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NB: I have moved to a new school now so this blog is no longer active.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

After School News Crew Week 3


  1. great reporting, keep up the good work :)

  2. The national young leaders' day sounds really cool. Well done guys!!! btw William the weather man rules!

  3. Thank you for the weekly news/weather update team. keep up the good work.

  4. Hi Room 12,
    We enjoyed your latest news report.
    Things we thought were great: you used fantastic expression when reading your news reports, William the Weather Man had lots of personality and was funny, we like the transitions between each report, we liked the language and words you used, for example you did not use 'and' all the time.
    Tips for next time: some of the voices were a bit hard to understand because the mic seemed to distort, maybe slow down just a bit when you read your script, use a bit more eye contact when reading your script.

    We have questions!
    We are interested in your microphone. Is it a wireless mic with no cord?
    Are you using a tripod for the camera or is someone holding it?

    Overall, great report! Keep it up.

    From Middle K and Mr KT
