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 2 of Term 3.

What a great start we had to Term 3. Miss McCallister is doing a fabulous job teaching Room 4. She introduced several great Maori legends for Maori Language week and we started making our wonderful kites on Friday. Everyone enjoyed the drama activities acting out the parts of the legend "Rona and the Moon". On Monday we started doing gymnastics with Mr Whatman and he was very impressed with the number of talented gymnasts that we have in Room 4. It was good to welcome Koro Percy back to our school on Tuesday and we have started learning some new waiata (songs) and the Kapa Haka group had their first session. I think we are going to hear the haka echoing around our school soon. And what a fabulous day we had for the school cross country on Friday. Congratulations to all the children who achieved their goals.
We are looking forward to hearing all the speeches this week. There is quite a lot of excitement about them and I know you have all been working hard on writing and practising them. Good luck to you all.
HOMELEARNING FOR WEEK 2.
We will keep it easy and fun this week as I know you will still be practising your speeches. We will start getting you to do some OLYMPICS activities.
1. Go to our Favourites site and click on the link there. Play the "WORLD FLAGS MATCH GAME".
2. Click on "OLYMPICS JIGSAW" and do the jigsaw.
3. Go back to the main page and click on "GYMNASTICS SLIDE PUZZLE" click start. Write down how many clicks it took you to complete it.
4. Go back to the main page and click on "NAME THAT FLAG".
You can reset and redo any of these games during the week.
5. Click on the Beijing Countdown at the top of the right side of our blogsite. Make yourself familiar with this website as we will be using it at school too.
