End of Term Celebration!

This afternoon Room 8 celebrated all of the hard work that we have put into our learning this term. We enjoyed a movie while eating the delicious brownie that we baked yesterday (which came out very well) and some popcorn brought in by Anita.

We were also celebrating AJs birthday and our house winners Kowhai and Kauri, so it was a very joyous occasion!

We hope all members of Room 8 have a safe and happy holiday and that they return ready for another term full of learning!

Respect for Others

This morning the year six students from Room 8 have been demonstrating our school value 'respect for others'. Aj, Tumanako and Mathew helped out in Room 9. They supported the year four students to use their devices for their learning and to complete their work.

Alison, Francesca and Anita helped in Room 1, but they were creating cultural costumes for the Tongan group. This was a wonderful way to support the school and Mrs Raj was very grateful for their hard work.

Cooking in Room 8!

Following on from our measurement breakout, we used our fractions and measurement knowledge again today as we baked as a class. We knew that we wanted a shared lunch to end the term, but our whanau have already brought in heaps of food over the last few weeks for camp fundraising. So instead we decided to bake a tasty treat that we can all share on our last day tomorrow.

We split into groups of four and began to make our brownie mixture. We were careful to read the recipe very carefully to make sure that it would taste really good.

Once we had finished making our batch we put all of the mixture into a large baking tray. Then Miss Stone and Charlie added the final ingredient: chocolate! The brownie came out of the oven really well and we are looking forward to trying it tomorrow. 

Breaking out again!

After the success of last weeks break out, the students of room 8 asked if we could have another round. This time we completed a far trickier game that involved some maths.  Not only was this challenging, fun and a great way to improve our collaboration skills, it showed Miss Stone what we need to work on when we learn about measurement next term.

After 35 challenging minutes, lots of discussion and running to grab different maths equipment, Davarni, Telesia, Fasi and AJ successfully broke out and received their bounty. It was wonderful to see everyone working so hard and persevering through!

Our Final Game

As it's the last week of term we have been finishing off our learning for the term. Today we had our final kiwisport lesson. After a quick game of bullrush and paper, scissors, rock we got straight into a game.

We had to put all of our skills into practice and remember the rules, as our refs were watching us closely and timing our game. It was great to see everyone swapping positions and having a go at something new.

We will have to play more netball as a class in the future!
