We are creating collage art this week to help jump start our new inquiry into the human muscular system. If you have any old or used magazines, which you are happy to get rid of, we would love to have them in Room 11 by this Wednesday morning. Thank you in advance. Images of the art we create with your old reading material will appear here on the blog in the near future.
If you are wanting to take a screenshot on a Chromebook, iPad or Windows 7 computer watch the short videos below.

The rugged explorers from Rooms 11 and 12 are back from the bush after an incredible week in the Uruwera. Facing up to physical challenges and pushing themselves to new personal limits, 44 amazing AMS students and 14 superb parent helpers helped create some lifetime memories. More detail will follow once we are back at school, but in the meantime a taster of the Kaitawa experience can be enjoyed in the slideshow below.

Rooms 11 and 12 have been embracing the wilderness challenge of Camp Kaitawa, conquering heights and exploring depths in their quest to explore the beautiful outdoors of the Lake Waikaremoana area. So far we have been up through the bush to Lou’s lookout, where we marveled at the incredible views of Lake Waikaremoana, around Green Lake, up the long winding track to the lake at the summit, Lake Waikareiti and through the caverns, cracks and overhangs of the Onepoto caves. Our explorer’s spirit has been kindled and we are hungry for more.
