Reflection Week 6 Term 4

This week Room 8 are writing about different ipad apps.  We are looking at how they relate to our learning and if they would be good in other classes too.  I am doing the app called keynote and you will see something about that on my blog soon.  Some of the apps that room 8 have on there ipads could be useful in other ipads in other classes.

Reviewing apps on our iPads

This is why I think that every class should have the app called keynote. You could be making some real cool slide shows with text for just the little cost cost of $14 This app is enable. Is there any bad things about this app? No the best app you could find.  there are no problems with it or any thing.  If you want to download keynote this is the link to view in tunes.

Reflective Learning Post

This Week I have been reading this book called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  The book is all about a small kid that really loves chocolate.   Charlie lives with his mother, father and 4 old people. Those 4 old people are his two old grandmas and his 2 old grandfathers.  There is a problem because charlies mother and father don't have much money.  Because they don't have much money that means that charlie doesn't get to have much chocolate.  But something happens. You will need to read the story to find out.

My Animation

Short Story

Jimmy’s Big Wait One day there was a fire engine driving down the road. There was a person hiding behind a bush on the side of the road. He was a robber when the fire engine was getting close to the robber the robber snuck out and shot the fire engine with its guns. The gun noises was as bad loud as house down. The fire engine went out of control and smashed into the apple store. The apple store wet on fire and the shop keeper ran out and put a sign up saying closed for a year. Three days later I was driving down the road to go to the apple store. I was going to buy an iPod touch. When I got there I saw the sign closed for a year. I was disappointed and drove back home. ONE YEAR LATER I drove back down the road and went into the apple store. Then I bought my iPod touch and walked out of the shop and drove back home.

My Time Table.

Is the world a dangerous place for kids?

The world can be a dangerous place for kids because there are tornadoes and earthquakes and lots of other hazards in the world.  The world is a safe place in some places but I don't think that I would be scared about that.  Kids will turn into a adult at some stage so they will probably be ok.

Jerry Palotta

On the 30th and the 31st of May all the year 5’s from Myross Bush School went to room 8 because the year 6’s went to Dunedin for young leaders with Mss Stewart and Mr Herring.  That meant the year‘s had Mrs Wilcox. We decided to learn about Jerry Palotta.  Jerry Palotta is a children’s book author and he writes lots of A-Z and Counting books. He got sick of the A for Apple, X for X-ray and the Z for Zebra. He decided to do lots of research and info.

We read some of his books and we got some good ideas.  We all had to Put A-Z in our writing books and then come up with things from A-Z of Myross Bush School for example A for Aviary and R for Rugby.  Once we had done that then we all got together and we picked out all the good ones.  We thought we could make a book from A-Z for Room 1 to learn the alphabet.  We all got to pick a letter each to draw pictures on that page. People who got them all done first got to do another one if there were any more pages to be done.  Once we had all the pages done we got them laminated and then binded into a book. Then some of as went to Room 1 presented the book.  And that is what all the year 5’s did in two days while the years 6’s were at young Leaders.


I have been working on my gropes quickie and we are doing the topic: What Makes Myross Bush School’s Technology cool?  In my group is Cameron, Zach, Robbie and I.  Making them is fun and we have just finished adding our pictures and voices.

Friday 3/6/11

Today we had assembly and we had a Spellathon. We all had to learn 100 words for the first 5 weeks of term 2.  People could sponsor you and then the school gets the money.

Over the last few days I have been learning about Qwikis.  They are like podcast but with pictures and voices.  I learnt how to  make a script use them.

I am in a group of 4 with Cameron Zach Robbie and I.  We are doing the topic technology.  We have some good photos of the iPod Touch, iPad, Macbook, Macbook Pro and the iMac.  Our next step is to practice our script and record our voices.


My Super Hero

Hi I have made a Super Hero and his name is Benji.  My super hero lives in a house and he is strong as anything.  Now I am going to tell you a bit about him.  My Super Hero has a huge cape for flying and some big eyes for seeing.  My super hero has got a big mouth with white teeth.  He has brown hair like a piece of brown wool.  My hero has a lot of hair and it is all combed down. He has black trousers and he is really strong.

And that is my super hero!!!

Why do we blog?

Why do we blog? Well I can tell you why.

  1. How many times do you see other peoples hard learning and thinking?

  2. You learn an amonut of other ICT tools that you learn.

  3. Other people can see them.

  4. Other people can leave a coment.

If you just wright really hard work in a book who is going to read it apart from you and your teacher and mabey if you take your book home once or twice a year.

Blogs are really good because:

  1. You can keep them for ever.

  2. You can add to them when ever you want.

  3. Any one can see what you have been doing.
