Room One

The Man Whose Mother Was a Pirate

We traveled on a bus over the bridge and went to a place called Takapuna. There we visited a theatre called ‘The Pumphouse’.

We enjoyed watching the show which was all about a man whose mother was a pirate!

We were each given a blue cloth that we had to wave up and down and it was exciting as we pretended to be the ocean.

Room 1

Easter Egg Hunt

For our last Oral Language session of Term 1 we had an exciting ‘Easter Egg Hunt’.

We were divided into two teams and off we went on out hunt. We walked around the whole school like detectives looking for several clues that led us to our treasures.

Ayla says “I enjoyed looking for the Easter eggs and they were delicious.”

Nathaniel says “I loved the ‘Easter Egg Hunt’ but I know that Easter is about JESUS!’

Maths

For Maths this term, one of the strands we are focusing on is ‘Geometry’.

We are learning to name different 2D shapes, count their sides and vertices.

  • “My favourite shape is a diamond because they are sparkly and have four sides” says Ayla
  • “I like drawing the different shapes in my book” says Moses

 

'Lost"

As a class we read the big book "Lost".

After reading we answered a few comprehension questions about the book.

Lastly we wrote a small recount about what happened.

We love writing!

Counting with the Baradene Girls

We are working with our lovely girls from Baradene College. Together we are participating in activities that help us count and improve our fine motor skills.

Smashed Potatoes

For Oral Language, we par boiled potatoes and baked them in the oven. We had to orally describe the process of preparing this delicious dish called “smashed potatoes”.                                                                                                                                                                                

We used herbs from our school garden, butter, grated carrot  and cheese to garnish our potatoes.

Gymnastics

This term we are participating in Gymnastics. We have learnt the importance of warming up before doing any sports. In our pictures you can see us performing different poses with a buddy.

Coach Nisha has taught us the front support, the L shape and back support formations so far.

Cupcakes

For oral language we baked mini cupcakes.

We used flour, eggs, sugar, butter, baking powder, pink food colour, milk and vanilla essence.

They were delicious and scrumptious!
