Toa and Izzy are year 6s from Mrs Dixon's class. They are Room 7's wet day monitors, and they have also started coming to our class to read to the children each week. The children really enjoy having older students read to them
Over the last few weeks Room 7 has been inquiring into insects. Last week we decided to make a giant weta. The children worked together to problem solve what materials to use, how to construct and decorate it so it looked like a real weta. The children have become weta 'experts' and have been eagerly sharing their knowledge with visitors to our class.
The completed weta is now hanging on Room 7's back wall. Please don't be scared when you visit our class!
What a busy day today! Not only was it Daffodil Day, but it was also Mrs Bartlett's birthday. Before the Daffodil Day concert, Room 7 made her a birthday card and delivered it wearing our Daffodil Day head bands. We also sang Mrs Bartlett 'Happy Birthday'. Yes, Room 7 is the cutest class in the school!
Many thanks to all the parents who were able to come and support their children and Daffodil Day.
Mrs Rush was given a whole lot of tennis balls by Koru Tennis Club. She had a problem that she needed our help with. She wanted to know how many tennis balls there were so she could work out how many to give to her teacher friends.
We started to count them in ones but there were so many, and we got interrupted and mixed up. We problem solved and decided to put them into groups of ten. We all took turns at making groups of ten. Mrs Rush helped us to count in tens. There were 232 tennis balls!
