Embracing Cultures - Diversity

In Term 3 Room 3 will  be having an awesome time looking at Embracing Cultures - Diversity.  Each class has been given a different continent and Room 3 got South America.  We will have students finding out about 4 countries - Agentina, Brazil, Colombia and Peru.  I wonder what amazing things the Room 3 students will discover!

Week 8 - Melbourne and Learning

On Tuesday on Week 8 at 3:30pm Miss G and Mrs Tui left to go to Melbourne, Australia. 

While Miss G was in Melbourne, Australia she had an awesome time. She went there with 21 other teachers. The reason why Miss G and Mrs Tui went there was to see how to make our school a modern learning environment. She saw huge classrooms there and really cool rooms and stuff. In Melbourne they don't call them classrooms they called them Learning Neighborhoods. She visited 8 schools, the names of the schools she saw were Broadmeadows, Silverton Primary, Berwick Chase, Danderong High, Hume High, Meadows Primary and Broadmeadow Valley Primary. On her last day at Melbourne she went to the rugby with some other teachers, she said that it was about 1 degree. The time she flew back to New Zealand was 1:30am. 

She also said that she woke up to plenty of sunshine and had heaps of food. When she came back she bought us some tiny Koala toys. 

While she was away Room 3 had lots of fun as well but not as much as Miss G. My favorite thing that I did was make my cookie construction with my partner.
