Our Legacy Garden

On Wednesday Room 9 planted a Garden!!

We had about 6 different types of plants. We planted them in a bath tub. The bath tub is on our classroom's deck.

We had lobelias, ageratum, white aylssum and dianthus for plants.We planted two plants each.

We had to wear vinyl gloves and dust masks.

First we dug a hole, then we lightly tickled the plant's roots, then we put it in the hole and put soil over the top. We had to flatten the soil around the plant.

We think the bath looks great with all the pretty plants in it.

We are going to look after it over the holidays and next year when we are in different classes, we can visit and look at our plants.

What a term!

We have been reflecting today on all the cool things and cool learning we have done during Term 4 this year.

Just have a look at our mindmap (made using the free online programme Mindomo) to see what we've been up to - click on it to get a better view.


Well done to Josh, Thomas and Rohan for completing the mindmap online using all of Room 9's great ideas!

Look @ us!!

Today we made some cool art using our digital photos from the start of the year (we look VERY different now!). We cut out our heads from the photos and then cut magazines out and stuck clothes and body parts on us!

They are going into our sample books as a surprise for our parents....
Shhhhh! Don't tell them! :)

Enjoy our slideshow below:



Well done to Joseph for choosing the cool "skin" called 'multicolour' for our slideshow!

Our Descriptive Poetry

We have been writing descriptive poetry this term.
For the past two days we have been writing poems that compare us to other things!

Have a read of some of Zoe's wonderful writing below:


I feel as happy as an over-excited chimpanzee.
I feel as dizzy as a distracted dinosaur.


I look as silly as a circus clown.
I look as pretty as a purple petunia.


I am as crazy as a colourful cougar.
I am as skinny as a starving seagull.
I am as smart as a smiling squirrel.


I smell as sweet as a serene scent.
I smell as scrumptious as a strawberry souffle.
I smell as breezy as essence of pearl, jasmin and gardenia.

Totara Syndicate Athletics

Last week we got invited to Totara Syndicate Athletics. We got to run with the 9 year old boys and girls, even thought we are only 7 years old!.

We had to run 400 meters around around a circle. Thomas came 9th for the 9 year old boys. Tayla came 8th for the 9 year old girls.

We got invited to run with Totara syndicate because we both did so well in the open 2 lap race in the cross country.

Before the race I felt nervous and sick. While I was running I felt excited. After the race I felt happy because I came 8th - Tayla

Before the race I felt good, I thought I would do well. While I was running I felt great because I was doing well. After the race I felt alright because I beat other, older kids - Thomas

Well done Thomas and Tayla!!!
