My Netbook Reflections

My name is Anthony and I am a year 5 student at Glenbrae School. My Teachers name is Mr D. Nath. This year was an exciting year for me because I started using my chromebook as a tool in the classroom. I was really fascinated by the thought of doing so many cool things on my chromebook but, it took me some time to really start using it effectively. It was an awesome experience.

I have learnt Cyber safety, Accessing the class site, Blogging, keyboard shortcuts,  using google applications like google presentations, creating new folders and documents, using tools, taking screen shots, using Sumo paint.

I have learnt about how to use sunshine online and studyladder to expand my knowledge. I have learnt how to change my password, get on study ladder and sunshine online and how to get onto blogger and blog my work. I have learnt that I am able to access my google drive wherever there is an internet connection. I have helped my friends in class by giving them different strategies on how to access different sites on the internet and how to use the different apps in the google drive.

Through using the key competencies i was able to take hold of my own learning and think independently while using the chromebooks. If I ever got stuck on a question, I didn’t have to ask the teacher for the answer but instead, I went straight onto the google search engine and look for the answer myself.

Stretching our muscles help to keep them flexible.We can eat healthy food like eggs,meat,fish and cheese to keep our muscles strong and healthy.

Story Review

This story is about an experiment some children did at a school. In Winter, the children had hot food for lunch by heating their food in the pie warmer. Alisha did not have any food to put in the pie warmer, so her teacher wrapped her chocolate chip biscuit in a foil and put it in the pie warmer.
The characters in the story are mum, dad, children, Mr Swann and Alisha. This story takes place at the school in the countryside where children live on farms.
I liked the story because I like chocolate chip biscuits. I also like the way people live on a farm. My Nana and Grandpa live on a farm in Tonga.

Room 9’s Trip to the Stardome

On Thursday, the 9th of May, we  traveled to the Stardome by bus. When we got there, the Stardome Educator came and took us inside the Stardome.

When we were inside,we saw a movie on outer space. The movie was very interesting because it showed us different things about the planets in outer space.  

Next, we went into the classroom and the Educator talked to us about the Sun, the Earth and the Moon. I learnt a lot about these planets.

Finally it was time to come back to school. We got onto the bus and came back to school.
