Did you know that fault lines don't actually go throughout the whole of New Zealand? I do NOW
Did you know that Liquefaction is when the waste and water pipes break and leave liquid all over the ground? I do NOW
Did you know that there's such thing as a Richter scale that rates the earthquake? I do NOW

Just two days ago I didn't have a clue about earthquakes but thanks to the NZ Shakeout I learnt that Three simple things can save your life-DROP, COVER , HOLD! I also learnt that geologists study the earth and that there are four main layers of the earth and when Deformation occurs it is when the ground gets uneven. People are more prepared then before since the Christchurch Earthquake.

Thank you for the shakeout

Term 4

Hi everyone

I hope you had a great holiday and you are all ready for our busy term ahead.  
We have 2 new additions to our classroom that has been long overdue.  I will leave it up to you what you name them.

I have a new challenge this term that I would like to introduce.  The aim is to get your parents to visit our class blog, your individual blogs and to leave a comment.  I will keep a running tally as to who gets the most comments from their parents. You all know what quality comments are and I wonder if could teach your parents or we put up a video to explain what a quality comment is? or we could have an afternoon where we invite the parents in to show them.  We will discuss this week how we can achieve this.  What do you think?

I am looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.

Your teacher Mrs P

Problem Solving

My name is Meagan and Mrs Paniora has been experimenting on different learning styles. Her Latest one [my personal favourite] has been awesome. Every one gets a turn to have a laptop for the whole day to do work that she's planned. There's heaps of work but that just means she works really hard. But anyway here's my math work, it's based on problem solving. By Meagan

The Variety show

\ The Variety show is coming up and room 4 are doing They're own learning parodys-except using three of them in a MIX!!! Meagan [me] is playing the trumpet and Bens playing the drums, isn't it just AWESOME. We are using Bills [Tests] By lunchmoneylewis, Move [Hey school kids] by little mix and for the winning song UPTOWN CLASS [Uptown Funk] we've worked very hard, for instance Teagan who choreographed the whole thing! I've got to say everyone all pulled their weight to. The Funny thing is that the drummer doesn't even know how to play the Drums so The Trumpet player had to write it by ear [hahaha] I hope everyone who comes enjoys it -Meagan [The Trumpeter]


On Thursday 30th July Room 4 played hockey with Madison and Jordan from Youth town. We learnt new skills and some people improved on skills they already knew. We played a cool game and did awesome warm ups.

Ma'a Nonu

We had a special assembly on Wednesday.  It was a big surprise! Guess who came Ma'a Nonu.  He is an All Black and also plays for the Hurricanes.  He handed out special certificates to the students who were awesome learners. They got to shake his hand.  We also had a Q & A and Mrs P, Meagan and Ben got to ask him a question.  The students who go to the after school care SKIDS were allowed a photo with him and those who played Rugby.  Even the teachers got to have a photo.  Lucky them!!!!
