Pro's & Con's ( Living a life in a light house )

This week we have been learning how to identify the positive/Bad on buying a light house. As a group we discovered that some lighthouses can be in the middle of the ocean and some not so far out on the shore. Here for our con's we found out that light houses have plenty of stairs and on each block is a room. Did you know that when you are in a light house you travel from helicopter back to land and also get sent lots of food as the signal is bad. One of the bad things about light houses is that if your sick medical services wont be able to get to you in time as the signal is bad from out in the ocean. Other then that I think living in a light house is fun as you read all our pro's. Our Con's explain the bad things that might happen like big storms.

Lighthouse Poster

This week we have been learning how to make a DLO and we also learnt about Light houses. Light houses can be for sale as there not in use of people. Buying a light house is similar to buying a house.
Here in my DLO I put in a sighn in big letters to hook in the reader. I also put in a bit of pop in the back for more attention. I learnt how to exchange Nz dollars to pounds. I also learnt about light house storys.

ASB Get wise Visit

This week Jayden from ASB Get wise visited our Class. We learnt how to spend money wisely and how to save our money for more things that we need rather then what we want. We started of by getting into teams from 1 to 5. The goal of the game is to not go over the budget. As he handed us fake money we started to plan what we are going to buy and what to not buy. I think the best thing that we decided as a group was to buy insurance just because we had 100 left over and because insurance payed of our hospital fees.

Matariki New Year

This week we have been learning about Matariki New Year. As year 7 & 8 we worked collaborative with LS1 year 5,6 and 4. In my group we have two year 6 and three year 7/8's. We all expressed our Matariki spirit and enjoyed the time we had together as a group. This was very fun and interesting topic to work on.
In this DLO We all used our researching skills to  find as much information as we could. We then put in some photos that relate to our topic.

Matariki Celebration

This week we have been learning about Matariki. During our process through creating our presentation we all worked collaboratively and as a group we had lots of fun. As our guide we used our researching Skills and we also watched videos that helped get a more understanding meaning to our Presentation. I think as a class Ls1 and Ls2 really bought the Matariki spirit to the game.  I worked with Magenta,Joel and Sandra. We made D.L.O's about Matariki and how we collaborated with LS1. We made a Slide presentation and a Google drawing. The Google Draw was for the Poster and the Slide presentation was for what Matariki is about. We made eleven Slides for the Slide presentation. We did some research on What Matariki is about. We found out the Matariki was about the 7 sisters. I wrote down facts about the Matariki stars and what they mean.

Rippa Rugby was really fun as our teams was having fun and we dident blame each other.
