Our Olden Day Comics

On Wednesday Room 9 used "Comic Life" to make some comics.

We used the pictures of us dressed up in olden day clothes. Then we added speech bubbles to our pictures. We had to pretend that we were olden day people. We had to write what we would say in the speech bubbles.

We got dressed up!

Yesterday Room 9 went to the Nelson Museum to visit the very special "Unpicking the Past" exhibition.

It was absolutely fantastic and we had an amazing time. The best part was getting to dress up in olden-day style clothing! We have some stories and a video that we will be working on about our visit. For now; check out our photos below!

Goodbye Emma

Today is Emma's last day with Room 9 at Nelson Central School.

We recorded some little video clips with our messages to Emma. We have really enjoyed having her teach us over the last 5 weeks.

Take a look at our video to view our messages:

World Environment Day

Did you know World Environment Day is coming up on Thursday the 5th of June??

Room 9 has been getting ready to celebrate this special day (which is also on the same day as Matariki in New Zealand). In groups, last week, we made some fantastic posters with some messages on them that we want people to take notice of.

Our posters are going to be displayed on Thursday around the outside of our school, with all the other class' posters for all of the Nelson Community to see.

Check out our awesome posters in the photo slideshow below!
