Zoo Trip

Last week we went to Hamilton Zoo
We had such a great time and Anna filmed some of the animals. 
We have made it into a movie to help remind us of our trip. 

What was your favourite animal at the zoo?

Get Firewise

Room 5 has been learning about Firewise. We know how to be safe around fires and we also know what to do if there is a fire at our house or school.
Get down, Get low, Get out FAST!

We had a special visit from Steve who is a fire fighter. He reminded us all about being Firewise and safe.

We even showed him a book we have made about being Firewise.
You can read our book by clicking on the photo below.

Connected Film Festival

Last week was the first Connected Film Festival
Lots of classes from around Hamilton made movies.
Even some classes from Hamilton East School made movies.

Take a look at the website - move your mouse across the top and you will see a drop down box. Then you can choose which schools movies you want to see.
Room 5 has really loved watching the movies.
Lots of them make us laugh. We particularly like the ones from Cambridge Middle School, Southwell School and Vardon School
AND of course we love the ones from Hamilton East School too.

Sam's Plan

Yesterday Sam made an amazing vaccuum with the mobilo. She thought you could use this amazing vaccuum to suck up rats. Sam thought it would be great to use the rats and make them into reusable fuel. 

Take a look at the movie of Sam explaining her amazing idea -

We went on a walk around our school and we were very lucky to see a tui up close. It is pretty hard to see the tui in our photos. We couldn't believe it when it flew into the tree above us.

We don't think you'll  be able to to see the tui in this movie but you can hear it sing. 
We love listening to the tui.
