Dress ups brought so much conversation amongst the children in Room 12.  Rakin, Phoenix, Monnier, Toloa, Ngatereapii and Lutelo were bursting to share  their stories.   Ngatereapii played a guitar ( a long playing block became his guitar).  Phoenix became a singer and sang We know the way... and others became the band members. What an amazing band I witnessed and listened to.

In term 3 we will learn to do these activities independently. We will learn to write our stories and will also be learning about being prepared to deal with emergencies.

Matariki Celebration

Image
To celebrate Matariki Room 12 made their own headbands. On their headbands they drew the seven stars that appear once a year in our sky. They lined up to get to the hall where performing groups were ready to share the story of Manurewa, our own community where we live so proudly.

Science of Bubbles

Image
Children were fascinated by the bubbles of different sizes and shapes.  This amazing scientist demonstrated bubbles of all kinds with so much ease and explained the science behind it in the simplest way possible for the children.  Children just got mesmerised.  They cheered and clapped, and blew bubbles to get them go up the ceiling to get stuck.

Week 7's blog

Room 12 is a busy learning  place. Everyone is writing a story to share with others.






In our New Entrant Class room 12 we enjoy talking about the pictures and putting them in correct order.  We like doing this kind of activity.  It makes us think and talk about the sequence of the actions that is taking place.

Maths is intersting

Image
In Maths we were learning to make patterns.  Antonio attempted to do the patterns.  In the first row he did one blue, one red and continued the pattern. In the second and the third rows he continued the pattern well but in the fourth row he got stuck.  When you look at it he got 75% correct. A pretty good result for a 5 year old's independent work. You can continue a pattern Antonio. Keep it up!

William learned the skills of colouring, sorting, cutting, pasting and counting by doing this activity sheet in Math. He did it independently.  Well done William for learning so many skills.
