My Maps

Kia Ora bloggers,

Today with Gerhard we did a cyber smart lesson and this time we used a cool map called My Map. My Map is a special map that lets you add different locations, and all you do is search up your locations
and press "add to map". Here is my map that I made with all of the schools in the Ako Hiko Cluster.

Blog you later!

Kia Ora blogging world,

WALT: collaborate using google apps

Today during cyber smart, Gerhard came into our class (Room 8)  and taught us about collaborating using google apps such as google docs.

From the cyber smart lesson, I learnt how to use the suggestion tool. It will be really helpful for me because if I ever want to give someone a suggestion, it will make me say things kinder and more specific. I also learned how to use the chat button, this will also be very helpful to me. If I ever need to chat as a group but don't want to overfill the comment section, I can use the chat place sensibly,

I hope you enjoyed reading about my post. I would really appreciate it if you would give me comments for feedback about my work.

Blog you later!

Kia Ora blogging world,

In class we have been learning about Matariki and why we celebrate it. We celebrate it because it represents the Maori new year.

Here is a video about some things of Matariki:

We also read 2 books about Matariki and made a google presentation of what we learned from the books. 

Hope you enjoyed, bye!

WALT: create a piece of art that shows examples of symmetry, reflection and rotation.

Kia Ora blogging world, 

Last week we did some awesome art related to geometry. We created a beautiful creation using one certain fold called a kite fold, (it is called a kite fold because it looks like a kite). There was one rule to making the art though, you had to have 3 geometric movements, symmetry, rotation and reflection. Symmetry is where if you cut something in half and both sided look identical. Rotation is if you have a piece, if you turn it, it will be a rotation of that other shape. Reflection is if you have a shape, it is like a mirror and there is another shape. 

Here is a screencastify of the three geometric movements:
