Week 6 Term 4 2020

Joseph Parker, Duffy and the Super Awesome Leaners!

Room 21 is very excited about the visit. At the assembly, Mr Parker has shared how he thinks reading has helped him to learn new words and read contracts and much more in his boxing career. He told us that his favourite books were the Hairy Maclary and Goosebumps series. He also has presented the new books that Duffy gifted to our school library. Thank you Mr Parker and Duffy.

During the assembly we have sang some beautiful songs for our guests.



Thanks to everyone who worked hard to bring this wonderful event to our school.

Kia Ora, everyone! We are now halfway through Term 4. Room 21 learners have been busy with their learning. On Tuesday Week 4, we went to the Vodafone Event Centre to see the Greedy Cat show. We have been reading so many Greedy Cat books at school. It was fun to see the Greedy Cat on the stage instead of on a page. 

Thank you to the people who have gifted us the tickets for the show.

On Friday in week 4, we also had the Duffy Show at school. This time, Duffy and his friend Becks had a very special Coggen pet. 

 Here is a video of the Duffy Song. The three wonderful actors have used New Zealand Sign Language when they were singing.

Kia Ora Super Awesome Learners, how was your weekend? I am sure you had a good time with your family. I have had a great time as well. Guess why? I have been visiting the Auckland Zoo! You must have lots of question marks now do you? How did I visit the zoo when Auckland is in lockdown? Well, the Auckland Zoo has launched its first webcam system that everyone can visit the lovely animals online all over the world now. You can click here to see these amazing animals, too! You can write a little description of the animals you were looking at. What do they look like, what colours are they, what were they doing, and what kind of enclosure they live in. If you can ask someone in your family to email me your writing and I will put them on this page.


CRT - Kia Ora Rm 21.      Let the games begin      27/8/20

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 22 in the squats challenge. When we are back at school we will get together and see who can do the most squats in 1 minute. 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.


Our School is also running a writing competition as part of the book week celebration, check this out!

Here are some superhero stories you can get ideas from.

For Week 6 Distance Learning, you can choose to do 3-5 activities from your learning packs. You can also carry on with the learning activities I posted in Week 5. Alternatively, you can try to make some masks at home. I know Miss Russell has posted some wonderful instructions on how to make a beautiful mask at home. You can to Room 5's class page to see how she made her ones. There are many other easy ways to make masks. This picture shows you how to make one out of an old T-shirt and rubber bands.



Happy learning!

Literacy:

Read at least 30 minutes every day.  you can break it into two 15 minutes sessions. One in the morning, one after lunch. Your Duffy books, the newspapers, mum's recipes, the books from the Learning Packs are all great reading resources. 

After your reading, you can think about questions like who is in the story, what happened in the story, where did it take place. Try to tell another person what you have read in order.

You can also learn the words from your word cards following the time table below.

Flat  School was celebrating the Cook Island Language Week this week. Our wonderful Cook Island team has been working very hard to organise many fun activities at school. Here are some of the photos of Room 21 been part of this celebration.



We had lots of fun celebrating Cook Island Language Week!

In the past 3 weeks, we have been learning about measuring length. We measured our furniture using interlock blocks and iceblock sticks. We also used our arms, feet, and hands to measure the length of our tables, the mat, and our classroom. At last, we used our rulers to measure our pencils and rubbers and many more! Can you tell how many children were there to measure the length of our classroom?



In order to see how the light and heat help plants to grow so that the lives on Earth can live, we planted some cauliflower, spring onion, and radish seeds on Tuesday. 



On Friday, we have found two tiny little seedlings! How exciting! Is there going to be more when we come back after the weekend? We will have to wait and see. Have an awesome weekend!

Kia Ora Room 21 whanau, 

I hope you had a great Mother's Day weekend. This week the government will announce when New Zealand will enter Alert Level 2. This means we have all been doing a fantastic job fighting the Covid-19 virus and hopefully, we will be able to meet everyone at school soon. Please keep doing all the good work, wash your hands, and keep the correct social distance. 

Week 5 we will continue our Distance Learning program. Click the link to find the Week 5 DL Activities. You can find some very interesting books read by our awesome Flat Bush School teachers and staff here. Or the books related to your learning pack activities here. Don't forget to use the chalks or crayons to make wonderful drawings/decorations for your driveway. 

There are two more activities below.

1. Once upon a time, there was a frog. He lived in a well. All he can see was the round piece of sky above the well. Occasionally, there might be a few birds flew pass the piece of sky. He was very lonely. One day, the frog wondered, what does it look like outside the well. Is it going to be as dark as here? Or is there more food? Or friends? The best way to find out is to climb up the wall to get out of the well. So he started climbing. The well is 12 meters high and the wall of the well is very slippery. Each day the frog climbed 3 meters but slipped down 2 meters. He did not give up! Could you please find out how many days did the frog use to get out of the well? 

2. Make a list of things you want to do with your friends when you come back to school. Or think about some interesting things you did when you were at home.


Last week, Kura's brother Antonio and William have sent me some photos. Let's take a look at what Kura was doing at home.


Good work Kura!

Don't forget to send your photos or work to cissyh@flatbus.school.nz 

Happy learning!

Week 4 Term 2 2020

Friday 8 May 2020

Kia Ora Room 21! Time flies! It's Friday already. How did you go with your week 4 activities? Have you tried the Dress up game? How about reading the books from your learning pack? Or making a Mother's Day card? I'm sure you must have done some great fun learning activities at home。 Wanted more? Here we go!

Making jelly soap!

Ingredients:

food colouring (optional)

1/2 cup of body wash or dish wash or hand wash liquid

1 cup of boiling water (please be careful with this and ask an adult to help you)

2 heaped tsp gelatin powder

Instructions:

1. Add 1 cup of boiling water and the gelatin powder in a large bowl and mix well. BE CAREFUL! The water is very hot so you will need an adult to help you.

2. Pour the liquid soap into the bowl and stir to mix.

3. Add food colouring (optional)

4. Pour the mix liquid into a container. It can be muffin cases, cupcake molds, a takeaway container, or you can just leave it in the bowl.

5. Wait till the liquid cools and put it in your fridge until it sets.

6. Take the soap out of the molds and wash your hands with it! If you are using the bowl or a large container, cut it into the size and shapes you like. 

It will be a good idea to make a few colourful body wash jelly and shampoo jelly as a Mother's Day gift.

Let me know if you have tried this! 

Stay Safe!

Welcome to Week 4! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Have you been trying to play the string games? How did you go with your handwriting practice? Now we are in May, the 5th month of the year. It is a bit cold and wet to go outside so this week you can do some indoor activities. Below are two ideas you can try at home.

1. Dress up!

Equipment:

--Things in your bedroom and wardrobe. E.g, your own clothes, socks, towels, pillowcases, bedsheets, etc

--A clock or a timer

--Pen and paper

Instruction:

--Write the name of a job or animal (nouns) on a small piece of paper. E.g. doctor, firefighter, tiger, etc. Fold the paper so you can't see the words. Put them into a container.

--Draw a piece of paper out of the container. Check what word is on your paper.

--Now you have 10 minutes to use the things in your bedroom to create an outfit that matches your word.

--Let your audience guess what or who you are. 

--Take some photos of your fashion show and send them to me!

You can also invite more family members to play and make this game a family competition. 

2. Dance Party!

Turn on the radio or turn the music Channel on TV. Have a dance party in your bedroom or in the living room. Try some new dance moves and see who got the best ones!

Have fun learning!

Wednesday 29 April 2020

On Tuesday this week, the junior school teachers have been working very hard to put a new learning pack together for your Distance Learning program. Make sure you choose one or two activities to do each day. Below are some extra activities you can do at home.

1. Te Ao Kori-Whai (String Games). You can play this game by yourself or with a partner.

         Equipment- one piece of string (or cotton, wool, thin ribbon)

2. Handwriting. Practice writing the alphabet letters (both capital letters and lower case letters) and numbers in the air and then on a piece of paper. Make sure you form the letters and numbers correctly and leave a finger space between the letters/numbers. Think about the size of your letters, have you made it too small or too big?

If you can, ask someone to take photos of you learning at home or photos of your work. Then email them to: cissyh@flatbush.school.nz

Week 1 Term 1 2020

Monday 13 April 2020

Kia Ora! The Super Awesome Learners and your wonderful Whanau.

Welcome to Term 2, 2020. This is Mrs. Zhao. I hope you are all well and happy. 

Term 1 was a busy and short term. We have had a few changes to our class. First, we moved from the lovely CSI to the beautiful new classroom. Then we joined the Junior School and became a Year 2 class. 

In week 8, the nationwide lockdown has been announced by the government and our school was closed and we all have to stay home in our bubbles since then. You probably wondering what Mrs. Zhao is doing within her bubble. Well, there are 7 members in our family. My two children and their grandparents, Mr. Zhao, meself and Da Tou (our family cat). We have been doing lots of cooking, cleaning, and gardening. Of course, the two little ones have been doing some learning at home like you guys. Sometimes Mr. Zhao and I would go for a long walk and try to count the Teddy Bears. If you have a chance to go for a walk around your block, don't forget to count how many Teddy Bears you can spot. Here are the ones from our window. We also played some old fashioned games that I used to play when I was little. It was long before the digital devices were invented. Guess what? My kids love them more than iPad and TV! Maybe you can ask the adults in your bubble what they have played when they were at your age. They may teach you, too. We have also made some Easter Eggs for our Egg Hunt. Check them out! Term 2 will start on the 15th of April. It is important for our young ones to keep learning. There will be some useful tips on our school website and as well as on this class page to help our learners to maintain their learning. We are trying our best to keep it simple and fun. There are many ways you can help to keep your kids learning at home. The Ministry of Education has sent out some educational resources to homes to support our children's home learning. Also, the Papa Kāinga TV and Māori Television will start education programme broadcasting for early learners and students (Years 1–10) from 9am on Wednesday 15 April. Papa Kāinga TV will be shown, free to air, on TVNZ channel 2+1 and on TVNZ on Demand, as well as on Sky Channel 502. It will run from 9am to 3pm on school days with programming for children and young people aged 0 to 15, as well as for parents. Home Learning TV will initially be on air for one month – with provision to extend beyond that depending on the COVID-19 situation.

Please don't feel you have to be a full-time teacher for your Tamariki. Remember, keep it simple and fun. Use the resources you have at home. Here are some activities you can start with your tamariki this week.

1. Draw a picture of the bubble they are in and label the name of each person.

2. Plan a meal and make it with an adult. They can do some maths problem solving while making it, e.g. calculate the amount of each ingredient, measure the ingredients, record the cooking time. In the end, draw a picture or take a photo of the meal.

3. Play some games with someone in your bubble. You can choose to play a board game, or Simon Says, or design your very own fun games.

4. Do some physical activities at home. This will help you to keep fit. You can find more information from the Physical Activity page.

If you have any questions, please email me at cissyh@flatbush.school.nz, feel free to let the children email me their home learning stories, tell me their family bubble, photos, and even just to say hi!

Keep learning. Stay safe and be strong! Miss you all!
