Students' Work

Room 9 is a book giving us all the information we need. Room 9 is a bunch of monkeys jumping around. By Chloee Munn.

Room 9 is a school of fish swimming to school. Room 9 is a rainbow bird flying in the sun. By Callum Hathaway.

Esther Ferguson

Last night at 6:00 pm the police found a big pot 6 metres away from the little pigs house. There was rope all around it and it was upside down. The police flipped it over and the remains of Mr Wolf lay in it. What happened and why. The pigs claim that Mr Wolf blew down their house. Mr Wolf''s doctor said he had a bad cold and so he couldn't even talk. It turns out the pigs destroyed their house and blamed Mr Wolf. They then killed him so he couldn't tell.


Teacher's Message

Dear Parents and Caregivers and anyone else who stumbles upon our page,

Room 9 is made up of 28 wonderful, determined children who all have different interests and hobbies. We are really excited about our camp in Term 3 and you will hear lots about this as we get closer to the date. I'm sure we are in for an excited year and please check back regularly to see what we have been up to.
