Room 9's Rainforest

As we begin our learning about rainforests Room 9 are turning their classroom into a tropical jungle, complete with rainforest creatures.  Can you spot them among the vines?

Madd Messenger

The Madd Messenger visited our school once more.  Today's message encouraged us to make good choices for ourselves.  
We all have choices and it's up to us to make sure they are positive ones!

We were all excited to see the superhero speed art creation once more!

Sharing About Ourselves

As we begin Term 3 Room 9 decided to start up class reporters once again. 
Joseph, Sylvia and Isabell brought some items from home to share with Room 9.  Family photos were common throughout.  Joseph also had some creative art work for us to look at, Sylvia had her camera which takes and prints photos instantly and Isabell who had recently been to Rainbows End also had her log flume snapshot!

Demonstrations and Endurance

The last day of term 2, the dark rain clouds waited behind Mt Wellington while Ruapotaka students were out on the court showing off their skipping skills.  
Both the juniors and the seniors displayed their endurance during their skip-offs, and the seniors displayed some of the more difficult moves they have been working on.  

Awesome work everyone!

Term 2 Achievements

Room 9 have all worked to improve their skipping skills during term 2.  Dakbai showed perseverance and hard work as he practiced his double-unders.  Well done Dakbai and all of Room 9 for increasing your fitness and skipping skills!

Who do these lucky feet belong to?

Mika was awarded these lucky red socks on the last Friday of term 2.  Red Sock day represents spirit and leadership and Mika does his best to display these qualities.  

Well done!

Blog Commenting

As part of our cybersmart journey we are learning to create quality blog comments.  
We have been discussing what a quality comment should include and with the help of Mrs Grant have come up with some criteria to help us.  Using our criteria, we are practicing writing quality comments and are publishing them onto interesting blog posts we find together.

You can find the tips Room 9 and Mrs Grant created together here.

A Grade Homework Certificates

Congratulations to these students who have been consistent in the completion and quality of their homework during term 2!

Keep up the great work.
