Term 2 Week 5

Welcome to our week 5 blog post.

Te kupu o te wiki

This week was PINK week and once again a great effort was made to dress up for Friday and to find pink objects..well done everyone.

We have been showing some great skills linked to the Key Competency of Relating to Others as we shared our learning with each other, our big buddies and our new Kowhai friends from Room 12a.

Our  older buddies helped us to learn how to use the Ready To Read books on the iPad.

We shared some of our favourite games with new friends from Room 12a.
On Friday afternoon we had Buddy Time and together with our Room 5 buddies designed new outfits for ourselves.

On Thursday afternoon Sarah from the Environment Centre helped us to look at what we are throwing away into our classroom rubbish bins

We have finished off our wiggle pictures and this week will be recreating them using Tux Paint during ICT.
Our poem this week helped us focus on the sound 'Z' when we thought about Buzzy Bee.

Here are some more picture from another busy learning week in Room 10.
