M&M Research

Last week in our groups the task was to first research and then write down about M&Ms, one thing that we wrote about was the highlighted history of M&Ms. Along the way my group (Ofa, Avalon, Carl, Joshua W and I) learnt about what the acronym for M&M was, what happened to one of the founders, where the founders received their inspiration from and why they removed the red M&Ms for a decade. Along with adding in videos Ofa and I also made GIFs, mine being the one on the second slide and Ofa's the one on the sixth.

CARE Award - Respect | Photo Collage

This task is one of five that I need to do for a CARE award, for it I needed to create a collage out of photos taken this far throughout the year for every subject or activity that happens regularly in school. In this DLO I added Panmure Bridge School's whakatauki, motto, logo and focus (Learn, Create, Share). I used the photos from our shared folder.

[Alex] CARE Award - Respect | Make Dinner For Your Family

This task is one of five that I need to do for a CARE award, for it I needed to make dinner for my family. At first I needed to peel carrots which took around 10 minutes, then I peeled potatoes which took around 10 minutes too, after that I cut both into smaller pieces and placed them into the pot. I then waited for a while so that the vegetables could cook until soft.

CARE Award - Respect | Interview A Person In Uniform

This task is one of five that I need to do for a CARE award, for it I needed to interview someone in uniform. The example for the task was a policeman/woman but since I didn't know where I could find one of them I interviewed the security guard in the Panmure library, I also needed to be careful with my questions because I didn't want to be rude and ask personal questions.

Tech Reflection: Digitech

This is an example of an animated story that a recreated in scratch. The components used to recreate this story include:
Spites (As characters), backdrops (To be used as backgrounds) and dialogue (For conversations between characters).
The codes that I used to recreate the story include:
Events script to start the story, looks script to enable talking between sprites, control script for pauses between events and the looks script for backgrounds.

This week in DigiTech the year 7's were linking and finishing off our leftover work, we also needed to add a few things to our Scratch projects.
