We are tired but happy!

Weren't Room 3 amazing as fish,squid and sharks as they wrangled the Yellow Submarine. The children were amazing as they waited for ages and then coped with going on to a huge stage in the dark. It was a big ask for 5 and 6 year olds and took a lot of  courage to  go onto the stage and remember their song and actions. Well done!!!!

Production... Moana. Not the Movie September

Room 3 have lost some of their friends to Room 3 and we will still see them lots at playtime. We still feel a bit sad. We have kept a group of big children to be our "Experts" and they have been fantastic at helping our new children settle in. !4new children arrived ready and raring to go from Room 2. They are fantastic children who fit in beautifully and already have made lots of new friends. Here are some of their photos.

Photography competition

All Room 3 children had the opportunity too make a seashell Installation in the sandpit and to take a photo of it. We had discussed dark and light, interesting angles, black and white shots, reflections etc.  and looked at a great power point from Mrs Dunham.  Sadly the photos we took  didn't make it off the I Pad. ITR gremlins !!!!
Here is a link for the school finalists

Thank you Talitha

Room 3 have had Talitha come and help us every Wednesday morning. She has been training as a teachers aide and has come in to gain experience and complete some assignments.
Her real job is as an artist and she does the most amazing detailed pictures of birds and kiwiana antiques. She can take up to 6 months to complete one piece. She bought in some of her art to show us and then she took the children for lessons . We drew the sparrows we see everyday at morning tea.

Thank you so much for all your help Talitha. We will miss you.

This link will take you to information about the Safe Sneezes practices in Room 3. This is really important at this time of the year as the  "bugs and boogies " start to spread.

What makes 10.

This group are learning number facts that make 10. Everyone had 10 two sided  counters. They threw them and recorded how many different number stories they could make.

Fantastic thinking.

Making 6

These children worked very hard to work out addition facts to 6. They drew a hen house and then had 6 chickens to put inside or outside.They then recorded their findings. Great learning.

Choosing with Room 2

Room 2 and Room 3 got together for some choosing last Thursday. It is cool fun exploring each others classrooms and playing together.
