In week 9 we had a special visit from some of our Montessori friends and teachers. We sang a dinosaur song, had a dinosaur story and made dinosaur pictograms. Thanks for coming to visit us.
Our NZ Book Month activities continued with more story times from parents, school staff and even student teachers.
On Friday the whole school dressed up as a book character. See how many characters you know in this clip.

Our maths focus for this week was statistics and pictograms. Come and have a look at the pictograms on the classroom wall.
In ICT we used Tuxpaint to reproduce our wiggle pictures that we had painted in art. Watch out for both bits of art work on the Kidzstuff blog later this week.
In week 8 we had used Tuxpaint to make a poster reminding us to eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. Something to remember when preparing food for our Kowhai shared healthy kai on Tuesday
Our poem also reminded us of how important fruit and vegetables are.On Thursday Thomas brought in an interesting seed that looked like half a spinning sycamore seed. This resulted in us making our own paper helicopter spinners and seeing how they flew. Afterwards we wrote about our helicopters. Unfortunately the video clips below are a bit blurry but it gives you an idea of what we got up to.
