The Best Part of Me…

Last week Room 5 were challenged to think about what the best part of them was. They had to brainstorm ideas about why this part was useful/helpful/amazing to them. Our learning intention was to use descriptive language to engage our audience.

Here are 8 Room 5 members who wanted to share their awesome writing with you. Make sure you come into Room 5 to check out our writing in person!

Class Treaty

This year Room 5 have been working collaboratively on our class treaty.

1st in groups or on our own we came up with a visual idea for our treaty. Next we pitched our idea to the class and we each got to vote on the one we wanted.

Jack and Lukasz were selected as the Treaty managers as their idea received the most votes. Their idea was a promise garden with a flowers, a pond and a tree. In the tree is a bee hive with 22 bees. Each bee was to be created by each member of Room 5 to represent themselves. The promises are written on flowers so that the bee’s (the members of Room 5) could pick up the promise ‘pollen’ and pollinate our class.

Jack and Lukasz decided that even though they won the vote they wanted everyone to feel included so they allowed space for people to add their own personal touch to the treaty. We wrote up all the components of the treaty that needed to be made and Jack and Lukasz listened to what each person wanted to work on.

We spent the last few weeks working in groups to complete our part of the treaty. The treaty has evolved into a massive collaborative class mural that showcases our uniqueness, creatively and team work.

Below are some photos we have taken during the treaty making process. Make sure to visit Room 5 and check out our master piece.
