For maths we have been focusing on the correct startgey to use for our maths equations. Savelina,Javeylor and I made a DLO and used screeencastfiy to show the stargey and how we did it. This was easy because we have done something similar like this before using screencastify.

Police dogs help the officers by smelling where there located or to smell drugs. What surprised me the most I didn't know that the German shepherd police dogs have 42 teeth.

Manaaiakalani Film Festvil

Yesterday was the 10th Manaaiakalani film festival anniversary at Sylvia Park Hoyts theater. The festival ten years ago with the film making from different schools.  And now got located to Sylvia Park Hoyts. Our whole school got to watch all the amazing movies from different schools in the Panmure cluster. I enjoyed many of the movies but one of my favorites were no more sugar by Tamaki Primary. It was all about don't eat lots of sugar and start eating healthy.

Badminton-Kiwi Sports

Today we had kiwi spots. Kiwi sports great with Kevin. We learnt how to use  the fourhand and back hand and stroke technique with the racket. my partner was Savelina we had lots of fun going back and forth. With the racket. I found doing the backhand technique challenging because it was hand to catch with the racket.
