Lockdown Diary

During lockdown Room 22 have been putting together a personalised 'Lockdown Diary'. To enable them to complete this task the students were asked to complete a task a day over 10 days. Below is a copy of the work they were asked to complete... The presentation begins with the last task and works its way to the initial task...

Here is a copy of the 'Lockdown Diary the students used to motivate their creations.

If you find yourself at a loose end and you want to create your own 'Diary' then please use the above to become a creative genius...

PE on our newly laid court in Area 1 - Ultimate Netball 7 April 2021

 As a progression on from Ultimate Frisbee we moved into playing Ultimate Netball using dimpled balls. We used these balls as they are more forgiving for our students. Our focus was to have fun by doing our personal best and trying to work together as a team.

Genesis - Emirates Team NZ Experience 30 March 2021

 As part of our class visiting the Spark 5G Race Zone, our class also visited the Genesis experience where we were introduced to using Sphero Robots... 

We began by learning how to drive the bots...

We worked in pairs... practiced controlling our bot around our partner...

Than it was time to place the bots on a racing course to control our bot as if we were racing... 

We then raced against each other...

Finally we learnt a little coding to give our bot a set of instructions to carry out.

An absolutely fun and enjoyable experience....
