The class in Holland took a look at our Blog to answer our questions. They also had a look at our recent collaboration movie and decided to make the tallest tower in their class too! Have a look at what they made. We think it's great that our learning is happening across the world as well.
(We can't read the words but it really doesn't matter).

Answers from Holland! from Emma Martin on Vimeo.
Last term we did some thinking and asked questions about life in Holland. The children from Oscar's auntie's class have answered them for us. This is what we found out. We learned heaps about life in Holland through our inquiry. This term we have promised to make a movie of our clog dance so share on the Blog for them to see.

Collaboration Towers from Emma Martin on Vimeo.
I gave the children a challenge. Build the tallest tower. They made mistakes, gave in, got upset or bossed everyone! All good ways to learn when you reflect on it. We talked about what collaboration looks like and sounds like, then tried again. The towers got built and everyone felt valued. Take a look....

Holland questions from Emma Martin on Vimeo.
Room 11 are following an inquiry into life in Holland. We are learning a cultural dance and have lots of questions. We are hoping that Oscar's aunty will watch this with her class over in Holland and answer some of our wonderings/questions. It might be tricky as we know they speak Dutch in Holland and she will need to translate.

Super Heroes from Emma Martin on Vimeo.
Room 11 have been out and about at Morning Tea and Lunchtimes dressed as a Super Hero.
Our school motto is "Doing good - because good is good to do!" We wear the "cape of goodness" and the "mask of goodness" to help us to remember to care for others and our school. We think we look pretty cool and are learning that doing good for others makes us feel great!

Super heroes from Emma Martin on Vimeo.
Mrs. Bennett worked with the children last week and they had to describe a Super hero. They illustrated them and they are now published on our Writing wall. This gave me an idea about what it takes to be a super hero and how we can make small differences at school. More to follow with this idea ...

Wobbly people from Emma Martin on Vimeo.
Take a look at our finished people that we shared at Celebration. These are now on our classroom wall. The children had so much fun making them and worked independently learning new skills. We also learnt a body parts song in maori which we shared at Celebration.
