R25 National Spies

Kia ora,

We have been learning about what we can share and what we should keep to ourselves. So today we became investigators and check out a blogger. Here is what we found out about her.

It was interesting reading about other people and gathering information. We are happy to report we found nothing that should be private on her blog.

Kia ora buddy classes!

Kia ora readers…

…and a special welcome to our Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu buddies from Wesley Primary School and Foxton Beach School.

We are a team of year 3 and 4 learners from Rooms 25, 26, 21 and 18. 

Our school is full of responsible children. Being responsible is part of what we call the New Windsor Way. Our school is at the top of a hill so we have a beautiful view of a lot of Auckland, the Waitakere ranges and even the sea.

Our team is collaborative which means we work together a lot.

We are excited to share about our museum trip that we are going on soon with you.

We’d love to know more about your local areas and what is near to your schools.

Please leave us a comment if you have any other questions or if anything we have shared has helped you make a connection.

Ngā mihi nui,

Waenga Team.

Room 25 ready for an awesome Cybersmart lesson!

Creating New Docs

Kia ora readers,

Today in Room 26 we’ve been learning how to creating new files in our Google Drive.

First we double click on the right folder to go inside it…

Then we click ‘New’ and ‘Google Doc’…

Then we need to name it…

When we follow these steps it makes it easy for us and our teachers to find our work nice and quickly.

Do you have any other tips about making new files?




Is it a bird, is it a plane… no it’s a boat!

Mālō e lelei,

Over the last few weeks students in Rooms 7 and 26 have been working on creating animations using Google Slides. We’ve been learning lots of useful tips like the shortcut ctrl-d to duplicate and how to group shapes so that they move together.

Here are some animations by Aayat, Anthony, Rand and Alisha. Let us know what you like about them and what you think we can work on next…



Kia ora koutou,

Today Rooms 7 and 26 were practising their Google Drawing skills. To create these fish we had to use the shape tool, the fill bucket, group our shapes, resize and rotate them, change the background colour and then duplicate the fish (ctrl-d) to make a whole school of fish!

What do you think of Louie and Emilie’s fish? Maybe you could have a go too…


Kawa of Care

Kia ora koutou,

Last week Phil came into Rooms 16 and 25 to work with us on the Kawa of Care. We have to look after our devices so that we can keep using them for our learning.

Here are some posters that Room 25 made to help us remember the different ways we can look after our devices. Can you think of some other ways we can look after our Chromebooks?
