Inquiry: Talk With Michal

Yesterday, we were visited by a lady named Michal. She is the owner of a small business by the name of Foodprint. Foodprint is a business that allows people to purchase food that would've been thrown away at a much cheaper price. You simply download the app, look through the foods, and pick it up. Michal visited us to talk about her business, and how businesses start as this is our Inquiry topic for term 4, Economics and Enterprise. Foodprint has been a business for 6 months, although it has been an idea for 2 years. Michal has for a long time thought about how much food is wasted, and this problem gave her the idea. Did you know that 20 million loaves of bread is wasted in NZ a year! I would recommend that you consider Foodprint as it is literally free money for the same fresh food you can get in a shop! Around 250 cafes supply Foodprint with the food they sell, so you can get a large variety of the foods you like to eat.

Helping Room 6 And 7 | Manaiakalani Film Festival

Yesterday room 6 and 7 came up to Learning Space 2. We got into the pairs we were in yesterday for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Although today Nevaeh was not at school so I filled in for him and joined with his partner. With Junior we created a Google Drawing that showed a picture of him, along with a sentence they wrote, a title and our names. I let Junior pick the colours of both the background

Manaiakalani Film Festival

Yesterday, Panmure Bridge School along with other schools in Manaiakalani went to Sylvia Park HOYTS Cinema to attend the 12th Manaiakalani Film Festival. Learning Space 2 would each take up the role of taking care of another student from room 6 or 7, although there weren't enough students for everyone so I helped take care of Khit with Aung Naing. We went to Sylvia Park by bus and walked in a line from the car park to the cinema. From there we waited for our cue to go into the theatre. We then sat our room 6 or 7 partners down on their seats and walked up to the top row in the theatre. The Manaiakalani Film festival was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed watching the movies. (Especially in the Lazy Boy recliners) My favourite movie throughout the whole film festival was Learning Space 1's 3 part How To films. My favourite out of the 3 was the How To Hold A Netbook film. If you would like to watch the film then click Here.

KiwiSport: Tennis | Session 2

Today we had the next session of tennis for Kiwi Sport. In today's lesson we focused completely on learning how to volley. A volley in tennis is where you hit the ball before it hits the ground. We learnt how to volley by throwing the ball to our partner and doing rally's where we would count how many volleys we could do with our partner. Unfortunately no photos were taken of me or my partner so instead I have grabbed a photo of professional tennis player Roger Federer doing a volley.

Maths: Market Game

Today we were given a maths challenge. It involved a game about Market Day that we would play with a friend and see who ended up with more money at the end. The gist of the game is roll a numbered dice and move that many steps. If you land on a sale, you roll a dice with 2 J's (Juggling ball), 2 H's (Hacky sacks), and 2 B's (Bungy balls). Which ever letter you land on will be what you sell. Although if you end up landing on Market Option, it will give you a deal that you can give the customer that you could do or turn down. For this game I worked with Aung Naing, and we had a lot of fun playing the game, and tallying up how much money we made and lost. We hope we can play another game like this again.

Provocation: Should We Ban Fireworks

Today we were given another Guy Fawkes related challenge. For this challenge we got into groups and would create a DLO that would show 3 sides to the banning fireworks provocation. We should ban them, we shouldn't ban them, and our personal opinion. For this activity I worked with Julian and Jonathan, and we had a lot of fun. It was an interesting topic, but one we enjoyed.

Guy Fawkes | Safety Rules Presentation

Today Learning Space 2 got into groups and each created a presentation that gave 5 rules about safety when it came to fireworks as it is Guy Fawkes. For this activity I worked with Alex and Aung Naing and we had a lot of fun creating this presentation. Once we had completed our presentations we would go to another class and present our rules to them. We chose to present our slideshow to room 1.
