Tagexdo Respect

Today we looked at the R in STRIVE.  R being for respect.  We wrote our own definitions and then considered respect as a verb.  From there we brainstormed words that demonstrated respect.
We made a Tagexdo of these words

Mihi's Foghorn

The school journal that Brayden and Titan have been reading is about Mihi's father being so loud when he watches her play rugby.  He was a foghorn.

Brayden and Titan have draw dad as a foghorn with the speech bubble showing what Dad said that made Mihi play poorly and made her so embarrassed.

Attempting Green Screening

Today we had our first attempt at green screening.  The presentation and videoing were not overly important today as you can tell from the films.  
The purpose was to work out how to put ourselves in-front of a back-drop.  

Have you green-screened before?  If so how did you use it?

What expectations do you have of your leaders?

What do you dislike most about school and why?

Today we did some writing on a topic that should have been relatively easy for the majority of us.  I know that I had no problem brainstorming my ideas (this surprised many - even teachers have things that they dislike about school!)

Below are some of the more interesting sentences that were written

Ayden wrote;
School is like listening to a story with no punctuation for 6 hours.

Dalvyn wrote;
I hate wearing the school uniform but sadly everyone has to wear it.

Titan wrote;
I hate assembly.  You have to sit and wait and wait for a whole 30 minutes, that is pretty long!

Jacquarne wrote;
I don't like wearing a sun hat.  They fall off too much and they get lost.

We wonder what it is that you dislike most about school and why?

Rock Climbing

We had the biggest surprise when we arrived at school today.  Jeff and Kirsten from Rock Up were there with their rock climbing wall.  We had a great afternoon working in groups of three and having turns at climbing the four different walls.

Adam was so good at it he could could climb the walls blindfolded.

Alex, Dylan and Conscious

Emmanuel saw the challenge when he climbed the wall after Zamaya had started


Jayden, Tom and Josh

Jordan & Judah


Xia got right to the top on his last attempt!


Can't  wait for next year
