Last Assembly for the year

Kia Ora koutou,

I can't believe how fast this year has gone.  We've come to our very last assembly and what a funny one it was.  My students have been focusing on making 'how to....' videos relating to their coding knowledge.  They're especially interested in this new craze called Dance Party.  We have also been preparing for our end of year celebration where they've decided to produce a dance.  It's honestly been a whirl wind of a year with so much happening, and we often forget to take the time to share with our family and friends what we've achieved and accomplished.

I couldn't be any prouder of my students.  They've grown so much.   They make reflections, give things ago, make mistakes and learn from those experiences.  Many of my students were too shy to even speak in front of a camera.  Too shy to perform in front of the class.  Now they are all more than capable of showcasing their learning to others - especially to an online platform such as blogger.

Nga mihi nui ki a koutou akomanga toru.
Na Whaea Gaylene

Elf Yourself

Whaea Tania came to visit Room 3 today for the last time this year. The students have been having loads of fun experimenting with elf yourself. A great theme that aligns with our end of year preparation for prizegiving. We can't wait to share our performance with you all, so watch this space.
