Happy Mothers Day!

A big Happy Mothers Day to all our lovely Mothers in Room 12. I hope you all enjoyed your cards. 

Ice Cream Fun

For Reading, Room 12 got to make an eatable worm garden as we all read a story about worms. It was super fun and so yum. Check out our photos!

Beat the clock

Room 12 love beating the clock. We managed to pass the ball to every student in only 1:08sec. 

We can't wait to beat our record! 


Room 12 are so lucky to be reading and studying the book Matilda. We are so excited that we seem to find it hard to put the book down. 

Book Review: 

This story is, quite simply, Roald Dahl at his best. Opening the cover to find the slightly tattered pages filled with uncomplicated illustrations, I am instantly transported back to my childhood. I can picture the places I sat to read this story, reacquaint myself with the feelings of comfort, inspiration and amusement I experienced whenever I read it. It is one of my all-time favourites.
In this book, Matilda discovers her love of books and by the age of three, has taught herself to read. At four she has read all the children’s stories in the library. She is oblivious to her brilliance and her parents are less than encouraging. “What’s wrong with the telly, for heaven’s sake?” her father demands. 

This story is beautifully heartwarming; a surprising mix of humour, adventure and mystery. And, as with any Dahl story, Matilda provides a strong message to children: you can do it.

Our last Netball session.

During our last Netball session we got to play a game of netball. It was 5 on 5 and we thought this was lots of fun. Miss M noticed us defending and attacking and we were able to get the ball down to each end of the court to attempt scoring a goal. 

Well done Room 12. Thanks to those who helped teach us the awesome skills we learnt and the teachers who organised it. 

April Fools Joke

Miss M tricked us. Better luck next time Room 12.

Special Treat

We have started reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory during Reading. 
 However, when Miss M went to get the book from the library we didn't have any spare copies so Mrs Fothergill kindly lent us her beloved book that she read to her first class before Miss M was even born. 
She was kind enough to come in and read a couple of chapters to us. She also told us that Roald Dahl wrote to her and her class. How lucky is she!!!!!!! 

Thanks Miss Fothergill! 
We just love this book. It is fabulous. 


Warming up is very important. Here is us warming up before we got to practice our shooting skills.

Time for some us to practice goal shooting. 

Check out who scored a goal..... 

 Putting all of our skills to the test.

Sharing time.

In Maori we are learning about Myths and Legends. Zoe kindly shared this Patu with us. Thanks :) 


Miss M helped us practise our netball throws. Check it out! 


We are so engaged during our Writing. Look how eager we are to share our work. Here are some of our Haiku Poems. 

The beach is so hot!
The sand is soft like a bear.
The water is cold.

Wow we scored a try!
Come on do you want to win?
Come on let's go boys!

Reading contains books.
Reading is comprehension.
We enjoy reading!

I saw the hot sand.
I couldn't resist myself!
Even the cool breeze.

I am the coolest.
I like to learn about Math.
I am really smart!

Dog Day at school

The teachers got to bring there dogs into school and the students loved it. We meet lot of dogs including Miss M's dogs Bella and Sofie. Sofie has the short white tale and Bella has the big white tail. Can you tell them a part?
