Jumping Shadows

We went on a shadow hunt today through the school because we are learning about shadows. A shadow is black and goes beside you when you are walking around. It goes on the other side of where the sun is. Here are some photos of us chasing our shadows and making shadow pictures. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon so we made some awesome shadows!

Tilpa Visits Ty

Tilpa and I rode in the bumpy school bus all the way to Te Awamutu today. He came to my Mum's school and then home to my house. When it was my bedtime, Tilpa helped me with my home work and then snuggled down in bed with me and my cat.

Thanks for letting me bring home Tilpa. It was great fun today.

Tilpa came to Dan's house

Tilpa came to Dan's house.

Tilph was having afternoon tea with Dan at his house. They had a chocolate muffin, crackers and ginger beer. Tilpa watched T.V. and then Dan read her a story about an old man who lost his mitten, but he found it at the end. Dan had a bath and Tilpa really wanted to have a swim, but he couldn't because he isn't allowed to get wet. Then Dan and Tilpa had a bedtime story, and they snuggled up in bed and went to sleep.

Kites

Today we had Golden Time for following our six golden rules all week. We made kites and flew them. We also had some kites from home. It was such a lot of fun and we were very lucky because it stopped raining just long enough for us to enjoy the afternoon (there was even a bit of wind!). Check out our photos:

Learning and playing with shapes

We have been learning about 2D shapes and we had a rotation lesson. One of our tasks was to create an object using a range of 2D shapes and then we had to each take our own photograph of what we had make (all on our own!). Here are some of our photos:

Our Zebra Adjectives

We have been learning about using adjectives to make our writing more interesting. Adjectives are describing words. Here are some sentences we wrote using adjectives to describe the photo of the zebra in the bush.

I can see the wavy trees.
The floating tree waves in the whispering wind.
The waving weeds wave goodbye to the elegant zebra.
The striped zebra was rolling around in the long grass.
The stripy zebra was having a tickle.
The slapping tail was hurting the zebra.
The zooming zebra was getting ticklish.
The stripy zebras were on wide leaves.

Welcome to Room 3!

Hello wonderful children and welcome to Room 3's Blog. We are going to have a very exciting year of learning together. I hope you all had wonderful holidays. I have spent a lot of time in our classroom getting it ready for your learning. Have you met Georgie yet? He is our class mascot. He has been very excited about meeting you. The fish are also happy to meet you. You have to watch out for the Angel Fish; she likes to chase the small fish around the tank! Have a super day.
Miss C :-)
