Drawing Caterpillars

Today we learnt how to use some more tools on the iPads.  We had to use different widths of the pen to draw a caterpillar and a butterfly.  Then we used the correct colours to add details to our picture and wrote a sentence about our picture.  It was exciting to see our work made big up on the Apple TV.  Class 16

Working hard earns a Duffy Certificate

Phoenyx has been work hard in class and earned herself a Duffy certificate and a book.  Phoenyx finds it is fun to use the iPad and stylus for her reading activities. Class 16

Construction Team

This week at Maker Space we made some cubes out of wood.  This week we worked in pairs and we needed to listen carefully to make our cube the same as Mr Barks.  We put glue on the edges to hold them, then Mr Barks stapled them.   We are proud of our efforts of working together. Class 16

Learning to use Kid Pix

William is busy learning to use Kid Pix.  He found it could be "tricky" trying to use the mouse to draw and colour in circles.  You did a good job William.  Class 16

A Watermelon Party

Our introduction to Snaggolf

We enjoyed having a go a Snaggolf today.  Phoenyx and Tevita learnt that they had to stand with their feet together facing the ball and put their two hands on the club.  It wasn't easy to make the ball go onto the target.  Good shot Phoenyx and Tevita. By Mrs Dwyer

Makerspace Fun

We had fun at Makerspace today.   We made lots of squares using different things like our bodies, popsicle sticks, blocks and lego.  By joining up our squares, we made a great piece of art to display on our wall.  Mrs Dwyer Class 16

A photo of a photo?

We had to find something yellow to take a photo of and Anthony took a photo of Phoenyx's yellow sneakers.  Jade wanted to see if she could take a photo of Anthony's photo on his iPad.  Witari and Kamryn watched to see what would happen.  You can see what our clever children did.

Look what we can do!

We have been learning to take photos on our iPads.  Mrs George took us outside to take a photo.  We had great fun finding just the right angle and closeness to take a photo.  Here are some of us taking our first photos.  Watch our blog to see some of our efforts.
