Week 8

The Room 6 students who attend our Weekly Kapa Haka group are getting a lot more confident. It is great to see them learning from the older students.
 We had our first of four Hockey sessions this week. We learnt how to hold the stick correctly and the noise it should make along the ground. 
 On Wednesday Room 6 borrowed Mrs Oakleys Book Moo-Cow Kung-Fu Cow. This is a really funny story so we choose our favourite character and wrote about them. We then took our writing down to Room 1 and shared it with the students. They showed us their writing books and we also had milk and buddy reading with them. 
 We had a guest from the Ashburton District Council in to talk to us about Dog Safety. We learnt many different things and loved meeting Roxy the dog. 
 We are loving making up stories with our imaginations. We made up a very creative oral story about this mysterious little cup. 
 We have been working on our fine motor skills. This is a new activity we can choose to do during reading time.

Weeks 6 & 7

We had the best time during swim week. It was great to be able to go to the pool each day for a full week and see the fantastic progress the students made. 

Room 6 made this gorgeous Taniwha. We took our time and worked really hard to keep inside the lines. You can go and see this outside Mr Wheelers office. 

This week for our letter "i" Miss Patrick made us some delicious muffins so we could write about the icing. 
 We have been using our imaginations to make up stories about different objects with our storytelling skills. Above you can see us looking at a mysterious hook we made up and very creative oral story about. 

We had a great time on Wednesday showing Merle Leask Kindergarten around Room 6. 

We loved having our Whānau visit on Wednesday for our termly community invite. We showed them what we do during Discovery Learning time each week.

Week 5

We have been learning some yoga moves to support us to calm ourselves and get focused on our learning. 
We are loving growing our sunflowers and learning about the plant life cycle. This gorgeous art work we made is up in the hall if you would like to see it. 
 We have been learning about maths problem solving. We are learning to work with a buddy and listen to each others ideas. 
 We had a great time at Discovery Learning this week.
