Mini golf course in the classroom

Today we planned & built a mini golf course in the classroom. We filmed it for the latest #NZschooltimelapse project, this is the unedited footage.

We were learning about planning, building and problem solving. Also we got to demonstrate how well we can contribute & participate in groups and practise our thinking skills.

I'm eager for 2 room 1 students to edit this & put some titles, music & effects on the film, maybe next week...

10,000 Hits = cake.

On Monday our room got some cake that was made by our teacher Mr Walker. The icing looked like it was jaffa tasting, the cake tasted SOOO yummy that I wanted another bit. The icing was really rich, the cake was covered in orange icing & the writing was made out of black licorice. The licorice said 10,000 hits! & the blog symbol was put in more icing. The icing was very, very, very orange. The cake was covered of M&M's & the cake had all of the colours like brown, red, green & blue.

If I'm making your mouth WATER well then I'm sorry. This is a post on a cake that our teacher made & as well as the cake we got it was also SPCA Cupcake day, & some people made their cup cakes.    

This is what the cake looks like. I told you it was mouth watering. You can see the M&M's sctered all over the cake And the icing & the black licorice that awas used to do the writing

My Adventure Learning Mummies in Egypt

Today just after singing, when all room 1 kids just got back in the classroom Mr Walker said to us to sit on the mat because he had to show us something. Mr Walker was showing us who has their topic for Adventure Learning. Then he showed us on this other blog he said that we have to start our Adventure Learning planning over because it didn't have any "I wonder" in the questions so he put some questions on the board and then we had to answer them.                                                                                                                                  After morning tea.It was Google doodle but it was  changed to Adventure Learning plan and i had to finish my Mummies in Egypt so i did finish off my work it was not that hard.

Room 1 has just reached its goal of 10,000 page hits and are thinking about what they might do for their next goal and its celebration.

My Adventure learning.

Our school is doing Adventure learning and what I'm doing is stoats for my adventure. We  also need to create a poster about a biosecurity risk, like a pest like stoats or weasels. The weasels were brought here to eradicate the stoats and the stoats were brought here to eradicate the rabbits. The rabbits were carried here for extra food because they thought that the food will run out, but the bad thing about rabbits is that they breed quickly which means that the vegetation will go all rotten and we people need to eat some veggies.

What is Biosecurity?

Biosecurity poster by Carys

On Monday we were learning about biosecurity and what it is.  I learned that biosecuity has a company that is trying to keep diseases away from New Zealand safe.  Here are some diseases or risks, rock snot (didymo),  pests and the red vented bulbul. The red vented bulbul is a bird that has a red patch on its bottom and is trying to destroy fruit. By Francis
