Today Rooms 11 and 9 had Ben Bonner come to visit us from Sport Waikato. He was teaching us all about nutrition and how to choose a healthy breakfast option. We learnt that we need to look at the sugar, fat and fibre content of different foods to make a good choice.
Take a look!
On Friday we had a blast playing some awesome games the Room 2 senior students had prepared for us! We loved that we got to develop our team player skills with our big kid buddies, while playing some super fun games… take a look!
Thanks Room 2 and Mr Robinson for having us!
Today we pulled out our class dress up box to use as a prompt for our writing. We got to play dress ups, make up characters and create different games with our awesome costumes! We had lots of time to talk and play as our characters before we stopped to brainstorm our story ideas. Then we got to actually write our stories – while still wearing our dress ups! Our purpose and audience for our writing today was to share our creative ideas with Rooms 11 and 12. At the end of writing time Miss Smith chose 4 people who had tried really hard to write fabulous stories to go over and share with Rooms 11 and 12 – Leila, Lucas, Evie and Victoria showed great concentration and developed their ideas into cool creative stories!
Check out our awesome play and creativity in action!
This morning we had some very cute pug puppies come to visit! The puppies belong to Ruby G and she brought them in so we could have a cuddle! Take a look…
Last Friday we had a very special visitor in Room 9 – Lottie the piglet! Lottie belongs to Lucas and she was a runt piglet from his mother pig Pickles. We had a great time patting and cuddling little Lottie, we all thought she was very sweet. Today we got to write about Lottie after we received some more pictures of her from Lucas’s mum.
Take a read of Harrison and Leila’s stories below:
Last Friday Lucas brought a piglet called Lottie to school and she has a broken leg. Lucas also said “Lottie is a runt and she got stepped on by her mother.” She also has little hooves like goats and she has a watery snout. She looks like she would not be able to run fast with a broken leg. – By Harrison
The piglet is warm and fluffy. Lottie started to sleep on my lap. When the piglet went to Tennessa her little tail stuck out. She had a little green cast. – By Leila

This week to continue to develop our essential Team Player skill of listening we played another fun listening game. We got into pairs and had to decide the person to be the ‘walkie talkie’ and the writer. The walkie talkie had to walk outside to the picnic table and read a sentence Miss Smith had put there. Then they had to walk back inside and tell their writer what it said and how to spell each word – letter by letter! The teams also had to include the correct punctuation that Miss Smith had used and the first team finished the sentence was the winner! We’re great listeners so we were pretty good that this 🙂
