RIGHT CHOICE DAY!

We had a fantastic day at school today!  We made cute Easter cards for our families and we decorated Easter eggs.  We watched a movie with the rest of Piako and then Mrs Kenyon brought a friend to visit us ... Kori the Penguin!

The best part of the day was probably making chocolates!

Happy Easter everyone!  We'll see you next term!

STRETCHY WEIGHTS!

Today we weighed objects using a different type of weighing 'machine'.  We put objects in a plastic snap lock bag. Then we clipped the bag to a bulldog clip that was attached to a long piece of elastic.

We then measured what number on the ruler the bag came down to. We found out the heavier the object, the bigger the number was!  We then put the bags in order from lightest to heaviest.

FUN AT THE LIDO!

We were so lucky with the weather today!  It was like summer again.  We walked to the Lido and spent the afternoon swimming and playing in the water.  We had a picnic lunch out in the sunshine and had a wonderful time.   We were feeling pretty tired on the way home so Mrs Harland took our bags back to school in the car!  Thanks Mrs Harland!

WHEELS DAY!

This week is our EOTC week!  On Monday it was Wheels Day. We got to bring our bikes,  scooters and skateboards to school to try out the news multi purpose sports track. We had a great time. The teachers all wished they had brought their wheels. It was pretty cold just standing and watching!   Next time we are sure they'll remember!

BELIEVE IT OR NOT!

Today we took part in the celebration for the end of our Science Inquiry.  We performed in the  'Believe it or Not' show!  Sophia the Scientist was our special guest.  She was very impressed with all the amazing Science experiements we have been conducting.  The experiment we shared today ws called 'Blobs in a Bottle'.  This was the only experiment that fitted the criteria set by Sophia.  The experiment had to have a reaction that was big and flashy.  It needed to be safe and be able to be done in the hall using everyday equipment.  Most importantly it had to be exciting for the children and the adults to watch.  Mrs Lunn said we were awesome.

OUR BUSY MORNING

Before school,  Mrs Lunn sets up some activities for us to do.   Today we had a cool Maths challenge at our new whiteboard table.   We had to complete the number patterns. The were even some skip counting ones! 

Our literacy activity was to use alphabet stamps to spell words.  This was a big hit with us kids!
