Enviro jobs parker

          Enviro leader for room 6 is Parker Kennedy


                  Parker Kennedy has worked very hard to earn 20 enviro stickers. 
In room 6 we do enviroment jobs and we have table leaders that direct the enviroment jobs and give         
                                                            out stickers.
The person who works the hardest in doing enviroment jobs get rewarded a sticker and Parker has worked very hard to get 20 enviroment stickers which earns him a certificate, a sticker, a prize and                                           the honor of being named honory enviro leader of room 6.

                         We all look up to Parker because he is such a great role model.

Govett Brewster: Animation

                                    Govett Brewster
Room 6 went on an amazing trip to Govett Brewster
to learn about Len Lye’s history and animation.
We looked at some of Len Lye’s movies and
how he created them. After the tour around Govett Brewster we made little animation strips out of paper. We put stickers on  and we also drew some picture on the paper then we put them in a zoetrope. When we spun the zoetrope around on its base, we could see the animation in action while looking through slots on the base of the machine. We had the best time!

Interschool Rugby Year 5-6

Interschool Rugby Year 5-6
Year 5-6 have been playing rugby against other schools.
We have played the following schools:
St Joseph
St John Bosco
Frankley School
Coastal Taranki

We have won all of our games so far. Now we’re going to the semi finals.
We’ve scored over 60 in all of our games, Some of Oakura’s players were on Coastal for the game because they didn’t have enough players to form a team. Well done Lucas, Niwa, Owain and Zach for stepping up and having fun!
We can’t wait until the semi finals!

Rippa Rugby:Mixed team

  Rippa Rugby:Mixed team
On May the 9th Oakura Black,White,Red and Aces travelled to Vogeltown Park to play in a rippa rugby tournament. All the teams played really well. There were about 50 students from the year 5/6 block playing in the tournament.

At the park all the teams played 5 games to see what team was the best in each pool. The Oakura Black and White won their pools. Oakura Red was unfortunate, but still got second to St John Bosco.

Well done to all the teams! Congrats for your hard effort!:)

Room 6 Board Games !!!!!!

Room 6 Board Games !!!!!!


In room 6 we have been making board games to go along with our “Leisure and Pleasure” topic. We started by planning on what the board games were going to be called, how to play them and what they were going to look like. Then we started on the real thing. We got big pieces of paper and got to work! We have been having fun colouring, drawing and some of us have even been playing our fun and challenging games. Thank you for visiting room 6’s blog. I hope you enjoyed reading about the making of RM 6’S board games.

Enviro jobs/Rubbish

                                 By Hannah.

            At the end of the day R6 does Enviro jobs.
              Each table group does a different job.
Some people go outside and pick up rubbish, we pick up rubbish in front of R6, R7, R8 and on the playground, then we come back inside and do a rubbish report. Sometimes it’s really bad like 37 or 28 pieces of collected rubbish. But it’s not like this all the time it’s normally 13 or 10 pieces.
            We try to keep tidy, but we need to work on it.

On Thursday 4th May, Room 6 was privileged to have Lisa from the DEAF Aotearoa organisation teach us some basic sign language skills. She was a lot of fun and we were certainly challenged to use our observation skills. We all received a booklet showing the signs for the alphabet and are learning how to say our names in sign language.

Room 6 Values Wall

Check out our Values Wall! We worked really hard at noticing when our class members were displaying perseverance, respect and honesty during Term 1.  We managed to reach our goal and fill the wall with notes about our actions. Way to go Room 6!

Our Garden

Check out our brainstorming ideas regarding what we wanted to plant in our shared garden. We got together with Kauri Room (our buddies) and came up with some yummy vege choices. We ended up planting cabbage, lettuce and broccoli. We can't wait to eat and share our produce.

Room 6 Values Wall

In Room 6, we are focusing on our three school values:

  • Respect
  • Perseverence
  • Honesty

Everytime a class member displays one of the values it will be noted and put on our values wall. We hope to fill the wall up with loads of VALUES by the end of the term. Below are pictures of the class discussing each value. A picture will be posted of the wall at the end of the term so you can see the success in using our values everyday.
