Today we spent quite a bit of time getting prepared for tomorrow's whole school house day fun activities morning. Room 9 students have prepared 6 activity stations - egg and spoon, water challenge, 3-legged race, obstacle course, relays and tug-o-war. It has been a steep learning curve for some in terms of organisation and understanding that simple, easy to follow activities will turn out more successfully for the type of event planned.
We also decided on our class jobs for the next 2 weeks. We will rotate through the different jobs so that everyone has a chance to contribute. Here they are below.
We started on our class novel today. It's a funny and touching book by Louis Sacher called, There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom. The first couple of chapters introduced the antagonist - Bradley Chalkers and the protagonist - Jeff Fishkin.
We will use this novel to introduce some of our learning tasks that students will eventually be working in independently during the year.
Today Harry shared his trophy and cap that are special to him. He was lucky enough to have the cap signed by a Black Cap.
Amelia shared an amazing book, The Making of New Zealand signed by the Minister of Tourism in 1990. It contains a vast number of stunning colour photos of all things kiwi.
