Earth Shake

Last week for Shared Reading we read a story called 'Earth Shake'
We talked about what we should do if we ever experienced an earthquake while in the classroom or outside.

We showed what we would do if we experiences an earthquake while in the classroom.

We also showed what we would do if we were outside and an earthquake happened.

Totara's Treaty

Over the last few weeks we have been discussing our Classroom Expectations. We have been talking about what makes a good 'rule' to help us remember what is expected of us. We are using the ipads to create posters. We have used PicCollage and Explain Everything to create our Totara Treaty. Look out for our Treaty in the next few days.
Here are some photos of us creating our posters.

Week 1-2 Writing: My World

For the past week we have been finding out about each other in Room 15: Totara. 
We have been creating a piece of writing identifying what we like to look at, listen to, smell, taste and touch.
We looked at a poem by Pie Corbett to help get an idea of how to write our own poem.
