Term 4 Week 1

This week we have had the Life Education truck and Harold visiting us. We learnt about what feelings are, what makes us special and unique and how we can tell what others are feeling. 
On Thursday we participated in the Nationwide shake out drill. From this Room 6 read and explored the Quaky Cat book and wrote stories about how Tiger felt in the earthquake. This linked in really well with our focus on feelings during our Harold visit. 
We also visit Merle Leask Kindy and had a great time playing with the students who will be starting in Room 6 soon. 
We have been learning about electricity. We had an amazing time making circuits with our special electronic kits.

Term 2 Week 1

We have had a great start to term 2. There are many exciting things we are going to be learning about this term including, cross country, road safety, hockey training, storytelling, the Junior Production and many many more. 

The first story we are learning about this term is "The Three Little Pigs". We enjoyed listening to Miss Patrick act out the story and quickly joined in and helped her with the actions. We have made the 3 pigs houses and love being able to act out the story in class. 
 We are having weekly hockey lessons for the first 5 weeks of this term. We are getting lots better at keeping our sticks on the ground and having the correct holding position. 
This term the Juniors are putting on a Production. We have been given our scripts and have already started to learn the songs. We have been brainstorming about what each of our different characters might wear.
