Project sharing

 It was great to host so many whanau in R4 today, and last week, to share in our project learning.  The students really enjoyed showing off their learning. 


 


This afternoon we spent some time programming our MBots. We were trying to work together to synchronise them.

Week 10 Term 2 Notices

 It is with great sadness I share the news that Fynn's brother Aidan tragically passed away in an accident last week. Having taught Aidan a few years ago I know what a loss he will be to his friends, family and current school Rotorua Boys High School. Aidan was always cheerful and quick-witted, he was a lovely student who always said hello whenever I met him around town. 

Aidan's funeral will be on Wednesday, I will be attending and know that it would be nice for Fynn to have some support from his friends. If your child would like to attend please let me know so I can make arrangements to transport them. Students who stay at school will be looked after by another teacher. 

We had a class liturgy on Friday where I told the class of this awful news, our class was very caring and kind in their words and thoughts. Our Catholic character definitely shone through. 

Project-Based Learning sharing morning

Tomorrow morning we will be sharing our learning with our whanau. Doors will open from 7:45am -9:00am. There will be some warm breakfast for whanau and we have borrowed the school coffee machine.

Which way?

We have been learning about directional language in R4.  Yesterday some students were using a compass to direct friends along a path to hopefully end up in a place. We were using compass points and stepping out to get there.
