In week 2 we did the rest of our stationary sorting like naming books and we also started journalling like math, learning and just journalling. We started home learning you might know already. We also named our hooks were we put up our bags then we set up our KEA hub classroom, devices and seesaw. In the morning people made some awesome stuff. People then we started iCreate, we took pictures then edited them, we drew pictures of the stuffed animals we have in the classroom like Snowflake, Mr BunnyKins and Cuddle Monkey. Some people drew them with armour and some people drew them as baby's. Then the next day we played danish with Mr Welsh. We learnt or refreshed our 11 time times above 20, Then we did magical squares. Then the next day Mrs Christian was back and we played t-ball against room 8 then later on we reversed room 8 and we won twice. Then today we announced the kaiarahi and we are now a Enviroschool. That means that we will have an envirogroup. They go around picking up rubbish and branches and stuff that people leave on the floor. We have bins all around the school and a whole lot of other cool stuff. By Caitlin H and Zane H.

First day of school we did games and stationery. We played a team building game were the outside of our feet had to touch the outsides of the peoples feet next to you. Next we got a long wood ruler and in groups of five, we had to use 1 finger on each hand. Then all together we had to lower it to the ground. Then we wrote down in the same groups of five things that should in be in our class e.g. have our own hooks. Then someone said, "pet turtle" and that was funny.
The next day, we wrote down a learning map. What we did is write things that you use for learning, places and people. The some people wrote down the connections. One of them was a crazy one and that meant that some times you understand what their saying and sometimes you don't. Then once we were nearly finished we placed them down in two lines and collected ideas from other people's maps.
Day three of school we had school assembly then later on we went to the library. After morning tea we shared what we did in the holidays and what we are going to do for the long weekend. After lunch we had a story and played games. We were doing our avatars for our learning tubs, drawing on the whiteboard and doing other things. Then we played a game outside and went back inside. We reflected on our awesome day then went home to our awesome families.
