What a great start to the term. We welcomed Jared to the team. He has come from Newbury school and brought his great attitude with him.
We had a chance to revisit what we knew about ANZAC day and the battles for the Gallipoli Penninsular by building a model of the landscape in the sandpit.
After lunch we teamed up with Rm 6 so Brenda could begin helping us learn how to use verbs, in sentences, in te reo. The two classes worked together well and completed the task of making flashcard for about 60 verbs! Way to go.
This term we are studying the weather and the sun. For art and for a project with rm 6 and11 we will also be studying the stars and constellations so be prepared to be out in the garden after dinner looking at the view overhead. The children will need to download the Met service app and "sky map2" app to help the with their learning. If they do not have an ipad but you have room on your phone to have these apps for the term it would be a great help for home discussions and we can share devices at school.
We will continue to work in the gardens on Wednesdays from 11.30 -1 so if you could spare us some time to help we would love to have you. Thanks to Vanessa and Vic for their help so far.
