Room 1 has a new name!

Room Bloom

We thought a lot about our School's theme this year which is:

Believe it to Achieve it!

Each group brainstormed their own ideas of what they thought would be a good name.

They then created a google presentation that they "shared" with me. All the class watched them and we then voted on which Class Name would be the best for us this year.

We choose Room Bloom!

We have already had our Be at Brooklyn Night where we got to meet each other and talk about what Room 1 will look like this year.

A way to communicate with me is by emailing me kat@brooklyn.school.nz or contact me the message option on Class Dojo.

We are using Class Dojo this year in Room 1 to help us create a great class atmosphere and promote super learning skills. 

You should have received a personal code so you can see your child's "story" and the "class story".

The Class Story will act as my main blog this year, and I will use this as a way to communicate important information to you instantly.
Looking forward to a wonderful year with this fabulous group of students.

We are so excited! Room 1 found out today that we are going on a 2 night / 3 day camp in Marahau from the 30th of November until the 2nd of December. Camp notices went home with each student today for families to read and start filling in to return to school. Copies of the notices are here and will be available from Lucy, at the school office or on the camp page on the blog. Please do not hesitate to contact Lucy if you have any questions, suggestions or offers!

Dissecting a Dogfish with Richard de Hamel

WARNING: This post contains some graphic yet fascinating images.

Today we were so lucky to have scientist Richard de Hamel visit to dissect a Dogfish this morning. The information we learnt was fascinating. While some of us felt a little queasy, it was a very enjoyable and informative. Keep a look out for some reports from the class about what we learnt.
