Well everyone it's time to say goodbye. The year is nearly over and 2012 will bring us new adventures. Some children from Room 8 will be in Anna's class, some will be with whaea Robyn and some will be with Mrs Frost.
Wherever you are work hard, be happy and show your new teacher your beautiful spirit.
We used a bubble effect to make our Pohutakawa Tree. We used red, gold and green to make the flowers. We used green to make the leaves. We used hand prints to make the leaves. It felt like it was going up our arms! The tree has got branches on it. We might put glitter on it.
We have been working hard to make sure our Funky Town dance for Ground Celebration is super. We practice our dance every day and we are getting better and better. We love keeping fit and moving our body to music!
The drums were loud but it was ok because we were having lots of fun. When we were dancing we had to copy Dylan. The teachers were dancing. Miss Dee was shaking her head. It looked silly. He had drum sticks in his hand. It was cool and funky.
Today we have been learning about zero. We counted from ten down to zero and blasted off like rockets! We watched a Sesame Street podcast about the number zero. It was funny when Cookie Monster ate the number zero. Miss Dee asked us funny questions and every time the answer was zero!
I am a rocket down on the ground, waiting quietly without a sound. Light the fuse on my toe. Ready for take off.... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 BLAST OFF! Here I go!
Today is Mohamed's last day in Room 8. He is going to live in Australia where his dad works.
We will miss you Mohamed but we hope that you have fun in Australia. Don't forget your gorgeous orange sunglasses to keep the sun out of your eyes in Australia!
Yesterday we ate yoghurt. It looked sticky. It looked nice and smooth. We put it into a bowl. It smelled like strawberries.It was cold. It was in the fridge. It was red and a little bit pink like a strawberry. These are pictures of us pretending to eat yoghurt!
In Room 8 we have been learning HEAPS about farm animals and the amazing things they do. This week we have learned about cows. Did you know they have FOUR stomachs? Did you know that they give us milk? Did you know that the milk comes from their udders?
We watched a video about how the farmer squeezes the milk from the cows udders. We wrote stories about crazy cows who make banana milkshake.
Today we talked about what we use milk for. Did you know that milk is used to make yoghurt? Even though we usually save yoghurt for eating at home we decided to make a treat. We helped Miss Dee to make strawberry yoghurt! Maybe we'll get to taste it tomorrow?
We are learning about the Rugby World Cup. We have been learning about the flags from other countries. We watched the opening ceremony and we have watched the All Blacks haka. It was loud and exciting!
Room 8 have been reading the book Taniwha by Robyn Kahukiwa.
Today in the Orchard, we drew taniwhas in Kidpix.
We also found a cool picture of a taniwha on the internet,
Ryka worked really hard to draw a taniwha just like the one we found.
He did a great job - what do you think?
