Week 6 Term 1 2017

This week we had a celebration! We filled our bead jar and showed how we work as a team!
To celebrate we made "Frog in a Pond." 

 Tariqah made one especially for Mr Byers.It was the highlight of his day.

We decided that Celebrations often involve food. Sometimes we have to be part of the food preparation before we can celebrate. Here are some of the stories we wrote about our celebration...

Week 5 Term 1 2017

 Mrs Finucane really likes it when we bring unusual things to talk about during sharing.
Sahara brought this really unusual tomato from her garden to show us. It looks like a flower! We aren't sure what it would taste like but it is almost too pretty to eat!

It was a busy week at school. We had the portable ice rink set up in the Rec Centre and the PTA supported the children and allowed them to have a try during the week. Room 7 and 8 had their turn on Wednesday. We had a lot of fun although we fell over a lot!

Then on Thursday Stanley Avenue School had a Twilight Gala.
It was an awesome night. The weather was great, the activities were heaps of fun and there was lots of good food. 
Her are a couple of photos from the night ...

Jacob and Weston had a great time! And so did everyone else.

Week 3 Term 1 2017

These awesome students are Room 7 2017. Today is the first time we have all been at school so we finally got our picture up! Welcome to Mereana who started with us on Monday.

Also on Monday we had a visit from the "Fonterra Milk for Schools" representative.

Connor and Bin were part of the group who showed us how to fold our cartons up properly so they can be recycled. 
In Room 7 we usually have milk at lunchtime.

Week 1 Term 1 2017

Welcome to 2017!

Room 7 is full of awesome year 2 students who have come back to school with big smiles and lots of excitement! We are still waiting for a couple of our students to return from holiday so when everyone is here we will post our first class photo.

Next  week we will  be talking about this poem, which is about RESPECT.
It outlines how we like to act in Room 7 and the things we need to do to... 

"Have a happy day!"
Really listen when someone is speaking.
Each person is special.
Say nice things to each other.
Play and work together nicely.
Everyone is part of our classroom team.
Children look after the things in their room.
Today is a great day to use our manners.

Please    Thank You   Excuse me Sorry  Pardon   Yes    No

Junior Team Trip to Hamilton Gardens    WEDNESDAY 23rd NOVEMBER

All children and helpers need to be at school by 8.30 so rolls can be completed and any last minute instructions can be given. We will leave at 9.00 and be home by 3.00.

If your child is unable to come on Wednesday please ring the office before 8.30 .             Our time constraints are tight and we don’t want to waste time ringing home to find children.

The children will need the following items for this visit:
  • ·         All children are to be dressed in correct uniform .
  • ·         They will take their school hats with them.
  • ·         Suitable shoes for walking .
  • ·         Lots of food for morning tea and lunch and a drink (or 2)  of water.
  •           Items such as yoghurt would be better left at home on this day to avoid spillage!
  • ·         Children do not require money on the day and will not be visiting the shop.
  • ·         We will take sunscreen with us but if you can apply sunscreen at home this would be very helpful. We are expecting a very warm day on Wednesday.

If your child requires medication e.g. asthma inhaler, this should be given to the class teacher. The children will not be taking their bags with them as we walk so we cannot find their medication if needed if it is hiding in a school bag.  The teachers will have first aid kits if required.

If you have any questions please talk to your child’s teacher and we will be happy to help.

Week 5 Term 4 2016

This week we started to talk about what our sunflowers might look like when they have grown.
We looked at some photographs and we had to draw what we could see,not just what we thought. This was REALLY hard!

Next Mrs Finucane asked us to draw a really big sunflower head and use the correct colours... Some of us had several attempts but we didn't give up!

Here are our sunflower observational drawings...
