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NB: I have moved to a new school now so this blog is no longer active.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 :)

Roots of Empathy Blake is 7 months

Wow! Look how much Baby Blake has grown! He can lie on his front and he is NEARLY crawling!

He showed us how he can display many more emotions now. When babies cry it is interesting to see how other people around them react. There were many emotions going on in our class when Blake was upset!

When he felt safe he showed us how clever he is getting. He managed to get a toy out of the fishtank. We were so impressed with his learning and we can't wait to see him again!
