Term 4 Week 3

Haere mai and welcome to our Room 10 Week 3 Term 4 blog.
News this week featured a rather spectacular birds nest.
 We learnt all about magic 'e' with 'i' with a little help from a friend.
 Our fairy tale focus for this week was the Three Billy Goats Gruff. We sequenced the story in our reading rotations....  
......looked at words with 'ff' endings and alternative story endings through our Billy Goats Gruff poem.
.... and retold the in writing story by using a 3 part plan. 
 In art we continued with our fabric sun project, this time we used warm coloured fabrics to weave  using a paper plate as the loom.
 A birthday saw special treats for the birthday girl and also for the rest of us, thank you!
 In our maths lesson we had lots of fun using the feely box to describe shapes for our friends to guess.
 In No Child Left Inside we practiced our relay skills.
