Josh likes playing cricket and versus lots of
hard teams. He’s 11 years old and a Year 6. He plays for Boys High
A.K.A Old Boys.
When he gets nervous he flicks himself with his rubber band that he keeps on his wrist .
His cricket bat is a Puma brand . So is his
red cricket ball. He and his Dad practise everyday. That’s how he
gets player of the day so often. He also has a secret power to
control the ball when he’s bowling. Sometimes he organises a game
at school in the breaks.
His current school is Glenview Primary, but he
wants to go to Hillcrest School because his friends next door go there
and because there’s nice teachers, not like Ms Kai.
He likes spaghetti bolognese and spicy noodles. People think that’s disgusting.

Wow! We got featured on a website.
is a magazine and website that lets teachers learn more about how to
use ICT and technology in their classrooms. They featured us on
their webpage with two other class blogs, Moturoa Blog in Nelson and Livewires in Puahue. Awesome!

On the last day of term we had a cake to celebrate our forty thousandth visitor. The cake was in the shape of a google map pin.
Room Niners – can someone write up a story to go with this
please. Email it to me or write it on the wiki and I’ll cut and
paste it here. Thanks.
Hope you’re all enjoying your holidays!

Whichever blogging platform you decide to use, Windows Live Writer can be used to publish to it.
Installing is easy enough, just go to Windows Live
and download the latest version. Make sure you only select Live
Writer for download, unless you want the other Live programs
offered. When installing uncheck the boxes that ask if you want to
install the Microsoft toolbar or reset your homepage (of course this is
up to you).
Once installed Live Writer offers a familiar interface for users,
this was important in my selection of it as the blogging tool for
children in class. Menus and icons are mostly self-explanatory, but if
you’re not sure- hover over the item and a tooltip will identify it for
you. A sidebar contains other functions you will need, like
insert, plugins, draft posts and settings.
To set up your blog go to Tools>>Accounts…
.>>Add…>>Other Blog Service…and enter your blog details,
user name and password. Pick “remember my password” so you don’t have to
enter it every time.
To use Live Writer at school you will need to add the proxy details here. Once you’ve done all this you’re ready to post!
New >> New Post >> . . . add a title and away you go

We showed this movie in assembly yesterday. The spoken parts were recorded in Audacity, some video was converted with zamzar, screen capture was by camstudio. Final editing was done in Windows Movie Maker.
We made a movie to show people our blog and to let everyone see the dancing video.
