Calendar Art with Mrs Manuyag!

Today, Room 8 were lucky to have a session in the Art Room with Mrs Manuyag!  We were working on calendar art, which will be sold to help fundraise for our school.  Mrs Manuyag introduced us to Zentangles.  It was a really fun experience and they came out looking fantastic!  We can't wait to place our orders!

Here are some photos from the experience!

TPS at OMGTech!

On Saturday the 18th of October, Miss Kyla joined three students from Room 8 to attend the first ever OMGTech event in Auckland City!  The day was filled with great activities ranging from:  disc drive destruction, marshmallow catapults, 3D Printing, Coding and more!  We even got to meet the Mayor of Auckland - Len Brown!  It was such an amazing experience and we hope that this programme continues for other young people in New Zealand.

Technology Challenge #1

This term, our Inquiry is based around technology.  We are especially investigating how the way we think, affects the outcome and are trying to develop our problem solving skills.  Today we had to create a newspaper tower that could balance a whiteboard pen for 10 seconds, without anyone holding the tower up.  Here are some photos from the experience!
