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.

Week3 Term3

What a busy week! We have had some members of Room 4 gaining fantastic results in the Australasian Science test and others playing rugby against another local school, several went to a chess competition (have a look on our Senior school blog in our profile) and the members of the Senior dance group performed their amazing item at School Assembly on Friday. Also we heard all 32 speeches during the week. WOW- Miss McCallister and I were most impressed with the high standard of the speeches. Well done everyone! We will hear the semi-finalists this week and then choose our class representatives who will be saying their speeches at the Senior school competition. The kites are coming on and really looking brilliant. Unfortunately one of the kites had a mind of its own on Friday- while it was outside drying it suddenly flew up over the school roof never to be seen again!!!!
This week on Thursday we have the first of our three-way conference sessions. I am looking forward to the children sharing their learning with their parents. We are counting down to the Olympics now and have started various related activities.
REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR WHANAU GEAR FOR GYMNASTICS ON MONDAY.
Wasn't the Disco fun on Friday night!!! Have a great week everyone :)
