Term 2 Week 3

No doubt you will be aware that we are running a Food For Thought fundraiser challenge at school. This has very special meaning to me as all the money goes to an orphange  that I use to help out at during the 3 years I was teaching in Cambodia.  You can find out more about the challenge by watching this brief clip I made for all the children and teachers at school.

What has been going on in Room 10 this week? Here we are reading anytime, any place, anywhere.

We have been making the most of the sunny weather enjoying milk outside.....

 and continuing our No Child Left Inside sports programme.
 In maths we have been learning about length and height.
 We listened to the Gingerbread Man story and then....
 ....... found items that were longer than the gingerbread man.....
 ......the same length as the gingerbread man......
 ..........and shorter than the gingerbread man.

 We continued our wiggle pictures by filling in the spaces with the primary colours: red, blue and yellow.
 In Discovery Time Sam brought along her special bubble wand and we were able to use the bubble mixture from last week to make some amazing bubbles.
 We were near the end of the week preparing some surprise cards for our mums.

This week's math's rich task was about the 3 Little Pigs and involved working out how many bunches of flowers and boxes mother pig would get. Some of us were using double 3 to solve this problem.
I was very impressed by the range of orange clothing being worn in Room 10 on Friday..well done everyone for another fantastic effort.

 We even made orange jelly when we were thinking about the sound 'j'.
 You can see many more photos of these activities in this week's slideshow below.
