For the first 2 weeks of this term we went swimming.  We had such a good time and learnt lots of new skills.  Take a look.



We have been learning about 1/2 and 1/4. We have used paper and play dough to help us understand fractions. It's a really hard concept to get!  We have to remember that 1/2 is 1 part of 2 and 1/4 is 1 part of 4 and they all have to be the same size. Have a practise at home.

Lyric's Dad

We had Lyric's Dad, Jeremy come in to talk to us about his job.  He is a stunt actor and has worked on films like The Hobbit and Tintin.  The children were fascinated by this and enjoyed the all the photos. 

 (Sorry this photo won't turn around)

This is what he had to wear for Tintin.

Keeping Ourselves Safe

We have been learning about how to keep ourselves safe.  We had Chris Wiltshire from the Police come to talk to us about road safety.  We need to remember to look left and right before crossing the road.  Ask your child how else they can be safe around the road.

Public Library

Every fortnight we go to the library with our buddy class - Ricoh Room.  We each have a buddy and they walk with us to the library.  They help us choose our books and read books to us.  We really enjoy and look forward to going.  We now go fortnightly on Tuesdays at 9am.

Hebe and Mungo Ukulele

Hebe and Mungo are learning the Ukulele from John Willers.  They came into the class to show us what they have learnt.  Well dones guys!

Isabella's Puppies

On Friday afternoon Isabella's mum Robyn brought in 3 of her golden retriever puppies. We thought they were very cute and enjoyed having them come visit. 

So cute!

They are heavy!

Ashleigh and Rebekah want one, Mum?

Zoe had the special touch.
