Having Fun reading dual language texts in Room 9

In Room 9, we have been learning to read book in our home language. Home Language is very precious to all of us and we feel acknowledged when we read books in our own language. We also had a go at reading other language texts we created because we have children from other cultures in our class.

Room 9 trip to the Auckland Zoo

On 31 July we went a trip to the Auckland Zoo to learn about animals and bugs. We were lucky to go for free as we won a free trip to the zoo for learning about bugs and sending our learning to the Zoo. We had an awesome time going to the zoo and learning about bugs at the bug lab and looking at various animals.

Room 9 Art work

We have been looking at Filipe Tohi's art work patterns and using his model for our art work. We used straight lines and shapes. We first had a go at drawing lines and shapes using pencils. Then we chose contrasting colours to colour in the shapes. We were learning about contrasting colours when we did this activity.
