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.
A pirate arrived at school. He showed us lots of pirate things that he had in his trunk. He even had a Treasure Map! And guess what..... He left it behind.
So next week we are off on a Treasure Hunt. I hope we get to the treasure before anyone else does..
The map will take us to Mapua then over on the Ferry to Rabbit Island...Oh what an adventure!
First we decorated biscuits....we did two biscuits and chose one of them to enter into the A and P competition (the other one we ate for morning tea. Secondly we made our Fruit and Vege Creations. After morning tea we worked on our Sand Saucers.
Hopefully you get a chance over the weekend to get down to the show grounds to see ours and many other children's amazing work.
This week we had...cars in the sandpit, weaving, making a stickman, playing with blocks and skipping for our Discovery Time activities.
We were lucky and had some Room 1 children come and join in on our fun too.
Friday was Miss Chandler's last day with us in Room 3. So we celebrated her time here with a 'dress up discovery session' and ice cream. Yum!!
The activities we had were: making balloon rockets, lego, pretend tea party, construction with boxes, and rolling ice cream cones. Our life skill this term is "Thinking" and we are learning at the moment about 'making good choices'.
Unfortunately our athletics day with Appleby School was cancelled this week due to wet weather, but we were able to get out and enjoy some activities later in the day anyway ...here we are doing Long Jump.
