Today we had very important visitors from the the Next foundation, Auckland University and Manaiakalani come to our school to launch the Summer Learning Journey program. Rachel who created the SLJ come speak to us about how the program helps us get better at reading over the holidays. The NEXT Foundation think the SLJ is such a good idea they have given money so that it can keep going and more kids across NZ can take part. After our visitors spoke to us we all watched the movie that was made about the Summer Learning Journey in our class. I want to say a huge thank you to the Next Foundation for providing a yummy lunch for the whole school.

On goggle. There is a really cool game called google Scratch. This was a very awesome game. This game challenged my head because every time I got out I was addicted to try again. As I was on one level and then continued to the next it got harder and harder.

Today I have been learning how to use srceencastify. To do this i had to find a math DLO to talk about for the screencastify. The thing that i found hard about this was that I had to keep on recording over and over again. The thing that I find easy about today with the screencastify was reading out loud and getting it right.

In class we watched a movie called Princess Bride. We did a lot of activities and my favourite one is character Introduction document. I also learnt about the characters and how to recognise who is the antagonist and the protagonist in other movies. We completed many activities about the Opening Sequence, Character introduction, Fantasy Conventions, Shot types and Narrative theory.
