This term for inquiry we are looking at how we can look after our planet by thinking about the ways we reduce, reuse, recycle at Panmure Bridge School. For this task we had to read two articles about New Zealand's rubbish. One thing I have learnt is that every year New Zealand throws away 3.6 millions tonnes of rubbish which is taken to landfills. I worked with Zahra and Mataio. We wrote down our own informed opinion about New Zealand's littering.

We had a great afternoon today connecting with Kororo School through blog commenting. Everyone enjoyed reading blog posts that showed a different learning journey to their own. What excited me was seeing so many of our learners using their smart searching school to explore Greymouth to strengthen the new connections they were making.
In this DLO I had to work out a strategy and figure out the problem to this. I have written the question, the clue and my strategy or my way of solving the problem. This helped us with our fractions, multiplication and division. This was a tricky problem to solve but I successfully figured it out.
Today we had our first lesson of dance. First we did a warm up. A warm up is when you prepare for a physical activity by exercising. It is important to warm up before exercising because if you don't you can be injured or badly hurt. If you do warm up it helps the blood flow and gets you more awake and flexible for your physical activity. After doing a warm up we had to find a buddy and create our own warm up routine. I enjoyed practicing our warm up and making a warm up of our own. I think I need to practice on being more in sync with my partner Eric.
During the morning and middle block we did dance. For dance Mrs Anderson said we had to create our own warm up routine. My partner was Sky, we watched warm up videos to get some inspiration. Making up the moves was easy but doing the them was really tricky. Warming up and stretching before you have a sports event it can help you move a lot easier. But if you warm up and stretch to much you will lose some of your strength to do something. This was a very fun task to complete and cant wait till next week.
Javeylor and I created this DLO to show how our words can give things human qualities. This is called personification. In this task Javeylor and I worked together to give the days of the week personalities.

Today LS2 were asked to think of ways we could reduce the use of paper in our classroom. We used Padlet to record our initial thinking. This was a great platform to use as it meant we could learn with and from each other as we could see all suggestions made in real time. Having this resource at our fingertips meant we had taken the first step in reducing the amount of paper we use and lead to a rich discussion on the topic.

What a great morning we are having in LS2! Today our Manaiakalani schools are celebrating our cluster wide inquiry at Te Oro with presentations and performances. Not all of us were able to attend so the wonderful live stream enabled us all to be a part of the learning celebrations. We began by watching Glenbrae students present their inquiry. It was really interesting to see the learning other schools have been doing. When it was time for the PBS performance we all sat glued to our screens.

Sanujan created this wonderful animation to show one of the effects of throwing rubbish down our stormwater drains. A powerful message presented in a creative way. Great work Sanujan!

To show our understanding of the Kokako Bird we made an info-graphic about it. We also added images to show the appearance of the bird. Did you know that the Kokako bird prefers to leap then fly. I also didn't know that that it was a native bird to New Zealand.
Last week LS2 went to cam, we had an amazing time with the fun activities and the delicious food. This collage showcases some of the amazing things we did at camp. I added pictures of archery, camp high ropes, scavenger hunt, our falls trip, high ropes, and the pools. My favourite activity was high ropes because it challenged me.
