EOTC Week - Botanical Gardens

We are having an amazing week in Room 1.  We had fun but also did some serious learning.  Yesterday's trip to the Botanical Garden was a highlight so far.  I bet little people had a good nigh't sleep after a very busy day.

Ready for morning tea on a beautiful morning.

Life cycle of plants

We were very engaged.

Look at the beautiful flowers:)
We were very careful with the precious plants.

"Look Mrs Fourie, I have done it!"

"Good job, Chloe!"

Bella and Gabriel loved digging in the garden.  

One of the many beautiful spots.

Towards the end of the day we had to sit down more often.

Marine Reserves

As part of our "under the sea inquiry"  Experiencing Marine Reserves offered a fully funded Road Show for the Kiwi Team yesterday at school.  

The presentation included a powerpoint, "treasure box" and classroom activities. The powerpoint explained the marine biodiversity of the Manukau Harbour and New Zealand and in conjunction with a treasure box of marine creatures it created a fantastic hands on learning experience. The Auckland Regional council has provided them with funding so the presentation was completely free.

Fun Friday.

On Friday we were very excited!   We had many of our preschool friends visiting us.  To top it all up our Room 8 buddies organised some super fun games for us on the soccer field.  The parachute was a definite highlight and with the wind blowing strongly, it was so much fun!  Thank you Room 8, this was a special treat for us!

Clever learners.

Well done to all of the students in Room 1 that are trying so hard to learn all their basic ring words.  It is  so great to celebrate success and the achievement of goals daily.  We know that all your heart work and effort will help you in your future learning.
Congratulations Veronique on moving onto your red words.
Well done Bella, onto green!

How cute were we?

Mrs Lynch and Mrs Fourie was so proud of our lovely "Mexican hat dancers" during production night. They looked fabulous and did their very best.
