Trialling of Tumblr Blog

I have been trying to update the classroom blog often, but find I often don't have the time to get to it, so I am trialling tumblr as I can post instantly as I take photos and videos.  Here's the link to see what you think.  Feedback welcomed  :)

Enviro Awards

What fabulous students there are in Room 5.  This term, 3 boys (Joshua, Sam and Dominic) were given a special award by Mr Orr for all the work they have been doing in creating and keeping our school looking fantastic.  They have been busy creating a new sandpit, raking leaves and spreading mulch.  Why?  Because they want to.  Good job boys, so proud of you.

Term 2 - recap

We have been very busy this term - we have been dancing our hearts out, learning maori, writing explanations about the weather, learning to multiply and divide and measure, of course reading.  Here are few photos of what might help catch up our viewers.

A Visitor from out of Town

This week we have had a very cute visitor to Room 5.  He/she was a very good listener and enjoyed all our chatter.  They explored the playground a little too.  Welcome to Morepork from Belfast ABC of Christchurch.  I am sure you will have lots of tales to tell the children when you get home.

Key Kid Week 7

This week the School Value we were looking at was 'Ambition'.  This week's award goes to Eden who has set herself some personal goals and is working at achieving them.  Well done Eden.

Day 3 Run, Jump, Throw

Today it was a go at the high hurdles.  Some great action shots of the kids.  Then we had a first go at the hammer throw.  I was impressed!  The children did really well for a first time.  Next was relays and then some triple jump practice.  Hop, Step, Jump!
