WE ARE SWIMMING MONDAY TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY
THURSDAY IS PURPLE CAKE DAY.....DRESS IN PURPLE!!!
In Week 4 we continued to think about Eating For Health by using the computer program Inspiration to sort food into Healthy and Non Healthy groups. Take a look at the picture Jaz made. You can check out your own child's work on the Kidzstuff blog.
On Thursday we had a special visit from some Asian officials who are studying English at NMIT. We sang some songs together and they showed us how to write their names in English and in their own script and how to say hello in their language....tricky!! This writing is from Laos.
They also taught us some children's songs from their countries. Can you guess which animals they are about?
On Friday we had our second buddy time with our friends from Room 5. As it was a very sunny day Tracy and Sally challenged us to write our names with water before the sun dried the first letters up.
We did lots of thinking about ccccc...cats this week to help us learn the 'c' sound. Watch out for our cat pictures which we will be putting the finishing touches to this week Meanwhile we hope you enjoy our cat poem.
Some how our Clickety Clack Cicada poem from Week 3 got left off the blog...so here it is at last!
Finally I will be out of the classroom on Wednesday for an update of my First Aid certificate and again on Thursday for an ICT conference. Lynley will be looking after the class and having plenty of Purple Cake Day fun.
Have a great week.
