Getting to know each other in Room 10

During the first couple of weeks of the year we have been spending time developing and building relationships between one another. Although we have no new students to Grange in our class this year, some of us have not been in the same class with other students for a couple of years. Here are some activities we have undertaken over the first 2 weeks of school that have helped us share information about each other.

Room 10’s ‘app’ealing world

As a class we created our own “apps” for ipads that included information about ourselves.

We were given an ipad template and our task was to create 9 ‘apps’ that could help people learn more about ourselves. Some apps were:

ifamily

ibooks

imovies

ipets

isports

ifriends

We wrote down some interesting facts relating to each app that we created. We then had to create an icon to match each app. Our ipads are dislayed outside the classroom and we have enjoyed looking at each others apps and learning about each other.

Living Museum

On Friday of week 1 we held a ‘living museum’ in our classroom. All the students spent the first week deciding on 5-6 items they could bring from home that best represented themselves. Everyone had to create labels which had some information about each item and why they are special to us. We also had to think about how we would display the items on our table space so that everybody could see what we bought in. A special mention must go to Kayne who made his own stands for some of his items, they looked great! On the Friday before lunch, the living museum was open and everyone quietly walked around reading and viewing the displays. Mrs. Baldwin really enjoyed this activity and she learnt a lot about the students in her class. There are so many talented musicians and sports people in room 10 this year!

Figure me out!

Our math’s task for the first week was creating a poster of ourselves using some math’s equations. We were given 9 questions to answer about ourselves such as:

What is your show size?

How many people in your family?

How many pets do you own?

What date were you born on?

What street number do you live at?

We also had to create a question on our own. We needed to answer these questions by writing a math’s equation. We could use addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions or any other mathematical symbol that we felt confident in using to solve each question. This was a great way for all students to show what math’s they feel confident in using in a creative manner. It was great to see some students use decimals and even squared numbers! We then had to draw ourselves in the middle of the poster and place flip cards around the picture. People can now read the question on the flip card, solve it and then flip the card over to read the answer. After reading all the answers you can then have a guess who the person is!

All these activities reflect Grange Primary’s school values in some way.

Identity

Students shared some information about themselves which resembles their identity.

Diversity

We have a very diverse bunch of students in room 10. People from different backgrounds and cultures have come together and formed our own family in the classroom with sharing, listening and learning interesting things about each other.

Friendship

We have been building friendships and relationships in the classroom by getting to know each other and sharing information in a safe and trusting environment.

Respect

We respected each others property during the living museum. We also respect peoples different opinions and interests during sharing time about each other. Everybody is different and enjoys different hobbies, sports and other activities and it is wonderful that we can share these with each other.

Enjoyment

We have all enjoyed getting to know each other over the past 2 weeks including Mrs Baldwin!

 

We look forward to continue to grow and learn about each other over the year and develop new and existing friendships between one another! Well done to Room 10 for being brave and sharing all these wonderful facts about each other!
