Term 1 Week 7

Welcome to a rather special purple blog this week. First of all have a listen to our special purple poem to help celebrate Purple Cake Day.

We had a visit from the health nurse who used glitter and a spray bottle to explain to us how germs spread by touching each other and also through sneezes. She then taught us how to blow our noses properly. The lesson clearly stuck as the children were very quick to remind me when we nearly missed washing our hands before morning tea one day!

We had lots of number fun when Jo popped in to share a maths rich task about some cold little kittens and their mittens. A big thank you from everyone in Room 10.

 Also in maths this week we started working with our maths buddies during our warm up session. Here we are helping each other to read and order numbers to 10 .
We enjoyed looking at and  listening to the holiday diary of one of our Room 10 friends who went on a family trip. Great work!
 In No Child Left Inside we continued to practice our throwing and catching skills.
I was very impressed to see some great examples of our focus Key Competency: Relating to Others this week. A great cooperative effort resulted in this spectacular rocket plane......

 ...and what great team work in action here to put away the rather heavy box of blocks. Well done everyone.
 As Friday approached some fabulous purple cup cake pictures were sent in by one of our families to help remind us of the coming fund raising fun.
Take a look at some of the things we got up to.
