We are a Year 1 class at Nelson Central School, Nelson, New Zealand. Most of us are 5 years old,
except for Tracy our teacher who is a bit older. This blog lets you know what we have been up to
and what our next learning steps will be. We love to find out what people think about our class

Week 2 Term 1

WE ARE SWIMMING MONDAY, THURSDAY AND FRIDAY

Last week we started our maths program by learning to play some maths games, including dominoes, bingo and Murtle The Turtle. When we needed a break we went outside in the sun and experimented with toys in the water tray.

On Friday Will brought a new, four legged friend into Room 11. We named him Sticky The Stick Insect. He was very well camoflagued in his box and we had to look very carefully to see him. In the afternoon we let him free and decided that a high tree branch would be the safest place. Can you spot Sticky in the pictures below? Lily was wondering if Sticky would turn green on the green leaves. Great question Lily! Can anyone answer it for us?
   

We met some other new friends as well on Friday, but these were the 2 legged kind.They were our Buddy Class for this year, Room 5. We had a free play in the Junior Playground and started to make friends with our older buddies. We will see them again in 2 week's time.
Our poem for this week helped us to think about how to be good friends to each other. See if you can recognise any voices on the clip below.
