Golden Bay

This holidays we went to Takaka for 3 days. We went to Wainui Falls. It was 40 minutes each way. It was a big waterfall that came rushing down. We left at 10 am. We stopped at the salmon farming. We caught 9 salmon between us.

ColAR Magic

On our last day of Term Three we had a bit of treat colouring and bringing our creations to life using the ColAR app on the iPads.

Here is the link to the app if you would like to try it out for yourself. ColAR itself is free but you buy more of the colouring prompts as you like.

Here is a little video showing how Augmented Reality works with ColAR.
