Term 1, 2009

We have had such a busy time in Room 9 over the past 10 weeks of term 1.
We have learned about and done so many interesting things.

Today we had to write about one thing we particularly enjoyed, liked or was our favourite. We gathered all our ideas by doing a big class brainstorm.

You can see here in the diagram all of the things we remembered being involved in during Term 1:

We have done so much fantastic learning this term.
Take a look here at our Writing Spot Blog here to see what we have liked the best in Term 1:

Thinking Hat Tuesday - If there were no adults

This Tuesday our thinking skills topic for Oral Language was
"If there were no adults".

This was definitely quite an exciting topic!
We used De Bono's Red and Black thinking hats to investigate and discuss how we would feel and why it would be bad if there were no adults around.

You can check out our best ideas by clicking and looking at the photo below.

Walking Wednesdays: Feet First

All of Nelson Central School has been attempting to walk, cycle or scooter to school each Wednesday this term for "Walking Wednesdays"

"Feet First" 2009 encourages primary school students to walk to school with a caregiver, friend, or organised walking group at least once a week, every week, during term time. You can read more about the Feet First project by visiting here:

Room 9 has been keeping a graph every Wednesday to record who walked, cycled or scootered to school each day. It has been great to see the numbers go up each week!

Take a look at our graph and start thinking how we could continue this healthy initiative next term!
