Awakeri School

Room 15

Who are we?

We are an amazing class filled with a mix of year 7 & 8s. We have 31 students in our class (5 Year 7s and 28 year 8s) which is a large number and it gets really hot. We have 2 remarkable teachers who are Mrs Derbyshire and Mrs Edgecombe.

Class News


We have been doing dissections, for exmaple a lamb's heart and lungs, liver, kidney, muscle. It was very interesting to see what's inside and it was very fun to cut stuff. We have been juggling with mandarins and its very interesting and has a lot of relateable stuff in it.


Lately we have been studying the technolgy process and and science process for our science fair coming up in Term 3, week 2. We have made fire bricks. We have also been working with ozobots with their coding using the colours.


On Thursday we had Badminton in the hall. We learnt how to serve, how to stand on the court then we had a little game against 3 other teams which was really fun. We have been making poppies for ANZAC day so we had to draw a hand and we weren't allowed to trace our own hands. Then we made a template out of white paper then we traced our template on red paper. We did this a couple of times then we put the poppies in a circle on the hand we drew, then we were done. We have been doing maths swap with room 13 in the mornings so half of room 15 goes to room 13 and half of room 13 go to room 15. On Wednesdays we are doing an art swap with room 15, 14, 13, 12, 11 some of the activities are drama, drawing and music.

We are studying rocks in class as we are going to Waitawheta for school camp. We have learnt about the different types of rock which are Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic. We are now each choosing a Rock, Mineral or Metal and doing a study on it to present to the class.

We have also been talking about leadership as we have lots of year 8s in our class. Some leadership stories are:

I entered myself in as many events as I could to show others they could do it too
