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.

Term 3 begins.

21st July 2008
Welcome back to school everyone. I hope you had a restful, happy holiday. The weather wasn't wonderful was it but it gave me a good excuse to curl up in front of the fire and read lots of books.
It was great to read a few comments on our blog from some of our class members during the holiday. Well done those of you who gave some thought to your speech.
Miss McCallister and I spent a couple of days at school and lots of time at home preparing for the first few weeks. She is looking forward to being your teacher. We have a very full programme organised again. Dancers need to remember you have a practice first thing on Monday and we have gymnastics with Mr Whatman at 9:45am so bring your whanau gear. Please remember to bring your morning tea and lunch in an appropriate container so you can take your scraps home again. Let's see if we can be the best class at being environmentally aware.
HOMELEARNING
1. Speeches: Everyone needs to spend their Homelearning time writing their speeches this week. We will be going over this in class and you will have specific instructions glued into your book. This is the major focus for the next two weeks. Check out the website I have added in our Favourites list.

2. Maori Language week-this term Koro Percy is back at our school teaching Te Reo Maori in classes. He will be taking a Kapa Haka group on Tuesdays at 2:15-3pm. Maori language activities will be a focus in our room during this week and we would like you to have a look at the Maori language site that I have added to our favourites list. It is interactive so make sure you have your volume turned up on your computer.
3. Mathematics-You will need to do Page 57 in your Dragon Maths book-focus for the first 2 weeks is "TIME". Also get back into Mathletics-we are not featuring at all at the moment so see if you can improve your results. We are going to have a 4 OPS basic facts test this week and it would be awesome to see all of you improving on last term's results.
4. CROSS-COUNTRY-this will take place on Friday (weather permitting) so remember to bring your gear and do some running each day.
