Ka Kite from Mrs Belt

It is with some sadness that I write my last post for my class blog at Pt England School, as I leave to move closer to family in the Bay of Plenty.  It has been such a privilege to share the past three years with some amazing tamariki and share their learning journey through my class blog.  Though the blog will remain as an archive of their 'amazingness', there will be no new posts and commenting will shortly close.

Thank you for sharing this incredible journey with me via the blog.  It has been a pleasure to share just a small snapshot into my classroom and just a small selection of the thousands of memories I take away with me today.  A huge thank you to all the teachers, children and whanau who have made me SO welcome during my amazing three years at Pt England School - I will miss you all.

Merry Christmas from Room 15

Its been a very busy year with lots of amazing learning happening in Room 15.  We've really enjoyed sharing it with you via our blogs and some of our learners plan to continue blogging over the Christmas period - check out their links on the right hand side of this post.

From all of us in Room 15, we wish you a very happy and healthy holiday season.

Our amazing prizegiving item

Last Thursday during the Junior Prizegiving, Room 15 performed with Room 14.  All our learners worked really hard to learn our item over the preceding weeks and I was totally proud of them all.  For anyone that may have missed our item, check it out below:

Team 3 shared reading and lunch

Today Room 15 joined with the other classes in Term 3 to have a great day.  We started by doing a reading rotation with some invited guests.  Teachers in Team 3 were joined by Mr Burt, Mrs Nua, Mrs Garden, Mrs Clarke and the lovely office ladies to share our favourite books with small groups.  Each group heard from five different teachers and then we returned to our class to share our experiences and blog about it.

After morning tea, we had a Team 3 shared lunch.  A HUGE thanks to all the whanau who provided plates of amazing food which we all really enjoyed sharing.  What an amazing day as we count down to the end of term.

Our Year in Room 15

This week Room 15 have created a book showcasing our Year in Room 15.   We are sharing our book as a movie below or you can view and download from here.

We hope you enjoy reading about the highlights of our year.

Animation Fun

Today Room 15 were using I Can Animate to create some animations.  We had Lego, blocks, animals and plastic people to help us create.

Our finished movies will be posted to our blogs later this week, but check out the creativity as we work on our animations.

Screen Minions

For the last few weeks, Zoe and Precious from Room 15 have been joining a few other learners from Team 3 and doing some screen printing with Mr Vogt.

They have really enjoyed the experience and their creations are amazing!  Check out some photos from their experience.
