Simon Says

On Tuesday this week the Octopus reading group read a book called Simon Says. We decided that it would be fun if everybody followed along whilst they read the story. What fun we all had!

Learning at School

Here is Sally in front of the museum

This week our teacher Sally has been in Rotorua at the Learning @ School Conference. She has been learning lots of great fun and interesting ideas to bring back to the classroom. In one of her workshops she learnt about digital storytelling. Here is the story that she created.

Wow we have already had two weeks at school. We are all getting to know one another and have been thinking about how we can get along together and be great friends. As part of this we have talked about our rights and responsibilities and have written a class charter. This week we are looking forward to going to Tahuna beach with the rest of the children in the Kowhai Syndicate. We are especially looking forward to riding on the train at the Modellers pond.

Here we are on our first day in Room 12.
