Busy, busy fun days at school.

We are learning about so many different things.
Claire and Luci are teaching us how to speak Mandarin.
Claire comes every Friday. 
So far we know how to say hello, thank you, Mum, Dad and I love you.

Today Sarah arrived with two chrysalises.
We will watch them closely to discover what happens next.

At the Discovery area we have things that may  spin.
Will they all spin?
We are checking it out.

Our white hats were on today when we discussed Giraffes.
We know quite a lot.

We enjoyed our poem too.

What do you think of our pencil drawings?
We used a photo of a giraffe to expand upon.

So you see we are involved in so many different activities.
We are enjoying everything.

Floating and Sinking...

Discovery time today was interesting.
We sorted things that we think will float or sink.
Water went everywhere!  

Later at Language Experience time we talked about yachts.
We made a yacht full of adjectives.

Check out our yachts.
We used driftwood for the hull and mast.
Our sails are coloured brightly using our drawing pencils and crayons.

We put them in the water tray to see if they would float.
What a brilliant morning!

Learning Basic Words

We have been using our magic word wands to find words we are learning.
We are all getting very good at finding words we are focussed on.

Magnetism and Spiders today

In our discovery area we have set up a collection of items for us to decide if they are magnetic or not magnetic.

During our Discovery time today we also had some fun choices.
Check them out.

Later during our Language Experience time we looked at Incy Wincy Spider.
Our spiders look great.

Then we used our white hats to make a list of facts about spiders.

Beach Education at Waikuku beach.

The Waikuku Lifeguards talked to us about being sun smart and keeping safe in the water.

Fern was dressed as a Lifeguard!

We checked out the life raft.

We played in the sand.

A huge thank you to the parents who came to support us on the beach and in the water.

We have been using the Maths Duplo to build a variety of things.
Bridges, planes and trains.
We discussed all types of vehicles today.

Next we had to decide which vehicle we would make.
A train or a plane.
Once it was built we added people and a number tile to match how many!

This afternoon we played Who am eye?
Can you guess who we are?

We have been talking about friends and how we behave with each other.
Look at what we think a good classmate is!

Awesome adjectives to describe ourselves...

We thought hard about the words that best describe us.
Our friends helped and suggested what was the best fit.
Well done everyone.
