AJ the music video star!

Our very own AJ is breaking into the media world with his first appearance in a music video!  He was chosen along with a group of children to be in Annah Mac's latest song called 'Bucket'.  Check it out for yourself in the YouTube clip above.  AJ is wearing a pirate costume with a red bandana tied around his head...see if you can spot him!

Letter writing!

As part of our unit of inquiry on communication we wrote individual letters to children at another school...and the other day we all received some letters back!  It was very exciting to get our very own letter addressed to us and to find out some more information about our new friends in room 9!  We spent some time reading them and sharing them with our buddies in class.  Next up we will be sending emails to room 9 and comparing and contrasting the different ways of communicating.

JLC breakfast!

Over a week all the JLC classes took part in a breakfast event!  We got to wear our pyjamas to school, make our own breakfast (toast, cereal and fruit), wash and dry our dishes, brush our teeth and get dressed ready for the rest of the day!  It was such a fun morning and everyone ate soooooo much!!  What a great way to start the day!

Wacky hair day!

Look at our wacky hair!!  It was wacky hair day for our term 3 mufti day and we could wear a crazy hat or make our hair wacky for the day!  We wish we could wear our hair like that every day!!

Our trip to the NZ Herald!

As part of our communication inquiry we went on a trip to see the NZ Herald get printed.  We were shown around the whole factory and saw the printing plates being made, the printing presses running, the quality checks being done, the stacking and packing of the papers and even saw robots in action!  The robots are used to get the big rolled reams of paper to print on - they weigh over a ton so people cannot lift them!  One of the robots was called Ricky which is AJ and Hiro's brothers names!  It was really fun and interesting to see all the machines in action.
