We are the oldest, so have lots of responsibilities...patrols, librarians, class leaders, monitors, technicians, band....it's so stressful being us!! Keep checking out our blog. We'll have videos, photos and examples of our work. We guarantee this blog will be out of this world.........

This week we have been doing Technology Week in the kowhai team (the seniors). Now I will tell you all about it.
Rotation 1- Otalani's class-Snail traps
On Monday I was making snail traps with Otalani. The only things we were allowed to use to make the snail trap were:
1 small plastic cup
and 1 roll of sellotape that's all ! My group was Me , Julius,Joe and Susanna. Our snail trap did NOT work!It was really fun making it my group had a lot of laughs along the way.
Rotation 2-Margaret's class-Puff mobiles
On Tuesday we were in Room 15 our only material we had were:
4 Cheerios (the breakfast cereal)
1 piece of paper
and 50cm tape
That's all we had to make a car that we could blow along with our breath! It was really fun making it and mine was in the top 7!
Rotation 3-Emily's class-Bird feeders
On Wednesday we were making bird feeders our materials:
20 sheets of newspaper
1roll of sellotape
1 sheet of A4 plastic
2 sheets A4 paper
and 4 straws
These bird feeders had to be able to hold 10ml of water and ours did NOT work!
Last one, rotation 4-Nikki's class-Bridges
In this class we had to make a bridge that would hold 4 KG!
10 Popsicle sticks
1 sheet of cardboard
1 roll of sellotape
and 1 m string
Ours did hold 4kg, it much more, it held 11.5kg!!!
This Technology rotation has been AWESOME but I'm not going to have another one at this school.
But I hope this information makes you want to have your own Technology Week.
