Fundraising for Auroa School

During the Holidays my family were rostered on to do the slink calf run to raise funds for our School. It was a great excuse to have a family day trip together and we were very fortunate the weather was lovely.

Using iMovie to Support Technology Unit

Wow! I decided I was going to teach myself how to use iMovie over the holiday break and check out what I created. I love the creativity. So awesome. A big thank you to Fonterra for donating the pallets for our class to experience our repurposing unit with amazing results!

How have you used iMovie to enhance your learning?

Room 6 Friendships Book

Last month Room 6 were working on a Friendships book. Each student produced their page in Pic Collage then they arranged them in Book Creator. In order to publish the book we then imported it into Explain Everything. Ashley has been very busy reading the voice over on each page.
Here is our final book.

Building our Repurposed Pallet Boxes

We had an amazing day today creating some awesome repurposed pallet boxes. Thank you very much to the wonderful parents that helped us make them. You were amazing:)

Thank you....Mr Kalin, Mr McGrory, Mr Symes, Mr Sturgeon, Mrs Holmes and Mr Van Endhoven and also Mr Ericsson and Mrs De Bique... you're wonderful!!!

We are now working in the iInvestigate part of our AKO technology inquiry unit with great success. We are developing our hands on skills with great enthusiasm and willingness to give new things ago which is wonderful. We have found out that what we had planned our box to be could in fact be used for many things like a shoe box, a wood box, a seat, to hold sports equipment and also a planter box. Versatile!

We will now move on into the iDevelop stage where we will use the Thinking hats to evaluate the outcome.

Here is a movie of the process we went through to make Repurposed Pallet Boxes.

Building Pallet Boxes and Sore Thumbs!

Here is a movie of Room 6 who have wonderful smiles, are enthusiastic and don't mind some hard work and a few sore thumbs!
