Track-a-thon Art

Room 19 had great fun last week constructing our Art for the Track-a-thon. The children researched ideas on the iPads and came up with some inventive plans - particularly on how to make trees.

















Keeping ourselves safe around electricity...

Today we had a visit from the education officers from Wellington Electricity. We learnt all about the hazards of electricity and how to keep ourselves safe. Your child was given a booklet to bring home  with activities in it covering the topics we learnt about today.

Here are some pics....

Bucket Filling and Rangoli Patterns...

This week Raynik brought in some treats as part of his families Diwali celebrations. The class read about Diwali and we had a go at creating some rangoli patterns.

We have also been learning about how to be bucket fillers, not bucket dippers this week. Today we had bucket filling Friday - everyone picked someone from the class and gave them a certificate to say how they had seen them being a bucket filler this week. It was great to see how happy this made everyone. We learnt the important lesson that we can fill our own bucket by filling other peoples buckets (being nice to others makes us feel good!).

Healthy Eating

This week we have been learning about the healthy eating pyramid and how healthy food is the motor that keeps our engine (body) running. The children had to consider what category certain foods fell into such as meat, fruit and vegetables, dairy and grains. Lots of items ended up in the junk food pile!
