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

What a fantastic week last was. The Art exhibition was awesome and Room 4's Kites and paintings were much admired. It was great to see such a huge variety of outstanding art from all areas of the school. I tried to put some photos on the blog but it was going VERY SLOW tonight so I will try another day. Our three Year 5 Gym girls in Room 4 trained hard for the Champion of Champions competition which was held on Friday and they performed extremely well. I was so proud of the all the gym children and the results were excellent.
We only have 2 weeks of school left before the holidays but there is much to do yet. The Interschool cross country is on Tuesday and I will be accompanying the school team. Good luck to the whole team.
HOMELEARNING: We will continue using the conservation site so keep viewing the video clips on there. I would like you all to create a cartoon this week.
1. Go to
You will need to register first but that is really easy to do. Then create your cartoon with a NZ conservation theme. Remember to save it when you are finished.
2. Go to this Author's site-
Under Todd's photo with his dog click on "Here's a bio of Todd" and read his biography. After that go up to the top menu and click on "Fun" and have a go at some of the activities.
3. Go to the National Library site at and have a good look around their site. They always put up the latest book reviews on really good quality books. They also have lists of good books to read for your age group.
4. Dragon Maths-you will have 2 pages to do this week-page numbers are on the board.
5. Spelling lists go home Thursday for testing.
Have a super week everyone-the weather forecast looks quite promising. Remember your whanau gear on Monday and Cross Country people come prepared on Tuesday.
PARENTS-calendar pages are at the office if you want to preview them.
