Life Caravan - Balanced Diet

We had the Life Caravan this week and our special topic was about 'balanced diet'. It was fun learning about this topic because we learned about food. 

We learned that we need to eat:
- Lots of ground food, 
- Sometimes of the animal product 
- Very little of the sugary food.

Keeping Ourselves Safe (KOS)

On Monday, we had the Police Helicopter landed on our big field at school. It was fun having it at our school.

There were four police officers in the helicopter and they looked so cool with their uniforms on.

Mrs Ripata took us around the helicopter and we took lots of pictures. We have learned that this Police helicopter has a big camera underneath to detect bad people from the sky. It is very big and round.

We were so excited about this and had so much fun. I think I would like to be a police officer in the future.

Making Connections to Life - Maths

We create problems as one way of learning about a new number. NUMBER TALK - we explore a new number by talking about what we know first. At the end we create a problem to show our understanding.

First Day at school

Diamond started school at the beginning of this term. She makes a lot of story using toys in the classroom. This is really good because it enables her to talk and to build her confidence to share stories with her peers.

Writing letter 'Ee'

Peiten has been learning to write the letter 'e' correctly. He uses little white board and a white board marker to do this. I teach Peiten a story that associates with letter 'e' and that helps him to form the letter correctly. Peiten makes a line first and then a semi-circle and that is how he writes letter 'e'.

Sivi on the other hand is learning to write the letter 'e' using this: draw a letter 'c' and then make a line from the top end to the middle of the letter 'c'. Sivi finds it easier to follow this instruction than the one Peiten is comfortable with.

Well done to both of you!
