Cockroach stories!!!

The motivation for these stories began at assembly when a cockroach crawled out of the  "Caught being good Box" and up Miss Robinson's arm. The stories about cockroaches came thick and fast so we wrote some of them down. You have to agree we got some true personal voice from this writing.

I saw a cockroach in my house and I said "gross" and "I don't like them". I told my Mum and my Mum flushed it down the toilet.     Lachlan

"Oooow a cockroach."
 "Where,where?" said my sister.
She said "Kill it! kill it!" to my brother.       Anahera

My Mum saw a cockroach under her head. She said "Yuck". The cockroach went on the floor.

I saw a cockroach in the noodles.I killed it with the fly spray.     Vincent

I saw a cockroach on my foot. I flipped it off my foot and the cockroach was gone somewhere. "yuk", said my Mum.   Rebecca-Marley

The cockroach went in Mum's T shirt and Dad killed it with his hands.   Neitana

Mum said "Get the jandal, Get the jandal".     William

Last weekend I went to do some fire wood and I saw a cockroach. It was on the wood and I squashed it with my finger.    Logan

When I turned three I went to a pool and a cockroach came to me and my   Mum and it climbed up my Mum's arm .
 I said "Oooow",  and I crawled out of the pool and took it out to the garden.

Cockroaches are disgusting.If you have a cockroach at your house you squish it and when I saw a cockroach  I said "Ooooow disgusting!"

Paper craft by Flo

We are lucky to have a Grandmother who is an expert at paper craft. She made the divine bunny masks for Easter and the gorgeous Mother's day cards that you all got from your children. She came in and worked with the children making these and did a wonderful job. She has made room 3 the envy of all the other teachers!

Flo takes classes too!

Sandwiches first!

Look at these clever kids who know to eat their sandwiches because they give them ENERGY!
for the healthy, delicious lunches Mums and Dads and Carers.

Term 2

We will continue with our Literacy Programme with a focus on Reading  and Writing. We  are learning Humpty Walls to read and to spell. You will find these in your child's Home learning book. Any time spent on these is very useful.

For Maths we will continue with Number and begin Measurement.

For PE we will be learning Gymnastics, training for the Cross Country (on Thursday of Week 6) and learning ball skills with a focus on kicking.

For Topic we are still Caring for ourselves with a focus on Dental Health. We are trying to educate children about the effects of sugar on our teeth as well as cleaning them regularly and  choosing milk and water to drink.

We are also doing Keeping Warm  and Our Senses for  science topics.

For Health we are having a visit from the Life Education bus and we will be covering Healthy Food choices again.

For Visual Arts we are doing painting and Photography. Keep an eye out for some excellent pieces.

We are also caring for ourselves by using our WITS to deal with conflict.

Walk away
Tell someone
Say something

The children may have told you that Mrs Youngman is going to be away for the rest of this term as she cares for her sick mother. We are really missing her but have the lovely, arty Miss Andrews to teach in her place. We are very lucky to have her available to step in.

We also have Abby Webber, a year One  teaching student from BTI coming in to do her teaching practice on a Wednesday and Thursday. It is great to have a competent pair of hands to help support your children's learning.

Can we have a box of tissues sent in with each child please? We use these as classroom supplies and with the cold weather coming we will be needing them.
Please come in to visit and check your child's work and if you have any concerns don't hesitate to contact me.
Kind regards Wendy Riordan
