In ICT this week we explored online games about healthy eating. You can play them at home by clicking on the Healthy Eating tab at the top of our blog, your child will be able to show you how to get to the games.
We had our first 2 guest readers come in on Wednesday and Thursday. Thanks for the lovely stories and for helping us to celebrate NZ Book Month. Next week we have more guest readers including some dads, our cleaner and our caretaker. It is not too late to sign up for a story telling slot, so be brave and have a go.
The story telling was a big hit with everyone in Room 11 plus some younger friends as well.
In literacy we wrote about our cat pictures. Come and read our stories on the classroom wall.
In art we added blocks of primary colours to our black wiggles that we painted last week. Next week we will be adding the finishing touches by putting texture on the painting.
On Thursday we had a special visitor, Mikey, he was very excited to be in Room 11 and even more excited about going for a walk afterwards. We learnt lots of facts about him and made a big list of words we could use when we write a story about his visit next week. Mikey's visit helped us to remember the sounds 'd' and 'm' which we were learning.
Our poem this week was Hey Diddle Diddle. See how many 'd' and 'm' sounds you can hear in this clip.
