The Gardener's Maze

After reading The Gardener's maze as a class, Room 7 drew pictures of their own maze and wrote about them. The fabulous VJ then created his own maze out of blocks! Check it out!! 

This isn't the most recent photo from Term One, but this is such a beautiful photo it HAS to be shared.. 

This photo has perfectly captured the notion of Tuakana Teina, that Room 7 is working hard to embrace as part of our day to day learning. 

Amazing things happen when the high frequency word cards come out! :P 
Ka pai Tristan and Harkirat!

M is for Monkey!
Look at the monkeys we made with Room 8- our neighbouring classroom. 
We are so lucky to have such wonderful neighbours.

We won't be announcing our celebration plans just yet.. But rather that one of the Room 7 superstars won the year 1 student of the term award!! 

Well done Habeebah! All of us in Room 7 are very proud, and super lucky to have you in our class.

Excitement is in the air

The Room 7 and Room 8 teachers have got their thinking hats on this week.. busy gathering ideas for the last day of term! 

We believe it is important to celebrate our successes as a team, and there is nothing better than having a celebration with our buddy class! :D 

Stay tuned to find out what we get up to! Miss Sickels is feeling as excited as Spongebob is in this picture!
