Feilding High School Visit

Today the school was treated with a special concert put together by some Feilding High School Students. We listened to them sing and play a variety of music. The best part was the end ... a bit of grunge.

Some of us got up and jumped around to the music. What a fun visit!

At the end of today, our buddy class joined us in Room 3 to explore some apps on our new i-pads. We experimented taking photos, recording our voices to create characters and scenes with Telegami. It was great to have our 'big' Room 5 buddies helping us.

Transformation and Orientation

In room 3, we are learning about moving shapes using sliding ( translation), turning (rotation) and flipping (reflecting).

Here is an example ...

With a buddy, we played a 'robot' game. One person had to guide their buddy through a maze made out of chairs. They had to use the words turn right, left, a quarter turn, half turn, forwards, backwards, etc to get their buddy from one side of the maze to the other.

Parent, can you help us at home with using the words 'left', and 'right'?

Welcome Jonti

We have a new addition to Room 3. His name is Jonti Leary. He is a Year 3 student who has come to us from Ashhurst School.

The boys are excited to have another 'lad' in the class.

Gymnastics Display

On Friday, the whole school demonstrated their gymnastics skills in front of parents.
It was great to see the clever routines the senior children could do, and also to watch the younger students. We have some very talented gymnasts at our school!
