Class News
9 April 2018 Room 8 have been doing this postcard to school with a metaphor at the back. We received a piece of art work from Torbay School. If you would like to see the pics please scroll down. We later on also sent back to Tourbay school one of those blue posters but with something different on it.

Here are some metaphors that are at the back of the poster. Here is the poster that Tourbay School gave to us.


4 April 2018 In room 8 we have been learning about birds and we have talked about the commonwealth games. Here are some facts about birds. 1. The bird Whio has a bit of rubber on the end of the beak, Whio only stay in moving water, 3. Whio have webbed feet. Also our camp photos are now avalaible so don't forget to check them out.

This is our group with Mrs Morris building a hut. Here is our class photo with our parents at Lions Hut.
Here is Mrs Morris tubing with us. It was funny when she fell in! This is us doing the granny track.

27 March 2018 Last Tuesday we went to camp. It was extremely amazing. On the first day we went for a huge walk up the Granny's track, we went for a swim down the rivers and the boys and some girls did a bomb. On the second day we went tubing and on the third day we made fun hunts for parents. But on Friday it was a sad day because it was time to go home. Scroll down to Students' Work to read some camp stories.

15 Feb "Yeah" There are 5 more days till camp and it is goting to be fun. We are going to going tubing, also we are going to catch eels. Also we are going to be doing a scary burma trail. We are so excited we hope it goes well. There are lots of other activities too but we think our favourite one is going to be Star Gazing. Miss Howard also has lots of surprises, we wish our camp was today.

8 Feb Room 8 is going to the Lions Hut for their camp in 11 more days. We said "Yeah" because we were so excited. We are going to stay for 2 nights and 1 day. Our imagination is that we are going to for bush walks at night, going to see a mind blowing view and we are going to eat a lot of food. We hope we have a great time at camp.

I heard the whistling amazing colourful birds they were bright and while I was eating my, scrumptious dinner. I saw the swirly squishy mince on my plate as I took a delicious bite. I felt the curly bolagnaise in my oozy mouth. I wondered if people were going to have more because it was so delicious.

Nate Parsons

I heard the river splashing agasint my body as me and Nevaeh floated down the icey cold river. I saw the blackberries reaching out to grab me. I felt the rocks bumping our tube. I wondered if the tube would pop when we were on it.

Alecia Grimes

I heard people screaming loudly as me and Nate tripped over the big, bushy, dirty forest steps. I saw the bright, colurful glowsticks leading in a long line. I felt sad when we got to the end because I wished we could do it again from the start. I wondered if any one else wanted to be at the front.
