Our Blog

We are a year 5/6 (9-10 year olds) class from Bairds Mainfreight Primary School in Auckland, NZ.

You can see some of our learning that took place in Room 12 in 2010 and 2011.

NB: I have moved to a new school now so this blog is no longer active. You are still welcome to comment and look at the great fun we had over the past two years.

Thank you for all the lovely comments :)

Google Doc Madness

We have been working with Google Docs for a couple of weeks now. They are cool because when you are on google docs you can chat to other people while you are working.

If you write something it saves really fast by itself so you dont lose your learning.

You can let people into your document.

You can add to it anywhere with internet we have been doing it at our parents work, at home, at the internet cafes in town, and at the library and out our Aunties house. Mrs TJ can see it on her phone too!

We have been sharing our doc with our friends in Australia. They asked us some questions and now we are making a new doc about stories from our cultures.

Group 1 and 2 are making a report about brains on their google doc.

Michelle drew a picture for her google doc and put it in.

  1. Hi Room 12
    I hope you are enjoying the warm days. When I was in London (Lee's Uncle) taught me how to use Google Sketchup, you can build houses and all sorts. I use Google Docs for lots of things like my staff meeting minutes, sharing documents with colleagues. Perhaps when you are wanting ideas from lots of people you could publish the link and we could contribute.
