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
so please get typing and leave us a comment.

Week 5 Term 1

Luckily the weather was good to us last Monday and many of our families came along to the School Community Group Annual Picnic. Great fun was had by all and I was particularly impressed with the Room 11 boys effort in the Tug of War event.

Also on Monday last week we welcomed a new addition to our class, we named him Flopsy and he makes a very comfy addition to our reading corner.
Our Class Treaty is now on our window for everyone to see and to remind us daily of the promises we made to each other to ensure we have a happy learning space in Room 11. Please take the time to share it with your child and familiarise yourself with the rights and responsibilities it covers.
On Thursday we celebrated Purple Cake Day, raising over $500 across the whole of NCS for schools in Nepal and Haiti. Thank you to everyone who contributed and please enjoy the spectacular sight of all our purple clad Room 11 friends.

Our poem for last week also had a purple theme and I know has already been enjoyed by many families who shared poem books that came home at the weekend. If you have not already heard it take a listen to " My Neighbours Dog is Purple"
