This is the last post from this blog page. The children in this class move on to Year 3 in the new year 2013.
I have been delighted to be able to show some of the activities these Room 2 children have done on our blog page. I hope you have enjoyed seeing their work.

 I am also leaving the school and moving to another area of Auckland to retire from teaching. 

I caught up with some of the children that I had in Year 2 in 2008. These children have been Year 6s this year and are now leaving Botany Downs School to move on to different Intermediate Schools in the area next year. We had a photo together before we all go our different ways.

Goodbye to you all.

Shakeout - Earthquake drill

Today we practised an earthquake drill. It was at 9.26am. We had to drop, cover, hold. Lots of other people in New Zealand were doing the practice at the same time. We are glad it wasn't a real earthquake.

ML's Flat Stanley has been to Scotland

ML's Flat Stanley has had a wonderful trip to Scotland. He arrived back home last Saturday and has been resting since then, after his long trip folded up on an envelope. ML was so excited to read about his adventures with her friend Callum.

Junior Cross Country

CW and TT lead the way
On Friday we were lucky to have great weather for the Junior Cross-country. The Room 2 children all ran very well with both boys and girls coming in the first three children home. CW won the year 2 boys race, and ML won the Year 2 girls race. Well done all of you. You all did your best and can be very proud of yourselves.
