Our new IPad

We are very lucky to have an ipad in our class to use.  We have written penguin stories then coloured in a special picture and used the quiver app to make 3D penguins. We have also used the sock puppets app to practice reading our poems out loud and at a good speed.

While Miss Nation was away on camp with Room 15 we had lots of fun being pirates - check out our pictures!

Bob found the key and unlocked the door and he got his present,  his present was a thousand fish and he took them home to eat.

Life Education

We had a lovely time visiting Harold the Giraffe in his truck. We learnt lots about the brain. We learnt that the brain controls everything in the body. It makes our hearts beat and our lungs breathe. We had to put together a puzzle of the brain but it was a bit tricky because we had to to it in mad scientist lighting - (red light).

Story of the week

Learning Investigation: Can I use verbs and adjectives to make my story more interesting

Today room 9 went to see Harold in his classroom. We had to figure out Harold's maths problem and it was 1 + 1 = 2 but he already figured it  out. We used our fingers to make stars appear on the roof. The man was using an ipad to control the screen. We learnt lots about what our body needs - food, oxygen, love, sleep and exercise.

Pastel Art

We have been working with pastel for art. We looked at art by Jasper Johns and used one of his ideas to make artwork with our names. We started by folding a piece of white paper to get 16 rectangles. Next we used the letters of our name to fill in each rectangle. After that we used pastels to create big chunky letters. Lastly we dyed each square a different colour. Here are a couple examples of our artwork.

Junior Triathlon

We had lots of fun doing our triathlon last term and hope we get to do another one next year. We used the go-pro's to record what it was like to do the triathlon and Miss Nation made it into a movie. We hope you enjoy it.
