What has Room 15 been up to lately?

Room 15 has been up to some exciting things lately. Here's a little peek into our classroom...

Have you seen our new classroom display? We wrote stories about looking out into a Frozen Land. You won't believe some of the characters we come across!



We got new 12 new tangram puzzles in Room 15 this week. We were so excited to try them out! Look how focussed we were! 

For extra fun, why not pop over to the "Math Madness" section of our blog - Miss Chalmers has found some fun online tangram games to play. CLICK HERE!

This is a tangram. You can make lots of different shapes with just 7 pieces!



Two of our reading groups have been engaged in hands-on learning activities this week. The Peadbodys read a book which explained how to make a bridge out of a piece of paper. We tried it out and had heaps of fun! With the help of Darius and Kayne, the Peabodys learnt a lot about collaborating and working together. 



The Bees read a book about an artist who makes sculptures out of corrugated iron just like the ones in the picture below. Check out the corrugated cardboard sculptures we made!


In Room 15 we have been learning about collaborating. We know that by collaborating with others we achieve great things. These children were caught collaborating this week and took home certificates to share with their families. Well done Jocelyn, Keira, Kayne and Darius!

    1. The girls were all so excited to take their sculptures home last week. Miss Chalmers was excited to get the back room back to normal too - phew, those sculptures are huge! :)

  4. We love Keiras sculpture! We are glad it wasn't a huge house like Jaime and Elisa made because we couldn't fit that on the wall! Great work guys!

    1. I really like how Keira used different shades of pink in her sculpture. She did a wonderful job!

  5. You're certainly a very busy class room 15! I enjoyed the Frozen stories very much, and the collaborating and sculptures looked great.

  6. Didn't they do well? I think the sculptures may end up being a "highlight" for The Bees reading group this year. They're still finding little bits of cardboard to create masterpieces with!
