A bug life!

We have been learning to draw insects! Miss Tyman reversed photocopied our drawings to get the background black and the pencil white. Look how effective it looks!

We are going on a shape hunt!

For the next couple of weeks we will be learning all about Geometry. Today we went on a hunt around the school grounds to look for shapes! We learnt that there are shapes all around us !

Our latest master pieces!

Look at the art work we did towards the end of last term.  This was also part of our calendar art and a few have been put up in the school hall.
They ended up being so bright and colourful. They look confusing but it was pretty simple to create! We just used our imaginations and created lots of patterns and coloured it in with felts. Lastly, we out lined the patterns with black vivid.

We had our first session doing gymnastics on Monday and it was SOOOO MUCH FUN!
The new things we learnt were:

  • an exciting warm up relay 
  • how to run and jump on the beat board
  • how to land in a motorbike landing
Once we had practised the motorbike landing on the beat board, we then practised it more on the beam and on the trampoline. Landing in the motorbike landing was much harder than it looked. We had to try and keep our legs together and straight.

We have three more lessons at they gym. They are on Mondays and cost $4.Make sure you pay at the office or to Miss Tyman :)

Room 12's inquiry journey for term 3!!

A few weeks ago Miss Tyman let Room 12 play in the trees. We had so much fun climbing them!

There is one problem though..... We think that we need to make the trees more fun and then children will play in them more often. So....we then went back into the classroom and did a lot of wonderings on how to make the trees more  fun!
As a class, we decided that Lucas's idea was perfect and we would begin to look at some tree huts on Google images.

Lucas.D said a hut has to be STABLE- So Miss Tyman set us a challenge! It was to build any type of hut out of marshmallow, pasta and tape. We needed as many hands as possible to help construct the hut so it was important we worked together. It was really tricky to get the hut to be stable and stand by its self, but most of us managed because we persisted!!!

Annnnnnnd over the last week we have been designing our own tree huts out of ice block sticks. We are working in peers and it is so much fun! Once we have finished our model tree huts we will take them to Ms O'Connor and try to convince her to let us have real tree huts in the school trees !!!!!

Wanganui's newest builders!

We were all so excited about finally getting to use the construction table outside our classroom. We all learnt so much including Miss Tyman! Check out our boat we made by nailing two pieces of wood together. This fits in great with our Inquiry topic about building tree huts!
