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 2 Term 3

As part of the "acquiring information" stage of our Terrific Trolleys topic we have been looking at various forms of transport. In ICT we sorted types of transport according to where we would find them. Here is Sarah's work using the program Inspiration
We also wrote information reports about bikes. Here are some examples:
A bike is a form of transport that you pedal. They are for people only. In the dark your lights need to be on.

A bike is a form of transport that you pedal. Some bikes have handle bars with streamers on. I have a green bike.

Our poem this week helped us remember how an 'I can" attitude can help us learn to be expert bike riders.
On Friday 2 more Room 11 friends received good work certificates in Kowhai assembly. Well done. 

In maths some of us have been learning about before and after numbers up to 20. Here we are using this knowledge to play a lily pad and frog game.
 We ended the week by making the most of the sunshine and having a play with our Room 5 buddies.
