Awakeri School

Room 5

Who are we?

We are year 2 students and we are the oldest room in the junior syndicate that means that we have to be great role models for the younger kids, and will be great role models for the students younger than us. Most of us are six and turning seven this year. We are all in a great class room 5, and are looking forward to starting middle school next year. We are all trying hard to achieve in our work, as much as possible. We also have a nice amazing teacher called Mr Sheather. We all are looking forward for a great year with our friends and teacher and to see what adventures we come across.

Students' Work
My favorite thing in the holidays was that my brother and I went to Auckland to go see our dad. When we got to my dad's it was so late. Before we went to bed we got to go on the ipads. I played a game called cooking fever. My brother played cooking fever too. After the ipads we went to bed. In the morning it was Sunday.

Today we launched a water rocket. We tried to get it to go over the tree and so we did. The pump is the thing that pumps up your bike. The bottle suddenly went turbo high.
