Team 2 - Term 2 2019

Science Rotation - WaterScience Rotation - Water
Room 6 is learning all about how things move through water. We have learnt that sugar makes things heavier (so they sink) and lots of other stuff like seeing if things float or not and if a plastic cup can float upside down. Some students in Room 6 are also making games, others doing posters and some doing science projects (like can a paperclip float and testing objects to see if they float or sink). Room 6's next rotation is things moving on land with Angela and then moving in the air with Trish.

Science Rotation - LandScience Rotation - Land
Rm 7 has been working on land movement science. In Room 7 we are doing our activities in groups to do with movement on land. We have 8 groups for different activities. We are learning about friction. We have to make a 6 page slideshow about friction. We have had a lot of fun learning about land movement. We all have worked hard on each activity.


Fire ArtFire Art
Lately Room 8 has been painting fires. We could choose if we wanted to do a friendly fire or an angry fire! We are doing these pictures because we are learning to mix colours and we think this is the best way to do it. Room 8 likes finding out new ways to make art and colours.

Troll StoriesTroll Stories
Room 7 has been working on stories with trolls in them. Angela wanted us to look at a picture that had a troll with a boat in his hand lifting up roofs of houses. We all had to use an exciting hook, middle and end in our stories. We used sound effects or started the story with a question. We had to make it detailed with lots and lots of description about what the troll was doing. We were trying to make Angela really hooked in to our stories. We all worked super hard on them. Some of us are still working, some of us are publishing and some of us are almost done. We are writing these story to complete our writing goals.

Reading LogsReading Logs
Room 8 have been trialling Reading Logs this term because the whole school might have them! Room 8 are very excited to try them and they help us to remember to read every night. They are very cool because every 25 nights of reading you get a sticker, but Trish has to give it to you. We are allowed to put small stickers on ourselves.We are on the green reading level which is 7-9. We are the only class that is trialling them because some of us aren't reading most nights! We are really enjoying the Reading Logs not only because we get stickers, but we remember to read almost every night.

On Monday, Wednesday and Friday Team Two goes to Karori Pool and does swimming lessons, run by the Karori instructors. People are either in the main pool split up into two groups. In the pool next to it they're also being split into two groups. Some groups are learning water safety and do stuff like tread water, others are learning basic swimming strokes, and do not do water safety yet. The people in the main pool have to swim a lot longer than the people in the smaller pool. If they know how to swim well the people in the small pool will move up to the main pool. All the school does this but Team Two has their swimming in term two.
