We have been learning about Key Competency's in class. Our group thinks Thinking is the most important because if you don't think you can't do anything at all. Everything we do everyday needs us to be thinking.

Please fill in our surevy so we can prove Thinking is the most important Key Competency.


Participating & Contributing

Our class is looking at Key Competency's. Grace, Devon and I think Participating and Contributing is the most important Key Competency. For example, if we didn't use Participating & Contributing on camp, no one would get anything done, we would have no group activities and everyone would be tired and we would be SUPER hungry! Please take our survey so we can prove to our class that Participating & Contributing is the best Key Competency! :)

Camp Inquiry-Managing Self Survey

At the moment we have been doing a camp inquiry booklet.We all chose the  Key Competency that we thought was the most important on camp, we think that Managing Self is the most important.

 We have been collecting information from different resources e.g our principle-Mrs Gulbransen and Miss Mason to prove that our key Competency is the most important. We have been making surveys and we put them on survey monkey to help prove our point that Managing Self is the most important Key Competency on camp.

The link to our survey is: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KF7RZVS
Please take our survey.

Camp Inquiry Survey J and L

We have been doing a camp inquiry project and as part of that we had to make a survey. We had to prove that our key competency was the best! The website we made it on is called survey monkey. Here is our link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BRWPN8D we had to do 10 survey questions on our topic; relating to others.

There were 5 groups and each of them had a key competency to work on.

There is managing self, relating to others, thinking, understanding language symbols and text and finally participating and contributing.

Make sure you check out our surveys!

The photography challenge.

This week we have been assigned to a photography challenge. The students had to learn and use the rule of thirds in their  two photos within the school grounds. If you didn't know the rule of thirds it is... if you were to have a grid on your camera while you were taking your photo ( which we actually had for planning, ) you would not put your main focus in the center of your grid screen ( which again most peoples gut instinct would jump to do. ) Instead you would put in the corner somewhere for maximum effect and then you could get some detail on where you are, who you are with, etc. That's it! Pretty complicated to explain, but if you try it you will get the hang of it. Same as every new thing you try.The winner of the challenge will win an ipod touch!!!! This competition is open to anyone so you can compete. Go on, get snapping!

We also learned about angles of the camera, getting lower for a tower effect on the object or up high for a birds-eye-view over your centerpiece.

This is a photo of a ladybug found in our school gardens by Grace and the photo was taken by Mrs McRobert, room 3's teacher.  ( Left. )

In loving memory of Mischief Frederick Coxwood ( the ladybug, ) who is flying to the top of the class with his kind heart and budding talent. He is resting in our school gardens peacefully with all our love and care.

What the most interesting thing we have done in the past week in my opinion....

Over the past week, in my opinion, the two most interesting things were.... 
When we had Mr Deacon. He gave us a poem, then we had to get into groups of three. We had to decide on our parts -(with some people it took a debate!) We practiced our little hearts out until we got it right!
After everyone was ready we had our own little concert, showing off our wonderful talents. We all had some laughs!!  :)
The other thing that was cool was with Mrs McRobert. We had to write a re-count about what we did in the weekend. First we had to write up a plan for our re-count,  in the plan we had to include the "when,what,why,who and how". We also needed to come up with three events and put a star* next to the event we were going to describe the most. Another thing we had to do was come up with six descriptive  words we would use in our re-count.
Lastly we needed to come up with our conclusion, so we wouldn't babble on forever!
After all that we had to write our re-count with detail and description.
We had many other things to rave about at the end of this week all because of our wonderful teacher, the one and only Mrs McRobert!!!   By Jordana.

Basketball training with Mike from the Nelson Giants.

On Monday 21st of February we had basketball training with Mike from the Nelson Giants basketball team. We worked with him from 11:45 until 12:20. The class learnt basketball skills such as the Long Drop, the Egg Beater and the Nutcracker as well as a easy way to shoot perfectly. It involved making your arm a giraffe's neck and flicking your wrist, then pointing your fingers downwards which, makes the ball fly high  above your head while spinning and falling into the net. He also taught us the proper way to dribble, including how to dribble down by your knees, with your left hand, right hand, with two balls and how to dribble while flicking the ball between both hands. He gave us some things to practice at home and made us do push -ups!!! We had  ball! (He he!) We are very  thankful for this brilliant experience! Thanks Mike!!! :)
