Room 7 has been learning the sounds of letters like e, c, a etc. They did for the letter ‘E’ Elly elephant pictures and for ‘C’ clever cat masks and more. They were learning how to recognize shapes by doing shape art and more fun stuff like that. They had a lot of fun learning with their teacher. They also had fun playing with the ipads (math games) and playing with their friends.

This year Room 24 has made wonderful artwork. They have made bar charts (linked to their maths) and they made it so it looked like they were in space. Room 24 have recently completed some Matariki art. Wow! Isn't that amazing? They have also drawn colourful pictures and written myths about how the Matariki stars ended up in the sky.

Year 3 and 4 had a great time at Swimming Sports. They lined up their house colours: Stewart, Macmillan, Gledstanes and finally Mulgan.
They got points for coming 1st, 2nd &3rd in races and the house captains tallied up how many points each house got.
These amazing kids did dolphin dives, breaststroke and one or two lengths of freestyle. They spent many hours practising for this! Well done and good effort everyone!

Room 12 has been reading the BFG by Roald Dahl and they made some special trumpets. The trumpets can hear nightmares so the BFG knows if a kid has had a nightmare. Then they can blow in it and it blows out the nightmare and it will replace it with a good dream.
They also made dream catchers. If people have nightmares, the dream catcher will catch the nightmare and they will have a good dream instead. Some of the dream catchers have a love heart in the middle.

The kids in Room 1 were learning to write neatly and colour neatly. They were also learning to get along nicely and include one another.
In Room 2 they were writing, reading and doing ready for learning, where they prepare for the older years at Katikati Primary School. In writing they were learning how to spell and use fullstops and capital letters. They are going to be superstars at reading and writing!

This week Rooms 3 and 4 have had Sea Week. They all made awesome jellyfish and turtles with facts inside them and they made little books that said ‘shark attack’ on them with shark facts inside. They got to make things that had something that they were learning, like opening their eyes under water. Some of the boys when we got there were making cars out lego. They also did some cool voting of their favourite colours and their favourite colour was mostly blue. Well done Rooms 3 and 4 : )

Recently Rooms 8-9 had a bad thing…
They did not know how to survive the terrible test. But they had the chance to escape!
Now for the fun to happen. The kids did some face art! They got a photo of each other and they ripped and cut out their facial body parts like their eyes, mouth, nose etc. The kids also made wonderful creations of lego houses and towns and cities.

In class this week room 21 & 22 have been doing emoji writing. What is emoji writing, you may ask? Well, emoji writing is where you would write a normal story but you replace some of the words with emoji stickers that look as that word describes.
In reading they have been making comic strips about superheroes and evil villains saving/destroying the world. ( For example: Super speed girl, Captain Dog, Come back, Elf man… etc). Also, they have been making paper mache masks to match their super hero/ villain.
In maths they have been learning about money and the animals/people that are on it. After researching they created their own money and added an animal/person of choice.
In art room 21 & 22 have been upcycling cardboard tubes that were to be painted and glued together to represent a Christmas tree. This has been entered into the Katikati Upcycling Christmas Tree competition.
