My amazing museum reflection

Yesterday we went to a building that hold and exhibit historical, scientific, artistic or cultural interests. The thing I found most interesting was the weird and wonderful. Because there were a lot of information about insects and other animals. They also had a cool computer that lets you scan tiles for a heap load of information.Something I learnt was that there were so many rocks with weird names and different types of volcano eruptions. Also that when a volcano erupts and a air plane is in the air, the ash can destroy the plane because its hot. I can apply all the information I know about volcanoes to my inquiry learning by researching about the biggest volcano eruption in the world.

Hangarau Technologies

On Fridays our class go to tamaki college to learn digital technologies. Hangarau is the maori word for technoloy. When we are in class, we have to use the kiore and the papa patuhi to log into the rorohiko. On the rorohiko we have to use the ipurangi to log into the pae tukutuku for digital technologies. Every week we access the maramataka to know what tasks we will do. Sometimes our teacher will send us messages on our imera. Sometimes our teacher will give us dojo points on her waea pukoro, or she might also use her waea pukoro to take photos of us working. At school and home some of us use pur rorohiko ponaho to do our work.
