Kiwi Sports - Badminton

This week for Badminton Kevin our badminton tutor taught us where and how to hold the racket when were going to do the backhand technique. First in order to do the backhand, your thumb has to face yourself and the rest of the fingers needs to be around the racket's handle and that's how you hold a racket if you are going to do a backhand grip.To play a rally we had to find a partner and I decided to go with Miki. We were told that one person needs to do a forehand and the other needs to do the backhand. Me and Miki were able to hit the shuddle 61 times!

Food Tech

Today at tech we made chicken goujons. To make chicken goujons you will need to have boneless chicken, flour, 1-2 eggs, parsley, some thing to add more flavor to it and chicken crumbs. First you need to dice your chicken and parsley. Then crack one or two eggs for your egg wash. With a separate bowl you add 4 table spoons of flour. With another bowl you add chicken crumbs, parsley and flavor. Once you have done these steps you turn on your stove then add oil to your pan. Once that's done you can coat you chicken with flour, then eggs and your chicken crumbs. Finally you put them in the pan to cook.

How Children Learn at School

How Children Learn at School

Do you wonder why kids are good at learning? They are good at learning because they watch people, they copy people, they observe other people because kids are eager to learn. They also want to follow their inspiration.

Children help their learning by observing people. Kids explore different and new things and they research things that they are unsure of.

Children talk to learn new things and find some new friends to get help from. Kids practice things to remember importants things.

Kids take risks to learn different things. They are also curious to figure out examples of things that they eager to learn about.

Kids are very good at learning they can do all sorts of things that people would not expect. They get help, they take risks, they observe information from what they are learning from and the take ideas and make them even bigger.

On Monday we wrote an explanation text about how children learn at school. We used rocket ship to write our explanation. After we finished our explanation we used DRAFT to fix our work. We also got feedback from different groups.

Last week we used screencastify to record our learning.

To start recording we had to download screencastify. Then we set up the app and we were ready to record.  before we started recording we had to write a script about what we were going to talk about. This was very help so we would not have to flip from tab to tab.
