Jelly Bean's Music Programme

For the first 5 weeks of term 4  we have the 'Jelly Bean Music Programme' coming into our school to take us for some hands on music lessons.

Room 14 has already had a chance to play drums, triangles, tambourines, recorder and the glockenspiel. We have been learning about rhythm and how to keep a beat.

We are enjoying being able to play with the instruments and get some fun hands on time.

Here are a few photos from our lessons so far!

Duffy Show!!

Today Room 14 and the other IA and HF classrooms went to the hall to watch the Duffy show. Their names were Olive, Siena and Bob!

It was so much fun, because they dressed up as different characters from the stories. They dressed up like Harry Potter, Cleopatra, and had Dinosaurs and snakes to give us a shock! They were really funny and made us laugh a lot.

The show talked about reading and how important it is for us so we can learn about lots of different things. We have to use our imagination while we are reading books with no pictures. We can write down all our crazy ideas and make them into stories.

Here are some photos of the show!

On Thursday 10th September, Rowandale School had a Park and Walk day. This is to keep us fit and healthy and also teach our children how to be safe when walking to and from school.

We had lots of people meet us at the park and the church. It got very wet while we were walking but we all kept smiling. When we got to school we all got to have a hot chocolate with a marshmallow.


Here are some photos.

Malo e lelei - Tongan Language Week 2015

This week Room 14 worked hard to make our very own Tapa patterns. We had to use our ruler to make lines of symmetry, and then put in Tongan Patterns to make it look beautiful!

Here is our finished product.
