DISCOVERY LEARNING - FEBRUARY
|Creating with clay was popular.|
|While others persevered with construction.|
|Lots of glueing and cutting.|
|Some tried their hand at face painting.|
|The children had to do it all on their own by looking in a mirror.|
|Mrs A had her hair shaved off for charity and the children made her hats to keep her head protected.|
|The mini laptops were VERY popular in Room 9.|
|There was art and craft in Room 10 with Mrs O.|
|Why do you think the children are wearing ear muffs?|
|T E A M WO R K!|
THE MONARCH CATERPILLARS - FEBRUARY
|From this ....|
|Then this.... in just 20 minutes!!|
We had a lot of caterpillars and not a lot of food.
THE ROCKY SHORE AND AQUARIUM TRIP - APRIL
|On the way to Napier.|
|We had morning tea at the Rocky Shore at Ahuriri.|
|Carol told us about some of the creatures we would find.|
|Here is the Rocky Shore. It was low tide.|
|We lifted up rocks and picked up little sea creatures. It was great fun exploring.|
|We had to be careful not to get wet feet.|
|"Hey! I think I found a crab."|
|"Oooh. What did you find?"|
|"I can hop over these rocks without getting wet."|
|Look at this little crab.|
|Here is a beautiful pin cushion starfish.|
|We found so many creatures in the rock pools but had to put them back before we left.|
At the beginning of the year we all had a go at doing Kelly Sports to see if we would like it. It was GREAT fun!!!
|"Are you ready? Set? Go!!!"|
|Catch the ball in the net.|
|The Rugby relay.|
|This was the band STRIKE that we went to see. They played percussion instruments. This is a very big xylophone.|
|There were lots of different instruments.|
|This was sooo cool! But it was VERY NOISY!!!!|
In the last week of the term, Carloynne came to talk about looking after our hearing.
|We learnt about how sound vibrates on little hairs inside your ears.|
|This was lots of fun but we learnt about caring for our ears too.|
Last term we also learnt to throw underarm, overarm and catch.
|Watch the ball.|
|You should catch a ball with crocodile hands.|
|Some of us had to move further and further apart because we got so good.|
THE LAST DAY OF TERM
The whole school has been put into Houses. The houses are Joll, Campbell, Duart and Chambers.
We dressed up in the colour of our house. It was a great day.
|We had some unusual looking teachers that day. We wonder where our old teachers went?|
