This Week's PB4L Certificate Recipients

Our focus for PB4L last week was Be Respectful: Use kind and thoughtful words. Elliot was our recipient for the certificate for always doing these things. Well done Elliot.

Emma ran a marathon

Our friend Emma ran a marathon on Sunday. After all the excitement of the gala and athletics day you'd think she would want a sleep-in on Sunday, but not our girl Emma.

Well done Em, so cool.

Chapter Chat - "The Wild Robot" and our Tweets

Room 14 have had a full-on start to Term 4 with Athletics Trials, Electives, Production Practice and all of our normal learning in class.

We've got stuck into the Term 4 Chapter Chat novel, 'The Wild Robot' by Peter Brown. Chapter Chat is a New Zealand wide initiative where many classes around New Zealand read the same novel and work on tasks and questions based on the text throughout the Term. Each Friday they get on Twitter to share their learning with one another.

Take a look at some of our tasks that managed to get up on Twitter yesterday - great start team.

OMG Tech - Scratch

What a start to the Term! We've been so busy and yesterday was no exception.

Our class was lucky enough to be selected from the Pukeko team to work with a group of people from OMG Tech. Zoe and her team helped us to create a maze game using an online platform called Scratch.

We used a coding language called 'Blockly' to move our characters and give them actions to do. This made rules for the game. We are really keen to get stuck into some more coding and programming during Term 4 on this platform. It was a great introduction and heaps of fun!
