Term 1 updates!

Mrs Valencia was out of the class for a while due to her eye surgery, a big thank you to Mrs Hunt who came in and taught Room 11 for a week! 
We learnt all about shapes, numbers, did some awesome Art and also some descriptive writing about the Te Aroha weather!

Here is a piece of writing from Joe:
Yesterday the weather was the mother of all storms. 
A heavy tree hit lots of houses and they were busted. No one got hit. The sound of the wind was whistling and our door jammed and we couldn't get out. We were all hungry.

Many of us in Room 11 like the Cylinder shape! We used toilet paper rolls to create different characters. Check them out below! :)

Here are some photos of Room 11 learning some Rippa Rugby skills with Bill from Sport Waikato!

Room 11 love performing plays. We are learning about characters, setting, plots and props to make a good play.

We start our days with some morning fitness. This gets our bodies moving and prepares us for the day ahead.

Below we are getting to know students from Room 2 during Tuakana-Teina

Some of our boys made some teachers smile, delivering goodies on Valentines Day!

"The Volcano Experiment"

Today we did a science experiment. First we put down newspaper so the pretend lava didn't stain the blue table. Then we put vinegar in the top and added a teaspoon of baking soda. The ingredients reacted making a gas called carbon dioxide. It reacted. The top of the volcano oozed and oozed down the side of the volcano. It was messy, very messy.

Buzz Groups

Every Monday and Friday we have Buzz Groups. This is where Room 11 students have the opportunity to share something exciting they have done or something they are looking forward to.

Children also love to bring things in to share and show the class. This is great for oral language, listening skills, building confidence and speaking in front of others. 

Our first swimming session with Room 8.
