Last PENN for Room 11 2019

This is our last PENN movie for Room 11 2019. I really enjoyed dressing up and putting on a play. I liked learning about how to keep ourselves safe in and around water at Glen Innes Aquatics. Making Fruit kababs was awesome. Playing Chubby Bunny for our our writing experience. Our treasure box has been full of fun and treats and slime. Reading about pizza and then we made pizza. We went to the beach to explore the rock pools, that was lot of fun. We have had so much fun learning together in Room 11.

Smart Relationships

In our Cyber Smart lesson with Mrs Collins we had a challenge. 
We had to work together and try to make the tallest tower. We needed to work
and listen to each other. Come up with ideas together and make sure we all had 
opportunities to share our ideas. Thank you Mrs Collins this was fun.

Digital Tecnology

Today we met Whaea Bex from Digital Technology. Whea Bex will be helping us to better understand digital technology. We got into groups of 3 and Whaea Bex told us to put the hand that we write with behind our backs and the 1 hand to make a paper plane. This required us all to communicate, work together as a team. We were very successful.

3D Puzzles with Mrs Fraier.

On Friday mornings we have a very lovely lady called Mrs Frier, who will be coming in to help us put together 3D puzzles. This week we did Christ the Redeemer statue. Christ the Redeemer is a statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil that was built as a symbol of Brazilian Christianity. In 1850, the idea of building a religious monument was first suggested by a Catholic Priest. It wasn't until 1920 when a group petitioned for support to build a landmark statue that it became a reality. I wonder what we will do next Friday.

Cyber Smart

Room 11 will be learning how to be Cyber Smart with Whaea Heather on Friday mornings. In our first session we watched a video called Pause and Think. We discussed what is a Smart Relationship and who we can have Smart Relationships with.

DMic Lesson with Room 11

We have been measuring and decision making, questioning, and experimenting. We have measuring the length of the pools at the Glen Innes Aquatics Centre, how many metres we can swim, the longest a student kick the ball and the shortest distance. We measured the distance between Ms Tumahai's and the socket to find out how long the charger cord has to be. We had so much fun making and measuring our team stack of sandwiches and then adding up all the stacks to find out long it was.
Unfortunately we all ate our sandwiches before we got to measure the whole class.
But lucky for us we recorded our groups stacks then added them all to get the total. Watch our video clip to see how much our classroom stack measured.

Happy Easter

We had an Easter Egg Hunt in Team 2 on the last day of school.
We looked left, right, up, down and all around.
Ruby, Mrs. Carter's Bunny hid our eggs really well.
We found some outside and in the bushes. There were Chocolate eggs in the
planter boxes under chairs and inside boxes. We had so much fun.
Thank you and Happy Easter from Room 25.

Team 2 Clubs

Every Friday Team 2 split up into four clubs. Each club is run by a teacher in the space. We have a Gardening club where students learn about plants and how they grow. A Cooking club where students learn to make and cook simple but very delicious food. A blogging club where students learn how to blog and post. A bike club which teaches students who can't ride a bike can learn in our big open and safe areas. In bike club we have had a lot of falls but the best part is the student want to ride so they just get back up and keep trying. Bike club has been very successful we have taught a lot of students to ride this term.

My focus is  to encourage the students in Room 25 to write. We write about the experiences we do together. The slides show ways I support the student with writing.  Each slide is a link to a picture on their writing class site.
