Roots of Empathy

In room 16 we are learning to step in to the shoes of others. We have a baby come in called Nico he comes in every 3 weeks . He can gurgle, laugh and cry AND sleep . We are learning how the baby is feeling and if its hungry also NEVER SHAKE a baby.

My learning this year so far

This year for maths room 16 has been learning about the census.This is the procedure of what we did
1. write down questions
2. Bring it home
3. Get everyone in your household to write down their answers
4. Bring it back so you can collect the data
5. Then display the data into graphs and write a conclusion
We had to do a poster, a news paper or a slide show.I did a pop out poster. I learnt how to do a stem and leaf graph and I learnt heaps of facts on the census like there is one every 5 years and I learnt the procedure and lots more facts.I really enjoyed doing Room 16's census!

Aloha night

I could not stop thinking about Aloha because I knew how exciting it was last year so this year I thought it would be more exciting and it was. My most favourite parts were doing the dances and spending money also getting a ring and a necklace that both light up when you push a button. After Aloha on Monday Dean our care taker cleaned the school and if we didn't have Dean then we would have to clean the school now that would be quite tiring.

Aloha night

At Aloha day I could not stop thinking about Aloha night!I was jumping up and down. You should be jumping up and down to about it. I was the leader of the jump jam so I was shaking all over. It was really annoying because I was trying to dance but the parents were so close to me also the music started going to fast so what did I do.......I went super mode! BUT! my most favorite part was the candy floss! The candy floss was bigger than my head.
Anyway hope you enjoyed reading my point of view about ALOHA NIGHT!

p.s I can't wait till the next one

On friday before ALOHA I felt really Excited I couldn't stop jumping . When it was the performance something went wrong with the Music because it went really fast .But I kept on going so I danced really fast like the Music did. Our class bobbed up and down when it was the kapa haka group . After the performance I had some chicken and rice for my dinner . After
dinner I had a massive block of candy floss . I felt sad when we left because I really Enjoyed ALOHA I wish I could stay.
