How Do We Get Our Markers To Work?

Mr Bell is always sending us up to the office to get new whiteboard markers for our class. He was telling us about something someone had posted on the Facebook Teachers NZ group and we wanted to try it. Ellma even explained how you can try it with your own worn out whiteboard markers.

Ki O Rahi Training

During Term 2 Room 7 are learning about the legend of Ki O Rahi and how to play this game. Thanks to Kelly Sport coaches Shanice and Ronnie, we are working hard to learn all the names for the zones, developing the skills and enjoying our journey. There is a tournament coming up on 26th June, so we are hoping to bring at least two teams along to enjoy the day.

Rippa Rugby Tournament

On the 4th of April two teams of Year 5 and 6 students participated in the Tamaki Cluster Rippa Rugby Tournament at Mt Wellington War Memorial Reserve. This was our first time being involved with this sport and quite a challenge for our children.

Although we didn't win all our games, our children thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot about teamwork, sportsmanship and supporting each other.

Our heartfelt thanks to our coach Hamish Fraser from Marist Rugby Club, the expert referees from Pro Sport Auckland and Megan Grayson of Auckland Rugby for such a wonderful opportunity.

Next up...KI O RAHI.

Big Plans To Help Us Improve Our Writing.

This week Room 7 have learned a new way to plan, edit and craft our writing. We like to call it "St. Patrick's School Writing Process". Each student used their presentation skills to create Digital Learning Objects to help us remember each of the steps.

Reading: Week 1 2019

This week we read the first chapter of The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. In this chapter we learned a lot about what the Iron Man was like because the author describes him very well. He said the Iron Man was as tall as a house, his head was shaped like a dustbin and was as big as a bedroom so we know he is very big. We enjoyed the way the chapter introduced the character and want to read more because there are so many questions we need answered now. Things like where he came from, what he is doing here, who made him and more Overall we really like this book.
