Matariki information

Bonjour bloggers

Today we have been learning all about Matariki. Our teacher gave as a listening test about Matariki we had to listen carefully for the answers we had questions in our sheet

The questions are:
When does Matariki appear in the sky?
What are two other names for Matariki?
What does the brightness of the stars mean for the temperature?
and How do people celebrate Matariki?

Here is a video of Adrian and Kanishka telling you the answers to the questions above and the answers are sentences:

this is the video for the answer above me and my partner

My First Animation

Kia Ora Bloggers

Today I have been learning about how to Animate things with the other classes.

We used a presentation to create what we are animating.

When we were in the presentation slide we click view and there were a lot of things came up we clicked at master to have the background there was lots of options but the right option was where we are when it pop up we clicked on the image button and this was my first animation anyway there was a teacher helping us her name was Ms. Fortes we clicked on the image what the teacher said and we clicked the x mark just at the black rectangle and there you'll find the x mark.

After we've done that we went to insert and clicked image the teacher said that search for ninja star we searched for that and the teacher said click the first one and when we have got that we made it smaller.

After we have finished putting the ninja star we clicked on the slide and clicked Ctrl+c and Ctrl+v and we had another slide and made 24 slides but some maybe has more and have more slides or some are less and have less slide and we had to move it around until it reaches the other side.

After we have done that we clicked on file and there were lots of options but the right one was Publish to the web we clicked on that and clicked on 3 seconds and made it to every second when we have done that there were two small little boxes and clicked on both of them and when we have done we clicked publish and when we have done that we copied the link and paste it but we changed 1000 to a different number and after that we pressed  enter when we have entered we clicked on the right triangle and it played fast.

Our Pest Tracker

Morena Bloggers

This week we have been experimenting about pests so we build a pest tracker if there are any pest in our school we used a cycle it was: Empathise, Define, Ideate, Hypothesise, Test, and Observe. We are doing this to help our Native Birds. We used materials to build our pest tracker here are the lists of materials that we needed:


  • Milk bottles 
  • Black cut plastic bag
  • lids of milk bottles x2
  • tin foil
  • sponge
  • tape
  • scissors
  • peanut butter crunchy and smooth
  • food colouring
  • paper 

Pests are killing our Native Birds if we don't get rid of the pests the pests would kill all of our Native birds and our Native birds would fly away from New Zealand and never come back because there are too many pests in New Zealand they don't want to be eaten.

If our Native birds become extinct we wouldn't hear our Native birds beautiful singing  and our Native birds would fly away and never come back cause there are too many pests eating them.

We are going to use Milk bottles  to track pests in our school if there any pests in our school. This are the lists of things that we need to track pests: Milk bottles, lids, peanut butter, food colouring, sponge, tape, scissors, paper, tin foil, and a black cut rubbish bin.
 I know you are wondering how the pest tracker works we add the food colouring into the sponge and when they step on the sponge they would leave foot marks.

I think this is not gonna work cause the wind might ruined our pest tracker and I also think that crunchy peanut butter would work cause it has more things on it.
When we had made it we put peanut butter on two lids we put food colouring on the sponge we went to the bush walk and left it their for two days yesterday we took our pest trackers to our class and we notice something in our pest tracker.

We noticed in our pest tracker lots of ants I think the ants are a group of ants and the ants have eggs inside our pest tracker and our pest tracker's peanut butter looks like a poo of a pest our pest tracker failed cause we put lots of straw and leaves on it that's why the pest can't get in and it was ruined next time we are going to do it again  we are not going to put lot's of straw and leaves on it so that  the pests could go in  and be a success.
