Term 4 Week 3

This week we had Harold to visit us. We talked about what makes a good friends and looking after our bodies with heathy food. We made Harold some gorgeous paintings of him to thank him for visiting our school. He loved them and is going to put them on his bedroom wall. 

We entered in the Ashburton A & P show. As a group we had to make a vegetable animal, a lego construction and a card. We had a great time making these and are excited to see them on display when we visit the show on Friday.

Term 4 Week 1

We have had an extremely busy week back at school. 

We loved sharing our holiday stories with each other. We all had a great holiday and are excited for lots of new learning in Term 4. 

We have new reading games this term. These ones were kindly given to us by Ruby in Room 4 and her family. 

We were also kindly given a treasure box. This was given to us by a student Miss P used to teach in Balclutha. We love getting this out of it. 

We have been learning our high frequency words with our friends this week. We have also been learning how to add groups of numbers together and how to write these down. 

On Friday fun day we started making grass men. We collected sawdust from out long jump pit, made bags out of mutton cloth, added wheat and soaked them in water. We then decorated them and are patiently waiting for them to grow. Keep an eye out for pictures of them over the next few weeks.
