This term we are learning about Celebrations. Here is our Brainstorm for what we could celebrate in Room 1.

We read a book about Grandpas birthday. Here is some writing that we did about what we would give  our Grandpa for his birthday.

 Verzhyn would give Grandpa a game 

 Terri would give Grandpa a scooter.

Dontay said, Happy Birthday Grandpa.

Continuing with our celebrations topic, We did some art that looks like birthday flags. Each child drew a picture on their flag and then were allowed to dye it any colours they wanted. Here are some pieces of our work. 

Here is a picture of what our Birthday flags look like on our Celebrations wall in our class.

Nature Writing

We went outside and looked for some natural things such as sticks, leaves, rocks and flowers. The kids had lots of fun trying to find things that they wanted to write about.

We then did some amazing writing about the things we found. Here is some amazing work from Jahna, I'olani and Elisiva.

Stepping out with Constable Taina

Over the past 2 weeks we have been doing lots of learning with constable Taina. We walked across the road and we got to practise putting our seatbelt on in the Police car.
We had to pull lots of the seatbelt then not let it go. Then we had to make it click!

Garth can do his seatbelt all by himself!

Leeanne made it click! 

I'olani can do her seatbelt all by herself!

Well done Siva!

Ralphina had to pull lots of seatbelt so it would reach.
