Room 4 2010

Hello everyone, it is great to be back posting on our class blog. We have had a very busy Term 1. The weather has been stunning and we have been glad that our school has a lovely pool. We had our swimming sports in February. In Week 6 the Year 6's went to camp for 4 days. We went to Shakespear Lodge which is situated in Shakespear Regional Park on the Whangaparoa peninsula north of Auckland. I will get the students to post some comments and photos.

Tuesday 17th June-Author visit-by Morgan.


Today room four went to visit an author in the library . The author's name was Christine Hurst. Christine Hurst wrote a book and went to get it published so she could read it to us. The book was called "The boy who bounced around Aotearoa New Zealand". The book is about a boy who kept on jumping on his bed when his mum told him not to so she told him he would bounce away. Christine thought of this idea when her three year old son was jumping on his bed and Christine told him, "Stop jumping on the bed."
He said "Why?"and she replied "Because...
you will jump away."So she wrote a book about it. She read the book to us and then we asked her questions.
"What are your favourite type of books?"
"I like picture books, chapter books and sometimes nonfiction."
"Who is your favourite character ?"
"Definitely Zack."

Hi Room 4
I enjoyed reading about your visit with Christine Hurst. You wrote about it in a most interesting manner Morgan. I thought you might be interested to know that the students at Pt England School have published a podcast about this book and in their blog post they have recommended that people come to this blog and read more about it.
