For our Topic we were learning about sinking and floating. We all had to write in our books what will float and what will sink. After that we had a test what was going to happen. We all gathered around and started to put the equipment inside the din to see what was going to happen. Then we all got our answers and went back to our book and wrote it down.

My thoughts about net book...

Net book...

You can also search the web on your net book. And its very useful to use. Like when your doing a presentation at school you can go on your Net book and go search for what ever you are searching for, instead of going to other people class room and asking ‘can I use your computer’ and waiting for your turn. That’s why t think its really awesome to have your own net book.

Some people think that the Net book is not a great tool for learning, but for me it’s a great way of learning. Its a very different way of learning, but its fun.

We get to do our work on line instead of writing all day. Plus we get to post our own writing on our own blogs, which every one can read and post nice comments about what you wrote about.

Its very awesome because you can go home and do your home work on Google docs, or on your computer. Instead of turning to school and telling your teacher you lost your book. That’s why its cool to have a net book, because you can write your work on it, and it will be saved.

If you don’t have a computer at home you can go to the library, staying after school or come early in the morning and do your home work. Plus your teacher can see what you have done on your Google docs, by going on her own computer.

Traditionally, depending on the visibility of Matariki, the coming season's crop was thought to be determined. The brighter the stars indicated the warmer the season would be and thus a more productive crop. It was also seen as an important time for family to gather and reflect on the past and the future.
