Hi welcome to our News Report about MakerSpace.
Hi my name is Nicole and my name is Lucia! In week 6 our classes got a chance to go to the MakerSpace with Paula in Rm 2. Everyone was so so excited!!!! Rm 17 boys and Rm 18 girls went in the second block. Rm 17 girls and 18 boys went in the last block. While they were there Hayley was doing some testing and then Mrs K showed as a maths mania and how ever got the most ways of doing it they get to have a golden cube and my group got one way and then it was hard for us to get another one done unfortunately we didn’t get the golden cube were super sad but we still did amazing
When we went there it was so so amazing and wicked!!! we had to listen for a bit and we learned this thing called STEAM it means S= Science T= Technological E= Engineering A= Art M= Mathematics. Then we got to pick what we wanted. There were three things that we could do. There were 1. Making Lego robotics. 2. Steam bins. 3. Art. They were all so good so we both picked art because we love it and we are creative.
We got to pick out of some drawings that 5 year olds did in Rm 5. We both picked a cute-looking turtle. It was really cute!!! then we got our I-pads and went on sketchbook and took a photo of the cute looking turtle. Next we had to get another layer on it and then we got to colour it in and it was like invisable. Then we looked over at the steam bin where Rylee and Sophie where trying to get the highs tower and in Rm 18 and 17 Vinnie and Taine they were doing the marball run. Lucca and Chevy they were doing lego robotics and it looked really amazing. Next time when we go there again we will be improving some stuff that we did last time!!! BYE!!!!!!!!!!!! By Nicole / Lucia

Hi this is Aimee and Neeve reporting for week 4 term 1 2017.
This week we have been doing kids can ride , to learn how to be extra safe on our bikes.When we started we first learnt the basic road rules and how to know if our helmets/bikes are safe.
The next day we had to do a proper bike and helmet cheek before we were able to go on the field.We have been learning our main hand signals and left and right hand turns.
On Wednesday we went out onto the field to learn our curb ride out.The curb ride out is when you ride from the footpath to the road , you need to cheek for no cars then you can safely ride onto the side of the curb.
The big days were Thursday and Friday when we went out onto the riding on the road.We had to do our curb ride out then we went riding out around Papamoa.
You may have seen kids in yellow vests bikeing around.Here are some pictures of us and some awesome people that learnt how to ride a bike.
