Our Blog

We are a year 5/6 (9-10 year olds) class from Bairds Mainfreight Primary School in Auckland, NZ.

You can see some of our learning that took place in Room 12 in 2010 and 2011.

NB: I have moved to a new school now so this blog is no longer active. You are still welcome to comment and look at the great fun we had over the past two years.

Thank you for all the lovely comments :)

Horton Hatches the Egg!

Horton is our symbol for persistence because:

When he was cold in the winter he stayed on the egg.
He stood up for himself when his friends teased him and he kept going
He looked after the egg and kept his promise
Even when he felt sea-sick he never gave up
He refused to run away even when he was feeling scared
He made it his mission to keep the egg warm
When he saw his egg hatch he felt proud, special and happy.

Maisy is our symbol for what is NOT persistent because

Said she needed a rest and she gave up
She played in the sun
She ate ice-cream instead of doing her job
She went to the circus
She wanted the egg back after someone else had done the hard work
