How children learn at school

How do you think children learn at school? Maybe they learn by talking to each other and by listening  teacher or by other children's ideas. Sometimes each students always learn from their or someone else's mistake. 

Role models are a good example for children because they always need some to inspire them through their learning journey, people and kids copy of each other so they can learn more information from each other so they don't have look up websites.
Children listen to find out information then kids could copy and then they could research and find out more information. Then children can copy off them so they can learn new things.

children take risks to learn new skills and practice of of others then they do it over until they have Learnt it. Children take risks to find out other information.

How do you think children learn at school! I think children can explain there learning by listing and talking to each other, I think children learn by following role moles.

Yesterday we were sent of to think how do children so we got into partners, My partners are Tai and Harlem H read this if you want to know more on how children learn at school.

Year 8 Day at Tamaki College

Today the year 8s went to Tamaki college to see what a day in Year 9 looked like. The first activity was maths. It was a lot of fun. We played battle ships against Mr Jones, our teacher for maths. Luckily we won the battle ship game. The next thing we did was science. Our teacher's name was Mr Stoddard. We learnt about static electricity and physics. We did experiments to help us understand. First we made water bend by rubbing a plastic tube on a piece of material and running the taps slightly. When we put the rubber tube next to the water it looked like it was bending. After our yummy lunch we had English. Our teacher this time was Mr Stevenson. We were finding visual images connections with new vocabulary. Last but not least was PE. For PE our teacher was Mr Moyes. We played turbo touch. We had 3 teams, there was non-bands team, a red team and a yellow team. I was in the non-band team but I never found out the final score or which team had the most tries. I think it was the red team but it does not matter because we all had so much fun. A big thanks to Tamaki College for showing us their awesome school and a big thanks to the teachers that taught us in the time we were there. I am looking forward to being a Year 9 student there next year!

Lyndon's big wedgie

The harness got tighter by the second. It felt like the straps were trying to stop the blood flowing in my legs. The next thing I heard was the harness belt clipping on. My heart raced a little bit faster. I knew my adventure was about to begin.

I felt myself heading towards the sky, the wind passing over my skin while my feet waved goodbye to the earth below. I heard kids screaming and cheering while I hoped the giant wedgie the harness was giving me wouldn’t get any worse. It was too late, I was already at the top. I opened my eyes, everything looked ant size!

I began my journey back down. The wedgie loosening as my legs spread apart to give the ground a big old hug. As I unclipped the harness I could feel the blood once again rushing through my legs.

This is my camp recount story it is about well I cant tell you but read the story of what I was talking about (A) high ropes, (B) flying kiwi or (C) archery? See if you got it right by reading all the way to the bottom. I'm sure I felt and heard every thing that it says in the story.
