What have you learnt from someone out of school?

I have learnt how to use google doc from my cousin because he had a netbook at college and told me how to use it so I can do it at school.

My Netbook Reflection By Lavinia

Room 5's Reflection

Art - What I like about this year is that we did lots of art. Our artwork was based on the theme African animals. I liked this activity because we got to trace out our animals onto a piece of paper and then we painted the background to match the colour of a sunset. My animal that I used was a hippo. I used a hippo because it was easy to trace around and cut out. 

 Drama - I also like when we have drama with Mrs Eeles. In drama we learn about freeze frames and we play a game called survival. It is a game where you have to walk around and when Mrs Eeles says a number like 4 you have to get into a group of 4 and if there are any people left out they will get disqualified.

 Interclass Sports - This year we have been competing against room 7 in a lot of sporting events. Our first sport was softball, soccer, uni hockey and netball. Each game is either boys vs boys or girls vs girls. This year I have been involved in every sport against room 7. We have won 2 shields but recently bate room 7 at netball. We are beginning to start cricket and I can’t wait because I am playing for room 5’s cricket team.

What have I liked about this year: I’ve liked how we have done lots of art, my favourite piece of artwork was my animal silhouette painting because it was easy to do and it had lots of colors. I also enjoy making a reindeer as one of our christmas activities, we traced our foot to make the reindeer's head and traced our hands to make its antlers.

I have also liked having cricket lessons with Andy.Also we went on a few trips like our walk around the Tamaki River it was tiring.We also went on a trip to Eastern beach.At Eastern beach we had Lunch and a swim.

I have also enjoyed reading school journals with my teacher, answering questions in the book was fun and easy.

This year has been a really fun year because I have learnt a whole lot of new things on my netbook and have had fun discovering a new digital way of learning,

Yvette's end of year reflection

Art -When we do art we are not just painting we are also learning maths at the same time. When room 5 made a Fredriek Vordemberge Gildewart painting we needed to rule 5x5 centimetre squares and number coordinates in the squares. I like doing art because I like maths and I love to paint. Art is my favourite subject. Netbooks- Room 5 has learnt how to access different sites on our netbooks. We have learnt how to use,, and wallwisher. I like using these sites because it is fun educational activities and once you know how to use the site properly you can expand your knowledge with other people. Production - When we made our production costumes we combined art with crafting to make our costumes and animals. I loved making props because we had a part in making our own costumes and in the end our costumes turned out really good. We also performed on stage in front of an audience. I believe that helped us a lot with our production because we had a chance to perform and work together as a class. Sport - In room 5 we go out as a class and do class sports. I like doing sports in my class because we get to have some outdoor time and sports is fun. We get to play cricket, ripa rugby and a lot more fun games. It is good to do some sports once and a while because it keeps us fit and healthy and we get to learn how to play the games properly. Drama - Nearly every thursday we get to do drama with Miss Eeles. I like doing drama with Miss Eeles because we get to learn how to play fun educational activities and we love doing them. Also we learn how to keep our balance and stay steady when we do drama with Miss Eeles.

Thomas' end of year reflection

End of year reflection by Thomas Maths - This year Miss Paton has told me about a maths website called math whizz. math whizz has taught me how to add and subtract negative and positive numbers. I first got it wrong but in math Whizz you get hints and if you continuously get it wrong math whizz will answer it for you, telling you how to get the answer. math whizz also lets you redo lessons, trying to improve your score and time. I have done it over and over again and I am finally getting better. When you complete a lesson you get credits. Using credits you can buy toys, plants and even pets from the shop. My favourite pet is the boy dragon. E-Learning - E-Learning is still new to me, even though I have been using it for nearly a year. I have gotten used to typing instead of writing. I am familiar with google drive, floorplanner, lucid charts, kiwi kids news. They are all writing websites. The Math Websites we use are math whizz, xtra maths, studyladder and sumdog. Once a year, we head out to the Hoyts cenima in Sylvia Park for the manaiakalani film festival. We have to make movies and then we get to watch ours and other schools. Our movie this year was called Learning to Inspire. I was Alexander Graham Bell, Inventor of the first telephone. Sports - Our school took part in the orienteering competition in May. We were given a map, a compass and a piece of paper that we had to put the marks on. I usually came second or third and only came first once. This term we had cricket. We were taught how to hold the bat and the other weeks were just games. We won one, the other team won one and on the final game it was a tie. Conclusion - These were some of the highlights of my year in room five. These are the reasons why. I liked maths because it is not only exciting and fun but it will also help you in life. I like E-learning because it is easier than writing and we don’t have to waste trees making paper. I like sports because when you become a sports player and represent the world you can become famous.

Tim's Netbook Reflection

Here is Tim's Netbook reflection on who has helped him with his learning this year.

My Netbook Reflection By Fine

Netbook Reflection 2013

How has having a netbook connected to the internet helped my learning this year?

Can you tell us about something you have discovered and learnt by yourself this year?
This year I have learnt how to create a prezi by myself. A prezi is a site where you can put down steps on how to complete something for example instructions on how                             to make a sandwich easy as that. Once I had finished I shared it onto my blog by embedding a code. Then I wrote an interpretation on what a prezi is and how i created it. I learnt how to create a prezi at home during the holidays, because continuing school work on the holidays will help you improve with getting to the national standard.

What special thing have you learnt from your teacher this year?
My teacher Miss Paton showed me how to create a floorplan of our ideal classroom using the website floorplanner. This website helps people who are wanting to renovate or decorate their room or house. Floorplanner has a lot of objects that you can choose to have inside your room for example couches, chairs and much more. There is a place at the top of the site letting you have the option of choosing your room to be 2D or 3D. You can create your room with a birds eye view. Using a bird’s eye view helped me by seeing where all the objects are. After I had finished my floorplan Miss Paton printed it out and put it on our classroom wall. Something I liked about floorplan is there are variety of colours and options of furniture you can choose. When visitors come inside Room 5 they can see my floorplan and also other classmates floorplans. First we had made a draft on paper making sure we knew what we wanted in our ideal classroom.

What have you learnt from someone outside of your classroom this year
This year I showed my brother Leopote a website called Sumdog. Sumdog helps your learning with Maths. He has increased his learning with Maths since the last time he had gone on Sumdog or had completed a maths activity. Sumdog is a virtual site where you can have your own avatar.

How have you helped other kids learn this year?
This year I helped a few of Room 5’s  year 5 classmates. I helped them create a blog post. A blog post is when one of our students put one of their pieces of work on display to show the whole world. A blog post would go on their individual blog to showcase to the world. You can see which countries have showcased your work by looking at the top of my blog or on the side.

C3 Church Party Collage By Raymond

I had a great time at the C3 Church Party. I hope you enjoy my black and white collage.

C3 Church Party Collage By Fine

Check out my collage on the C3 Church Party. We had a  wonderful time and had lots of fun.

Room 5's Favourite Ice cream flavours By Lani

Vanillia was room 5's favourite choice of flavour, I think it was favoured because its a yummy simple tasting ice cream. Chocoalte and goody goody gum drops were the second most favourable flavours. I think room 5 likes them because everybody loves chocoalte and goody goody gums is full of lollies. Only one person liked banana, I think this is because banana is a fruit and ice cream is sweet and not many people like mixing healthy foods with sweet things. Two people choose strawberry as the thier favourite ice cream I think this is because not many people like to eat bright coloured foods.

This is my collage on the c3party at Panmure Bridge School.
I made this collage, it was very easy. If you want to make this collage you need to go on Then you need to choose how many boxes you you want.

Statistical Investigation: Room 5's Birthdays By Lavinia

This is my graph on room 5's birthday's
Miss Paton said that we had to do a statistical investigation. We got to chose a topic and I chose room 5's birthday's. Then we had to do a graph, The highest month is May, the reason why it is so high because lots of people we born on May. The least highest was January because not that many people were born in January. My favourite month is July because my birthday is celebrated during this month.

My What's for Lunch? presentation By Yvette

This is my What's for Lunch? presentation. We needed to pick ingredients from the budget priced sandwich list, the medium priced sandwich list and the premium priced sandwich list. When we had finished picking our foods and  fillings we needed to add the total amount we spent on our sandwiches. Then we needed to work out how much it will cost to eat your budget priced sandwich, medium priced sandwich and premium priced sandwich for 4 days, 5 days, 21 school days of November and 193 school days for the entire year. You will find my strategies and answers in my presentation. I HOPE YOU ENJOY! :-)

What's for Lunch? By Tim

This is my What's For Lunch Presentation. We had to do a type of sandwich like Premium Subway sandwich, Low Cost Budget Sandwich and Medium Priced Sandwich. We had to do that in any order. After that we had to add up the total and show our strategy. After we had to figure out how much would it cost for a sandwich in 5 school days in a week. Then we had to figure out something trickier than the 5 days in a week, we had to figure out how much would it cost for the entire month of November. Then we had to do something even more trickier than the 5 days in a week and the entire month of November, we had to figure out how much it would cost for the whole entire year.
