ICT

The Warriors are lucky to be a 'google classroom'. They have been busy learning about google classroom, google docs and google slides. Every child can access their personal google drive at home (just google search 'google drive' and enter login details). Take some time to explore this together and look at some of the work they have done.

 This week they will be developing a Code of Conduct for digital learning in teams. These ideas will then be submitted to the PB4L team to be considered for use across the school!

School Kit

Room 26 Warriors finished their 'School Kit' postcards this week and sent them off to be received by another class in Aotearoa. When they were put together they made a beautiful piece of art!


We also finished or found poem which tells our buddy class a little bit about us!


A metaphor poem was constructed by each student and published on a postcard. Have a look in your child's writing book or check out our writing display to see your child's work!

Here is an AMAZING example. Reece worked so hard on his postcard he even asked to spend his lunch break on it! Ka mau te wehi Reece!

Our Class Recount - By Room 26

Going Shopping at the Supermarket

“Hurry up and get in the car, we’re going to the supermarket” exclaimed my mum. My mum pushed me into the car and there was nothing I could have done to get out of it. It was a rainy Sunday afternoon when my mum, my dad and I drove to PAK’nSAVE to buy some delicious food for the week. I absolutely despised shopping more than I hated cleaning the house!

First, we arrived at PAK’nSAVE and we got a trolley. Our trolley was as rickety as a broken, rusty car. We had to use all of our strength to push the trolley through the bars at the entrance. I felt so embarrassed that I turned as red as a tomato.

After that, we trudged through the aisles. While we shuffled as slowly as an elderly person through the aisles, we searched for the food that was on our list. The rain sounded like a giant was thumping his feet on the roof. As we walked past the food my stomach rumbled, I felt so hungry.

To top it off we strolled to the check out to scan our expensive food and the milk spilt all over the ground. The milk looked like a bird had pooped all over the supermarket floor. I thought to myself, I am having a horrible, terrible, no good, very bad day. As soon as the milk was cleaned up, I rushed to the car ready to go home.

When we got home, I decided that I would never go shopping again. I felt as exhausted as if I had sprinted a marathon.
