Week 10: Diggin through the archives

Kia ora everyone

Last week we remembered that we had an unfinished piece of learning we started back in Term two. It was a Mannequin challenge that included some information about our beautiful native birds. We were inspired to share our learning this way after seeing some awesome examples of 'sharing' at Tamaki Primary and Pt England School.

We would like to acknowledge Alex Smith for giving us permission to use his instrumental of Black Beatles as our backing track in this video. Thank you, Alex, you rock!

This was filmed on the 19th of June and has been under wraps until now... So here it is ladies and gentleman.

Pohatu Class Mannequin Challenge!

ps, we are planning on recreating this again in term four once we get some feedback to help us refine our mannequin skills

Week 8: Stop motion animations

Hey bloggers

This week we created some short films to share our learning (stop motion animations etc). 
We would love some feedback! If you have a moment please stop by and leave a comment helping us improve how we share our learning. Here is a sample of what we created.

Week 8: Red Cross People Savers

Malo le lei bloggers. Today we were lucky enough to have Rob (who volunteers for the Red Cross), come in and run a first aid course with us. We learned all about how to check if someone is responsive or not, call emergency services for help, correctly tying a sling, applying a bandage and so much more! We highly recommend all classes do this course because it is free and super informative!

Thank you, Red Cross and Rob for teaching us how to be 'people savers'

Week 6: Fun with SchoolKit freebies

Today my class planted a little garden. We used a little pot, water, measuring cup, seeds and soil. When I poured water onto the soil tablet I saw it turn into soil mixture. It was growing big.

Here are some photos of us using our measurement skills to plant our 'Little Garden' seeds. Thank you SchoolKit and New World for our Little Garden.
