and what our next learning steps will be. We love to find out what people think about our class

Week 4 Term 4

This week seems to have flown past, it is hard to believe that next week will already see us at the mid point of this final term. We had a lot of fun on Monday putting together our class adjective snake and making a voice recording to go with it. Plenty of enthusiastic participants and some great adjective ideas...well done tamariki. Take a look at the final result below.

We learnt lots of new facts about fish with Dean on Wednesday as well as practising our Tuxpaint skills during our computer lesson.
On Thursday we had our 3rd Grasshopper tennis lesson and it was clear to see the improvement in everyone from the first lesson a few weeks ago. We practised overarm throws to assist in a fast serve and general control of the ball on the racket.

In the afternoon we continued to build on the weaving skills we learn in week 3, this time using a variety of different fabrics. We plan to incorporate this weaving as part of a fabulous looking fish.


 On Friday we were invited to the official opening of the senior sandpit. We listened to lots of people thanking everyone who helped make the sandpit happen and watched the ribbon being cut.


The best bit was when we got to have a special play in the sandpit!


Wishing you all a safe and happy week.
Tracy
