Commonwealth Games

Hi, everyone!

Currently, the Commonwealth Games are taking place in Birmingham, England and will be finishing today. So, for Literacy this morning, we had to do a bit of research on the multi-sport event.

Below is my finished presentation and I’ll be posting my create task for it soon after this :))

Measurement – Conversions

Hi, everyone!

This is my maths task for today. It is all about converting measurements. So like, grams into kilograms, centimetres into metres, etc. I found this task quite nice and I’ve already learnt about converting measurements at the library with my study group so that was a little bit of pre-learning, I guess.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy :))

Mount Wellington Drawing (Before and After)

Hello, everyone!

In the image attached below in this blog post is the final product of my before and after Mount Wellington Google Drawing! I’m really happy with the way it turned out.

As you can see, there is quite a large difference between the left and ride side of the drawing. One of the main differences being the difference between the living situations. In the “before” side, there are huts, whilst in the “after” side, there are some more modern homes.

The reason why I put a lake on the “before” side is because the Tāmaki River/Estuary would help travellers to get wherever they wanted to easily. So back then, having access to many parts of Aotearoa easily would’ve be extremely helpful.

I hope you like it :))

Would You Rather Be Sticky or Itchy Forever?

Hi, everyone!

Today for Cybersmart with Mr. Goodwin, Room 4 learnt about Google Forms and we even made our own. We learnt how to add images to the form so that it could be more interesting for the person answering it. I based my form on the question “Would you rather be sticky forever, or itchy forever?

Personally, I think I would choose itchy forever and just use some itching cream, and just hope that it relieves the itching. The image attached below is what my classmates chose, but what would you choose?

If you would like to answer the form, here it is :))

Solving Equations

Hi, everyone!

This is my maths task for the day. It’s all about figuring out what each letter from an equation equals. If that doesn’t make sense, taking a look at the task would probably give you a better understanding. This task was actually pretty fun, and I enjoyed it since I understood how this type of maths works.

Enjoy :))

Protect Our Oceans – Poster

Hi, everyone :))

As we all probably know, it is extremely important to take care of the Earth.
From the plants and forests, to the many bodies of water and unique creatures that accompany us on this very planet, we should all be doing as much as we can to keep the Earth healthy.

On Monday, BLAKE NZ-VR came to our school to teach each classroom in Team 5 more about the importance of marine life and the differences between unprotected parts of the water and protected parts using VR. There were many obvious changes, such as little to no seaweed, a few fish, and grey water.

So with that being said, everyone in Room 4 created a poster about protecting our oceans. We had to include 2 facts in it, readable yet fitting fonts, and 3 animals!

I’m really happy with the way my poster turned out! I used Google Drawing for the text and poster in general, and Photopea for the right side of the ocean’s colouring. I hope you like it!
