Welcome Back!

Welcome to Ms. Newman’s second class page! Keep an eye on this page for lots of information and pictures about the exciting learning and fun activities the boys and girls are doing in room 22!

We also have our class twitter page @MsNewman22 don’t forget to give us a follow!


Twisted Hazel Tree

The second class tree is called “The Twisted Hazel”. We have been learning some facts about it this week and we also visited it. It gets its name from its twisted branches! It is a deciduous tree and won’t grow taller than 1.2 meters. We enjoyed visiting the tree and taking a closer look at it. We also made our own twisted hazel trees from pipe cleaners – it was a lot of fun! Look at our pictures….. 


Body Percussion


We had great fun recreating this “Rainstorm” body percussion video by Perpetuum Jazzile. 

I can’t even hear any difference – well done boys and girls!! We used our fingers, hands and knees to create the rain and storm sounds. 

We might not use too many instruments this year but we will find many inventive and save ways to create music 🙂 

Happy listening! 


Roald Dahl Day 

We had a great day celebrating Roald Dahl in room 22 today! It was a sea of yellow in the classroom! We had fun searching for special golden tickets, there were only 6 in the whole school and we had one lucky winner in our class! Well done to Joshua!


We found out lots about Roald Dahls life and did some writing about him. We looked at some of his books and watched some of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The boys and girls also brought home special bookmarks!

What an amazing author who we love to celebrate! Take a look at some of our photos….

Fun in the Sun. 


We are really enjoying being back in school with our friends and teacher. We enjoyed a little break on the equipment and had so much fun! Look at our smiling faces in these photos…
