Mike King – I am hope

Two weeks ago we were really lucky to have Mike King visit our school to talk about his message ‘I am hope’.  I want you to blog about this special assembly. Please start with an introduction for people who read your blog and were not at the assembly-  you will need to explain who Mike King is, what his message was and why he is visiting schools.

I also want you to write about what you learned, or will remember from his talk with us.

I’ve included a couple of picture of Mike and one of Amber who was lucky enough to win one of the ‘I am hope’ T shirts. Maybe you could do some research and find some pictures of your own to insert into your post. Or even take a photo of your ‘I am hope’ bracelet to insert.


Technology at OIS

We are really lucky to have technology classes at OIS – Hard Materials, Digitech, Food and Fabric and Art. I have been learning about Seesaw which is a digital tool for sharing learning with others. Luckily Room 5 students are already familiar with using Seesaw in their technology classes. I have asked them to share their learning journeys from technology on their blogs – check out these two below, and make sure you have a look at all the other class blogs.

Ben at hard materials.

Sommer – final outcome at hard materials.

Swimming sports 2018

Well, we had a great day for our swimming sports last Friday. I was very impressed with all the room 5 students who got in and earned points for their house. Even I swam, but unfortunately the teachers were just pipped at the post this year.  Well done to Rata for winning the swimming sports too.

I would like you to blog about your experience of the day. What did you enjoy? How did you feel? Were you nervous? Was it better or worse than you expected? Remember that your blog will be read by people that were not at our sports day, so you need to make sure you explain fully what happens.
