On Friday the junior teachers went away for an hour and a half leaving their children in the capable hand's of their buddy class. Room 7 and Room 15 decided to ditch the colouring in and maths games, instead spending the morning building four massive huts using whatever they could find in the classroom. Was it chaos? Yes. Did it make an enormous mess? Absolutely. Was it fun? You bet! Judge for yourselves.
Give a bunch of Room 7 kids during buddy time in the library a camera, and what do you get? That's right... selfies!
This week the class won Round 3 of 'Mr Walker vs Room 7' and their reward was cleaning the teacher's cars.
Mrs Fowler, Mrs Robson and Mr Walker's car were selected and the class was split into three. It very soon became a competition as to who could get their vehicle the shiniest!
To make matters interesting it began to rain heavily. Room 7 felt that this in fact made the whole experience better as it's not every day you get to be drenched at school. And so... we continued
Eventually Mr Ogsten was called in as an impartial judge and he ruled that Mrs Fowler's car (in red) was the cleanest!
Here a few pics of our wet (wet) afternoon's activities!
Room 7 after recording their first (studio?) times table rap album are looking for new inspiration. Well we now need look no further than Y.N.Richkids and their new single My Kids. If anything has swag it is this.
If you love this then you can head over to their official website by clicking here and you can download all of their albums at the moment for free. Amazing!
With no great introduction, ceremony or clever commentary we present to you, for your learning pleasure... Room 7's Times Table Raps. Let us know what you think. We'd love to hear from you!
Today Room 7 recorded their very own times table rap CD. Each group laid down a beat and then recorded their set table. Some had intros and outros. All sounded amazing! We are going to edit and mix them down over the next few days and they will be all up and ready to download from our blog by the weekend. Here are some pics of our rappers caught in flight in our high-tech (classroom) studio!
