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NB: I have moved to a new school now so this blog is no longer active.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

Today Tanya came to school and talked to us about communication.

She read us a story about a girl who could not hear without her hearing aides. The story was called "A Screaming Kind of Day". The girl in the story felt frustrated with her brother and mother because she felt like they didn't understand her.

Babies communicate without using words. Nursery Rhymes are a good way to teach babies how to communicate.

While Tanya was here we made up some of our own Nursery Rhymes for Blake...

Here are some of our first attempts

  1. Hi beautiful people! It was so lovely seeing you this week! Blake always loves our visits.
    I LOVED watching the video of your nursery rhymes. They were very cool :)I will have to learn them so I can say them to Blake.
    By the way, your blog is looking great!!
