Thank you to all the parents who helped the children of room one with their homework challenge this week. The plate masks were amazing. Can you work out what book character we each are?

Science and Technology week

During science and technology we explored making umbrella's. We worked in teams - taking turns and listening to each others suggestions. We made umbrella's of all different shapes and sizes. We had a lot of fun. Enjoy the photos below.

The rain forest express

We were so happy that the sun was shining on Tuesday as we headed out to the Waitakere Ranges.
Below are some photos we captured on our journey as we travelled on the Rain Forest Express to see the Upper Nihotupu Dam. From the Dam we walked out of the bush to catch the bus.  It was an action packed day where we saw a lot of water!!!

The cycle of water

The term is under way and it is raining - which is appropriate as we start our unit of work on 'Water'.
During the term we will explore ....... 
How we use water everyday
How important water is to every living thing
The water cycle
The importance of keeping our water ways clean 
The impact of the quality of the water on animals/creatures that live within it. 

During this term we have a trip planned to the Rainforest Express to view a dam first hand and a visit from Sally Smith from watercare who will help us explore the difference between storm water and waste water.
