Term 4 Week 4

Kia Ora and welcome to our blog for Week 4 of Term 4. As a new month started we have been learning  a new whakatauki:
We spotted some interesting games going on during morning tea earlier this week!

On Tuesday we had some special news from our birthday girl who proudly showed off her new ukulele to us all.
We continued our fabric work this week by working together to make fabric collage butterflies with warm and cold colours. We plan to put them up in the office area of the school so others can see them as well.

We also finished off our fabric sun project. Make sure you check them out next time you are in or outside Room 10.
There was plenty of outside activity this week with No Child Left Inside when we practiced our shot put skills.
On Thursday we had a fun packed day out and about learning about bugs and butterflies with Dean.
On Friday the weather meant we could spend much of our Discovery Time outside, including our open air shop.....
 ....and continuing our bug hunting.
 We were all really sad to say good bye to Shaelea after having her working with us in Room 10 for 4 weeks. She helped us in so many ways and we think she is already a fabulous teacher!Here are the special messages we wrote for her leaving card.
