Today is the last day of school for Term 1!  It was also CRAZY DAY - and everyone got very creative, dressing up in all sorts of weird costumes.

We had a parade in the hall to show our costumes to the other classes, then everyone had a bit of a boogie.

Here are some photos ...

Hockey Fun

Today rooms 3 and 4 were lucky to have some students from Feilding High School come and teach us some hockey skills.  We learnt how to hold a hockey stick, dribble a ball, and stop a ball.

It was a quick half hour session, but we learnt a lot in a short space of time!
Some of us are really keen to play Hockey now. Thanks Feilding High School.

Sprint Races

Today the whole school got together for sprints. The grass was still quite wet from all the rain we've had, but the sun was out, and we had lots of fun. (Especially sliding to a stop at the end!)

Here are some photos from today ...

Hunting Mosquitoes

Last week Room 3 kids had lots of fun observing the MILLIONS of mosquito larvae and pupae in the school swimming pool. We read a book about mosquitoes and this is what we learnt. ...

Did you know that mosquitoes lay their eggs on water in groups called RAFTS?

Mosquito larvae are also known as 'WRIGGLERS' because they wriggle through the water.

Mosquito pupae are called TUMBLERS. They breathe underwater through long tubes that poke up to the surface of the water. These are called TRUMPETS.

Do you know why mosquito bites are itchy?  The female pokes a long needle-like proboscis into your skin. Her saliva mixes with your blood. This caused a chemical reaction and make you itchy.

Did you know only the FEMALE mosquitoes bite?  And it's only the females that make that high whining sound.
