'The Best Day Ever' Swimming with Moko

Moko is a very famous Dolphin that lives on the East Coast of New Zealand near Whakatane. Moko is famous because he swims and plays with the locals. I got to swim with Moko when my family was on holiday there. Please listen to my story. It took a lot of work to put my photos and sound file together. I hope you enjoy it. Frances

Cooperation at Broadlands

At Broadlands School we teach the virtues. On Friday Room 3 had to present the virtue of Cooperation to the school as the new virtue to focus on for two weeks. As a class we decided on making a comedy. We tried and tried to find a Very Big Heavy Box to be a prop in our video but with all our searching we couldn't find one. Have a look to see how we overcame that problem!

Responsibilities

Here we are doing our final ponder over our responsibilities. We had quite a debate about if we should rank the responsibilities according to importance for our display. We decided in the end that they were all very important and didn't need to be ranked.

The 3 R's

Room 3 is back after our summer holiday. Have a look at our class. We have few displays at the moment because its only been 2 days and we have some exciting learning ahead which needs a blank canvas. Watch this space!





This terms theme is Rights, Rules and Responsibilites. We have been reading 'The Tree Hutt Treaty' because it has a lot to do with the 3 R's. It is also connected to a special day in New Zealand called Waitangi Day. Waitangi day is celebrated on 6 February.

We started by writing what helped us to be Happy and Safe in Room 3 http://www.wallwisher.com/wall/happysafe2 Please can you add some of your own ideas to our wall. We would enjoy reading them as your ideas might help us with our ponder over our own Rights, Rules and Responsibilites for our classroom.
