The Year that Was--Room 5 2008 ( Part 4)

In the second term, we were learning about the things that can fly. ( UP, UP, AND AWAY). For the purpose of immersion, the students of Pt. England School had the opportunities of seeing a real hot air balloon. In the same week, a police helicopter also landed on our school rugby field. This was very beneficial to the children's learning as we saw a lot of good oral language and writings as a result of these events. We had recorded this event in a movie!

Did you know that in Hamilton in the Waikato they have a famous balloon festival every year? I will take some photo's in 2009 and post them on my site!

Hi Guys,
Will you be continuing on with this blog in 09 or changing to a new site?

Hi Sue!
This blog will continue but there will be a different set of students in Room 5. Thanks for visiting and do continue to do so as soon as we start our new term.

Wow! A hot air balloon? That's certainly something! I have rode in one before and it is certainly a thrill. I hope you have a happy new year!

I really like the way you've embedded these videos into your blog, but I am having some trouble with it and can't find the answer on edublogs. If you have a moment please email me at thanks.
