Week 3 Term 3

We had our first trip of Term 3 on Tuesday. We went to the museum to learn about some very interesting musical instruments from all around the world. Thank you to all the parents who came along to help, especially with the obstacle ridden walk to and from the museum!

We  continued acquiring information for our Terrific Trolleys topic by looking carefully at some of our own toys that had wheels. We drew them using Tuxpaint, made them out of play dough and wrote a description of them.


On Thursday we had some special visitors who are studying English at NMIT. They were government officials from Laos, Timor Leste and Cambodia. As well as joining in with our reading rotation they taught us how to say hello in their languages.
Hello in Loa is sabaidee
Hello in Portuguese, one of the languages spoken in Timor Leste is bom dia
Hello in Khmer, the language spoken in Cambodia is sour sdey
