Room 6 have been learning about the famous post-impressionist painter, Vincent Van Gogh. Vincent wanted to be known as the painter of sunflowers. Just like other painters working at the time, Vincent made flower still lines. After practicing with different flowers, he chose a specific variety, the sunflower. His fellow painters thought that sunflowers were perhaps somewhat corse and unrefined, but this is exactly what Vincent liked. Here are Room 6s amazing renditions of Vincent Van Gogh Sunflowers.
Today Room 6 wore pink to school to bring awareness to bullying.
Pink Shirt Day is about working together to stop bullying by celebrating diversity and promoting kindness and inclusiveness.
It’s about creating a community where all people feel safe, valued and respected, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, religion or cultural background.
Room six have been learning to give each other feedback and feed-forward on their writing. This helps encourage them to take ownership of their learning. Today they read their writing to a buddy, who identified two things they did well and one ‘work on’……two stars and a wish! Here they are in action….
Since lots of students are at home isolating, Pukeko have been joining up this week to do Maths together. We have been doing STEM challenges including building the highest tower out of newspaper. Here we are in action!
Eden sent in a picture of her Lego creations! Thanks Eden, we can’t wait to see you back at school again too!
“I built a jungle out of Lego the monkey is hanging upside down with his banana and the baby rabbit is with the mummy rabbit and they also have a pool when it gets hot And a slide when it gets boring and when it rains the tent will keep them dry can’t wait to get back to school next week from Eden”
As most of you know, Mrs Corrigan has just returned to school after having to isolate for ten days! During that time, Room 6 students at school have been working alongside the other Pukeko classes. Here are some photos of what those at home and school have been getting up to! Make sure you send in pictures of your isolation adventures to go on the Week 7 post!
Last week Room 6 conducted a survey to determine how many of each colour come in a bag of Macey’s Lollipops. The students created their own individual tally chart, and as a class we analysed tha data to determine what colour was the most common. The students didn’t even realise they were learning maths!
Room 6 has made a fantastic start to the year! We have been busy establishing our class expectations and preparing for a year of hard mahi and setting ourselves up for success.
Wearing masks (for Year 4s) and adjusting to the new protocols set by the government has been a challenge for the students in our class, but they have risen to this wonderfully. Well done!
More details about Home Learning will be coming home with the students in the coming days as well as a text with Mrs Corrigans’ contact details, should you want to get in touch.
This slideshow has been share with everyone in Room 6. You will find it under your shared folder. I wonder what Mrs Roskam’s is?
To hear it, you will need to find the slide show, make a copy and have a listen.
