Zoo Animals

Today in Discovery, we learnt about zoo animals.  Mrs Lunn set up a vet clinic in our room so we could treat some sick animals.  Leevi would make an excellent vet.  He was very gentle.  Some of us worked together to make a zoo out of wooden blocks.  We had a great time.

Our Superstar.

Today Mikaere wrote an amazing story about our assembly.  He was very proud of his work.  He sounded out the word PLAY all by himself.  Mrs Lunn was impressed!

Dinosaur Discovery

Today in Discovery we learnt about Dinosaurs. Keira and Leevi dug up dinosaur bones.  They had to put together the skeletons of dinosaurs.  We had to guess what dinosaurs they were.  James painted a picture of a volcano.  Charlie tried making a dinosaur out of mobilo.  Nikayla enjoyed playing with the big foam letters.  Issy and Kaitlyn played on the ipad.  Mikaere enjoyed reading the dinosaur books.  We have been really busy!  Mrs Lunn is going to help us make playdough soon!  We can't wait!

Today's superstar writer!

Snow at School!

Last night it snowed in Palmerston North!  The snow was still on the ground when we came to school this morning.

We went outside and played in the snow.  It made a crunching sound under our feet!  We found big sheets of ice.  Issy and Nikayla collected some.  Lots of the other school children were playing on the field in the snow.

It is a very special day.  We will always remember the day it snowed at School!

Frosty Friday

Today Mrs Lunn made us some ice to play with. There were lots of interesting things in the ice.  We found out in Discovery Time that ice is water that has been frozen.  We had a great time playing with the ice.  Frosty Friday was fun!

The Gingerbread Man

Today we read the story of the Gingerbread Man.  It got us thinking...

There must be a way for the Gingerbread Man to cross the river without getting eaten by the fox!

We brainstormed our ideas of ways for him to safely cross the river.

After some serious decision making, we each settled on a way to help the Gingerbread Man.

We made a collection of bridges, boats and an aeroplane.

Here is a photo of us working...
