Today the lucky Yr 7 & 8 extension students had the chance of attending Ormiston Junior college GEGNZ (Google Educator Group New Zealand) In the classrooms we got to present our topics and visit workshops. One group presented to kids about scratch and taught them how to create a game, then another group had to present about PENN and how it works. The first thing we did before anything else was go to the auditorium and start the day.

We all learnt more about coding, stop motion and how to film.

Noah's Speech Planner: Why should kids have homework!

Today I can tell that you want something exciting! Something incredible something Amazing, and what could be more amazing than Homework! do any of you enjoy homework? I know it’s something people dislike but that is just a part of life, do you ever feel lonely when your siblings are outside having fun while you are stuck inside finishing off homework, homework is important because kids go home after school and do barely anything, it is very good if kids do homework so they are not distracted from any games or social media for example Facebook, But hopefully none of you have a Facebook account.

Did you know that homework also helps people have better marks in their reports, it can also make whanau included in your child's work, and can regain knowledge. Homework can also be good for teachers because if the student is stuck on a question the teacher know’s what they need to work on. As a kid homework is just like vegetable’s it doesn’t taste so good but you have to eat it. Homework also gives valuable practice with what you've learned in class, repeating classroom concepts at home helps to cement in your mind the things you learned.

Guardians of the Galaxy Immersion Assembly Term 3

What a great start for term three, this term our whole topic is based on planet earth and beyond, the topic’s name is none other than the Guardians of the Galaxy. Would you like to know what the five teams have created in the holidays for there class focus. The reason why I liked this terms Immersion assembly is because it was much different than the other assembly’s.

Team 1 - Team 1’s focus was all about learning about the sun, the moon, outer space and how it works, they are also learning about how the earth keeps people alive. The team leader Miss Hockley came out and explained what they were doing and why she had giant glasses on.

Team 2 - Team 2’s topic focus was about how the sun and the moon change the earth. There movie was very interesting by how they sang and danced around, I really enjoyed there awesome costumes.

Team 3 - Team 3’s topic focus was about Time and seasons. In there movie they had trouble with time and how fast it went, they said they couldn’t set a time to make a meeting because of everything that was going on.

Team 4 - Team 4’s topic focus was all about exploring the universe by travelling to other places and seeing if it is safe for human lives, in the control room workers are smacking their keyboards to see if the astronaut was doing okay and how to move the rocket through space and set the destination.

Team 5 - Team 5’s topic focus is all about how tides change by the moon, also about what the moon is and the distance in space, One of the most important things that we are focusing on is the Gravitational pull.

The most informative movie was Team 1’s movie because they showed the most information about the planets and the stars and how hot the sun can be when people/astronauts go into space.

I think the most entertaining item would have to be team 5’s magnificent band, it was the most entertaining because all of the team 5 teachers were playing instruments and being silly, Mrs Judd however was lead singer and was very good at it.

The things I am looking forward in term 3 is learning about space and other planets, I also want to know more about people visiting other planets and seeing if there is another planet safe for humans.
