The Summer Learning Journey Video

The Summer Learning Journey for NEXT Foundation from Next Foundation on Vimeo.

Today we had a special assembly. For this assembly we had visitors from the NEXT Foundation and the people that program the Summer Learning Journey come to our school. We were first presented by Rachel from the Summer Learning Journey program. She told us how wonderful and successful the Summer Learning Journey was. Then we had Bill from the NEXT Foundation. He talked to us how the NEXT Foundation became a big company in New Zealand. We were then presented by the clip that I have put on top of the screen. Daniel was the main star in this clip. After this the NEXT Foundation gave us free lunch.

Google Programing

Today we played a game on google. To play this game we had to know how to program or code. This was an easy task for me because every Fridays we use to go to Digi tech wich helped our skills of programming and coding.

Tech Reflection

Every week, on a Friday morning the year sevens and eights go to Tamaki College for tech. So far this year, we have had three rotations. For the year 7 group B, our rotations were, Graphics, Digi Tech and Cooking. In food tech, we learnt to cook and we made some amazing things like Chocolate logs and Oreo milkshakes. In graphics we designed shapes and made a model of our teacher. In Digi Tech we learnt how to use scratch to code a animated story. And in food tech we learnt how to cook and bake different types of food.

Summer Learning Journey - Hazel Visit

On Friday we got a visit from Hazel that helps program the Summer Learning Journey. She told us if you participate in the Summer Learning Journey and come First, Second or third, we receive prizes at the start of the year. This was a great opportunity for us because it can help us with our learning while we are not at school. The prizes we will receive is Slime, fidget spinners, Lego and more. I look forward to doing the tasks.

Tech - Robotics

Last week Friday it was our last week of tech for the year. So for the last week of tech we were separated into groups to do activities. The three groups were Robotics, Social Studies and PE. I was put into the robotics group. For this activity we had to program a drone to move around obstacles that were set up for us. The first challenge was setting up the drone. This task was easy because you had to connect the numbers in order. We then programmed the drone to make it move in a square shape. The last task was to make the drone go under a table fly up and make it land on the table. This task was hard for our group but we were still able to complete the challenge.
