Today I told all of my lovely students to bring in a blanket. We then made tents and forts in the classroom for the students to work in. The students loved it and came up with names for their tents. In the afternoon we had a massive tent battle where the students had to throw paper balls everywhere. I could not believe the mess! It was so worth it though and we all had so much fun being a little bit silly.

Room 8 is a little bit crazy so we decided to have a crazy hair day. The students who turned up to school with " normal hair" were quickly attacked with hair ties and rubber bands until we were all looking perfectly crazy and weird(just the way Miss Buchanan likes it!).

This term Piha is looking at New Zealand art, focusing on artist Warren Pohatu. We were so lucky to be able to have him come into our classroom and show us his art and explain how he created it. The students got to have a go at exploring with colors and different techniques to create their own Warren Pohatu Artwork.

Room 8 has been lucky enough to get brand new furniture for our classroom. This new furniture allows the children to choose how they will work and caters for different learning needs. I am so impressed with how well the children have been using and respecting the furniture!

Today the students began brainstorming ideas for their group productions. They could do it on anything they wanted...which made it very hard for them to decide and agree upon one idea! I am super excited to see the students follow the process of making their own productions.

"Lights, camera, action!" Miss Buchanan says as I walk on stage/
front of class. "This, is American Idol!" I say to the audience.
Then the music starts. Fire-flies, I think in my head. 21 seconds
has past, start talking Lana, I think to my self. Hi I am Ryan
Seacreast and I will be your host for tonight. My group is
Lauryn, Samantha, Paige, Colleen and I. Our last song comes on.
Baby, baby, baby oh! Then I dance, "Ha ha ha ha!" everyone starts
laughing. A light flashes in my eyes, finally! The movie has stopped.
We all bow while ht audience claps. We sit down. "That was fun!"
My group and I say. Then the next group go's on the stage.
