A Hero Lies in You

This year we have seen the heroes come out in force. Everyone has been doing their bit to help each other as we go through the strange year that is 2020. This year rooms 21, 22 and 23 wanted to show that when we feel down, we just need to remember who we are, what we love and know that, We Are All Heroes!


This movie is about us but also about you. Yes You!

Thank you to everyone how helps us, protects us and supports us to grow.

Keeping Fit at Home

 Another Term and another period of learning from home for us here in Auckland. Yesterday in our Google Meet we talked about the importance of going outside and more importantly moving our bodies during this period of Alert Level 3. 

Together we came up with the Challenge of 25 Star Jumps, 25 High Knees and 5 Sit Ups.

Learning to read a grid

Yesterday and today we learned about reading grid coordinates with the wonderful work created by our student teachers.

In the activity we had to fill in the table and to show the positions of our Pokemon on the grid.
We loved the activity, we specially liked that it used our art.

Here is a video of us working hard at our maths.




We didn't get time to write our stories about the Pokemon on the grid and their positions but will be doing that early next term. We hope our student teacher might come and visit so they could help us and maybe even play a game of battle ship if they are not too busy.

Preposition Videos

On Tuesday we had an amazing time making movies using the preposition we have been learning from our wonderful student teachers.

We started out by watching the example which can be found on this site:



After watch the example all the children were excited to get going. They were given the option of making their video as an Explain Everything using photos and voice recordings (Which they do a lot) or making it using multiple short clips into a movie in iMovie.

Everyone loved making these movies. A group stayed in class with Mrs Carruthers while another group went outside with Mr Vogt. It was cool to see so many different creations.

Here are two examples:

We had so much fun using these awesome activities. Today we watched the introduction videos, played awesome Kahoot and did the first prepositions activity.
