Term 3 Incentive Day

Yesterday in room 12 we had our incentive day. To be able to participate we have to earn the right to play. We have to work on our spelling, completing work on time, following instructions and being organised.
We had Nintendo Wii, Nintendo ds, singstar, connect four and much more
Here is a photo of our class Connect four Champion, Rachael. Our Singstar champion was a complete shock but not to the winner. Our champion is our teacher Mr Madge. He certainly sings flat but he sure knows how to hold a note.

Wearable arts

So far in wearable arts we have done four kinds of designs. They were called, Pla-it cool, that's a wrap, the simple sandwich and the twist and shout.
To make it to incentive day we have to make them to a high enough standard.
We had to make at least one of every sort. They were all pretty easy once you got the hang of it.

Islam in Room12

In room 12 we have been studying Islam. So far we have learned:
  • that Muslims believe in one god called Allah and that he is Eternal
  • 124,000 prophets were sent to every country in the whole world to spread the word of Allah
  • the last and most famous prophet was Muhammad,
  • Muhammad wrote the Muslims holy book the Qu'ran and it took him 22years to write.

Wearable Arts

In room 12 we have been collecting knitting wool to make our wearable arts, we are starting in Room12.
We are doing wearable arts to raise money for the trip in room 12, which will be for our incentive day to go to Porirua pools next term.
We are hoping to show our items in the assembly or somewhere else public for others to see.
Everybody in room 12 must have at least one ball of wool.

Report writing

In class we have recently explored how to write paragraphs, and now we have to use these skills to write reports. We brainstormed the question 'What is report writing?' Our current understandings are below:


In room 12 we made a twitter account last week on Monday.
Izzy and Briar have been updating our class twitter account about once a day every week. On Twitter they have been posting text messages about what we have been doing in room 12.
