Farm Trip

Hi everyone

We had so many forms come in Friday Morning offering help for the trip (about 10!)  We had to do a  draw as unfortunately we are only allowed to take four people with us.  Thank you to all who offered.  

Ruth Beale,  Jo Roberts,  Angela Wu and Monique Ross (sorry Monique -not totally sure of your surname)  are coming with us.  Thanks so much everyone and sorry we can't take you all.

Happy Friday Everyone.

I have been really impressed with writing this week.  We have really been working hard.  This week our PB4L focus has been on 'staying safe'  and we have looked at how we move around the school. Here is some writing about this.

My sister saw big kids bump into a girl. The little kid cried.  The teacher was not angry at the big kids  she just said, "No running around corners." 

Do not run into the little kids.  That will hurt the little kids.  Please don't knock us over.  You will have to say, "Sorry".

Please do not run around buildings because you will bang into a big kid.  It is a good idea to run on the grass otherwise you will get a stubbed toe. 

Do not run around corners because you might bump into the wall. - Ash

A busy week!

This week was a busy one.  We finished off with a great  Mother's day celebration today. Thanks to all who came - to all who couldn't make it (I hope a cupcake made it home to you? :-) ) .  I can't believe how much food our little people consumed. Hopefully I will be able to get some photos from Ms Fothergill as I didn't take any myself.

Earlier this week we wrote letters to Fletchers for the trees they donated to the school. We even counted the trees (hedge) they gave us by the fence line (75)  (Maths, Fitness and Writing - all tied in to the one activity!)

Getting a good copy with perfect spelling was no easy feat for these youngsters and a lot of effort went into these letters.  Four of Room 5 went over to the Fletchers home to deliver these letters.  Ms Harland took these photos.  Thanks Room 5 for your hard work and Ms Harland for the pictures.

Hi all!  This afternoon we went to the senior classrooms and the children from these classrooms shared their learning with us. (Photos of this below)  Next Friday from 2:30 we are going to celebrate Mother's day or as I am calling it "significant super female'' day.  If you fit either description - we would love you to join us from 2:30pm on Friday the 8th for a special afternoon tea.  I will bring some food, but if you are able, please bring a small plate.  Many Thanks :-)
