Fruit blast

We have been learning about how a seed sprouts. I drew a picture of the inside of a orange to see its seeds.

Super infographic

 Before we launched our own blogs, we checked out some student blogs in Manaiakalani to see what kinds of information people share.  We noticed that they used photographs and videos as well as writing to share their learning.  We created an infographic to share what we discovered

Play Doh fractions!

We are learning about fractions this term.  To remember and think about what we already know, we made sausage roll and pizza with clay. We divided our shapes into fractions.  Each piece was the same size. Then, we made some pizza toppings for a whole pizza.  We shared them out on our pizza.  Each quarter of my pizza had the same number of toppings.

Where would I like to go?

This is one of the first Digital Learning Objects that we created and it was quite tricky.  I chose somewhere in the world I would like to visit one day.  Then I found an image of it on Google images.  Next, I cut around a photograph of my head using Pixlr so I could put  myself in that place.  Maybe I will travel there in the future in real life.

NRL superstar

Sep 21, 2015 10:05:04 AM.jpg

Talofa lava, my name is Peter and I am a year 5 student at Ruapotaka School. I am 9 years old and I am in Room 10. My favourite subjects are maths and writing.

My favourite place in New Zealand is Ruatoria near Gisborne.  I love ice-skating in Ruatoria. They have these old houses called homesteads there. Homesteads mean that someone lived in a house for a very long time.

My favourite sports are rugby and rugby league. My favourite rugby league player is Shaun Johnson. When I grow up I want to be an NRL superstar player.
I want to be in The Warriors and play like Shaun Johnson.

My favourite food is butter chicken with rice. I love going to the pools in Mangere. I like playing the xbox at my Nan’s house.

Please enjoy my blog.
