Then we were running around for a little bit when we got under the shade. Next Mrs Teleso told us to stand in our group lines  under the shade then mrs Teleso gave us the bubble wand and I got to go first. In the orange group we had to spread out in our around in the shade Miss Teleso told us not to go out in the sun because we might go far out in the sun.  Miss Teleso called us back the we went back to class.I loved blowing bubbles with my friends in room fourteen.

Working together

Last Thursday was a very wet a rainy day at Pt England School. We were stuck inside all day. After lunch Miss Davis was so impressed with the way were were working together at lunchtime to build with lego, create a marble run, play games and create picture that we continued to do this into the afternoon.






After we had taken down our creations we talked about the way we were using our key competencies when we constructed things together. We realised that we learnt a lot from this time and that as a class we can work really well together when we talk nicely and let everyone be part of what we are doing.




We hope you enjoy the pictures of our creation.

Writing about Robots and Friendship

Last week Room 14 retold the story of 'Jack'. First we watch a video that showed Jacks adventure trying to find a friend in a junk yard. The movie is below if you would like to watch it too.



Then Room 14 told the story in their own words thinking carefully about how Jack felt and the order of event that lead him to his new friend.

Room 14 worked on their story over a number of days and respond to feedback by adding detail and editing their work. Once they felt there writing was ready to share they created a picture of Pixlr to accompany their writing.


Here are three of their wonderful stories. Please remember you can click the link to view their blog and leave them a comment.


Jack was sitn on the dump sad and he was looking for a friend but he could  not find a frend well he jasd staying there. He had a smile on his face on the plug and the tape on the robot face and he was sitn with the robot.

Once upon a time in the land of the junk there lived a little robot named Jack. He was alone with no friend  to play with he was a little sad lonely  robot.Then Jack had a great idea to make a fake friend to play with.Jack was so happy then he got sad because it did nothing. Jack had to do lots of staff for his new fake friend.Jack didint  like him so Jack went blue as the sky.Jack was angry.


Then Jack saw a plug and put his hand in it the when Jack put his hand in he got hurt and fired  by the plug and then sudley  a friend girl robot showed up in front of Jack the they plug their arm’s together.


Once upon a time there lived a lonely robot named Jack he was walking in a junk yard.He was searching for a friend.Then he created a new friend and he put a smile as black tape then he felt sad because the smile almost came of then he walked again then he found another helpful friend.jack and the girl matched.


Thank you for reading your writing we look forward to sharing more creative writing as the year continues.

Duffy Show

Toady Room 14 went to the Duffy show. We watch Duffy and his friends overcome challenges and learn that even when our brains work differently like they do for people who are dyslexic we can have brilliant ideas and help others.



We also learnt about protect our environment and that if everyone does a little bit and takes responsibility we can make a difference to climate change.

Duffy and his friends have inspired us to keep reading and learning about all the exciting things in the world that we don't know yet.


Thank you Duffy!!

Cybersmart Learning About Me

Last week Room 14 wrote their about me statements for their blogs. They had to think carefully about what they wrote and decide if it was personal information they wanted to share or keep to themselves. Once they had decided it was time write and share. To start their cybersmart about me room 14 used a flower template and choose 5 things they wanted to share. Then they wrote one on each petal. The flowers they created are now our cybersmart wall and their about me writing is being posted on their blogs.


Our Class Treaty

Last week Room 14 talk about what we need to do to good learners in our classroom. As a class we came up with 8 thing that we believe are will help us have a great year and do amazing learning.


After we had decided on our 8 treaty principle we create a handprint with our name and a pattern to add to our treat tree to say that we agreed to the treaty. This treaty will remain on our wall to remind us how to be great learners and friends this year.
