Mighty Bean Movie

This is our first go at making an animation. How do you think we did against the success criteria?
  • Keep the camera and background still
  • Use lots of photos
  • make small movements at a time
  • work together

What do you think we could improve next time?

Georgias Special Project

I read a book about dinosaurs. It was called I dig dinosaurs. I got an idea to make the dinosaur mobile. You need to get some paper and draw some dinosaurs. Then you cut them out. Then Ebony laminated them for me so they were strong. Then I hole punch them. Then I tied them on some old pencils with some string.

Sick, sick, sick!!!

This week lots of people have been away from our class because they are sick. Remember if you want to catch up with some learning at home check out our "All Stars wiki" in the 'Cloud Classroom' using the link on the side or below on the picture. Check it out!

Our first animation

"What went well with your animation"
"What would you change"
"How could you improve your animation next time"

I wonder why the moon has different patterns on it?

We read Rona and the Moon and wanted to find out why there were black bits on the moon. We knew that there were craters in the moon and we did an experiment to see how the black bits were made. We found out that the shadows came into the craters and made it dark because the outside of the crater blocked the sun from getting in.

The Duck Song

Today Ebony showed us this funny video about a duck. We wrote a story about it telling people to watch it because we liked it and can't stop singing it. Here it is...

What I enjoyed at DT.

Moon dough is my favourite thing at DT because I can mash it and crash it into any shape I want.

Once upon a time... by Georgia O.

Once upon a time there was an ugly Zombie. He liked to eat worms, slugs and lots of other stuff. But most of all he loved...PAPER. The sad thing was he was scared of people and he thought that they ate paper but they didn't they drawed on it. One day he wanted to be brave and go and get it. So he went and got a lot when they were asleep. And that is how the Zombie ate paper!
