Well we are now three weeks into our first term of 2011 and we have been very very very busy.
Week two started with a monumentous event. WE FINALLY GOT OUR NETBOOKS! It was so exciting and we had so much to learn about how to use them. Although we really only wanted to play the cool games, we had to learn how to use them for their real purpose, which is as a learning tool. We liked school before but we love it now. Mr Marks is always surprised how early we get to school, to get online as soon as possible.
There will be more to come about our Netbooks.
So what else have we been doing in Room 15?
Every Thursday we learn how to play baseball with our awesome coach Cola. How lucky are we to be playing in such a beautiful setting.
We have started art with Mrs M.
But wait there's more...

Well, we are into our second week of school here at Pt England School and man have we been busy.
On day one we got to meet our new family in room 15 for 2011, which includes 14 girls and 15 boys aged either 8 or 9 years old. When we got to class we had to do a lot of listening which was tiring after 6 weeks of holidays. We played some games and got to know each other as well as getting straight into some writing and maths. Our brains were exploding by the end of the day, Mr Marks included.
Over the rest of the week we worked really hard on our Maths, Reading and Writing so that by Friday we had earned an afternoon of playing capture the flag in the sun. We all learnt how to get online and open our google docs, send emails and create some awesome hyper studio images.
The best thing so far though, happened on the second Monday and you will have to wait to hear all about it...
In the meantime, why don't you check out our individual blogs in the sidebar which we will be updating shortly.
