What's been happening in Room 7

What a whirlwind the last few weeks have been. This blog post is a quick update on what we've been up.

Buddied up with our teina
Last week we had two trips out of school. On Wednesday the whole school went to the Manaiakalani Film Festival at Hoyts Xtreme Screen in Sylvia Park. We went there tuakana - teina style, so Room 7 got to take care of our new entrants children in Room 4. There we got to sit in the plush seats and see all Glenbrae School's films on the big screen. When we got back to school we got to re-watch our favourites and some we'd missed, and post thoughtful positive comments on people's films. If you would like to check out some of the films yourself you can view them on the Manaiakalani website.  Be sure to watch Room 7's "We're going to be friends" and "They're Coming"  

On Thursday last week we went on another trip, this time to the Auckland Stardome. Here we learned lots about the Solar System and in particular the way the earth spins on it's axis and orbits the sun. We discovered that this is what causes the seasons: Summer, Winter, Autumn and Spring. 
Unfortunately we were unable to take pictures inside the Stardome, but we do have some wonderful pictures of us reading books on the bus ride there and playing in the playground during lunch time! 

Also yesterday, half of Room 7, along with half of Rooms 8 and 5, got to go on a special science adventure to Auckland University. Here we went into the Chemistry lab and got to participate in 5 awesome science experiments. It was pretty high-tech stuff, and I'm sure we have a few budding scientists in our midst.
