Week 2 Term 2

Take a look at the obstacle course our Room 5 buddies made for us. We love the way you encouraged and supported us in this challenge, thank you Room 5

On Wednesday this week we visited the York Landfill and the Reuse and Recycle Shop. It was a very interesting trip for both children and adults and we are all very excited about our new classroom mat that Tracy bought. Here is what Thomas thought of the trip:
Room 11 went to the dump. it was smelly. I had to hold my nose it was so smelly.

This term we are looking at Maori myths and legends. The first legend we have learnt about is Maui and the Big Fish. Watch this movie whilst your child retells the legend for you.

Our art and literacy had an Autumn feel to it this week. We went on an Autumn walk and then wrote descriptions. This is what Alfie wrote:
Autumn is about when leaves fall from trees and I like the warm sun. 
 Later in the week we concentrated very hard whilst making observational drawing of the leaves we collected.

Our poem also had an Autumn theme...have a listen.
