Busy few weeks!

Kia Ora What a busy few weeks we have had! For writing we have been learning about procedures and how we sequence events. To do this we made pizza and blew bubbles. They loved having a fun experience to write about. We have been creating some lovely pieces of art for the Waimate Show. Please feel free to come in and see their lovely chalk pictures and pumpkins. This years pet day was enjoyed by all. There were so m any different animals and the kittens were loved by all. Here is a short video of the past few weeks.

Stop motion videos

Kia Ora! What a wonderful trip we had to Auckland last week. Today I began teaching the children to use stop motion to help them retell a story. Here are two of the stories they made. The next step is for them to use the recording button independently to tell their story.

It's been a great start to the term with us all learning about New Zealand and what being a part of New Zealand means. Over the next few weeks we will be researching native animals of New Zealand. .

Weeks 5 and 6

Kia Ora A big welcome to Sydney-Rose, Everest and Stevie-Leigh. Over the past few weeks we have been learning about the letters B and C. We made blueberry and banana smoothies and had a teddy bears picnic. We made cat masks, clowns and learn many new words each day. Everyday we do our word works, spelling and reading and follow a very structured timetable which allows the children to settle into routines quickly. Here are some recent photos.

Weeks 2 and 3

Well what an exciting and busy first few weeks we have had! We are learning to follow classroom rules and play and share nicely all the time. Good words are great and saying mean things is not. We like to do puzzles, use the play dough to create numbers, letters and objects, paint and cut and paste. Each Friday we have a developmental morning and children who will be coming to start school soon visit. We love this day because we get to make new friends and we learn through play! Take a look at our pictures and see if you can spot the pictures that show the children filling the kete! To new parents "Filling the Kete" is a term we have come up with. It means that we can all help make ourselves and others feel good about helping, caring, sharing and learning. we love reading your comments - keep them coming! e noho ra Room 4!

Week 1!

Welcome to Room 4 2015. My name is Miss Harvey and I am thrilled to be teaching your child this year. I have an open door policy and encourage you to come in and see what your child is learning. This term we have a school wide focus on "Filling our Kete with Values and Character". We will be talking to the children about the importance of sharing, caring, doing and saying the right things, being friendly and giving away smiles! Here are some photos of Cash finding some caterpillars on our swan plants, us learning a new game called Wizards and Dragons and then we had a grass fight on the field!
