This morning room 19 has been doing origami by making different creations. Some have been making boxes, ninja stars, fidget spinners, glasses and many more things.

Everyone should be proud of their origami creations.

We had a great time doing origami, and we enjoyed folding the paper and doing creases. It was a great experience in room 19.

We made a origami ninja star that opens and closes, we made it by attaching all the bits together.

We think everybody should be really proud of what they put together. Just about everybody made an origami fidget spinner. Ms Leafberg said if you are a beginner to origami, you should start with the basic shapes and go from there.

The Brain Research

Room 19 have been learning about the different parts of the brain and their different functions.  They have then used Thinglink, an ICT tool, to share the research they have done about the brain.

Here are some of the Thinglinks created by room 19 students. Hover over the dots to bring up the brain facts. Also have a look at their personal blogs to see more.

Holiday Recounts

This week room 19 have been learning to write recounts. We wrote about something we did in the holidays. We have focused on using paragraphs for new events.

Here are some of our recounts.


Finally It was time to go to Waihi.  I went with Tyler, Brooklyn, my cousin, Brad, Aunty Julia and my other cousin, Mickala. We went there because we have never been there before.

We started to unpack our stuff from the car, we had a LOT of stuff for one day. I went to my room and dibbeds the top bunk plus I put all my clothes in the room. Then I went to get my scooter.  It was so packed in the car all the clothes and scooters fell on ME. Yeah ME I got hurt.

A few minutes later we ran to the playground. It was a  huge playground, It had a tramp, slide, seesaw, monkey bars, plus a tunnel. We played on the seesaw with my cuzzie Brooklyn.  I jumped on  the tamp, slide, monkey bars and  I had so much fun i stayed there until 4.00. I loved the playground.

It was time to hire the rocket bmx bikes. It was so cool riding them. We rode the bmx bikes to the beach and the bay it was awesome. Then the next day we hired the go karts it was cool.  I went around the camp with Brooklyn, he loved it. Then it was my other cousin  Tyler, he went down the hill and crashed the go kart and it flipped over. Tyler hurt my arm, both knees and my chin. It was sore.

I was so astonished how different it was to all the other campsites in New Zealand. It was awesome. The one thing, all  the other NZ camp sites are less exciting .This was my  favourite camp site in NZ I have been to in my life.

The Pools

In the school holidays I went to the pools with my mum and my sisters. We went there because we were bored sitting at home, but before that i had to get ready.

Eventually, it was time to go to the pools, so we left around 2-3 and we got there at 3.15. After, we made it to the amazing pools, but first we had to get changed into our togs.

Finally,it was time to have some fun, so we took a dip in the pools. It was as cold as ice. My sister and I had races, sadly I lost. Anyway, then we played with the soaking water-gun, I kept on going under the water so I didn’t get shot. I was also swimming around.

Later, we had to go home, but that wasn’t all, before we went home we went Burger King. I ordered a sundae, a drink, large fries and a bk chicken burger. It tasted super delicious. Eventually, we had to go home and take a break.

I had a great experience swimming around in the freezing pools. It’s great exercise and lots of fun too, but my favourite part was the eating.

Easter Fitness

Today we had a fun fitness session based around Easter.  Everyone had to decorate an Easter egg, but there was a catch. In order to draw a decoration, an exercise needed to be completed first.

Everyone had a great time! Here are some photos of us exercising, drawing and some decorated eggs.

Maths Problem Solving

In maths we have been learning to solve change unknown problems.

These are the problems we had to solve:

We worked out that these are the mathematical equations to the problems:
a. 26 + ? = 31
b. 48 + ? = 81
c. 239 + ? = 275
Challenge: 1396 + ? = 1452

Below are our solutions we shared to solving these problems:
