Mystery Skype


On Wednesday of Week 10 we played Mystery Skype through School Kits.  A city school got matched up with a country school and we had to figure out where they were by only asking yes or no questions.

We used google maps, atlases and many other things to help us figure out where they were! Our partner school were in Moana on the West Coast of the South Island.

We asked questions like - Are you in the South Island? Are you on the West Coast? Are you near Christchurch?

We managed to figure out where they were ONE question before they figured out where we were!!!

It was so much fun and great for our thinking skills!!!!

Hour of code

In our red room time we had a look at the website hour of code.  

It is an introduction to coding... Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites.  It is an important skill that we need to learn as it is something that will be very common in of the jobs we have in the future... 


Have a look at some photos of us challenging our brain!!

Growth Mindset

For our inquiry learning we have been talking about things that help us learn.

We looked at the Learning Pit and Growth Mindset, which is a scientific theory that even though we may not be good at something YET, we can get better and the more we practise the more likely we are to succeed!

Comment below sharing what you are not so good at YET and how you are going to get better at it!!
