The Twits + Kiwi Team Celebration this week

Room 10 has been doing a book study on The Twits by Roald Dahl.

It is a hilarious novel that tells a story about a husband and wife who love to prank each other in the most crazy and disgusting ways.

We have been doing descriptive writing in class and The Twits has been a perfect example to teach us about descriptive language. 

Today we brainstormed in groups different adjectives to describe Mr and Mrs Twit. 

On Friday at our Kiwi Team Celebration, we will share our wonderful drawings and character descriptions!

We hope to see you there!

Golden Time!

This week Room 10 students have been working super duper hard to get themselves onto our superstar on the board for the entire week... because that means they get to enjoy Golden Time on a Friday. 

Today we got to have lots of fun blowing bubbles outside on the field. There was lots of wind which made for some pretty awesome bubbles flying all over the place! It was very cool watching the children's excitement and the amazing language they were using to describe the different bubbles. 

After we had used up all our bubble mixture we headed back inside the classroom to brainstorm all the different adjectives we could think of to describe the bubbles. On Monday we will begin our descriptive writing about the bubbles! I can't wait to share some of our writing with everyone next week. In the mean time, here are some photos!

The Botanical Gardens

Today was AWESOME!

I bet there are going to be some super duper tired kiddies tonight. 

What a day we had! First we went to the Potter's Children garden.
We got to plant our own beans into small pots, then we planted radish seedlings into the garden. 
It was pretty cool because we planted the radishes into the soil on our own. We even put in sheep poo into the soil and then watered the radishes with worm pee... needless to say, we found this pretty funny!

Then we learnt about the life cycle of a bean, what plants needs to grow and survive and we even checked out a worm farm using magnifying glasses to spot the different sized worms... Miss Glen wasn't a fan of the worms though!

More photos to come from our Photo Challenge soon :)

Lunch boxes

Attention Parents!

As hard as I try to monitor the children's eating - there is still a number of children who have full lunch boxes at the end of lunch time. 

We have talked about the importance of eating our lunch during morning tea and lunch break and not running off to play with our friend's before the Duty Teacher can check.

Can you please has this chat with your child at home? I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks for the photos Jay

I need help - What do I call our new Lamb?

 Spring is here!

On Father's Day I went and visited my Parents out in the country. I was pretty excited to find that one of the Sheep in the paddock had given birth to a baby Lamb. 

My Dad let me know this evening that on closer inspection he is in fact a boy! Now what do I call him?

Comment with some ideas below :)

Guess what we did on Friday?

We wanted to learn about the function of the stem of a flower... So what better way to see how the stem sucks up water than to put a Carnation stem into coloured water. 

We came up with predictions as to what we thought might happen. Turns out our predictions were correct.

You should try this at home!

Planting Day!

Place Value

Here is a video of one of our maths groups in Room 10. They are learning about 3 digit numbers.

We rolled three dice, each number representing the ones, tens and hundreds in a 3 digit number. We then created this number on our paper cups.

This is a fun and easy way to learn about the value of numbers.

Have a go at home!

Please leave a comment - I would love the feedback :)

If you are unsure if your child has this yet or not, please come in and see the list of names on our whiteboard.

Thank you,
