Discovery Time

It's nearly Christmas time and we had some christmas decorations to make at Discovery Time today.
The boys also had a great time playing with the train set. Apart from the decorations and the train set the other activities were...the making table, the sand pit, and the wooden blocks.

Our School Production....."Rock Bottom Rock"s was a real hit.

In our recent school production all Room 3 children were... 'Growlers' (little cavemen)
They did a fabulous job and really enjoyed themselves. The show was very popular and everyone who went said it was great. Well done everyone who made it a great show.

Shapes Shapes Everywhere!

Look at some of the places we found shapes at Hope School.

         

Sewing

We have been learning to sew.
We chose the picture we wanted to have and cut it out from a piece of felt. Then we had to place it where we wanted it on our background. Mrs Ross chose a non slip background which meant the felt wouldn't slip when we were sewing it in place. Once the main picture was sewn on we had to think about what we wanted to have in the background and sew that on too. Afterwards some of us wanted to stick some sparkly things on but others chose just to leave them as they were.

A lot of children had never sewn anything before so there was soooo much to learn. We had some parent helpers come in for a couple of sessions (thank-you ladies) to guide them in their work but the children did all of the sewing and cutting themselves! Our school value this term is creativity and I think all of the children displayed their creative side during this project. Also our Life Skill that we are focusing on is 'Participating and Contributing....part of that is "Giving things a go" and having a "Can Do" attitude. I have to commend all of these children because there was not one of them that gave up when it got hard.
Well done Room 3 you kept trying and didn't give up!! You can be very proud of your sewing work.
These items are being entered into the A and P show next weekend...you never know one of them might win a ribbon. Maybe you can pop along to the A and P show at the Richmond Show Grounds (24th and 25th November) and take a look at these and other entries from children at Hope School.




Learning about 'Reflection'

In Room 3 we are exploring shapes....shapes we have discovered are everywhere!

As well as looking at the different characteristics of the shapes, today we used them to create reflecting patterns.
Some of us used the edge of the carpet squares as our mirror line and some used a line of tape....take a look at our amazing reflecting patterns.
