Last week, Room 17 were making marble tracks (so is the whole Middle Syndicate) , we still are. I made a marble track with Rebecca and ours is called 'HORROR TRACK' because it is always falling apart and because of the black paint it has and the dull colours.
In our topic, we are talking to a class in the USA. They are kids from Sportsville, Virginia. There school is called Ni River Middle School. They are year 7 students as well. We have sent them letters so they will know a little bit about us. Now we are doing projects in groups about New Zealand, the flag, native birds and the National Anthem and many more. I am in the native birds group and we are writing about the New Zealand native bird, which is the kiwi, we are going to use powerpoint to do it.
For reading, we were studying about snow and hail and how it is formed. I am doing How Hail is Formed. Hail is kind of like snow because it goes up and down in the the clouds becase wind pushes it back up because it is so light, but when it gets heavy enough to drop down from the sky to the ground then it drops and that is how hail is formed.
In maths we are learning about place value and number line.
