Primary for showing 'whanaugatanga' and hosting Ruapotaka Primary while our
school was getting cleaned. We were well looked after and supported. "Whakawhetai ki a koutou

I am against having a uniform because
we have to wear it every day and it gets stinky. If we wear mufti we can wear whatever we
want. We can wear hoodies and jackets and I could wear my rugby jersey. Your uniform
might get damaged or lost and it will get small too fast. I don’t like the uniform because it’s ugly. I
disagree about wearing the school uniform because it takes too much washing. In
conclusion I think we should wear mufti because we can choose to wear whatever we

Madisyn sharing about her wonderful whanau during ‘show and tell’.
It is important for our students to talk and share their thoughts clearly. In room 6 we do ‘show and tell’ where students get a chance to talk about a special item they have brought from home. Not only does this encourage talk but it can also teach them confidence. In addition every morning Room 6 has oral language whereby they to talk to each other and share their ideas and experiences. I encourage parents to actively communicate with their children keeping in mind we want to improve their oral language skills. We can promote talk around the dinner table and during social outings such as shopping. As a rule of thumb family members should ask open ended questions followed by actively listening. Something as simple as encouraging talk can improve our children’s learning.Example of open-ended questions begin with the following words: why, how, what, describe..., or what do you think about...
First I get my burnt buns and make sure it is really burnt. Then I get one snot patty and put it in the burnt buns. Next I get my old tomatoes that has been outside the fridge for 2 weeks. I get my stinky cheese that is smelly and also the mouldy lettuce and place it in. Then I get my butter with cat snot on it and I spread it on my burnt buns. Finally, I get dog onion with hair in it and I get my snot source and spread it. Now I can eat my yucky burger and I will make sure I eat and talk with my mouth wide open.
Carrots are vegetables. They are healthy for kids. We
can eat carrots cooked or raw.
Carrots are orange, skinny and triangular. It feels hard and smooth to touch. Carrots do not smell like other fruit and vegetables. However if they have been freshly picked they might smell like the earth. Carrots taste sweet and can be eaten cooked or raw.
In conclusion, carrots are cheap and easy to eat. They can be packed as part of our school lunches.
Swimming is very important because you might drown. At my school we learn how to swim at the back
of our school.
I learnt how to float on my back.You have to put your arms out like a star
fish and slowly bend down on your back.Next you just push your tummy up and you will float.I am good at doing arm strokes with a kicking
board.I am not good at back strokes.
In conclusion, schools should have a pool so their students learn
how to swim.
Welcome to Room 6 2016 blog page. This year we have a
dynamic and diverse classroom filled with an exceptional group of energetic

also begun their weekly visits to our school. So far they have keenly
shared their experiences by positively engaging with all our students.
Finally, to all parents and bloggers everywhere we welcome your positive input,
so come along with us as we journey into the 2016 school year.
