Knit World on Victoria Street very kindly donated lots of scarves to our school so we can be warm this winter. We wanted to thank them so wrote thank you cards. After a process of draft writing, best copy then publishing, we created a thank you book.

All writing, illustrations and publishing created by Room 16 Hamilton East School.

Strike Percussion

We loved the Strike Percussion performance at our school today. 

Whaea Eve and Mrs O'Neill got to have a drum solo!

Before the show we thought about all the different instruments that we might see in the percussion performance. Afterwards we remembered the instruments that were actually in the show. 

We learnt that percussion includes lots of drums and drumming! 

Read below some of the great writing Room 16 produced
after the show:

I sat down. Suddenly I heard a big loud bang! It was so loud I thought that symbols were next to my ear. 

At the percussion show I felt the drumming. It felt like an earthquake. 

I was on the stage and my heart was beating deep and sharp. It felt as if something was swallowing me.

When they played the drums I could feel thunder in my body.

I thought that they were going to burn each other. How did they make the fire shoot off the stick?

I liked the drumming. It felt like a car crash.

Room 16 performs What I am

In Friday's Positive Assembly Room 16 performed a new song to the school. It is the What I am song from Seseme Street. It is a fun song that encourages us to be stronger and be the best you that you can be. We made up the actions to the song and hope you enjoy watching it.
