The Summer Learning Journey for NEXT Foundation from Next Foundation on Vimeo.

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.

Place Value

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.

Rewindable Learning

Today my group for dance had been practicing our moves to Staying Alive. Our dance teacher's name is Zoe. She was the one who taught us this amazing dance from the 80s. My group and I were watching it on the T.V. rewinding to go back and watching it over again so that we can all go at the same time along with the music.


Today we were learning when to use a and when to use an before a word. If a word begins with a vowel (a-e-i-o-u) or a silent h for example I want an pancake for morning tea or I want an orange to eat with. When we use a we use it for words beginning with all the other words except for the vowels. The DLO above shows you what we use 'an' or 'a' for.

Let me show you something about lunch a PBS

Let me tell you something about lunchtime at PBS. When lunch starts we mainly grab our lunch out of our bags ready to eat. When people start to eat I can hear people talking and their rubbish rusting as they are ripped open.When people finished eating lots of them ran to the park or the courts to play. When we stand near the playground we hear people having lots of fun screaming, you can always hear the excitement of happiness.

As people enjoy themselves playing handball, you can hear the sound when the ball bounces upon their hands on to the ground until you hear “BANG”. Some people are angry when they lose and others happy when they win. When you see the juniors running down the hills, I always think they must having a lots of fun. Others play netball or basketball to have fun. You often see the ball flying in the air like a bird as they to get points by shooting the ball in the hoop.

As the bell rings everyone runs back to class, to wait quietly for the teachers.

Today we had 4 minutes of writing, then I had to read my partner to make sure it made sense and it had no mistakes. I found this hard because I didn't know what to write so that it could make sense. I had made a mistake in my writing but then Mrs Anderson helped me. I think next time I would try my best to write more and remember it should make sense.

Uea was therefore appointed chaplain to the group and promoted to sergeant and then sergeant major.

Can’t believe they made us do this!

I felt very nervous in the dark. My heart was racing, we set off behind each other in a line.We walked very slowly step by step, with other shoulder in front of us for us to see.

We were greeted by the glow worm community. As each  step we took we got further along the pathway as we all grabbed on each other and came closer. I could feel mud going throw my shoes. Each time the light went out the chatter of insects got louder and the screams of classmates came closer.

As we tiptoed across the small  bridge Mrs A and Mrs C was taking a photo of a huge spider. Mrs C shone the light at the spider and Mrs A screamed when the spider came back and stared at us. We were so excited to see the lights back at camp until a cricket started heading towards us on the deck.  

This is my camp recount story it is about the night walk at camp( To look at the glow warm) .I cant say it because you have to read my story until your finish, you should already have the idea thats happening  in my story.

Photo Story

This week I have finished my photo story of the days that I have been at camp. This blog post was hard to do because I had to look at all the photos and try my best to find myself.
