Super Hero Day

Today was Super Hero Day! Everyone came to school dressed up as a super hero, including the teachers, teacher aides and Mrs Otter!

After each class paraded around the court, some children were awarded with a treat for their costumes. Then the whole school had a bit of a boogy - just for fun!

The gold coin donations the children gave go to the Make A Wish Foundation, which raises money for very ill children to do something they've always dreamed of doing. What a good cause.

Thanks to the student council for organising and running this event.

Buddy Class

Yesterday Room 3 teamed up with our buddy class - Room 6. We had a Trust Walk challenge.
First our  big buddies blindfolded us, and led us through an obstacle course. We had to listen to their instructions carefully.

Then it was OUR turn to lead our big buddies. There were a few little 'bumps' here and there when we forgot to tell our  buddy to 'duck' or 'lift your leg', but we all had lots of fun. It was great to interact with the older kids in our school.

Thanks Miss Simpson and Room 6 for setting up the course and being great role models.

Measuring in Maths

We have been learning to estimate and measure length and capacity using cm,metres, millilitres and litres.

We started our unit by measuring our smiles, then using our 'smile lengths' to measure objects in our room. Then we used our rulers to measure objects. We estimated and measured distances outside. We are now learning to estimate and measure capacity (how much liquid containers hold) and are using millilitres and litres as our units of measurement.

It gets a bit messy, but it's fun!
