Animals At War

 In literacy, we are learning how to make connections to a text and make inferences with them. This term, we have been focusing on the first World War that happened 100 years ago.  Today we read a book about mascots at war, the book included a few words that we could make a connection with. Mrs Tele'a gave us a task, to choose a few sentences that we could make connections with and put a inference between them. The following presentation ( slide 5 ) shows you the connections I made with the book ( First World War Mascots ) and how I inferred them too. What I have learnt overall is how I can make connections with a book and how I can make inferences between the text and my connection.

Using The Point England Way Online

Late morning, our maths group had the chance to communicate with a teacher from Tamaki primary about how we connect ' The Point England way ' online. As you can see, I have included a few bullet points related to how I show The Point England way online. I hope that you can apply these tips to your online life.

Anzac Biscuits

 Every Friday's, after assembly, team 5 gather in to small groups for Zeal zone time - which the teachers hold. This Friday, we  found ourselves in Mrs Tele'a cooking zeal zone which was exciting. I have learnt that as we bake the ' Anzac biscuits' we are also learning the history behind them. I hope that you get to sometime make these in your spare time!

Cyber Smarts!

 This early afternoon, our maths group had the chance to talk with another teacher about what is true on the internet and what is not. To help us, we were given the chance to watch a small documentary movie based on spaghetti - was the information we were seeing true? Following that, we got to talk with the teacher about what makes this true and what makes it false. Here is a google drawing to help others to know if their information is valid
