Welcome to Room 7's blog for 2018. We are an energetic Year 5 and 6 class and our teacher is Mrs Swan. We are looking forward to working together and learning lots of exciting and new things this year! Check our blog regularly to see what we have been up to. We would love to read your comments.
In Room 7 this week we are learning to learn sign language. It is an exciting and new subject. Most of us have learned how to spell our names in sign language. We have also learned how to spell thing like, ‘good morning,’ ‘girl’ and ‘boy.’ We wonder how deaf people learnt it. Our teacher makes it look so easy to do, but in actual fact it’s very difficult! It makes us feel very lucky because we can hear. Here are the letters of sign language:
Room 7 had been working on the kiwi icon for weeks. We have worked on showing the icon that we wanted to save the most. Mrs Swan told us,“If you could save any icon from New Zealand what would it be?” We all had to take in to account that there was so much of them that we would have to choose carefully and work out how important they are. We thought the hardest/most stressful time was when we didn’t have the resources we needed, last week.
The How We Made The Kiwi Icon
First of all we painted the foam balls, then we waited for the paint to dry, on the second day we did a second layer and also painted the beak,The next day we put on the googly eyes. After that we made the kiwi’s base ( Home/Natural habitat ) And we put the skewers for the feet. Then, we put the skewers in the base of the habitat and it stood up! We then put the beak on and we were finished. I think that the best part was when we finished because that was when we were all relieved since we had been working for weeks
