  1. Thanks for a wonderful term 1 Room 7.
    I have loved watching you make friends, settle into our class expectations and rules, work hard to achieve your Term 1 goals and smile when you walk through the door each morning!
    Term 2 is another super-fun filled term of learning. I can't wait for another exciting term!
    I hope you all have a relaxing and fun holiday.
    See you soon!
    Mrs Natusch

  2. It looks like you did lots of learning this term Room 7.

    We are a class of Year 4/5 students and we did some of the same things as you. We went on camp and I know you will have lots of stories to tell about that!

    We have also been trying out 100 word challenges and are just beginning to tweet. The thing we have loved this term has been learning lots of Te Reo.

    I am looking forward to seeing what you do next term.

    1. Hi Katie
      I really like the comment you made on Room 7's blog! It was very well written. Thanks for looking into Room 7's learning blog, as well as doing all your hard work on your own blog!
      Keep up the great comment writing, people love to read such well written comments.

      From Mrs Paton

  4. Hi Room 7
    What an action packed term 1 you had! The highlights for me were;
    - camp week
    - Mangakara bush walk
    - learning about native birds
    - Learning how to twitter better

    Knowing your teacher, I am sure you have all loved learning in Room 7! Mrs Natusch does an incredible job planning and guiding your learning.

    I wonder what ideas she has planned for term 2?

    Mrs Paton
