Week 4

We had a great time at PE lessons on Friday. We are getting a lot better at making a cup to catch the ball. 
This weeks shared reading book is called "Elephant Is Stuck". We thought about ways we could help the Elephant get out of the hole. 
 Finally we have a Butterfly. Room 6 loved watching it hatch and setting it free outside.

Week 3

We have been working very hard on our maths. This week we have been learning to count groups of numbers by one to one matching. 
 We are loving learning about The Hungry Caterpillar story. Miss Patrick was so proud of our story maps that we all went to see Mr Wheeler for quality work awards. We also photo copied them so we could take them home to us present the story to our whānau. 
 On Wednesday we had a fantastic day visiting Merle Leask Kindergarten. We love spending time with the new students who will be starting in Room 6 this year.

Week 2

We have been working extremely hard each day to learn our alphabet names and sounds. Look at our fantastic 'r's'. 

We loved making these gorgeous butterflies from paper collage. They look fantastic on our Room 6 walls.

2019 - Term 1 - Week 1

2019 Term 1
Welcome back to everyone. We have had a very hot, but great start to the term. 

This term we are learning about "The Life Cycle". The first animal we have been learning about is caterpillars. We are loving watching them get bigger and bigger. We were very lucky that on Friday Mrs Doak found us some more swan plants for them. Thank you!
This week we have been working really hard on writing our numbers the correct way. 
The Juniors started Discovery learning this week. We all had a fantastic time discovering and learning with different students in different classrooms. 
Thank you to Mrs O who organised a fantastic water play afternoon. We all had a blast. It was great to see lots of parents and family members at school helping. 
Our shared reading book for this week was "Little Goat's Coat". We loved making some Goats on Friday with real wool. We were very good at retelling the story in order to Mrs Duffell. These are on display outside Mr Wheelers office if anyone would like to have a look at it. 
We tried out the new library this week. It was great to get the chance to choose some gorgeous new books for our library corner for us to read.
