Book Week

The other week we had Book Week! It was awesome because we got to dress up as a favourite book character on Friday. Miss McIntyre dressed up as Bad Jelly the Witch and Mr Smith came as the Fat Controler! During the week we went to lots of different classrooms to buddy read. In the afternoons different teachers came to read to us. We also had a book fair where you could choose books you liked and then get your mum or dad to come in and buy them. By Isla

Last Thursday Neil Sharsky from Graham Bradock art came to teach us about drawing. We had to draw lines with our writing pencils so we could get the shape of the duck right. Then we used an art pencil to go over the lines and shade in our birds. We did a pretty good job. The are up in the classroom so come and have a look!

We are learning about the Olympics and the sports and countries involved in it. Spellin homework will be coming home next week and we will also be practising our spelling heaps in class. We are starting to learn about paragraphs and complex sentences in our writing. Miss McIntyre is bringing in a suprise for us next week to help us with our writing! We wonder what it will be!!! Some of us are learning our times tables in maths! Others are working hard to learn about place value and basic facts. We have to get our art work done for the calendars and diaries!

This week we have been learning about ANZAC day. On Tuesday we skyped Miss McIntyres Grandad about ANZAC day. He should us his dad's medals and pictures of him in the army. His uncle died in the war at Gallpoli. He told us what type of planes and guns they used. They lived in a ditch called a trench in the war where they hid from enemys. They put sand bags around them. They got to Europe on a boat and it took 6 weeks to get there. Lots of people died in the war.

In the afternoon we had a war between Room 7 and Room 6. We put stripes on our face so we knew what side we were on. We talked over the walkie talkies. We had bean bags instead of guns. There were chairs with blankets on them so that we could hide from the other class. We are pretty sure we won our war.

On Thursday we made ANZCA biscuits. These were the biscuits that people made for the soldiers that were in the war. They made these biscuts because they don't go off very fast so they were still okay eat after being on the boat for a long time. They aren't too hard to make but you would probably need an adult to help you. They were ANZACtastic!

School Survey

Hi Guys,

It is the start of a new term. I hope you had great holidays with your friends and famlies.

Please can you ask an adult to help you with a survey about school. It will only take 10 minutes. It is important that you do this so that I know how you are feeling about school, what your goals are and how I can help you to achieve them.

Which book would you like to read next term?

Have a read about the books below and make a descision about which one you would like to read as a class next term. Once you have decided, vote for the book you would like to be read the most on the poll to the left. Remember don't judge a book by it's cover, know what the book is about so you can make an informed descision!

Charlotte's Web

The unforgettable story of a girl called Fern who loves a little pig called Wilbur. It tells how Charlotte A. Cavatica, a beautiful grey spider, saves Wilbur from the usual fate of nice fat pigs, by a wonderfully clever plan - a plan so original that no one else could possibly have thought of it!

Pippi Longstocking
A rollicking story of Pippi who lives without any grownups in a little house at the edge of the village. The matter-of-fact way in which her absurd adventures are related is one of the chief charms of this story.

The Big Friendly Giant is one of Dahls most lovable characters. Whether galloping off with Sophie nestled next to his ear; speaking his delightful, jumbled, squib-fangled patois; or whizzpopping for the Queen, he leaves an indelible impression of bigheartedness.


The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Lucy steps into the Professor's wardrobe -- but steps out again into a snowy forest. She's stumbled upon the magical world of Narnia, land of unicorns, centaurs, fauns! and the wicked White Witch, who terrorises all. Lucy soon realises that Narnia, and in particular Aslan, the great Lion, needs her help if the country's creatures are ever going to be free again.
