Magical Island

Today before lunch we did this Team Building game and it was where you need to work as a team and try not to touch the grass or then the shark will attack you. Mrs Gunn made it more smaller so it could be a challenge for us. At start it was easy then it become harder and harder. We worked as a team so we could stay on the magical Island. Here are some photos.

Community Silent Card Shuffle

Today we started to look wider than our class with our big idea of 'Community'.  Today Mrs Gunn gave us a pack of cards with different things written on them.  We discovered that there were 5 cards that were the headings - Sport, School, Hospital, Theatre and Digital.  We then discovered that the other cards had roles/jobs that each of these communities has.  We had to silent sort these into the different communities.  It was really hard to do this without talking, but we managed to do it pretty successfully, and learnt some new words along the way.  Come into room 14 sometime to see the results!

Our next step is to start think about which communities we and our families belong to, and why it is so important to belong to different communities.

Team building and building our class culture

Today in room 14 we did a silent card shuffle during our community circle.  A silent card shuffle is hard because you are not allowed to talk during the activity.  We had to sort some words and pictures into groups that we thought they went with, and then discuss the words that we wanted our class to be.  These were things like 'kind, care, share, and friend.

check out the photos of us doing this below:

Green Fingers for 2014

It was a tough decision for George, Loren and Mrs Gunn, but they have selected two new members for the Green Fingers Club.  For 2014 we welcome Rhiannon and Taylor-Rose.  This week they will be meeting with Mrs Boyce to review how the garden has fared over Summer (not very well L), and start planning out what we will plant for this year.  Keep popping back to our blog to see the changes we have made and how our garden is coming along!

The Winter Games 2014

Team building in Room 14 2014!

In room 14 we are learning about the benefits of working as a team and becoming a strong community.  On Friday Mrs Gunn set us a challenge to help us grow our team building skills.  She gave us all a red puzzle piece and asked us to work as a team to complete the puzzle.  If we were successful, we would have worked well as a team!

It was quite tricky, and we had to work really hard, but eventually were able to finish.  The puzzle made a great big juicy looking red apple.  Mrs Gunn said that our classroom is like the puzzle.  If we can work together as a team to support our community then our ‘puzzle’ will be our learning!

Next week we will use what we have learnt to create our class treaty.  We will post more about this when we have created it!
