What a busy and exciting start to the term we have had.
In week 3 we had a very successful Grandparent's Day. How wonderful to see so many Grandparents come and be part of our junior school singing assembly and visiting the classrooms.
As part of our work leading up to Grandparent's Day the children in room 3 wrote about what makes their Grandparents special.  Here are some examples:

Last Friday room 3 had a visit from a group of Japanese students. After a waiata the Japanese students showed us how to make a range of origami objects. At the end we each sung our National Anthems.

Room 3 have been training hard for the runathon and the cross-country, focusing on keeping a steady pace and building up our stamina.

As part of our Inquiry topic this term we are learning about three New Zealand authors: Jenny Hessell, Juliette MacGiver and Joy Watson. We look forward to sharing some of our topic work with you later in the term.
We are very priviledged to have Matua Tim, a Masters of Teaching and Learning student in our classroom this term. Welcome Tim and we are all enjoying having you in room 3.
