first cultural group lesson

This is when we had our first cultural group lesson  with the juniors.

We are calling it cultural group this year because our school has many children from different cultures and we thought it would be good to look at some others.

We had to teach them how to do the moves in Toia Mai and if we had enough time we were allowed to teach them Utaina. 

We had a lot of fun with the juniors but it was hard for some of us. 

At the end we all came inside and shared what we had done.

Welcome back

Here's Room 6 and they have had a great start to 2011.  We took lots of photos at places all around the school but we liked this one best.  We're on our new playground equipment.

Lately we have been learning that we have the power to make our learning space better.  We are doing this by maybe having class meetings, getting a class pet, having a construction table, and more.  We are in groups and we have to find out what we want.

Our maths subject for this term is measurement.  Today we did perimeter and it's real easy.

We have been helping to design the class timetable.  We talked lots about when people learn best.  We had to fit in maths, reading and writing as well as all the fun stuff.  It was quite hard.

It sounds like everybody had a great holiday.  Some people even went over-seas - lucky.

Now we're busy practicing for the cross country at Balmacewen. We're all enjoying Room 6! The best room in the school.
