Term 3 has been a really busy term for Room 2. Throughout this term we have been learning about Disasters. Learning about Disasters was really interesting because of the many disasters that happened globally this year. An example was the Christchurch earthquake with a magnitude of 7.1.
For the first few weeks of this term we have been doing procedure writing. Our teacher Mrs Sigamoney demonstrated the procedure of making Indian samoosas. We had to follow the instructions and welearnt how to fold the pastry. It was not as easy as we thought, but it was fun. We had to listen carefully to the instructions and then do a procedure writing of our own.
Then we started doing a news report on a New Zealand or World Disaster. That was an interesting research task for us.
Money group this year has been really challenging for us Room 2 students. Most of us had been participating in it. It was a maths competition where a group of 3 people confront the other group. It was so fun because we learnt new stuff such as GST, kiwi saver, and many more.
Thanks to the Duffy Club and Mrs Raj.
The amazing media team! What have we been doing in media? The Yr8’s have been training the Yr7’s for next year. It was an awesome opportunity for Room 2 students to present Tamaki Today and School...Inc. We would like to thank Mr Munnik for helping us.
‘Sports’. Highlights were the Open Grade boys game against Pt.England, and Open Grade girls game against Bader. This term we also have been training for Volleyball for our tournament next term.
A bonus for us this term is having another student teacher for 5 weeks, Miss Andrea Begunk. She’s really fun to hang around. She has a bubbling personality. Learning with her and Mrs Sigamoney has been really cool and fun. Mrs Sigamoney teaches us great new stuff. We would like to thank both of them for putting their effort in teaching us so we can get a good and wonderful education.
