We are back!

Week One, Term Two
This week the whole class was really glad to be back ! In Room 19 have been practicing our mash up of songs including : Bruno Mars Just the way you are , Jenifer Lopez Lets get loud , Willow Smith Whip my hair .

We have also been learning the waltz for topic : Keeping it real !

Miss Buchanan is reading a new book called Artemis Fowl , which is about a twelve year old brilliant criminal mastermind . But Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnapped a fairy , Captian Holly short of the Leprecon Unit . These aren't the fairy from bedtime stories, these fairies are dangerous and armed .

Soccer time!

At lunch time today we got to play soccer against Room 10. While the players fought hard against the opposition, the rest of the class were fantastic cheer leaders(lead by Miss Buchanan of course). There's nothing like a bit of summer sport to brighten up anyones day.

Look at how smart we are!

During their spare time three of the boys from Room 19 decided to make an animation. They MUST teach Miss Buchanan how to do that.
It took one hour and a half and 107 photos to create fifteen seconds of quality movie magic.

The day Miss Buchanan taught them why you should never splash a teacher...

Today we went to Pt Erin Pools with the Anawhata Pod. We had so much fun playing cricket, jumping off the diving boards and splashing Miss Buchanan(who always wins!). Miss Buchanan loved spending time with us outside of school and enjoyed singing with us on the bus. At the end of the day six kids fell asleep on the way back to school and were rudely awakened by Sam yelling in their ears.

Crazy Hair Day!

Today we had our first "Freaky Friday". I believe that to create life long learners the students need to love coming to school. A way of ensuring this love of learning is by having freaky fridays. We will have them every few weeks and they are just used as a bit of a pick me up or motivation for the students.

This friday was crazy hair day. All the kids came to school with bright wigs, painted hair and crazy styles. Those who didn't were attacked by Miss Buchanan and her " barber chair" and emerged looking just as crazy as the rest of us!

Come and join the craziness...

Hi, my name is Miss Buchanan and I am the lucky teacher who gets to work in Room 19. We have just started a new year at Summerland Primary and I am very excited to get to know my class. I am sure that we will have a lot of fun and learn many amazing things.

Throughout the year we will add our stories, photos, movies and memories to this blog. We are very excited to share it with you and hope that you will comment on our posts.
