The Jumpshot for 2018

Every year Whaea Sally has been taking "jump shots" of Room 2 for our blog page and this year we were allowed to jump from the side of the pool.
Whaea Sally asked us to climb up and jump off a few times so she could take the best shot, but we weren't complaining about that.

Have you had a jump shot before? If you have - where was it?

Our first assembly for 2018

Today Room 2 had their first assembly for 2018 so it was a very busy week for us.  We continued with our regular programme and dedicated our afternoons for assembly practice.   We had to practice our Ti Rakau, the Duffy song with the actions and we also had to practise speaking in the microphone properly.  We also decided to put together a video about using your WITS when someone is bothering you.  Whaea Sally taught us about WITS earlier this year and Elgregoe, the magician came to school to teach it as well.

Here is our video about using your WITS, we hope you enjoy.

Starting the year as Class of the Week!!

Welcome to Room 2 2018

We are 3 weeks into the school and we were very excited to find out that we were chosen as class of the week.  Room 5 & 6 chose us because we:
  • we displaying the 3 R's in assembly.
  • sitting quietly during taumata.
We are very lucky to have a free lunch time swim and we cannot wait because it is very hot up here in the far north.  We also have the hard choice of choosing the class of the week for week 4.

Dear Room 2 - 2017

Dear Students of Room 2

Yay! Today is the final school assembly and your last school day for 2017.
What a fantastic year it has been for you all too. Today some of you have received some 
well-deserved  prizes for all of your hard work and effort throughout this year.  However all of you should be so proud of yourselves and all you have accomplished this year.

Firstly, you have pulled off some amazing assemblies, you have created laughter from your humorous skits and funny jokes.  You have wowed your audience with your singing.  And you have presented some pretty impressive animations and movies.  

Secondly, You have stepped up and took on our roles for Taumata, Absentee Runner and School Patrol. You have worn our school colours and represented Kawakawa Primary School for Ripper Rugby, Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics.  You have shown self discipline in our syndicate kapa haka and you have been selected for class of the week more than once.

Finally, I am amazed at how you all have progressed in your learning. I have seen every one of you blossom in class, whether it was for Reading, Writing, Maths, P.E, Art, Topic. Thank you Room 2 for trying to be the best that you can be.  Good luck to those of you who are doing the Summer Learning Journey, I am looking forward to seeing your blog posts and I am crossing my fingers that one of you wins a prize.

Have a fun-filled holiday and thank you Room 2 for making my 2017 a great one.

Yours sincerely,  Whaea Sally

Project Put ups at the KEN 2017 Movie Night

While most of us in Room 2 were having the time of our lives at our Marsden Bay Camp, our class movie for the 2017 KEN Movie Night was being showcased at Northland College in Kaikohe. 
This short film was based around people who have experienced "put downs."  
Our class chose 3 of our students and decided to treat them to something very special.  
Have a look below. 

Thank you to Tunisia and Jacqui who went and introduced our movie at Northland College.  
We knew you were very nervous at the time and we are so proud of you both.

Hooray! We were chosen as class of the week again.  Thank you so much to Room 1 and Mrs Norman for choosing our class this week.  Whaea Sally was so proud of us and gave us a little free time as a reward.

Next week we will be looking for the best class who:
(1) Shows respect and sings proudly in Taumata,
(2) Takes pride in our school by keeping it clean, and
(3) Shows respect and encouragement in next week's assembly.
