Happy Easter

Hi Room 16,
I hope you are enjoying your holidays and staying safe. I saw the movie 'Rio' the other night, so cute, you would all love it!  I thought I'd post this picture I took the other morning when I walked out of my back gate. It really suits the Easter Season - eggs and chicks!
I hope you all have a happy Easter weekend.
Love Mrs Boric

Character Descriptions

Hi there Room 16,
Hope your holidays have started well and you're not missing school too much! How about having a go at writing a few character descriptions while you are away. Here are some points on how to write them.
You could write one for your Mum, Dad, sister, brother, cousin, Nana, Grandad, friend or neighbour.
Bring it to school on the first day back and you can share it with the class.

Don't forget to include some similes and direct speech!

Intro - catchy opening sentence, who you are writing about
First paragraph - What the character looks like - describing words, face, hair, height, eyes, lips teeth, smile, skin
Second paragraph - The characters personality, how they treat others, direct speech
Third paragraph - The characters interests and hobbies, what they like/dislike, info about their family, favourite things to do
Fourth paragraph - what makes them special to you, a time you spent together
Conclusion - a final sentence that says your thoughts about the character

Measuring Madness

Room 16 have been finding out about all different types of measurement so that we can be prepared for our Masterchef Cooking Challenge.

We made fresh fruit juice using oranges, apples and lemons. We took measurements to see how much juice we managed to get out. Some fruits had lots of juice and others we had to really twist and turn to get some out.
We got to drink it at the end which we all enjoyed!

Funky Feet Day

Huia wore their funky feet to school on Friday. We also got together as a pod and made MASSIVE shoes that we collaged - gumboots, slippers, jandals and running shoes. This was to go with our pod motto - Putting Our Best Foot Forward! It was a fabulous day and the teachers were so impressed with all the values the children were showing as they worked together. Awesome effort Huia!
