WOW, what wonderful writers!

We've been working super hard in Room 15 on all sorts of tricky writing goals. I'm so impressed at the number of goals all the children have achieved! We have a whole class full of budding authors.
The children's progress is amazing - lots of them have moved up a level on our writing wall. FANTABULOUS! I have a feeling I'm going to have to add a new chart very soon!
Ask your children about their current writing levels and goals or chat about the most recent writing they've shared with you on Seesaw.

Tiritiri Matangi

We are all getting very excited about our trip this Friday! Remember to come to school bright and early and prepared for cold or wet weather conditions.
We have nearly all the children's permission slips now - keep them coming!

Great learning buddies listen.
Great learning buddies take turns.
Great learning buddies are kind and helpful.
Great learning buddies are respectful.
Great learning buddies are responsible.

Great learning buddies help each other to achieve their learning goals!

Room 15's learners are amazing! We are checking off goal after goal.

Here are some of the ways we remember our goals and next learning steps:

Here are our writing goals and levels. This display makes it easy to know what we need to work on next.

Everyone in Room 15 has a special Maths card. Look at all those stickers! Miss Molloy's hand gets tired from writing out new maths goals as we achieve the old ones!

Here are some reading, writing and maths goals. Look how many ticks this person has already earned!

Everyone has a special pocket in the window with Maths Knowledge goals. The teachers keep having to make new copies because we achieve them so quickly!

We have a new, four-legged member of Room 15!

What facts do you know about axolotls?

Hungry Hens

We are learning about life cycles. These hungry hens are hiding something!

Thanks for helping us make them, Mrs. Chandler and Pauline! They are so beautiful and bright in our classroom!

Awesome alliteration!

What other words start with the same sound as your name?

Welcome to 2017 in Room 15!

We have had a great start to the year in Room 15! The children are so eager to get right back into their learning. It's also been wonderful to have so many parents and whanau members popping in to school over the last couple of days. We are looking forward to seeing more of you all throughout the coming year!
An extra special welcome to the children and families who are new to Chaucer School. Lovely to have you with us!

An exciting new opportunity for Room 15's amazing learners!

In Room 15 we're starting to use a new tool called Seesaw to share even more of what we're learning in class. Each child has his or her own learning journal, and parents and whanau members can be notified when their child adds new items. It's completely private -- only you can see your child's journal outside of class. If you want to, you can like, comment on or share the items.

The children will be able to add all sorts of different items to their journals. They've already learnt to add photos! We're really excited about this new opportunity for the children to share their learning with you, so please give it a go. 

There are two ways to set this up, depending on whether you want to use the app or the website:

1. Download the Seesaw Parent app onto your smartphone or tablet, then use the device to scan the special QR code they brought home today (it's really easy, I promise - you don't need a special QR scanner or anything!). 


2. Click on to sign up - it takes just 30 seconds. You can then download the Seesaw Parent app for iPhone or Android, or access your child's journal on the web.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Miss Molloy 

Our videos are working now!

Apologies to anyone who's been trying to view our class's videos and having trouble - they should be working now. Enjoy!

Remember last year's 60s Celebrations?

Here's a video by Room 15's 'class of 2015'! You might not recognise them though, most of us haven't seen looks like these for a few decades!

Be Like An Olympic Athlete!

Watch our children share what makes Olympic athletes so successful!

Room 15 sings 'One Call Away' in school assembly

Room 15's Assembly

Today was our assembly. Thank you to all the parents and whanau members who came along to support us - your children did a great job!

 We felt prepared and confident!

 We had beautiful artwork to share! Aren't our fraction creatures lovely and bright? 
We cut our shapes into halves, thirds and quarters to make these.

 Lots of our brave children had turns to talk into the microphone. Well done!
