My favourite memory this year was our camp. The best part of camp was RainbowEnd! Have you ever been on the Rainbows end log flume? Well I have been on it Three times! When you go down the slide it feels like you are falling down, down into the deepest, darkest hole. I am very glad I was tall enough to go on the scary log slide.

Measurement poster-litres and millitres

WALT: explain what we have been learning about in measurement like capacity, length and mass. The most hardest one I had to do was mass because I don't have that much memory on how to weigh heavy things.  

I chose litres and millilitres as my measuring component because i have more knowledge on how to tell the capacity of things. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ’ฆ

Halloween Poster

WALT: make persuasive posters about why we should keep or stop doing Halloween๐ŸŽƒ. For the argument I chose yes because who would want to give up a public holiday in New Zealand?๐Ÿ‘ป

Te Kauru Camp 2018 - (Writing 2nd Draft)

Animal hospital

Wow! Baby animal skeletons have the most microscopic bones I have ever layed eyes on. While I was waiting for our classroom instructor I stared at a fossil of a baby kangaroo. Every little bone on the miniture rib cage was still atached. Being inside the hospital made me feel like a Zoologist despite I knew nothing about animals. There were so many interesting things like guessing the speed of animal heartbeats and reading facts about types of species. After a while the instructor told us to sit on the woven mat. We sat on the very uncomfortable mat and waited for her to start the lesson. She taught us what crusty bum was and how it affected kakapo’s. Then she started to throw kakapo plushes to my classmates. Also she handed out sheets of plastic covered paper that explaned the process of the disease. I’t was soo disgusting that I felt my eyeballs try to turn to the back of my head.

Steam Reflective Questions

2018 - Term 3 STEAM - ‘Coding and Arduino Boards’ Reflective Questions

WALT: post our steam reflective questions on our blog.

1. What was I learning and why?
We were learning how to make a circuit using a Arduino board and hook it up to a laptop and make the lights on the bread board that was hooked up to the Arduino board blink.

2.  What did I do well and how do I know?
I made 6 lights flash alternatively very easily with my partner
Jaxon by only putting wires in
the correct places and placing the resistors and the led’s.
the led’s are also known as light emitting diodes.

3.   What challenged me …?
Making the long code which took a while to make because it was tricky and you had to find one block then find the other.

4. What would I do differently next time
to make my
learning more successful …?
I would definitely slow down because every time I went fast the code came out wrong so me and Jaxon had to go over it again.

5. What have I enjoyed about the learning?
I have enjoyed learning how to use Snap4Arduino because its a fun way to code and watch the sprite move all over your screen. We also hooked our Arduino boards to the app and it gives us the codes we need to make the light flash.
