Sketching Insects

Today some of us viewed insect body parts under a magnifying glass.
It was amazing to see the scales of a butterfly's wings close up.
Some of us studied a cicada's legs.

We had to sketch EXACTLY what we saw ...

Here are some of our sketches ...

Playing Tennis

Yesterday, we had our first tennis coaching session. Wilton got us to practise holding the tennis racket correctly and bounce a tennis ball on the ground.
It was tricky! The balls went everywhere to start with, but the more we practised, the better we got.

We had turns at hitting the ball over the net. For some of us, it was our first time ever holding a tennis racket!

We are looking forward to next week's session.

Produce from the garden

Today, just before home time, we had a special treat. Miss Jeynes took us outside under the tree, and we had freshly made sandwiches!

On our sandwiches we had ingredients that came from the class gardens ... cucumber, lettuce, beetroot AND boiled eggs (thanks to the chooks).

It's great to eat treats that we grow. Now we're just waiting for Room 3's corn to harvest.

What a nice way to end the day!

Buddy Class

On Friday afternoon, Room 5 (our Buddy class) taught us how to play Rounders.

It was good fun hitting the ball with the tennis racket. We had to run around the cones and stop at one before the pitcher called out "Stop!"
Some of us got out, but a lot of us made home runs.

Thanks Room 5 for working with us as a team.

Constable Cree Visit

Constable Cree came to visit Rooms 2 and 3 last week. She talked to us about the emergency services - FIRE, AMBULANCE and POLICE.
We practised using old cell phones to make a 111 call. We had to say our ful name, address and phone number.

We watched a DVD called Brian And Bobby. Poor Bobby (the dog) was lost in a mall and began to panic. But then he remembered what to do...

We learnt about What Is An Emerency - and when we should OR shouldn't ring 111.

Thanks Constable Cree!
