Term 2 Update

It's a busy term...we have been creating artwork from recycled materials. We made bags out of old T-Shirts and we created collages out of used materials, such as newspaper, food wrapping and used paper. We made shapes as this is our maths topic at the moment.

Eco Educate Trip

Last week we went to the Ashburton Recycling Centre. We learnt all about reducing, reusing and recycling. Lesley told us what materials we can reuse and recycle and what needs to go to the landfill. We learnt all about what happens to the recycling and the rubbish that ends up at the centre.

This week we had Room 6 visiting. Together we learnt about Autumn. Room 3 and Room 6 buddied up and went outside to look for interesting leaves. Together we painted the leaves practicing our painting skills. We did a great job of mixing colours together. On Friday we will turn our painted leaves into animals and other creatures.

Welcome to Term 2

Welcome back to Term 2. We have been getting straight back into our learning. We started learning our new story "The Marriage of Ganesh". So far we have listened to the story and we have talked about the meaning of it. We have also created our story map...

Talking about whether Ganesh was cheating...


Sharing our ideas about the story

Creating the story map

We have also been stepping out the story. This helps us to remember the key parts of the story.

Our latest adventures in Room 3

We have been busy over the past few weeks...lots has been happening. We had our first two hockey sessions, where we practiced a range of skills.


















We have also been learning about technological devices and how to programme them. We had Tamati visiting our school teaching us how to create simple algorithms and how to make our 'Bee Bots' move.


























In Maths we have been working together to solve word problems. We had to show and explain how we were solving the problem. Here we are working as a team...


















On Wednesday Leslie from Eco Educate paid us a visit and taught us about recycling, what can and can't be recycled and how to recycle properly. She also helped us to rebuild our worm farm. Room 3 is now responsible for feeding and looking after our worms.
