Term 1, Room 2’s learning report:
Hello and welcome to Room 2’s official homepage!!!! "This just in", Room 2 has been doing so well in science that Nick’s chemistry set is EXPLODING….. With knowledge.
Now for the weather report!
Room 2’s awesome creativity seems to be causing warm, brain-overloading, multi-coloured rain!!! The rain is causing puddles knee high, that seem to be full of fitness and strength!!! In fact, the rain has been so warm that Room 2 has been swimming in our luxurious swimming pool and drinking smoothies, and occasionally both at the same time!!!! Nah, I was just joking there. BUT, the chickens have been soooooo hot that we have had to shave them!!! Um, yeah I was joking there as well.
But for more information about the chickens, our swimming pool, or you would like to hear more about our shmoooozies, read on.
THIS HAS BEEN ROOM 2 NEWS, ENJOY YOUR DAY!

A few weeks ago Room 2 went to Green Bay School library. Once they took their shoes off and
put one foot on the fluffy carpet they went wild! But wait, there’s more! They were running
around like baboons in circles eating fruit and veges while screaming. As soon as they heard
sirens they grabbed a classmate and sprinted off. Police teams have been investigating.
As many as 50 school rules have been broken. The chief police has told us that police are
trying hard to track down the offenders.

We are rowing in the waters of success towards the sun!!! and that means :
*We leave all the bad things behind us; the bad things are the shadows.
*We work as a team to row the boat towards the sun and we all try hard to keep rowing straight.
*Our waves tell everyone’s achievements and our paddles tell everyone’s goals!
*Our class treaty is on the clouds watching over us!

OMG! Our chickens are famous! The TV reporters (the kids from Taupaki School) came to
interview us, with their awesome Ipads! (We wish we had some!)
The chickens had their photos taken from the TV reporters!
It’s so cute, the chickens fall asleep when we hold them like babies! Hopefully you didn’t stand
in the chicken Doo-Doo, TV reporters! The TV reporters went to pat our chickens.
Be careful TV reporters, don’t let the Barred rock chickens (zebra) peck you!
We had a meeting with the TV reporters with the awesome Ipads, and told them
some things about our chickens.
You’re so awesome TV reporters from Taupaki School! Hope to see you again soon.

The school is growing a lot of fruit. Some of them have been ripe.
So Room 2 decided to turn them into delicious smoothies!
First we picked a bunch of our bananas, and then we picked some
of our passionfruit (yummy!).
Room 2 peeled and chopped, sliced and scooped and got very sticky
and slimy! We blended what was soon to be a delicious smoothie
and then poured them into cups.
Room 2 thought that the smoothies were totally delicious!
Anja seemed to love them, too!!! Room 2 then realized that they had
some leftover smoothies, so they gave them to some other teachers.
They thought our smoothies were delicious, too!

The Smoothies tasted delicious. There were a few Italians with moustaches.
The Smoothies also had tonnes of ice. Some of us had BRAINFREEZE but, it wore off.
It tasted so nice that I didn’t eat any lunch. We barely could finish our Smoothies.
But at the end everyone had to shave their awesome moustaches (Awwwww).
I wish I still had mine, I hope Andy DOESN’T shave his.
I could barely finish mine so I asked who wanted it and everyone wanted it (it was a hard choice).
My stomach couldn’t fit any food for lunch.

ROOM 2 goes swimming
When you first get in, it feels like you’re stuck in an ice cube.
Then the ice cube melts away.
In the pool we can do cool tricks
like twirling and flipping. Kids are hilarious in the pool joking and playing around. Every one splashes up like big fountains.
When you try to run you go as slow as a slimy snail. When you
get out you drip like rain falling from the sky. Finally we go and
get dressed and head back to class. We are sticky and wet,
some of us are hot, and some of us are cold.
Last we finish our work.

Maritime Museum trip
Room 2 went to the Maritime Museum on Friday, 5th April.
It was a very long bus ride all the way into town to the Viaduct Harbour.
When we arrived a man named Fraser told us all about the Maritime Museum
and what we were going to do all day. We all had morning tea because we were
very hungry after a long bus ride.
Room 1 got onto the Ted Ashby, a large sailing boat, and went to go for a joyride.
Fraser took Room 2 and some of Room 15 to go watch a short video about the first
explorers from Polynesia who discovered New Zealand.
After we watched the video Fraser showed everyone a waka that was about 4 years old,
but was built like an old waka the first immigrants came on. They only added some
modern features like solar panels. Everyone was very interested to know that the waka
had travelled to nearly every Pacific island.
Then we all went to do some lashing (tying two sticks together with rope).
Not everybody picked up the skill as quick as others, but eventually we all
did a great job. Fraser showed us what the rope like string was made out of
and it was actually made out of the hair of large coconuts.
After that Room 1 returned from their boat trip and we swapped life-jackets and went
aboard the boat. We helped pull the sails up and then we were off!!!
It was quite a long boat trip but the sea air was a pleasant and healthy scent for our lungs.
When we returned we all had a big scavenger hunt in the museum, with a sheet
of paper telling us what we should find. There were some very interesting exhibits
in the museum. After the scavenger hunt we had our lunch, thanked Fraser for a
fun day and left to wait for our bus. When we returned back to school we were
