Spider Drone

Today we are going to video and write about our attempts to code and fly Allanah's Spider Drone. Here is where Allanah bought the Spider Drone in NZ. Here is where she bought the Mini Drone.

We are going to use the free Tickle App on the iPad to tell it what to do.

We will have to work together and help each other learn.

We are going to write about what we have done using EasyBlog.

Here is a video and some photos from today.

We use the iPad app to control what the Spider Drone did.

We are going to try Easyblog as a way of blogging. It is easy to type, upload photos and take video.

Here is the app on iTunes and here is the website to look at the blog posts that we are writing.

Because there won't be enough iPads for one each some people may need to write their writing on this Google Doc.

If you are stuck with what to write about then this prompt may help.

If you held the world in the palm of your hands what would you do?

Little Bird Tales

Last term we trialled Storybird where we chose someone else's drawings and wrote about them. One of the limitations of that as that we couldn't pick things that we wanted to write about. This term we will try Little Bird Tales where we can upload our own photos, draw and record ourselves talking.

The Clifton Terrace School Code is  jE2J

Here is Allanah's example to show you what it can do. cover image

Here are some World Cup Rugby Images if you want to write about it.

Ben and Zach and the Tapawera Fair

Tapawera Show

On the day of the Tapawera show me, Ethan and Zach rushed to the show ground.

On Saturday me (Zach) and my friend Ethan were on the job early washing the calves ready for the showing the Red Devan boy and Friesian girl. All of my classes were between 9:40 and 10:00 am. The last class was at 2:45 instead of 2:30 because they were late.

I came first or second in all of the classes. I got the champion with ribbons and some cups. It was a awesome day.

Our Book is now on iTunes

Over the last few weeks we have been planning and writing a combined book in iTunes. Allanah has put all the stories together in to one Boys' Writing book and put it in iTunes so it can be downloaded from anywhere in the world- apart from China!!!
