At the start of the term we got into groups of four for our topic activity. We had to do a webquest which involved our group getting US $10,000 and having to plan a 14 day holiday. We chose our continent out of a hat and started out holiday there. We had to go to three different countries in our continent. Here are some presentations of what we did.

Trust Building

This term we have spent a lot of time doing confidence and trust building activities. We have found activities and tried them outside. One of our favourites is "mine field" where your team mates have to give you directions while somebody is blindfolded.
We hope you enjoy our video.

Maths Strategies

This year we have been learning to show our understanding of our maths knowledge and strategies by making video tutorials. If we can explain clearly what we have learnt, then it shows that we have a good understanding of it. Here is an example of one of our maths tutorials.

In our reading activities, one of the tasks we have been doing is to create character profiles based on the themes and messages we have learnt from the text. Here is an example of the kind of character profiles we have been creating.

Room 6 Collaboration

In our class we try and collaborate in our learning activities as much as we can. Here is a clip of an example of how we do this.

We have been learning to explain how we understand different strategies. To do this we have been using an ipad app called "explain everything". Here is an example of one of our presentations.


Recently we have been using lyrics from songs as out guided reading texts. Last week we read "What I Am" by Will.I.Am. As part of our reading we had to present what we had learned. We did this as collaborative group work. The first thing we had to decide was how we were going to present our learning. Then we had to plan how we were going to do it and who was going to do what jobs. Here they are. We hope you like them.
