Dog Safety

Today Rooms 2 and 3 had a special visitor. Kelly Jordan came to visit us with her dog Phoenix.
She taught us some safety rules to remember when we are around dogs.

We learnt ...
* Never touch a stranger's dog. Always ask permission to pat a dog
* Don't touch a dog's head. They can be threatened. It's better to pat it's back or neck.
* If a dog growls at you - DON'T look it in the eye. DON'T turn your back on it.
    Turn sideways. Back slowly away.

Ask us at home for some other tips we learnt!

Thanks Kelly and Phoenix!

Fun With Our Buddy Class

Room 3 and Room 5 are buddies!
This is all of us playing and co-operating together in the pool...

We loved the obstacle course, and learnt how to play flipperball.

Thanks Room 5 for helping us in the pool!

Fun At Foxton Beach

Yesterday Room3, along with the junior classes went to Foxton Beach.
We listened to the lifeguards. They talked to us about how to be safe at the  beach.

We learnt what a rip is, and how to see one at the beach.

Here are some photos of our day ...

We had lots of fun playing 'seaweed' and 'Captain's coming'. We really enjoyed building sandcastles too. Some of ours were HUGE!

The best part was getting into the water and leaping over the waves. Thanks so much to all our wonderful parents and family who helped us keep safe in the water.

Keeping Ourselves Safe

In Room 3, we've been learning about how to be safe at the beach, and also, how to be safe on the road.

We practised stepping up to the edge of the road, then taking a step back (so we're not standing where cars will travel). Then we look to the RIGHT, then the LEFT, then RIGHT again before crossing.

Easy as!

Room 3 children have been in the pool every day. We are learning lots of skills to help us be confident and safe in the water.

We are very lucky to have Mr Bramwell, a swimming coach, who comes in twice a week to help some of us extra help.

Here's a few pics of us in the pool ...
