This week Hinau classes had their two sessions with the Life Education classroom.  This was a great learning experience.  We learnt about what a reputation is - good and bad.  How we get these.  We learnt about being good friends and being ourselves around our friends.  Below is some photo's in slides of the Hinau classes.

Room 16/17 Writing motivation with our buddy classes

We were lucky enough to be invited to go with our buddy class on their walk to the local Domain. We showed Arohanui to our buddies by holding their had's walking to and from the Domain and by keeping an eye on our buddy the whole time we were there.

Here are some photos from our experience!

On Friday those of us who didn't go to the rugby fun day, had a go on a website called the Amazing Global Race.  We chose many different places to learn about - Hawaii, Alaska, Italy, France and even New Zealand.  We would watch a video, read some information in a slide show, then take part in a quiz.  When we had finished the quiz we got a passport stamp to the place we had visited.

Room 13 are very excited to finally have some buddies starting to school to help.  We went for a visit on Friday afternoon, we listened to our buddies read and then played some games with them.  We are looking forward to the rest of Room 1 starting soon.

Weekly Class Affirmations
Every week each home class will randomly pick one student to receive the positive affirmations.  This means that each person in their home class space, writes a comment on the whiteboard around them.  Room 13 kicked it off this week and Lucy was our first person.

Writing to Another School
A couple of weeks ago we were busy writing to another school somewhere in NZ. This was part of a programme called get NZ writing.  Below are some photos of Room 13 reading their postcards from our school in Auckland, Peninsula Primary.  We enjoyed reading what other children were interested in and where they were from. At the end you put all the postcards together to make a sign.  Make sure you have a look next time you're in the classroom.
