MOTAT Trip - Term 2

In term 2 room 22 learnt about 'Simple Machines'. We had fun making moving vehicles showing different types of simple machines like a wheel and axle, levers etc... Students also tested their vehicles on a variety of ramps. We ended our topic with a trip to MOTAT. Our Simple Machine Educator Teresa showed us around her special classroom. The students enjoyed the hands on activities and a ride on the MOTAT tram.

Last Monday 27 March, room 22 along with all the senior school visited the Auckland Zoo to learn more about NZ Endangered species.  We learnt about our native birds, forests and predators.  As students we have been given the job of being 'Guardians of the Forest'. To protect our forests so our wildlife can still be around for us to enjoy for many years to come.

We are planning a trip to the Auckland Zoo in week 9. The students will be learning about which NZ native animals are endangered or becoming endangered e.g: Kiwi, Yellow-eyed Penguin etc... The students will spend the day there, watch this space.

Hi my name is Ravneel and I'm one of the authours for our room 22 class blog.
This term we are learning about the weather and will be going on a trip to Totara park next Thursday and there will be posts so look out for that. 
Also we have a compass and map work this Thursday

to use a map.  Today we learnt how to measure from point to
point. We also learned how to use the compass points. I hope you see our blog
every day so you can see the fun we have.

Hi my name is Urvish, I'm one of the editors for room 22's classroom blog.
Our classroom is very creative in what they do, some artwork will be displayed soon.
My favorite subject is Maths because I like problem solving.
