Proud Teacher Moment
As a teacher, you have moments where you are very proud of your students. For me one of those moments was when our DP let me know that the 'Big Kid' had thought about the safety of the smaller students on the Orix of our new playground, this was before school. The 'Big Kids' asked the little ones to sit on the inside while they had the outside and did the pushing.

Convince me you can do it
As part of our Inquiry - students have done a scan of our school, identified an area that needs some attention and have been set the task to persuade us that their project is something that needs to be done. Below are two of the persuasive letters completed so far. I am seriously impressed with the passion and problem solving these learning are have and are using!
Term 2... giving back
This term our focus for learning is health and safety, giving back to our school and wider community under the topic of 'Our Community needs us'. We will also be Dancing through the Decades. Watch this space for what we get up to.
Get Writing NZ
During the last month, Room 10 have been involved in the School Get Writing Project, we have been preparing our writing to send to Greytown School in Masterton. Room 10 has crafted a Colour Poem, this was an incredible experience for all of us, each child crafted a line about our particular colour, then we worked collaberatively to organise these lines into a poem, we recrafted, changing words and tenses to help our poem have flow, rythme and create imagery.
A small box of treasure came as part of our writing kit, children have built word bank of 'sticky words' - adjectives, descriptive words, looked up facts and statistics about their objects, crafted a secret the object has and written about where it was 2 weeks ago. These thoughts, ideas, learning were then sculpted into a poem, scribed onto a postcard which is going to be sent to our buddy class in Greytown. We are looking forward to receiving the poetry that our buddy class has prepared for us.
