Room 30 rocks!

Today we are joining with the rest of Team 3 in making some Rocks, similar to the Roto Rocks that you may have seen in places such as the Redwoods.  Weather permitting, we are hiding our rocks either tomorrow or early next term, in the Waitawa Bush for others to find!

Check out this short movie of us today:

Swimming Fun

For the last two weeks we've been participating in swimming in the school pool.  We have been practicing our skills as well as thinking about how to keep ourselves safe in the water.  If we do well during our structured learning time, Mrs Belt gives us some free time at the end of each lesson.  Here are a few photos of us enjoying some of that free time!



Crazy Hair and Dress Up Day

Yesterday Room 30 looked a little bit different!  Room 30 learners joined in with the rest of the school coming to school in some amazing dress up outfits with some very crazy hair.  Mrs Belt took a photo of us all and we sure looked amazing.



Congratulations Bradley

This week Bradley took home the Principals Award for Room 30 for his wonderful work ethic.  Bradley has been trying really hard with his activities in class and striving for a very high standard.  Keep it up Bradley.

Our Trip to the Childrens Art Cottage

Today Room 30 had an amazing trip to the Children's Art Cottage.  We really enjoyed the trip on the bus and there was some great singing of "The Wheels on the Bus".  When we arrived at the Art Cottage, the wonderful educators there shared a local legend with us as well as a piece of art created to represent this legend.  We had to close our eyes and listen to the story so we could visualise what was happening.

 

Then Room 30 started creating their own art.  We learnt some great times for using pastels and there are some amazing pieces of art underway.  We have taken these back to our classroom to finish over the next week.



 

A huge thank you to the parents that came with us today, without who the trip would not be possible. This is just a selection of some of the photos that were taken on the trip today.  We look forward to having our artwork up on the wall for viewing soon.
