Student of the Month

A big congratulations to James who was awarded Room 11 Student of the Month for August! James is always respectful and works hard to make good choices for his learning. He looks after his buddies at school and is an all round cool kind of kid! Way to go, James.

Science, Science and even more Science!

Thank you so much to all the families in Room 11 who have been supporting their child with their Science Project at home. Everyone in the class has their science board and ingredients/equipment ready to go! I think it's safe to say that Science is a firm favourite subject in Room 11 at the moment, and our learning has been tremendous. Stay tuned to hear more about the key concepts we have been exploring. 

Here's a few pictures of us painting our boards in the sun - wasn't Wednesday a beautiful day? Too bad it didn't last!

 Here are some photos of some of the children sharing their Science experiments with their peers. Children will be repeating their experiments for the Kiwi, Tui and Kereru teams during our Celebration slot in Week 9.

The Solar Eclipse 2017

On Friday we had a great time learning about the Solar Eclipse that happened in America earlier in the week. We watched a video on youtube to learn about how a solar eclipse occurs and then we wrote reports on what we found out. We had lots of fun completing an impromptu art piece too! Did you know that the next solar eclipse in NZ will happen in 2066? We figured out that the children in Room 11 will be either 56, 57 or 58 years old by then (let's not talk about how old Miss Chalmers will be!!)

Thank you Ella-Zae for taking the photos!
