Goodbye Miss Cole and Happy Birthday Tali

What a busy Friday with happy and sad all rolled into one.

First we had to say goodbye to the wonderful Miss Cole whom we all love very much.  We wish her every happiness and success on her new journey!

We then got the chance to share in Kinitali's 6th birthday celebration.
We sang Happy Birthday and then Tali shared pizza and ice-blocks with us all.
He was the perfect host and we wish Tali a very, very happy 6th birthday.

Kahurangi Maori Dance Company

We were so lucky to have the Kahurangi Maori Dance Company come to school today and perform for us.

They shared with us some Maori myths and legends while they sang and danced.

The music and dance were so beautiful and we felt very lucky to listen, watch and learn from these talented people.

Discovery Time Construction

Today during discovery time Ms. Bonsey gave us 30 straws, a roll of sellotape and a plastic egg filled with counters.

 With our friends we had to construct a tower that would support our egg.
We worked so well in our groups and after much talk and trial and error - we did it!

(we do think Ms. Bonsey may need some more sellotape 😀)

Keeping Healthy.

In Room 5 we are always learning new things about how to keep ourselves healthy.

Miss Cole helped us set up an experiment to see what some drinks do to our teeth.

We used coke, milk, water and powerade and along with a piece of bone (our teeth) we placed each in a container.
We are going to observe them to see what these drinks will do to our teeth.

We have made a prediction and in several weeks we will check to see if we were right!

Welcome Back to Term 2!

Welcome back to Room 5!

We hit the ground running in Room 5 and we have all come back from our break ready to learn!
We have been sorting, classifying and comparing shapes and we really showed Ms. Bonsey our thinking skills as we sorted the shapes in lots of different ways according to their attributes.
