Book Week!
Room 3 loved Book Week and all of the fun activities it brought. We studied Dr Seuss for the week and read many of his wonderful books! We made Horton ears from Horton Hears a Who, we made hot air balloons from Oh the Places You'll Go! We had a book character dress up day, bedtime stories evening, visits to the 'Happy Campers' Book Fair, Senior students reading to our class, a grandparents afternoon, we made a book for Kindy that we took over and presented, we read 19 books for the reading chain competition, the list goes on... it was a super fun week enjoyed by all.

Our Bread Making!
In Room 3 we have been learning about the Little Red Hen, so this week we decided to make some bread. 
We all worked really hard together as a team and have learned a lot about the fact that "many hands make light work". Ka rawe Room 3!

Life Education
During week 7 we visited the Life Education truck to learn some more about one of our Term 2 topics, 'Healthy Eating'! This helped to reinforce our learning from the classroom about the importance of a balanced diet. 

We loved turning into blueberries, doing our 'Go Bananas' dance, making the food pyramid and ofcourse, meeting Harold!! Harold even helped us to sing Happy Birthday to Megan on her special day! Check out our cool pictures...

Science Alive!
Today we had a visit from Science Alive, where we did some science experiments and investigations all about water. This is our new topic for the first part of Term 2! 

During the session we learned about floating and sinking, the water cycle, states of water (solid, liquid, gas) and materials that absorb and repel water. We had SO much fun! Here are a few snaps... 

Miss Maxwell
From Week 2 to Week 8 Room 3 are going to be hosting a lovely student teacher, Miss Maxwell. Miss Maxwell is coming to us from the University of Canterbury where she is studying her GradDip in Teaching and Learning Primary. We are looking forward to her working with us!

Room 3 Makes Porridge
We made porridge, like in the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It was delicious and warmed our tummies, on a rainy cold day at school! 
While we waited for it to cool, so it wasn't too hot like Father Bear's, we wrote a story about it. Come and read these in our Writing books.
