Assembly Item

This Friday Room 8 are performing an assembly item at 9.00am in the hall.  It will be a giggle and a chance for you to see what a day in Room 8 looks like.  All children will be on the stage and some will be sharing their work.  We would love for you to come and watch us on the big stage.

An Email from an All Black!!

Mrs Hinde was very excited when she opened her emails on Friday night because there was an email from Aaron Smith the All Black.  We wrote letters to him and he replied with a great message.

Here is his email:

Hello Nicole

Thank you and your lovely students for your kind letters.  I really enjoyed them and felt that I got to know them!! It was special to learn about their lives and their goals.  It was awesome to see how clever the students are at using the computer and software at such a young age. 

Thank you for your kind words, follow your dreams and don't let anyone hold you back.  Dream BIG!! Dreams come true, look at me!

Kind Regards
Aaron Smith

PS  I do like some veggies!

Special Visitor

Today in Room 8 we had a special visitor come and see us.  It was Miss Taotahi and she brought her daughter Sofia with her.  Sofia is only 7 weeks old and sooo cute with lots of hair.  We can't wait to see them again.

Today a group of six children and Mrs Hinde went and had some fun on the Ipads.  Mrs Mcfadyen taught us how to use a new programme called Popplet.  We will be teaching the other children in Room 8 how to use Popplet as well.  Check out what we made below.

Olympic Poems

We have been looking at an Acrostic Poems about the Olympics and decided we would try to write our own ones.  Check them out:

 O n the edge, ready to dive
 L eaping high as high as the sky
Y  ay I'm first out of eight
M y heart is pounding really fast
P  lease oh please I want gold
I  don't want to come last
C ome on legs not far to go.
S oon it will be over and I can get out.

By Kyra

O ver, over, over jumping the hurdles.
L istening to the crowd cheering me on.
Y ay I might get bronze.
M y legs weave me in and out.
P anting, panting, panting
I'm running hard out.
C oming first
S uper, I've won an Olympic gold.

By Malena

O h yeah! The Olympics have just begun.
L iving the good life, having fun.
Y ay! The starters gun went Kaboom.
M y race for gold has taken off.
P icking up speed very fast.
I'm New Zealand and we are winning.
C heering for me is my parents.  I can't believe I have won.
S o I am number one!

By Maia

O h my goodness I'm ready to run.
L eaping over the hurdles.
Y ay I won gold.
M y legs are getting so sore.  Come on legs not far to go now.
P lease I don't want to come 2nd or 3rd.
I want to come first.
C an I please get gold legs.
S ame as always, I got gold.

By Rosie
