Exploring with the Camera!

Today, the year 6 students in Room 5 explored 2 different photography concepts. We looked at extreme close ups and different textures. It was very interesting thinking and looking at our basic, normal surroundings, yet noticing amazing things that we had never noticed before. We discovered living things and different objects within our school that truly are quite amazing and interesting!

Take a look at what we discovered!

Wheels and Burger Day!

What an awesome day wheels and burger day turned out to be. The weather couldn't have been better and we sure made the most of it. 2 rounds of full on wheeling and a delicious lunch of chicken burgers! We sure enjoyed ourselves and want to thank our Student Council and Miss Simpson for organising another great event!

Turner's Sports Tournament

Yesterday, many of the year 6 students from Room 5 competed in the Turner's Sports Tournament at North Street School. We played netball and rugby, and had a wonderful day filled with some great skill, some good competitive games and fun! Both teams won 2 of their games and unfortunately lost a game each. This meant we come 2nd overall in both sports. Well done to all the children that competed and played their best! Thank you to North Street School for hosting us, again. I'm sure we will be back again next year. Check out the action shots!






Toy stories come to life!

On Friday's over the past few weeks, the year 6's from Room 5 have been working on writing and creating a story where one of their beloved childhood toys is the main character of an adventure story. They took photos and videos of their toy on an adventure, wrote the storyline and created their movies. Check them out!




















Maori Language Week AAA videos!

As part of Maori Language week this week, we looked our school values, Attitude, Achievement, Adventure, and what they mean in Maori. Using this knowledge that we have learnt we put together some imovies to show our learning. Check them out!

Wicked Writing!

Over the past few weeks in Room 5, we have been working on a number of pieces of writing, including character descriptions of a special person. There were many awesome pieces about annoying and amazing siblings, groovy grandparents, and kind loving parents. They were so enjoyable to read and the students have worked so hard to create a piece full of description and personal voice. We would like to share some of our pieces with you. Enjoy!

Gymnastics has begun!

Yesterday we begun gymnastics! We did our first rotation of all the stations, having a go and reminding ourselves what we can and cannot do. Following this, we did some goal setting around what we want to work on and achieve in gymnastics this year.
