Health and Safety - Google Accounts

Student Logins - Personal Google Accounts

Student online learning at school is managed under our school domain.  Students are protected when using their designated school gmail account by our N4L filtering system. As per our school cybersafety agreement, this is the only account students are to use for their learning at school.
Should students abuse this account by using it for purposes other than learning, they will lose access to their account for a period of time (up to a week in the first instance) as a consequence.
It has come to our attention that a number of our students, including younger students, have created their own google accounts/logins as a way around this. Because these do not operate under the school’s domain, we are unable to monitor their online activity as we are able to do when the children are using their school login.
Please discuss with your child if they have an alternate account. It is our recommendation that any child with a personal account has an adult at home monitoring it.Students found logging in with alternate accounts at school are also in breach of the cybersafety agreement, and will also lose their login privileges as a consequence. We are being vigilant with this as our primary concern is for the safety of our students.

William - Why you should Brush your Teeth

You Should Brush Your Teeth

Owwwww my teeth hurt. Don’t you hate it when your teeth hurt well then you should brush your teeth. I think you should brush your teeth because if you don’t you will have bad breath, sore teeth and cavities, and it’s expensive.

Firstly, you should brush your teeth because if you don’t you will have bad breath and no one likes stinky breath. Do you want people to think your stinky? Probably not. If you have bad breath people will avoid you and won’t want to be your friend.

Another reason why, you should brush your teeth is it’s expensive to fix. If you don’t you will have to go to the dentist and if you are an adult it costs lots of money. Think if you don’t brush your teeth when you’re a child then you will get older and it will be very expensive replacing all of your teeth.

My last reason why, you should brush your teeth because if you don’t brush your teeth you will get cavities and then they will rot. After they rot they might turn black and die. It’s sore having dark black teeth and you will look weird. If you have black dead teeth then the dentist will come and abolish your feeble weak teeth.

In conclusion, I think you should brush your teeth because if you don’t you will have bad breath, your teeth will rot and then die and it’s expensive to fix your teeth so, if you like your teeth brush them.

You should brush your teeth Amy

I love those white clean teeth, I wish I’d have those teeth, don’t you? I think you should brush your teeth. Since if you don’t brush your teeth, your teeth will get rotten, fillings and decay, everybody hates smelly breath, that is what will happen to you if you don’t brush your teeth, and if you got rotten teeth it will be expensive to fix it.


The first reason why I think YOU should brush your teeth is because who would want their teeth to be rotten. It must be hurt when you have rotten teeth. Don’t brush your teeth isn’t a good idea, sometimes instead having rotten your teeth will get fillings and decay and you’ll have bad breath.


Secondly, eww, did I just smelled somebody’s breath, that person must haven’t brush it teeth I can tell it straight away. I’ll just step 1 more meter away from this person. Bad breath will definitely make people stepping away from you. I am sure you don’t want it.


Finally if you do have rotten teeth and bad breath, you’ll definitely want to fix it…. “ how much will it cost to fix my teeth?” “About 100,00 dollar.” OMG! To get my teeth fix it cost about 100,00 dollar. I should listen to my mum  when I was little, if I did I don’t need to fix my teeth now, mmmm. @_ @.

Do you want rotten teeth, fillings and decay and bad breath, if you don’t listen to your guardian and go brush your teeth without people require you to do it. BRUSH YOUR TEETH and abolish fillings and decay.

AMY!!!
Brush your teeth!
Ouch mum my teeth hurt well you should brush every day! Well that's true you have to brush our teeth! so you can get an amazing smile, so you don't get sore teeth and no bad breath.


Firstly if you want amazing teeth that requires brushing your teeth and if you don't then you will never get that perfect smile that you want. If you have gross black teeth then know no one will like your smile.If i had gross black i would not smile at all (^o^).so brush your teeth!


Also i hate sore teeth don't you? If you don't brush your teeth will get really sore. Sore teeth is never a good sing it can lead to rotten teeth getting filling and decay. So brush our teeth every day! I’m sure all of you don't want rotten teeth do you?


Plus if you don't brush your teeth then you’ll get bad breath yuck! imagine if you had bad breath and no one sat with you and called you bad breath! No  one likes bad breath so brush your teeth!

So in conclusion we need good teeth, so brush your teeth so you don't get rotten teeth and fillings so brush your teeth!

“Don’t you love pearly white teeth instead of black pearly teeth? Well I don’t” but do you ever think why your guardian wants you to brush your teeth. Well your in luck I have some reasons why. The reasons are if you are an adult going to the dentist it’s very expensive and painful, you can also have bad breath, and you could have very sore teeth.


My first reason is if you don’t brush your teeth and if you are an adult you’ll have to pay a lot of money just to go to the dentist. It’ll be very painful sometimes. If I were you I would brush your teeth and I would abolish bad teeth if i could do anything.


Secondly is if you don’t brush your teeth you will have bad breath and your friend would go bye bye. You could abolish your bad breath but you will require a mint and brushing.


Lastly, you have to brush your teeth because your teeth would get very sore. Your teeth would get sore because there’s germs and bacteria eating your tooth. They live inside your tooth you don’t want that to happen do you? Even myself I could cry like a baby. Your parents would have a hard time calming you down.


In conclusion, you have to brush your teeth because these things could happen to you, you have to pay a lot of money to go to the dentist, you will have bad breath, and your teeth will be sore. I hope the reign of bad teeth ends so come on everyone brush your teeth!!

You should brush your teeth

“Ow mum my teeth hurt well then you should have brushed your teeth” i think you should brush your teeth because you will get bad breath’ it will cost a lot of money and and it will hurt .

I think you should brush your teeth because you will have bad breath.when people walk past you they will think that you smell because of your bad breath just one little brush a day can make your breath smell nice
When you don't brush your teeth when you get older you will have bad teeth and you have to go to the dentist it will cost a lot of money and if you have bad teeth from the start it's going to cost a heap of money

When you have sore teeth it hurts a lot and if you don't get them fixed they are going to hurt and get infected

In conclusion i think that you should brush your teeth so you don't have bad breath sore teeth or you having to spend a lot of money so brush your teeth

BRUSH YOUR TEETH PEOPLE!!!! - Delightful Delilah! :-)

Persuasive writing - You Should Brush Your Teeth!!!


Don’t you love having a fresh nice smile? THEN BRUSH YOUR TEETH!!! You should brush your teeth. If you don’t brush your teeth, you will have BAD  Breath, your teeth will get rotten and it is expensive when you get older.


My first reason is, bad breath. You should brush your teeth so you don’t get bad breath. I’m sure everyone of you have smelt bad breath before,  I promise you that  if you haven’t it smells REALLY BAD! If people carry on living like that, they will have a stinky life.


secondly, your teeth will get rotten! The number of people who have rotten their teeth is SO HIGH!! When you wake up in the morning you want to look at nice white teeth not black teeth rotten yucky teeth. I would probably have nightmares if I saw  that. So brush your teeth!


My Third Reason Is, getting your teeth fixed is so expensive! Even the people in the dentist Clinic  could make more money than Katy Perry! There is too many people going to the dentist. Also if you don’t brush your teeth, you will have to spend CRAZY MONEY  just  to get them fixed or repaired.


In conclusion, you should brush your teeth because if you don’t you will have bad breath, your teeth will rot and getting your teeth is so expensive!!!  SO BRUSH - YOUR - TEETH!!!!

Thank you for reading my awesome story!!!

Ali m's why you should brush your teeth writing

“Ding! Can Ali Mohammed come to the office because he has a appointment with the dentist” Do you hate it when you have to go to the evil dentist? You know why you have to go to the dentist? It’s because you don’t brush your teeth every day! These are some reasons why you are going to the dentist and why you should brush your teeth your teeth will get rotten, your teeth will fall out, it’s expensive to go to the dentist(if you are an adult) and you will get a bad breath.


Firstly have you ever had a very sore feeling in your teeth when you are eating? That's because you don’t brush your teeth and your teeth are rotten.When your teeth are rotten your teeth usually are black and after a couple of weeks your teeth will fall out.You don’t want black teeth when you are taking a picture and smiling with black teeth do you?


Next your teeth will fall out when you don’t brush our teeth. That means when you are going to eat it will be pretty difficult.IF you continue not brushing your teeth when you are older you won’t have any teeth! So you have to get wooden teeth or fake teeth!


After that if you don’t brush your teeth you have to go to the dentist and it will cost a lot of money! You even might have to get some fillings that would cost even more money! It would cost a lot of money if you are an adult but not for kids, infact kids get to go to the dentist for free!


Finally you will get a very bad and stinky breath if you don’t brush your teeth.And you will not have anymore friends because your breath will scare your friends away! And you would probably scare your teacher too!

These are all the reasons why you should brush your teeth, because your teeth will get rotten , they will fall out , it would be too much money for an adult to go to the dentist and you would have bad breath.

Kaizen O Persuasive writing sample

 Do you like having a fresh smile? Well You Should Your Teeth! I require you to brush your teeth so you won’t get bad breath, so your teeth don't rot and it's a lot of money when you are older to get your teeth fix.

My first reason why you should brush your teeth is so you don’t get “BAD BREATH”! After you gorge a lot of breakfast your breath can get a bit smelly, and you don't want that now do you. So after breakfast before you go to school brush your teeth and you won't have bad breath many more.

Another reason you should brush your teeth is so your teeth won't rot. If you  brush your teeth you can abolish these rotten teeth and get nice teeth once again. Having bad breath is bad, but having rotten teeth is really bad so you should brush your teeth.

My last reason why you should brush your teeth is so you don't have to go and get them fixed. Do you want to spend a lot of money on getting your teeth fixed? Well you should brush your teeth so you don't have to get them whitten because they are rotting.

If you brush your teeth you can have a lovely gigantic smile. So I hope you brush your teeth everyday It's good to have nice teeth.

Why you should brush your teeth?
I wish I had your teeth? Do you with sometimes you had the perfect smile? Well I do that’s why I think you should brush your teeth because if you don’t you will get really really bad breath,you will have very sore teeth and your teeth will get rotten.

Firstly,why you should brush your teeth is because you will get really bad breath. If you have bad breath no one would be around you because you have so bad breath. You don’t want people smelling your horrible breath brush your teeth so you don’t have a bad breath.

Second of all you should brush your teeth because you will have very sore teeth. You won’t be able to eat because your teeth are so sore. If someone bumps your teeth you will be mad at them but it’s your fault. If you're at school and it hurts and it is not good.

Last of all you should brush your teeth because your teeth will get rotten. Do you really want people going “EWW your teeth are so gross” just because you don’t brush your teeth. When people take photos of you, you don’t look very good. Brush your teeth or if you don’t all this will happen to you.

In conclusion
If you don’t brush your teeth all of this I said will happen to you. Brush your teeth or you get bad breath,you get sore teeth and your teeth will get rotten. Make sure to brush your teeth every night and morning. BRUSH YOUR TEETH.

From Brodi

Brush your teeth

Bad teeth you can get blad when you a brush your teeth It is bad when it  has blood. You can get yellow teeth. You can get bad breath.


If you do not brush your teeth they can fall out and it is lots of money  to fix your teeth . It can be hard for you to eat.

If you do not get them done it will be bad. You will need to eat to eat soft food. You  will need to have salt water. You will need to go to the dentist to get fillings and more stuff.

It will be hard  to eat we you hard food. You will have to eat very soft food. And brush your teeth every day.  We should brush our teeth.

Josh - You Should Brush Your Teeth

Persuasive Speech - You Should Brush Your Teeth


Do you like that pearly smile in all these great photos? Well if you want it, brush your teeth. If you brush your teeth you will have nice breath, if you don’t brush your teeth when you’re young you’ll have to go to the dentist and it will be expensive and if you brush your teeth they won’t fall out and you won’t have cavities.

Firstly, you should brush your teeth because you won’t have bad breath. If you have bad breath some people might not want to play with you! Bad breath can also cause people always telling you to brush your teeth also known as judging and you don’t want anyone to judge you.

Another reason you should brush your teeth is, you will have to have fillings. Cavities and decay can cause your teeth to fall out and if your teeth are rotten and black like a plum the tooth fairy wouldn’t be pleased. If you get fillings it really hurts even though I haven’t experienced it, it will really hurt. Also if your teeth are rotten and they don’t fall out you’ll have to go to the dentist and get them pulled out

Finally, if you brush your teeth and take care of them when you’re younger you won’t have to pay lots at the dentist when you’re older. Money is very valuable so, if you don’t brush your teeth when you’re younger save some money to pay lots of money at the dentist. You’ll have to pay lots of money for the dentist appointment because it’s more hard work for an adult appointment than a kid's appointment.

In conclusion, brushing your teeth is a good thing to do and it will show some respect to some people that don’t like bad breath and bad looking teeth. So brush your teeth or you’ll parents will say to you. “GO BRUSH YOUR TEETH!!!”


Joshua
“Scub scub scub” Mmmmmmmm this toothpaste tastes delicious. Do you what to have the perfect smile? Well if you do, than you should brush your teeth because, you may have sore teeth, bad breath or dead teeth.

My first reason is about having sore teeth. Sometimes you shout to you mum this. MUM MY TEETH ARE SORE. And she says you should have brushed your teeth, and she right. If you brush your teeth than maybe they won’t hurt and you're doing the right thing. Here’s if you don’t brush your teeth you might have tada, and that is the white stuff that comes off your teeth and tongue.

Secondly, I am talking about bad breath. Do you ever want to get married. Well if you do you need to use toothpaste that is minty or your breath will still stink . So you should brush your teeth.

My last reason is about dead teeth. If you have dead teeth, then your teeth will will turn black and stay like that forever Also if they are dead then they may fall out, and that would just look ugly. It is expensive to go to the Dentist.

In conclusion, I think you should brush your teeth because, they will become dead, you will have bad breath, and you could have sore teeth.

Hey have you ever dreamed of having crystal white teeth?
Well these are my reasons why you should brush your teeth,
Your teeth will get a tartar build up,Your teeth will decay,and really
Expensive dental work will be needed.
Firstly, your teeth will get darker.This means your teeth are dying.
You could simply avoid this by brushing your teeth.This is  a
Possibility of a tartar build up. Tartar is something white belive me
It dosen’t make your teeth white At all .Tartar has lots of bacteria in it.

My Second Reason, is that if you decide not to brush your teeth. Your teeth may start rot, and go black and this is no joke. It hurts
A lot  even though I haven’t experienced. This is a stage when the
Bacteria starts to eat your teeth. This is your teeth decaying.

Finally, the only thing that can help you is. Painful dental work. This is really expensive, well not for kids under the age of thirteen.
If your teeth hurt a lot they will have to perform a very painful treatment. To start of a nurse will put something like gel but on
Your gum. This is the something that will make you fle nothing then
The nurse will give your gum an injection. This won’t hurt at all because of the gel and then the doctor will pull out your tooth.

These are my reasons why you should brush your teeth!! Enjoy crystal white teeth.                                            By Pawan Reddy,

Why you should brush your teeth

Mum, my teeth hurt! Do your teeth hurt constantly? If they do then you obviously don't  brush your teeth. You should brush your teeth because you're teeth rot and tartar builds up, your teeth and breath smell really really bad and it's really expensive when you're an adult.


Firstly, you should brush your teeth because you're teeth rot and tartar builds up. You will start to notice yellow and black bits in your teeth and it means that your teeth will die if you don’t brush them. Tartar will also start to build up in your  teeth and it will look very yucky. You wouldn’t want to resemble to someone with false teeth would you?


Secondly, you should brush your teeth because you're breath will smell like the garbage outside your house, that's right garbage if you don’t brush your teeth your breath will smell like garbage. Imagine walking around town smelling weird. Would want to smell like a freak? Well most people don’t and I definitely don't.


Another reason, why you should brush your teeth is because it is very expensive to get your teeth fixed if you don't brush them and keep your garbage breath. The poor dentist looking in you're mouth and smelling you're bad breath and looking at the ugly teeth you would had if you're didn’t brush your teeth. For a child it is free but for an adult it's so expensive you could lose your house for under paid bills.


You now know that you should brush your teeth because you're teeth because you're teeth will rot, you get garbage breath and because it's expensive. If you don't brush your teeth  you would win the smelliest breath award which is a long trip to the dentist that you have to pay for so brush your teeth!

River Miln- Why You Should Brush Your Teeth

You Should Brush Your Teeth

Do you have feeble teeth, or have you ever wanted a perfect pearly white smile? I definitely have. I require kids to brush their teeth because you may get bad breath, it is very expensive, and you can get very sore teeth.

Firstly, I require kids to brush their teeth because you can get bad breath. If you don’t brush your teeth then you can get smelly breath and your friends won’t want to listen to secrets if all they get is gross smelling breath. You can make people walk away from you because they don’t want to smell your pizza you had the night before. Also you might be alone for morning tea and lunch because of that breath of yours.

Next, I think kids should brush their teeth because it is way too expensive. If you don’t take care of your teeth when you are young you will have to pay so much money to get your teeth fixed when you are older. Just because your dentist appointments are free now doesn’t they will be free for the rest of your lifetime. Their will be a lot of money going into those teeth when you have to get the black ones pulled out.

Subsequently, you should brush your teeth because you will get very sore teeth and you can not sleep properly. If you don’t sleep well you will be very grumpy in the morning. When you get sore teeth you can’t eat apples and other foods . You can’t last a day without food.

So that's why I think that kids need to brush your teeth because you will get bad breath, it is really expensive, and you can get sore teeth. So remember brush your teeth everyday morning and night.

Why you should brush your teeth






You should brush your teeth because it is good and if you don’t your teeth will be black . When you are not brushing your teeth it will rot your teeth. It will also hurt. It will fall out. You will have to pay the dentist for your teeth.

Brush your teeth now?

You Should Brush your Teeth!

‘Mummy, my teeth is black!” I think you should brush your teeth! If you brush your teeth, you will have a nice breath, no black teeth that could fall out, and you won't have to pay lots of money at the dentist.

My first reason why you should brush your teeth is so you can have a nice breath. If you don't brush your teeth, you will get bad breath. I don’t like having a bad breath.

My next reason why you should brush your teeth is so you don’t get black teeth. Your teeth look weird when they are black, and when they are black they are dead or dying! RIP tooth!

My final reason why you should brush your teeth is because if you go to the dentist, you will have to pay a lot of money to fix your teeth just because you didn’t wash your teeth.

In addition, I think that you should wash your teeth every day!

Tapa Cloths

For the last few weeks in Room 17 we had been making Tapa Cloths. We made these to connect in with Samoan Language Week.A Tapa Cloth is a cloth that is made from bark. It is found in some pacific Islands including Tonga, Samoa and Fiji. To replicate a tapa cloth we used this process.  

First, we got an A3 piece of white paper.
After this we researched Samoan patterns. 
Next, we created a border and used pencil to draw our patterns.
Then we drew a turtle in the middle of the page.
Our next step was to draw patterns inside the turtle.
After this, we went over our patterns in vivid making sure we had a balance of black and white. 
Our second to last step was to scrunch up our art work to resemble Tapa Cloth. 
Finally, we dyed our work and left it to dry. 
We are happy with how they have turned out.

Collaboration Stations with Room 10

Mrs Slee and Miss Pulman thought it would be a great idea for our two classes to collaborate on creating a Keynote presentation.


Room 17 were the tech experts and showed Room 10 how to create a presentation using a Keynote. This involved learning how to:
- find the right icon
- create a text box
- write text
- bold, enlarge and change text colour
- search for a picture to support the sound ( long e sound - e, ee, ea)
- copy and paste a picture into Keynote
- highlight the long ee sound in the word

After Room 17 students taught Room 10, they had to see if they had actually taught Room 10 students how to make the slide. The test was seeing if Room 10 students could make the slide by themselves. Most were successful.







We had fun teaching our buddies and look forward to the next opportunity.

Here are some examples of the Keynote work

Multiplication in Math

For the last few weeks of this term we have been focusing on multiplication. We have learnt 3 strategies.
-Place Value
-Rounding and Compensating
-Doubling and Halving

The posters below show how to use each strategy.



To be able to use these strategies well, we need to have instant recall of the multiplication facts.
Here are 2 games that help us learn them.
