Breezy Summer days...

During this hot humid weather we've been having, we decided that because we couldn't go to the beach, then we'd bring the beach to Room 11!

We used mixed media to give our art a 3D effect. First we ripped coloured 
paper and layered it up like waves and then we did the same to textured 
paper to imitate sand.

Next we designed and coloured in our 'Kiwi Summer Jandals', then we glued then onto corrugated card. Lastly we glued the sandals on to the 'sand'.

Look at our materpieces!

Team work and Problem solving skills...

Last week Room 11 did some team building games to learn to work collaboratively and get to know one another.




First they were asked to stand inside a circle of rope that was big enough for them all to fit inside of. Easy!


Then...

Mrs Nelson made the circle of rope smaller and they had to figure 
out a way of all standing and fitting inside the circle. 
This was getting tricky!


It took a bit of problem solving and some clever thinking 
but they got there in the end. Well done!

Human knots


Next we went outside and worked in small groups to try 
and un-knot ourselves from our eachother.


It took a couple of attempts of knotting and un-knotting ourselves but eventually we solved this problem and worked together.



Well done Room 11. You didn't give up and worked well together!
