Who are we ?
We are room 4 and we have 24 kids in our class, we are all 5 and 6 year olds and we love our new teachers Mrs Turner and Mrs Morris. All of our 5 year olds have turned 6 and some 6 year olds have turned 7. Our website moniters are Josh, Kalib and Bonnie-Marie.
11th August 2017 Room 4 have recently be learning about rubbish so they decided they should recycle by making a toy out of rubbish. The toy is a catcher. The aim is to get the ball attached to string in the top of the cut sprite lid. Another game is trying to get marbles into the cut holes in a juice carton. Room four are also working on 3-D shapes. Room four are also learning how to do plays. Ella said ''I love doing plays in front of the class because it's fun. Lots of people that live in Awakeri have frosts."
28th July 2017 Today Room Four are painting fish because they got two new fish on Tuesday! There names are Captain Nightshade and Mrs Shimmer. They are swimming in an eco system. Room Four does not feed them because they pick of the oxygen seaweed, but they were so hungry they ate the cleaning snails! Today our special helpers are Boston and Dominic. Room Four are learning about capital letters. Room 4 have been extra helpers becuase they have gone around the school and picked up lots of rubbish and counted them for maths. The special helpers also get to go in the front of the line and get the milk! Their class is reading Dirty Bertie. Our unit is Reuse, Reduce and Recycle. We are doing an experiment. We have buried peels, metal, plastic and a paper bag and we will see what will dissolve the fastest. This has been a great bang for the first week back at school!!!
24th July 2017 The class is just back from the holidays and have told us what their favorite activity was:
21st June 2017 This week we have not started doing anything new but our Website moniters Kalib and Bonnie-Marie have asked us what our favourite things in our class is and here is what we like:
13th June Welcome back so far we have learnt about our parents jobs and how to do them. We have also had fun learning how to sketch, we had to sketch 6 pictures. In maths we are learning about patterns and what they are. We are also learning about how to tell time on clocks. We have been writing thankyou notes to our parents for coming in and talking to us about their jobs. We have started to do interesting experiments now. We have been writing about what we want to be when we grow up. We have drawn volcanoes and cut out snow flakes. We have even made our own chalk! I can't wait for next week!!!
6th June Every Wednesday we are allowed on the new space net that landed near the big kids playground. We are learning how to do jobs like our parents. Seven parents have offered to come in and talk about their jobs. Wow that could be interesting! Also the Fonterra milk tanker came to visit. As always the stories about the milk tanker are down the bottom (Scroll down).
9th May 2017 I hope you had a fun holiday but now we're back at school so here's what we're learning: We're learning about fractions like quarter and halves. We are also enjoying our Prime Maths, that we think is very fun. We are finishing our topic on birds and are starting to learn about police safety and keeping yourself safe. Our parents are going to come in and talk about the jobs they do at home. We are so happy to be back at school and to be catching up on everything as well. Look under students work to read some stories about waddling birds.
April 10 Sorry again for the long wait but now we have got lots of interesting things about room 4. Room 4 have been learning all about birds like how they live, how they find their food and how they eat it. Most of the kids favourite birds are kiwis. Under students work there are 3 pieces of amazing writing of students work. Recently the kiwi camper van came to our school and room 4 got to go in and have a look. They loved it. In maths some kids have been going to room 5 with Mr Sheather and learning fractions and the rest of the class stays in their class to learn fractions in there. This morning room 4 were lucky because they got to go to Life Education and meet Harold. Harold told them all about respect and to treat people how you want to be treated. Dont forget to read the students work and teachers messages below. Have a happy Easter and fun holidays. Bye!
23 March Sorry about the long wait for the next newsletter, so here it is. Room 4 have been learning about the school cat Dexter. Under students work there are some kids writing about Dexter. Chloe New port explained to me about all different birds.
3 March Scroll down to Students' Work to read some stories of a visiting dog!
Teddy came to visit. Miss Moore gave Teddy a treat, but first Miss Moore made him roll over and shake hands and wave. He is 4. Then he had to go but Miss Moore gave us one more pat.
On Thursday I went to school and after fitness Miss Moore brought her dog in. Straight away when her dog came through room four's door, Teddy started to bark. Like this: bark bark bark, it was fun. The whole class liked it. Teddy was furry and soft too. And some people got to do tricks and some people did not. My friend Ella got to do tricks but I did not. Most of the boys got to.
Dexter the cat writting:
I am looking after Dexter.
You have to feed Dexter.
You give Dexter water.
We are lucky to have 2 teachers in our class. We have Mrs Turner on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and we have Miss Moore on Thursdays and Fridays but sometimes we are super lucky and get Miss Moore on Monday, Tuesday or Friday.
DONT FORGET YOUR BOOK BAG!!
