Term 1 2018, week 4: the term so far in Room 8

Welcome to our new blog – so far so many new ventures for Room 8 and Ms Trow… new class, new classroom, new Pukeko syndicate and new class blog 🙂

Keep an eye here for photos, updates and videos through the year of the fun and exciting learning from Room 8 🙂 NOTE:  YOU NEED TO RUN THE VIDEO LINKS USING ADOBE AND AN ADOBE SUPPORTING BROWSER (LIKE FIREFOX – NOT CHROME) – THEY WON’T RUN WITHOUT ADOBE RUNNING AND ALL YOU’LL SEE IS A BLACK SCREEN 🙂 (- and Ms Trow apologises for any upside down photos – she hasn’t managed to get them to stay change to the right way round yet… and she’s been trying hard!! lol)

Week 4 – we have started our home learning this week.  The students have their home learning books and readers in their bags – please ensure they bring these back to school daily as we will keep adding to them and using the readers in our daily program.

This week we have swimming sports on Friday – it will be an awesomely fun day, so please join us if you can 🙂 . All the year 4 students and Ms Trow will be part of the swimming sports day, with year 3 students having a fun and action packed day with Mrs Finucane and Ms Klein.

Next week (week 5) Room 8 will be presenting the class assembly – it’ll be an awesome item if you can attend 🙂

Here is a photo of Room 8 from last week – our first day with all of us present!

Under Construction

A fresh start to the new year has called for a revamp of our school blogging platform. We have switched all of our class blogs to Word Press instead of Blogger.

Due to the change and the busy start of the year our blogs are currently ‘under construction’ – check back in a few weeks and we should be up and running!
