Week 4 Term 3

This week we have been blowing, printing and writing about bubbles.

At school I blew bubbles. I popped bubbles and the girls had a turn. Those bubbles were big. Some bubbles are different shapes. Some bubbles are small.

We had two sessions in the Life Education trailer with Victoria and Harold the giraffe who helped us to think about all the things that make us special and how to look after our friends. Here is a play dough picture of Harold and a giraffe friend.

  1. I hope everyone likes watching Harold the Giraffe, because I went in the truck and we saw him and he was singing. And there were stars in the truck.

    1. Hello Lily

      I really enjoyed hearing about Harold the giraffe. Congradulation on another tooth coming out, you are keeping the tooth fairy very busy.

      Lots of love

  2. Thankyou for the comments that you left on our blog. We think you would like visiting the snail exhibition. How did you make the bubbles colourful? We hope to see you soon.
    From Room 5 - Your favourite buddies!
