Anthony's Chrome book Reflection

1. How has having a Netbook connected to the internet helped your learning this year?

Connecting to the internet on my chrome book is a big help because I was struggling in my math and I needed a way to get back on track so I typed in on google easy ways to learn math and it took me to this website that showed me new strategies in simple math questions.  

2. Can you tell us about something you have discovered and learnt by yourself this year (with help of the internet)?

When the couch in our class room ripped me and my friend Carlos had to mend it with thread and a needle. But the only thing was that I couldn't sow, so I looked on youtube on how to sow and it came up with a lady giving me a sowing lesson and that was really helpful.

3. What special thing have you learnt from your teacher this year?

I learnt how to think outside the box in creative opportunities and to come up with different ideas to stand out and not to be a normal brown cow but to be a purple cow.

4. what significant thing have you learnt all by your self this year - maybe online?

I learnt how to use I movie on our I macs (I movie is an application that is already downloaded on any mac software). 

5. What have you learnt from you friend this year?

What I learnt from my friend was 3 new shortcuts that are really helpful on I macs. The 3 shortcuts are command Z (witch is undo), command C (witch is copy) and command V (witch is paste).

6. What thing have you learnt from people outside your class room?

I learnt how to play proper handball rules so now I can play handball with my friends.

7. How have you grown your key competencies through using digital tools this year?

I learnt how to import a video from a  memory card to I movie and to make a stop motion movie using I can animate (I can animate is an app for any apple or android device's. you can make stop motion videos and stuff like that).


Action world

On Friday the 6th of December the year 7's at Pt England school went to action world. Action world is place in Henderson Auckland were you can experience different activity's like Tight-rope, Jousting, Rock climbing, Trampoline, Crazy-ladder and Jungle swings. And the best part about it is that you land on safe inflatable air mats.

The most fun activity for me was everything!!! I liked everything because all of the stuff to do there gave me a rush of adrenalin. But the activity I didn't master was the crazy ladder because it kept tipping over and over so that was the I didn't master.

I recommend for you to go to Action world because it is a great place fr a party or just to have fun.

Future Aspirations

On Thursday the 14th of November the seniors of pt England school had some special people in to talk to us about how they had a dream and how it came true and if you have a dream chase it.
We had 4 speakers and they were all inspiring.

But the most inspiring person for me was Tristan Pang because he was only 12 years old and he was already going to university in maths and science and he was the most brainy person I have ever met.

My future Aspiration is to become a pro bmx rider and make it to the X games.

The day of the devil (narrative)

It was Thursday the 12th and 6 year old Jacob and his mum Lucy had moved into a new house. But little that they knew the house they had just moved into was possessed with demonic forces.

They had just got settled in and were fast asleep. Just then a spine chilling  breeze filled the air and Jacob woke up with a fright and couldn't get back to sleep. Suddenly a gust of blood curdling wind whipped the blankets of Jacob and a loud high pitch sound screamed in his face.

It’s Friday the 13th and Jacob had told his mum what happened to him last night but she told him it must of been a dream Jacob refused and said it really happened to him but still his mum didn't believe him.

Later that night Jacob had a plan to record the whole night on an old super 8 camera and prove to his mum that it was real. So in the corner of his room he had a video camera taping every second of the night.

As Jacob was lying there in his bed the door then blood started to drip down from the ceiling with grim. Jacob started to panic then whoosh Jacob was gone in a flash. And from that day Jacob and the tape were never to be seen again.
