Welcome Back - it is Term 3 already

Well it is the start of term 3, this year is going very fast!. I hope you have all had a fabulous holiday and rested up for the busy term ahead. We will be carrying on with our Unit of Inquiry on Farming for the next 3 weeks and then onto another very exciting topic. Short stories will surround us in reading and writing and we may even become very skilled orators in the art of storytelling. Statistics has more mean median and mode to learn and the art of graphing. Keep an eye on all the great term 3 websites listed on the right hand column of the blog. Remember to keep challenging yourself and dont fear failure (some of our best ever 'WOW' moments is when we have failed and then later realise clearly how it is done)

TGFU - Class competition has begun.

Each week we have 4 games of basketball over 2 days. We play the different teams. Because we have 5 teams overall we have one team who does not play for a session and they are the ones who referee, keep score and cheer for the other teams. So far it has been a great competition and everyone is working well and cooperating well.

A good idea for all classrooms

This is an idea shared with us by Mrs McDonald at school. She got a doodle art or poster and when students have finished work they are able to come and colour in parts of the picture to help create a class poster. Room Ten has enjoyed this process ... thanks for the idea Mrs McDonald.

A great way to experimant with shapes and colours.

Here are two students who had some fun during their spare time and created two magical wee green people.

Apparently the one on the left is a surfer.

Savannah's experimentation with art mediums.

Room Ten have been looking into Hundertwasser and his famous art of "no straight lines". We have begun putting colour to our art. We are using lots of different mediums like crayon, pastel, chalk pastel, paint, tin foil and cellophane.
