2016 LS2 Collage

For this collage, I have collaborated with Zahra and Nazella to create this Reflection.This reflection is based around LS2's 2016 learning journey. This collage lets you see through our eyes what we have been up to this year. There are images of us collaborating working hard and some of our most favorite times at school.

This week LS2 was working with Ms. Kirkpatrick learning about movies. I thought this was a fun task because of all the things that we learnt. I think all the camera shots and actor parts will become useful in the future. I was really interested as to how much effort was put into the movie labyrinth and how carefully they thought about everything. Ms.Kirkpatrick chose the movie Labyrinth because sadly early this year David Bowie past away.

Rockets at TC - Day 2

Today was our second time at Tamaki college learning and experimenting with rockets. Today we started off by completing our paper rockets from last week. Mr. Dunn taught us how to attach on our string to the rocket. In the middle of the string, there was a paper sellotaped so that this acts like a parachute when the top of the rocket blows off and flies through the air. Once everybody completed their rocket construction, we went out to the field to launch them. Each group had their chance to make their rocket fly. During the rocket experiment, some landed a centimeter away from the launcher, while some went all the way to the carpark of Tamaki College. During all the launchers, we were focusing on the variables and why they some flew the way they did. I think that my group's (Sajiha, Nazella and me) rocket went the furtherest, that we couldn't even see it anymore. I think this is because we followed the instructions really clearly and made sure everything was the way it was meant to be. Overall everyone in LS2 had a great day and a huge thank you to Mr. Dunn, Miss. Ferguson! Because they spent their time with us and without them this wouldn't be possible without them. They put in so much effort to make this happen. And again, thank you so much.

Tahuna Torea Reflection

This is a Prezi I collaborated on with Nazella and Zahra. This is only one of the three ways we chose to share our visit. This is a reflection about the things we found out and learnt One is a timeline about the things that we did and one is about our experience and actual images that were taken on the trip.

Storyboard That - Tahuna Torea

This is my Storyboard That, which I have created with Zahra, Nazella. We had to create a step by step Storyboard which explained what happened that day. We had much fun and had a great time. This is one of three ways we chose to present our visit. This one is a timeline of the things we did and we tried our best to make it look like the real thing.

Multi-modal Reading

This week since our class is going to Tohuna Torea our reading focus has been on Godwits and multi-modal . Our Reading group is the R group. In our group, we  have Paige, Jasmine, Manu, Sylis,  Eric. Our first task was to complete our question matrix. We completed this task so that next time when we do our research we know what information we are looking for. This was also interesting to know what other people were finding our and we learnt a lot from each other. After we completed our question matrix we relied on our prior knowledge. We wrote about our prior knowledge about the travel transportations we use now, 30 years ago and 100 years ago. We wrote down on our computers the problems that come with all these types of transportation. Since we completed our prior knowledge we got to reciprocal read with our group. We took turns and read a paragraph each. I enjoyed today's session and I think we collaborated really well.
