Super Hero Stories

Watch or listen to some Super Hero stories being read out loud.   These might give you some inspiration for your own stories for the Super Hero Competition.  

CRT - Kia Ora Rm 19.      Let the games begin      19/8/20

I hope you are all doing well during this lock down. Unfortunately we will not get the chance to catch up today for CRT so instead Mr Moiho and myself have decided to put forward a challenge for your class. Your class will be challenging Rm 10 in a handstand challenge. When we are back at school we will get together and see who can do the longest handstand. If you think you can master this, then you may just win the challenge for your class. If you can make a video and send it to your teacher even better: Check the video below for details.

Happy Birthday!

WOW!  It was super great to see so many of you at today's meeting! 

Keep emailing me and sharing evidence of your work.  

The information on the Travelwise Challenge is below the picture. 

Information on Travelwise Challenge from Auckland Transport

Auckland Transport have been working on a range of Travelwise and Walking School Bus Challenges that can done during lockdown by students and can be incorporated into your classroom programmes. These challenges can be done via the GooseChase App. The great thing about these challenges is that it also involves parents as well who can support their children in completing these challenges.


The GooseChase App allows students to complete missions. We will keep uploading family-friendly virtual missions to complete, guaranteed to keep children (young and old) active and occupied while at home.

 It’s easy as to get started: 

1.       Search for and download the free GooseChase app in the app store (Android and iOS).

2.       Open the app and either play as a guest or sign up for a new account.

3.       Join the game by searching for ‘Travelwise Challenge’. Join as a family team (must play with your same household/bubble).

4.       After joining, you will be taken straight to the mission list, so get playing!

Great to see many of you at our online meetings.  

As a group, we agreed that while we are at Level 3 our meetings will be at 11:30am and 1:30pm.  Check your school emails for the links to the meetings.  

Workwise, your first priority is to help out your families. 

If you have done that and are are looking for other work to do, check out the Distance Learning Activities page of this website or check the Daily Plans (in your Google Drive) or work on some activities in your Ministry Workbooks.  If you have any questions about this, we can discuss them at our Class Meets.  

Keep safe

Look into our eyes.....

We tried a game of hangman today using the Google Jamboard app.  If you want to give it a go, go into your Drive or Gmail.  Find the 9 squares (usually at the top right of your screen).  Click on those and scroll down until you find Jamboard.  It's a virtual white board.  

Alphabet Search

These are all the things Helios found in his house for each letter of the alphabet.  Can you figure out what each of the items are?

Items for A B C D E F
Item for G (clue: it's what he's looking through to see the lawn)
Items for H I J K
Items for L M N O P
Items for Q R S T U V
Clue for Q - invisible but everyone is doing it.
Items for W X Y Z
(X is xbox but he couldn't show it).

Scroll to the bottom of this page for the answers.

Thank you for all the work you have been sharing, Room 19. 

Keep sending those pictures in.  

Thank you to Darrell, Kimball, Jahzara and Helios for sharing photos and videos of some of the amazing things they have been doing with their families.  Thank you to the rest of you for emailing me what you have been doing.

It's been fun catching up with some of you via Google Hangouts Meet to day and yesterday.  We'll be trying to meet online at 11:30 am Monday to Friday. Hope to see more of you at Monday's meeting.

If you were at today's meeting, you'll remember that Catalima brought me a mouse just before the meeting started.  I can now update you that Quintana, Catalima and I caught the mouse and it was safely released into the reserve behind the house.  

If you have received your education packs from the Ministry of Education, maybe try reading a book - or read a book to a younger person in your bubble.  If there is anything in the packs that you want to do but you are finding a little bit difficult, bring it to Monday's online meeting and we'll figure out a way to work on it together.  If you want, you can email a picture of it to me and I can figure out a way to help you.

The most important thing to remember is to be safe, BE KIND and have fun with the people in your bubble. 

Hi Room 19!

I hope you are all keeping well during the Covid-19 lock down.   

If you have access to a device, log into your school Gmail accounts and send me a message to say hi.  Tell me who is in your bubble and who you have helped since school closed.  Email me and let me know what you did and how it went.  If you can, include a picture. I would love to see that too. 

My email address is emilyf@flatbush.school.nz 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Keep safe and remember to be kind.
