Welcome to our blog. We are a class of year 0-1 students (5-6 yr olds) at Hope Primary School in New Zealand. Our teacher is Mrs Ross and this blog is a journal of our learning experiences while we are here in Room 3.
Most of this term has been spent practising for our School's Production of "Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies" Room 3's part in this performance was to play a group of Boy Scouts. The children practised and performed their role brilliantly. At Hope School we put on a production like this every second year. It is always lovely to see all of our children gain in confidence on the stage.
Below are a few photos. Later in the term there will be a DVD of the show available from the school office if you are interested.
We have been super busy at school lately working towards our school's production of
"Robin and The Sherwood Hoodies." So not much else has been happening. But now our performances are all over and we were all a bit tired....so a nice quiet Discovery session was had by all. We worked on some Christmas decorations for our tree.
Today we worked on our entries for the A and P show. We decorated biscuits, made some Fruit or Vegetable Creations and then made some Sand Saucers full of beautiful flowers.
I hope you can get down to the Richmond Show grounds over the weekend to see our great work. Keep a look out for our Gingerbread men as well.
On the 9th of November Room 3 and 4 children travelled out to Appleby School to take part in some fun athletic activities. The weather was amazingly hot (for a change). We had a super morning and meet lots of new people too. Thanks to the parents who came and helped with transport and some of the activities.
We had a very cute couple of puppies come to see us. They were so quiet and calm in the classroom. I think they would have been very happy to stay with us, and the kids would have been very happy to have them! Thanks Eva and your mum for bringing them in.
We have finished sewing our gingerbread men and they have now been sent to the A and P Show grounds to be on display in the children's handcraft section. Go along on Saturday the 19th and have a look at them. They look great. It was fun learning some new skills and I think the children really gained from this new experience. Sewing on buttons was a bit of a challenge for some but the hand sewing around the outside was much easier. I think you'll agree they look pretty awesome!!
Thank-you to all of the parent helpers who came to support the children in this learning activity...I couldn't have done it with out you. Maybe one of us will win a ribbon??
One of our learning tools at school is the school computers. Lately we have been learning how to use the keyboard. We are using a programme called KidPix where we draw a picture with the drawing tools then we typing out a story. There is a lot of learning involved in using the computer keyboards.
