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.

Week 9 and Homelearning 30th June.

The Storylines show on Monday was absolutely loved by all of us. It was wonderful to see the books we were familiar with being acted out. The actors were just fantastic and incredibly entertaining.
We had a few ups and downs with our interactive whiteboard during the week. There are still a few problems that will need to be sorted but we have used it during a range of different subject areas. Maths has suddenly become a much more interesting topic as we practice our mental strategies before the train leaves the station (ask your children about that one!). The children from Room 4 who are in the Keas reading group have done a wonderful job reading 10 NZ fiction books during the term and during the week they sat a test to see who would represent our school at the Interschool competition. Out of all the Year 5 and 6's who read the books from the 4 Year 5 / 6 classes we are thrilled to announce Zoe topped the test and will be captain of team 1. Other members of our class who qualified for the teams are Adrianna, Kelsey, Tarran and Jared. Only one other student from Year 6 qualified. WOW!!!!! Mrs McKenzie is incredibly proud of you all and well done to the other children who worked so hard reading the books. The NZ Authors competition is this Tuesday so GOOD LUCK to you all.
It is hard to believe this is the last week of term 2. It has been an action packed term for Room 4!!
With the Homelearning last week we had a few children who had trouble getting their "Wordle" created which is such a shame as it is lots of fun. Never mind this is one BIG learning curve for us all. I am pleased the children have been so good at posting their comments.

1. Spelling on Thursday.
2. Mathletics-you all did really well last week so keep going on gaining your certificates.
3. Miniclips-go into Matthew's blog and click on his "Awesome miniclips" and have a go at some of the online games. Great site Matthew!
4. "Rader's Numbernut"-click on this in our Favourite sites. It takes a while to load but just be patient! Click on the Fractions section and do some of the activities.
5. Create your own blog! Fantastic those of you who have had a go at this-well done Courtney, Matthew, Amy, Demi and Tayla. Have a look at these blogs and post a comment-remember our 2 stars and 1 wish.
You are all becoming real web 2.0 experts!!
Have a great week everyone.
