Class Award 2013

This Friday we got the class award. We have been waiting a long time to get this. When a class gets this award there is always a reason why they got it. It can be something like using technology wisely or using a wide range of equipment in new ways or anything along these lines. We got the award for showing reflection by using qr codes. Here are some photos of us.

Taylor rose: I am so joyful getting the class award and i have been waiting for a very long time
Rhys: I am also happy as we actually did do a lot of making of qr codes and I really think we deserved it.
Shreeya: Again I am also delighted getting this award as I always wanted a photo with the class award.

To catch up on all of the amazing learning we do at Vardon School and specifically room 14 keep on regularly coming on our blog. We hope you enjoyed my post on how we got the class award.

senior syndicate semi finals

Today was semi speech finals day. All the children from the syndicate that got through shared their speech in front of the whole syndicate. The children from our class were alannah , Ella, Ben and Emerson. Everything went well and no one was nervous well everyone was nervous but the didn't show it. The semi finalist have just gone to the staff room to find out who got into the finals. hey this goes with the song "it's the final countdown".
Only very few people get to go through to the finals and it would be absolute privilege to be able to get through. Last year Edward smith and Karyna watt got through to the finals.Edward came 2nd out of all of the finalists. When we find out who got through we will post that news.

Rippa Rugby

Yesterday we went out to the field and played Rippa Rugby with Mike from Sport Waikato and room 14. 
Here are some of the things that we learnt:

I learnt that when you throw the ball you leave your hands out (your hands follow through) Ella
You have to make a W shape with your hands so your team mates know where to aim the ball when passing to you (Rhys)
You have to pass the ball behind you, not in front (Chakyla)

we enjoyed:

I enjoyed playing the game (Alex)
I enjoyed the game and the warm ups we did (Victoria)
I enjoyed playing the game and the warm ups when we had to pass the ball behind each other. (Mckaia)

Class Speeches

Today we had to present our speeches to the class.  We were all very nervous, but each of us were brave and got up and delivered what we had researched and found out to do with either our own culture and identity or one we had researched.  Mrs Gunn was extremely proud of all of us!!

Here are some photos of some of us delieverying our speeches:


Room 14's Cultural Quilt

Last week we each put together our cultural square for room 14's cultural quilt. On the quilt square we had to share information about our family’s cultural identity - things about the country we are from, traditions we have, music and art we love and our favourite foods.  We then put these all together to make our class quilt.  We think it looks really great!  We have also recorded all of this information into the website ‘Vocaroo’ and turned this into a QR code.  Come in sometime and scan our codes to hear us talk about our family identity!
