Ferrymead Trip

Today we stepped back in time to the 1950s and 1960s.  We dressed up in the clothing that some of our grandparents would have worn to school when they were children. We looked gorgeous! 

We enjoyed watching tv in black and white, listening and dancing to the music played on old LP records and playing with the toys and games that the children would have played  with for entertainment . We even made lolly cake using some of the technology from the 50s and 60s.  It was much harder than when we make it at home now!  Check out the slideshow below for some photos of this fabulous day!  

Thank you to all the wonderful parents who transported us to Ferrymead and helped look after us today.  You are awesome!

Decorations for the tree to raise money for charity.

We have been invited to decorate a tree that will be on display at the Waimakariri Council offices. The tree is to help fundraise for two charities. CCS Disability Action and Victim Support North Canterbury.

We have started our reindeer...

What do you think of our cool idea to recycle coffee cups?

Tanya came up with the idea and she came into our class today to help us.
Shiloh came too. Shiloh, who was once a Room 6 student, is now at high school.
Thank you to you both.
We have one more step to finish them off. Yes you guessed! The eyes.
Once we have finished them we will decorate a tree donated by the shops in Good Street.
This tree will be on display at the Waimakariri Council offices.

Do you know any animals that can walk upside down?

On Friday we read poems and sang songs about spiders.  We were really interested in how spiders can walk upside down!   
What other insects can walk on ceilings and walls?  Take a walk around your house, can you find any?  There is a a small reptile that can walk upside down . See if you can find out what it is?

Lesley visited again today.

When Lesley visits we always learn something new about recycling.

Today she taught us how to make flowers out of old newspaper or chip packets.
We found it quite tricky. Once we really knew what to do we helped each other.
Thank you again Lesley for coming to our school.

Pyjamas in the pool!

What fun at the pool today.
As it was our last swimming lesson we had fun wearing our pyjamas in the water.

We were told what to do if we were in the water with clothes on!

 Look at us in our life jackets too.

A big thank you to all of the parents who gave up their time to help us over the last 11 weeks.
