Auroa Primary School - Discovery Time with Room 8

This is the first video of 2014 from the students of Auroa Primary School. One Friday Room Eight held their first discovery lesson where they got to try a variety of exciting learning activities. Room One were there to assist and with the help from some of the students from Room Two were able to film some footage from the time.

What activities can you see the students taking part in? Are there any other activities that you think our students would enjoy? What part of the video do you like best?

    Dear Mr. Webb and class,

    I love the way that your video shows some activities that the kids are enjoying in your class. I like how the kids are having a fun time and participating in school projects.

    My favorite subject in school is art class because we have just gotten an art teacher. She is actually only new to some of the students in our school because this art teacher as been here for many years before.

    Do you have art class or do you do projects only in your classroom? What's your favorite subject in school?

    Your new blogging buddy,

      Thank you for your comments I will share this with my class, they are very excited to be blogging and working online. It is so wonderful to receive your comment because we are still working on our comment format and how comments should look. I know that Mrs Yollis has done a lot of work with you and your class about modelling the best way to leave comments and some of our students are still working on this so it is great to have a fantastic example.

      We have a mix of arts and projects in our classroom. As our students are older once a week they go to a local college (High School) and they receive extra lessons there as part of their learning and one of these is art. We also have art as part of our learning.

      I think that if we asked our students about their favourite subject at school they would all probably say 'Physical Education' or PE for short. We have lots of students who play sport at our school in sports like Basketball, Rubgy Netball and Cricket and lots of students do this at the weekend. We are lucky that it is summer here at the moment we are able to go swimming every morning.

      Thank you for your wonderful comment.

      Mr Webb and Room One
