This week...

Today Mr Hunt came to school with Pepetuna, the Puriri moth. We shared a book, we decorated a poem, and...we made our own Pepetuna. It takes 5 years for one to hatch and then they live for only a day or two. They are very beautiful!

On Fridays we also share something we bring from home. Can you see our question keys in the middle of our circle?  We ask questions that start with one of these words.

Here is also our schedule for the interviews next week. Please phone our school office if you would still like to see me for an interview and you're not on the list!

Hundreds, Tens and Ones!

Fred and Ben are learning to break 3 digit numbers into Hundreds, Tens and One. They can do it really well. We then made numbers using Hundreds, Tens and Ones. Making 1000 was a bit of a challenge!

Billie Bear

For many years now, Billie Bear has been part of Room 1. He goes home with a Room 1 child for one night. They draw or write about  their adventures with Billie in his book. They share their story the next day.

Billie has had a bath, his clothes have been washed, and he has a new carry bag. Lucky Billie!

Play Centre visit today.

We welcomed the Play Centre children, who visit once a term, with our special song. We talked about measurement and especailly about measuring time. We talked about the days of the week and read The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. We learned about the ay-chunk in day, may, say, stay, way and away.
We learned, laughed, sang and talked. Good-bye friends, see you all next week when we visit you!

This week...

This week we learned about adjectives, verbs and characters from books. Our author of the week was Julia Donaldson. Some of her books are: The Gruffalo, Zog, Room on the broom, The Stick Man ...just to name a few. We've also learned to use expression in our voice while thinking of poor Stick Man. Can you hear the despair in Stick Man's voice?

We have also shown all of our work at Friday's assembly.  Here we are:
