Spring is here

The sun was shining, the blossoms were out. What a day to get out of the classroom and enjoy something different.Today we learnt to sketch, remembering to push nice and lightly on the paper. We sketched a blossom tree. Firstly we talked about what it looks like, and all the different lines we could see. How the branches crossed over each other and it looked like a big knot!
We then took a snippet of our sketch and coloured it with pastel - then adding blossoms to the branches.















The Taniwha's Quest


Wow! We have had such a busy term in preparation for our production and it was an absolute ripper! 
I couldn't be more happier with how the children went and with all the help that you put in, in order to make this amazing 3-4 minutes on stage, utterly fantastic!!!

The children are still asking "when will be practicing our dance?" It was that could, and they never once complained, they still want to be doing it.

Below is a slideshow of some photos taken prior to the production with all the children in costume! Check it out!!






Hullabaloo at the Zoo



We have had a great week reading our big book "Hullabaloo at the Zoo". A poor man lives right next to a zoo. The animals have so much fun one night where they sing and dance and make such a hullabaloo. This poor man cannot get in touch with the Zoo keeper.

Some fantastic writing has come from reading this book, and we also had a lot of fun making masks and acting out the story!

Congratulations to EVERYONE for such an amazing effort with Cross Country!

We all ran out little legs off and did such an amazing job!

We all enjoyed the training leading up to Cross Country and we have wanted to keep it going. Every day we have been enjoying the sun shine by getting out and doing fitness. Even Miss Tubbs joins in with us! 

Congratulations to our top 3 boys. James, Rowan then Mika!!


Congratulations to our top 3 girls. Karen, Suzie then Olivia!!



GO MIKA

Go Logan - you can catch Mika! 




Boys feeling nervous and excited before the start of their race!! Miss Tubbs told us to feel nervous is a good thing. 


Watch out Connor - Rowan is going to get you!

Unfortunately there are no photos of the girls, as Miss Tubbs was running with them. 

Our little gardens

Room 2 and 3 took advantage of the beautiful sun and got together to plant seeds in recycled bottles.

First we decorated the bottles with newspaper, then learnt about how to plant and care for seeds. 
We talked about how we need to water our seeds and that they need sun to help them grow.

We filled our bottled pots with potting mix and sprinkled our seeds over top, watering them just a little bit.

We are now excited to watch them grow.
















Te Tuhi Class trip

Te Tuhi was full of colour and so much fun!!

We were lucky to have Jeremy who taught us about the colour wheel and showed us the HUGE statue and what it was made for.

I like the statue - Rowan

I liked making colour wheels - Connor + Logan

I loved the steam coming out of the trailer - Eve

It was awesome having my mum come with me, she got me a treat from the cafe - Annabelle D

Here are a few photos from the day.




Mika taking so much care in his colour wheel! Well done.
