Stop Motion

This week we have been playing around with Stop Motion. Stop Motion is a program which you use to make movies but instead of video it uses photos. Here is an example of one I made with Pouri a class mate.

Italy Post Card

This a Movenote Postcard about how I went to Venice with Jaime Leigh. (It's not real) We made these postcards because we are studying Italy in class. I hope you like it.

Pigs and Ducks

Yesterday we had to solve this problem and post about how we solved it.I solved this problem by simply just thinking about basic facts and which ones added up to 28.
Here is how I did it
2x8=16 Duck legs
3x4=12 Pig legs
Which means there are 8 ducks :) 
Comment below how you worked it out

Today in writing Room 17 has been learning about Onomatopoeia. This simply is words that imitate a sound. We watched a video of Fireworks because in New Zealand Guy Fawkes has just happened. Guy Fawkes is a holiday in New Zealand that is the only time we can buy or purchase fireworks. While we were watching the video we were writing down Onomatopoeia, Adjectives, and Verbs. We then used those words to make a Tagul. Tagul is a site where you can take as many words as you want and create them into what ever shape you want. But before you go start making amazing creations you have to first make an account. If you want to check it out click this. Here is mine.

CD Case Beans

This term for Science we have been learning about Plant life cycles but also animal life cycles. One of the experiments we have been working on are CD Case beans.
We made these by

Opening the CD Case and putting one scoop of soil in.
We hen pushed it to the bottom and added seed in middlle
Then we closed the CD Cases and taped them closed except the top Side so we can water them.
My beans longest root is 3.5 cm long from the main root. 

Here is a Picture of my Bean so far.

The Symposium

Today me and three other students Jaime-Leigh, Daniel, and Jack got to be present a program in the symposium. We decided to do reading eggs. It was really fun we got to teach other students and teachers how to use it. If you want to use this site you can click this. But you have to sign up and it costs money but I think its worth it. Overall I had an awesome day with my friends and hope we get to do this again.

Here is what the Home page looks like.
Here is a quick video that shows you how to use it.

My Fish Writing

On the first week of school we had a revliver and we had been working on alliteration, Similes, and Haiku Poems. I challenge you to try and say my alliteration sentence 5 times in a row without mucking up.

Last term we had a reliever and we got to make presentations about ourselves, but there was a catch we had to use similes and only similes.

Passion Week Speech

This is a speech about why we should have Passion Week.

Hi my name is Liona and in my case I think we should have passion week. I have three main points on why we should have

Firstly we should have passion week because  it is really fun and you build connections with different teachers and students. Some of you may think that, well that doesn't really matter but it actually does. Because you make new friends and become more confident, and independent.

Secondly in my opinion in passion week you still learn you are just learning something a lot more interesting and you actually like it. Some of you are probably wondering why is this so good? Well actually this is great because you become more engaged in your learning and work more actively.

Thirdly we get awesome experiences and make cool memories with our friends.

In conclusion I have told three reasons why we should have passion week. I hope I have convinced you

The Duffy SHow

WALT: use amazing adjectives to describe an even

“Screeeeeeeeeeeeech” went the Mandrake.  The whole school were blocking their ears desperately. It was a high pitched, screechy, scratchy scream. Although it was very noisy and loud everyone was amazed and curious of where the terrible sound was coming from. Harry and Hermione then put it on the table and walked away. Sienna got up and grabbed the Mandrake saying “It’s my turn”. She then pulled it out and put it in repeatedly. All you could hear was the terrible screech that the Mandrake let off.

Sienna then put it back and closed the book.

Follow me to my special place. Where my family and I visit my beautiful mum. Where the scorching hot sun shines and the colourful flowers all glisten.Where the soft breeze blows in your luscious hair.

Follow me to my special place where you can just be free.

Follow me to my special place, the Cemetery where my mum is buried.
