A Visit From the Life Education Mobile Classroom and Harold

We were very excited on Thursday and Friday of this week because Hope School had a visit from Harold's Classroom.
Harold said there were some Very Important People in the truck and when we got inside we found the Important People were US!
In the Class we learnt lots about ourselves and that we are all special and unique.

Swimming Demonstration Room 3 and 4

We joined together with Room 4 this afternoon to show our parents some of the things we had been learning during our swimming lessons this term. We swam through hoops and floated like starfish. Then we were in different groups to show gliding, kicking with a board, kicking with arrow arms, front stroke and back stroke. What a great time of sharing our learning.
Thank-you to all the parents and grandparents that came along to watch.

Discovery Time Stories

Discovery Time activities today...Painting with Sponges, Making Marble Tracks, Cloud Dough, A Pretend Picnic and Making a Frog.             Our stories follow these pictures.

Today in our Discovery Time stories we were learning to use describing words.... 

How do you think we did??

I like the marble track because it is fast.

I like playing with the marbles and they went super fast!

I was playing with the dough. I smashed it to pieces.

I made a car with dough. The car was yellow.

I like the marble track.

I slipped the cloud dough together.

The dough was like snow.

I am having a picnic with somebody else.

I liked the marbles because we pushed the marbles.

I liked the painting because it squished and squashed.

I played with the marbles and they went fast.

I snipped and snapped with the scissors and I made a frog.
