Welcome to Room 2
Welcome to Room 2. We are a group of energetic and dynamic Year 4 & 5 students and our teacher is Mrs Julie Reeve. This year we will be having many amazing learning opportunities and fun along the way! Please visit our page regularly to see what we have been up to!
Treaty of Waitangi
We celebrated the Waitangi Day at the beginning of the Term. In class we spent time learning about why, who and where the Treaty was signed. Our first major piece of writing was a Historical Fictional recount of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. Our focus was on the correct use of punctuation, using our imagination combined with facts learned during Social Studies time.
Raglan Rocky Shore
What a great day we had exploring the Rocky Shore at Whale Bay in February. Room 2 spent time investigating Rocky Shore creatures, writing and recording a report on their chosen creature and creating beautiful artwork.
ANZAC Poem and Art
Many students spent time researching the role their whanau had in either WW1 or WW2 and shared this with the class. Each student wrote a remembrance poppy to put on our class wreath, they also created a poem to include with their artwork. We were also lucky to have Marc Dresser bring his Sunbeam motorbike from WW1 down to school to share its history with the students, definitely a highlight.
Pink Shirt Day
Room 2 students had the opportunity to share their knowledge of Pink shirt Day. Students researched and prepared a presentation which they shared at the school assembly. Each group was responsible for informing other classes about Pink Shirt day, taking photos, collecting koha, delivering promotional material and organising the school Pink Shirt Photo.
