Since the start of term three we have been doing Taekwondo. In our first session we all got a wake up call from the taekwondo instructor. We were all told that we could only speak in outside voices. And we always had to say yes Ma'am and yes Sir to our teachers. It was really fun after that first session because we grew to know our taekwondo teacher. We also got to do a competition every week, we do it on a Thursday. Yesterday our competition was the scissor kick. I came first in my class the two times that we did it. Here are some photos of us warming up for our kicking competition.

Making A Good Comment

Yesterday for Cyber Smart we were looking at making quality blog comment. We were adding Positive, Helpful And Thoughtful commenting starters on a padlet. After we had done that we went onto Ako Hiko to find a blog to comment on. I chose New Windsor School Room 26. I did a comment on there library post. It was really fun doing all the parts of a comment individually. It was not as hard as I thought it was going to be a lot harder. This is the commenting template.

Math's Creations

Yesterday for maths Te Waka Ako were looking at strand maths. We were asked to make a frame for a house or a tent. We were only aloud to use Toothpicks and modelling clay (Plasticine) and cardboard, we had One hour to make our creation.

It was really hard because it kept on falling down and I would run out of Plasticine, I couldn't get the right build. So I went back to the basics and I just made a little box or cube then I built a little Pyramid on top so it would be a little house. The best thing was trying to make the creation.

I was really happy that it wouldn't fall over anymore. I found out that the easier that you built it, the easier it was for it to stand up. I thought it was really fun and challenging trying to make it stand up and to do it with the amount of materials. Here is what I built, feel free to comment.

Creative Writing

Yesterday we had creative writing. We got to find an image off the internet and write about it, it was really fun. We only had twenty minutes to do it that's why it's quite small. I wrote about the All Blacks because they play the sport I love and have lots of people who I look up to. It was such an intense game that I wrote about that's why I wanted to write about it. It was fun being able to express all my ideas about the sport I love onto a game that was so close and was gut wrenching for the Irish Supporters. Thanks for checking out my post, feel free to comment.

Smart Choices

A couple of days ago we made a comic strip on smart choices on our Email. Before we made the comic strip we made a sorting map on things that are good for your school account, good for own account and what is inappropriate. It was fun making the comic strip because we got to take funny photos. The only reason why how I knew to react is because of James and Gerhard in Cybersmart.  Check out the comic down below, Don't forget to comment.

CyberSmart - Wordcloud

Yesterday for CyberSmart we were looking at our digital footprint. We decided to make a Word cloud with our history on our Chromebooks. We saw Gerhard's history and we saw a word that looked pretty odd and that word was Proposal. We asked him why he had Proposal on there and it was about him going for a new job. Unfortunately we had no internet so we made them today. There will be an image down below of my World cloud.

It was fun learning about what Gerhard does on his work account and how little cookies in our computers talk to each other and put advertisements on Facebook and other social media sites. He also talked about how are computers are listening to us, Gerhard also showed us that by saying "Hi Siri" and the it replied. We were all in shock. He then showed us his Word cloud then he had to work with another group, It was really fun. Don't forget to comment.

Yesterday/Today we did CyberSmart on thinglink. We previously made a picture on BeFunky and published that onto thinglink then we used the rule of two. The rule of two is two bits of information about yourself then its two videos that link to yourself finally you add two websites that link to yourself. It was really cool because I got to see myself on YouTube.
