Immersion Assembly Term 2!

This term for our Inquiry, we are learning about directions so that we can find our way from a start to an end point. This topic is called 'I Like Your Latitude'. We will be learning about positional language, completing mazes and treasure hunts, and creating our own maps to show a journey.

On Monday, we had Immersion Assembly in the hall. Team 2's movie was about how we need to look left, look right, look up and down, to find treasure (or in this case Easter Eggs)!

Cats Play!

The Cats reading group, made up of children from Rooms 25, 26 and 27, performed their play 'The Best Animal in the Forest' on Monday at our team assembly.

I am very proud of how well they did in front of an audience of their peers. The animals moves and noises were very enjoyable, which I'm sure you will hear from the laughter evident in our clip.

Please watch our performance and leave your comment on our blog.

(Apologies for the sound quality, my usual voice recorder (my phone) was busy being employed as a microphone for our narrator.)

Our PENN for Term 1!

Room 27 had heaps of fun colouring in a collaborative Kiwi artwork. We also talked about our own cultures, where we have come from and what we like about living in New Zealand and being kiwis.

We hope you enjoy our movie. Please leave a comment.

We started our very first Clubs session on Friday. Clubs is when we split up into groups, different from our normal classes and go to one of the four teachers in our space. Mrs Carter takes the Gardening Club, Ms Tumahai take a Bike Riding Club, Miss Moran takes the Blogging Club and I take the Cooking Club.

We made banana muffins! Every child had a job to do, be it sifting the flour, measuring out the baking powder or mashing the banana.

While they were cooking, we could smell very appetising scents wafting over from the kitchen. Once the hot muffins had cooled down from the oven, we tasted them. It was unanimous! They were yummy!

Here is a photo of us about to tuck in!

Team 2 Murals

We had a great time this term, creating our 3 murals now on display outside Team 2's space. Each image is a representation of a different piece of the Glen Innes and Pt England area. Each child got to choose a picture that had significance to them, and represent that image though drawing and then painting on the board.

We had great experiences learning how to mix colours and we now understand what a background is!

We hope you enjoy our work!

Team 2's Hyperstudio Self-Portraits!

Everyone in Team 2 really enjoyed making their self-portrait in Hyperstudio this term. They thought about their culture and what is important to them, and included these details in their backgrounds.
Please watch the movie below to see everyone's contribution. We would love your comments!
