Cress making

We were learning about how plants grow and seeds sprout. We grew cress and sprouted broad beans in class. We watched how water moves through plants by putting celery in coloured water.

This is how my cress changed over time.

My Quality Blog comments

We are learning how to make a quality blog comment. Here is a comment that I wrote on Room 9's blog. Mrs Grant taught us how to be positive and specific so we can post lots of blog comments.

My Favourite Movie!

This is the screencast that I made with Mika in Room 9. We talked about a movie we liked best at the Film Festival. This movie will show you positive ways to be thinking of when you're on the internet. Watch the words!

Carrying my Chromebook with two hands

In Term 2 Mrs Grant taught us about Kawa of Care.  This means that it is my job to look after my Chromebook carefully when I am working and when I carry it around the classroom.

Yum ANZAC Biscuits

On 25th April 2015, it was the 100th anniversary of ANZAC soldiers landing at Gallipoli.  We learnt lots of things about life and war for the ANZAC soldiers when we visited Auckland Museum in April.  We created poppies, we have written poems and letters about ANZAC and World War 1.

I have chosen to share my ANZAC biscuit poster because it is cool. I have learnt a little about ANZAC Day.

Making clay pizza

We are learning about fractions this term.  To remember and think about what we already know, we made sausage roll and pizza with clay. We divided our shapes into fractions.  Each piece was the same size. Then, we made some pizza toppings for a whole pizza.  We shared them out on our pizza.  Each quarter of my pizza had the same number of toppings.

Standing at attention!

This is one of the first Digital Learning Objects that we created and it was quite tricky.  I chose somewhere in the world I would like to visit one day.  Then I found an image of it on Google images.  Next, I cut around a photograph of my head using Pixlr so I could put  myself in that place.  Maybe I will travel there in the future in real life.

Rough and Tough

Malo e lelei and welcome.  My name is Solomone. I am nine years old and I go to Ruapotaka School. I am a Year 5. My teacher is Mrs Buchanan.
My favourite subjects at school are maths and reading because they’re interesting. My favourite sport and what I’m good at is rugby because it's rough and tough.
My favourite food is MacDonalds because there is a good taste to the burgers.
