DLO that provides information on the opening times and prices of Kelly Tarlton's. I got all my data from the Kelly Tarlton's site.

PBS Blogging Journey - Day 3, Activity 2

For my second activity of day three, I had to choose an animal from Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium and make an infographic about it. I chose to do a Penguin. In the DLO I have created I have talked about the diet, Predators, habitat and appearance. 

PBS Blogging Journey - Day 3 - Activity 1

This is my first activity of day 3. For this activity I had to use my smart searching skills to find out how much it would cost for my family to go to Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium. I think by doing this activity it really helped me find out how much costs. Now I know how much it costs, I think its pretty expensive.

PBS Blogging Journey - Day 2, Bonus Activity

For this activity I had to choose an activity that I would like to do, then find how much it would cost and why I chose it. I chose to do the Sky Jump. The reason I chose it is because I am afraid of heights and by doing the Sky Jump, I think I will concur my fear. For an Adult it would cost $225, for a student/backpacker with an ID will cost $195, and for a child aged 10 - 15 it would cost $175.

PBS Blogging Journey - Day 2, Activity 2

For the second activity of day two was, to create a new mascot that would do Scotty's job while he was on holiday. My Mascot's name was Bobby. I found making the shapes hard because I am not really good at making pictures on a google drawing. Other than that I think I did a good job.

PBS Blogging Journey Day 2, Activity 1

For second day we were exploring the Sky Tower. I had to find five facts about it. Something cool that I learnt from this activity is that on a clear day you can see 82 kilometers away from the tower. Wow that is ridiculous.

PBS Blogging Journey Day 1, Bonus Activity

For my bonus activity, I had to watch a short video and then choose a ride that you would recommend to a friend. Also describe how you might feel and write a 25 word summary. I think I would feel a bit nervous because the Roller Coaster goes really fast and does lot's of loops.  
25 word Summary - The Roller Coaster is a ride where you can find at theme parks like Rainbow's End, also theirs a height restriction that you have to exceed.

PBS Blogging Journey Day 1, Activity 2

Image result for stratosphere ride rainbows end

For this activity I had to find out the minimum height for the stratosphere, then we had to give a reason why I think there is a height restriction. There are two different modes such as the less extreme mode (45 degree swing angle) and the really extreme mode (360 degree swing angle). To go on the less extreme you need to be 130 cm or higher. Then to go on the really extreme your going to have to be 150 cm or higher.The reason I think there is a height restriction, is that maybe the seat belt will be to big for a smaller kid and they might fall off. Why do you guys think there is a height restriction?

PBS Blogging Journey Day 1, Activity 1

 For these holidays PBS have made there own Blogging Journey. For this activity I had to find the location Rainbow's End, and how much it will cost for a family pass. Also how much it would cost for my family to go there. I found this activity easy because I could easily find what I needed.
