Junior Assembly

Today is the last day of term. We had our turn to present to the juniors. Sisley and Cooper read the script. It was tricky! We shared some poems and sang our favourite songs. The teachers gave out certificates. It was very exciting. Please check out our proud faces...

Today is Beanie's last day with us. She is studying teaching at the university. We have loved having her in room 11. She has had lots of fun and she is coming back later next term again so we are very pleased. Have a good holiday break everyone.

We were the Green Team at lunchtimes for a week. We get to wear the vest and pick up rubbish with the tongs. It is so much fun and we all get a turn.

We have been learning about growing. We are so much bigger and can do so much more than when we were babies.
We have experimented to find out what plants need to grow.

We planted some little garden seeds. They had a seed mat and soil as well as a pot that can go in the ground in the garden. We grew lots of plants and then we took them home.

Safe Walking with Constable Gordon

Room 11 is so lucky to have Constable Gordon visit us again. He took us out to have a ride in his police car. We got to use the microphone and hear the loud siren! The car has lots of bright lights and we wore our and sat in the booster seats to have a ride.

Room 11 and 12 are still carefully counting how many days we have been at school. We are over 20 now!  Constable Gordan came to show us how to safely cross the road. We started to have a go and we got it right. He was so proud of our listening.
Here are some of us being very careful to stop, look and listen before we cross.
We know to keep looking as we cross.

We learned a poem to help us remember:

Stop, look and listen
before you cross the street,
Use your eyes, use your ears 
before you use your feet!

Welcome to Room 11 2018!

We have started the year with learning all about our school and classroom. We have met lots of new friends and we are having so much fun getting to know everyone

In room 11 we have a Star of the Day every day. They are lucky because they get to be the leader and to read in the castle with two friends.

In our class we are counting the school days until we reach 100. Then we will have a party to celebrate.

We have been to football with three fantastic coaches. The field had a bouncy fence.

Art Gallery

We have been working hard studying Lynley Dodd as an illustrator of our favourite books. We tried to make our art pieces show the cheeky and charming characters that she draws.

Finally every class at Victoria Avenue displayed their amazing art in the Art Gallery. We went to visit and Anna played beautiful music for us while we admired all the art. Here are some of our favourites:

Learning Te Reo!

We are so lucky to have Nancy teach us how to speak Maori. She helps us to learn the days of the week and numbers too. We love to play games and remember our new words.
