We have had another busy week at school some of the highlights would be -
On Thursday we had a session with some coaches from United soccer. We thoroughly enjoyed kicking the ball around.

Week 2 Term 1 2010

As a class we have been exploring our school vision ' A connected community of positively engaged learners. We have explored what learning is and what we need to do in our classroom to make it a great place to learn. We decided we needed to
Be kind
Help each other.
Do our best
Make new friends
Try new things.


This week we have read the shared book 'I can jump'. It is about a snail who found that although it couldn't jump like a grasshopper or run like a spider or fly like a butterfly, it could slide. We became very interested in snails and some of us painted one -

Look at our snails.

Mr Barnes our school caretaker found us a snail in the school grounds. We watched it slither on the clear plastic and were fascinated how it could hang upside down. We got to look how its foot worked


Using the class camera we took our very first photos for the year. We all did our very best. (Click on the images below to enlarge them)




We will use these photos to label the parts of a snail on Kidpix next week.
