For our final number we ended on a Christmas note by singing 'Silent Night'. We saw lots of smiles and tears from our elderly audience. That made us feel really proud and happy that our school took time to go and spread some Christmas Cheer by sharing our talents with them.

Bjork wrote this report about working with Matua Hone. When we were with Matua Hone we did things like learning how to play Maori instruments. When we learnt how to play them we played them in a drama about Rangi and Papa and the six brothers and the baby. I had to play the Puririhua and I didn't want Rangi and Papa together (in the story) and when they got separated I went with the Father.
Nathalie wrote this. A few weeks ago we got to have a new teacher called Matua Hone. He was really cool and fun. Matua was here for four weeks. In that four weeks Matua Hone had a drama class. In that drama group there was Lana, Kelly, Chase, Kieran, Isaac, Shania, Samm, Tereina, Bjork, Benita and me. We had to act out this drama for a book called 'The Children of Rangi and Papa'. We all a a character each. Each actor had a special power for example Ruaumoko had earth power and he was me. We all played an instrument each for our background noise. We put the instruments together with our drama and thats how we made our drama.

This is a huge honour for this site, and first we'd like to thank the three sites that nominated us, Mrs Bee from the Super Scoopers, Stephen from the Ins and Outs and Miss W. This is a huge award to be nominated for, we're currently one of three New Zealand sites that have made the short-list, so we'd also like to congratulate the Ins and Outs and Room 17 at Bailey Road School.
But it doesn't end there, some of the other class pages that we've networked with in the past year are also on the short-list including Mr Chamberlain from the USA and Mrs Yollis from Califorina.
You can click here to see the entire list of nominations or click here specifically to see the finalists for Best Educational Use of Video.
Voting Closes on December 14th and only opened today so its a very exciting time for everyone in Room Eight!

Room 8 Dance Collaboration
The Room 7 Super Scoopers are making a collaborative dance with different classes and blogs around the world.
The song they are dancing to is “I Got A Feeling” by “The Black Eyed Peas”. The song is about 3:40 to 3:50 minutes/seconds. There are a lot of people collaborating on this dance, so the dance we are to do should be about 10-15 seconds long.
It is a limited space of time. Just because there isn’t that much time for us, we still have a lot to do practising the dance.
The Room 7 Super Scoopers are doing a live performance in 2 weeks time. They have been skyping with other classes teaching others how to do the dance.
Mr Miller Classroom in Califorina have already completed their contribution to this video, its really worth seeing what they have done and you can view their video by clicking here.
