Netbook reflection 2013

Netbook reflection 2013,

It is a pleasure that I still got my netbook because it had hardly any problems wrong with it but only a couple of times.As maths is going on I am getting more confidence at my basic facts,But not just my basic facts I learnt heaps of different strategy in different ways.It’s a great device to work online and do your own things.

If we didn't have an laptop we wouldn't have an opportunity to go online we will just do everything on a piece of paper.In maths I use to struggle heaps in maths but now I don’t because this progr
am Xtra maths had helped me with all my basic facts.

Maths whizz is another program that helps with different strategy's and also ideas.My teacher has showed me how to use my Google drive,Go on things for learning.Each week we have an rotation and during that rotation id learn new drawing tools and how to make a Gif picture.

Also I’d help some friends that really needed help with there net book. I’d thank Mr Burt and Mrs Burt for this great opportunity that we got net books to use instead of using piece of paper.I have learnt so much people that need to find there things,look for there pictures,forgotten which folder they put their stuff in. 

YouTube is one of the programs when you can get search anything,there are all sorts of Maths strategy's that are able to watch,learn and if you need help.
This is the best thing I can ever use at school,A big huge thanks to Mr,Mrs's Burt for our Netbooks.


Learning Highlights

Learning Highlight's,

With our netbooks we get to goon different programs that can help with our maths and with our maths I learnt so much things that now I am working with the year 8's and all there strategy's.In maths I use to be at year 5 stage but all this work I have done had made me move up to year 8 stage and I feel so good after all those terms.My family are proud of me for trying and trying to get there and now I'm.

Highlight of the year

It was really cool to be in room twenty two when we get to work on our net-books each day doing writing and also Maths Whizz .Maths,Maths every day after morning tea,Its nearly the end of the year for the year 8's so hopefully they pick more things before they go off to high school.
My other highlights are learning more things about maths and trying to get to the top.I really liked it when we had the first time to do any thing like playing good games like mine-craft.Some of us could play on-line so we can build heaps of houses on mine-craft.Friends are cool at helping you finding things and also the year 8's now it going to be me as a year 8 soon.Dancing,sports,and games are an very nice thing to do.Thanks to all the teacher's for every thing.

Action world

Action world was like a bouncing castle place but mixed with cool things.The jump n slide was so relaxing just jumping off and landing on a soft area.I really enjoyed the jousting bridge how we got to fight with a partner and knock them off.

The crazy Ladder was so crazy when your nearly to the top,I tried like five times but I’m still not there.I finally got a chance to go on the hire wire by my self trying to get to the end but I didn't get near the end.Rising my feet from the ground I hardly walked so I’d just watched everybody have fun and playing around.

It was free time and yes I got to go on every thing again.The best thing ever I went on would be the High wire,high and falling off.Paris was like a pro just walking straight and nearly walking back where he started.

It was time we left back towards school after we all that fun at action world.My highlight of the day was having fun with my friends and having a great time

Swimming Lessons

During the two weeks of swimming lessons I learnt much important things like not to touch the ground from far away.The instructors were awesome at telling us what to do in the water,But now I haven’t swimmed on the second week because my leg was injured.The highlight of the day in the first week Thursday, was just swimming with my friends and learning much more things.

I think I improved swimming much fast to the end and back.

My First day at school

Title:Texas-First day at school

Putting on my bright black and red uniform I brushed my hair as I walked outside to the car.Clicking my belt off I started to walk to class,waving by to my mum I knocked on the door twice. I thought there were going to be a load of children but wait one steep and there I was smiling at the teacher as she was taking me to the chair.

As the teacher passed me the book someone had helped me but who I forgot.Yes “ring ring the loud noise,i got my morning tea and sat next to my friend.There went the bell I went inside and the teacher went and gave me an activity to do.I’d had to do so much work for the first day.

There I went home early,so tired  i’d hardly walk but tomorrow I can.

Spider Robot

Did you know that there is a spider robot? Well there is
,it was invented by Matt Denton a man that took a long time to built it.This invention is the cost over a thousand pounds and that it was supposed to be a cool and fun looking spider robot.

People might think this is a toy to play with but it is not,This man that built it wasn't the only one.The electronic engineer took about four years to do the legs that are made out of metal.

Yesterday was the best day ever because someone famous is coming to our school. Waiting and waiting I was nervous because this visitor was a famous singer.He is also in a band and sings with a few friends.

as he came through the hall  the ambassadors were leading him the way to his chair we were all excited.The kapa haka group were making there way onto the stage to perform their show. Watching with excitement the boys were going hard out like there were proud.

In that last minute the kapa haka group walked their way of the stage. the senior hip hop group were up on the stage getting ready to perform.It was very cool watching them dance with heaps of moves.

The time was up the special visitor came up with a huge chunk of money on a check.I couldn’t believe it he gave one hundred thousand dollars award to our makanalani.It was very sad because he told us about his life.

We left and head back to our class to finish off,my friend Jacob was happy.

Camp Arguement

In our opinion we  thinking we should have a year 7 and 8 camp. It would be great to have camp this year because we get to have new experiences.  We also get to learn outdoors with our friends and play some new and interesting games. Camp is also a great time to have fun with our friends.

Camp gives us  an opportunity to learn new and creative games .We learn best when we're outdoors during the morning and afternoon.The best part I like is learning  new skills.

Another  great  reason to have a year 7 and 8 camp you get to learn a little bit more of your friend. But we also get to eat delicious food

Most importantly camp gives you time to  be responsible for your self and to be  helpful.It’s also a time when we get to practise  using your  W.I.T.S. But the most capable thing that you should is listen because you might forget what the instruction was you have to do.

We know that camp cost heaps but we could still pay it weakly. It’s like that for a reason it pays off our breakfast ,dinner and trips. Hopefully we could get repay that money back and give it back to our mum or dad .

Hopefully next year our parents will get to talk about camp at home-school-partnership.
So therefore we think that we should have a camp.

Texas Writing

One cold day, Pt england school went to the reserve to have a picnic. We got got there and suddenly i forgot to bring my water bottle so i just waited for my mum to come. Mr Burt our principal said some things and then we had to walk to the far end to put our bags there,i asked Mrs Nua if she wanted a lolly and said”Yes .

Me and my friends eat morning tea before we go to play. I said” Jacob should we go skim some rocks” and he said “yes”. Walking to the sand we couldn’t hardly find any rocks so we went to make something out of clay. It was hard to make some thing because it took too long.

I saw my mum with my water bottle and my new jacket she bought. I went over to get it and go back to play,i went to play softball and i was batting first,I hitted the ball with the bat and i ran to base three.

Once the batter battered i got a home run and had a rest because i was running like a tiger.I saw team 5 getting ready to swim but i wasn’t i just had a rest and ate my lunch.I looked at my drink bottle it had a flavour of lemon and lime,I just noticed my foot was bleeding and i know why i was the cracked glass just sitting there i was time to go so we packed up and went to our teacher.

We were on our way back to class,
