Jump jam crazy

JUMP JAM is a great and exciting exercise to do in the morning on Friday.  We do loads of dancing to  warm up for the day.  Jump jam has loads of different dancing songs. When we're finished we do a little bit of yoga.

I like JUMP JAM because it is really fun!

I like JUMP JAM because it wams you up for the day.  JUMP JAM is really cool!

The Room 16 Brainiacs

We have had a busy first few weeks getting to know each other and establishing rules and routines in our class.  We have created our class treaty together and formed a class korowai (cloak) with our class rules and school values on it.  Our rules and values were written on strips of card which were then interwoven to create our korowai.  We added some feathers with our names on it to the top of our korowai.  It looks amazing!  We also agreed on a name for our learning class - The Room 16 Brainiacs!
