Term 2 Week 6

Welcome to our Week 6 blog post.

Te kupu o te wiki

Our poem this week linked to the sound 'w' that we were practicing. Take a listen to our Worms Wiggle poem.
On Wednesday Sebbie's mum helped us to draw pictures for using on our art panel in the Junior Adventure Playground. We learnt how to draw kingfishers and some of the food they might eat.

 Sam helped us to understand more about capacity by sharing the story of Mr Archimedes' Bath.
 We are getting very skilled at our high frequency words and thinking about tall and short letters.


On Thursday Sarah from the Environment Centre came to visit us again. This time she helped us to learn how we can have a zero waste lunch box.

Our sports lesson with Jane was, as always,packed with energy and fun

On Friday in our maths rich task we investigated the different ways we could pay for a $1 juicy.

It is great to see everyone so focused on their reading at browse box times.

This week in Discovery Time we watched a video of the story ' How Full is Your Bucket" and then we tried to fill as many people's buckets as we could

Finally, we hope you enjoy this week's Discovery Time slide show. We certainly love reading all your comments, thank you.
