Tecnology with Sewing

Here we are using paper to practise our weaving skills. We have to remember to go "over and under over and under." It is a tricky but with a bit of patience we can do it. This is helping us learn the basic weaving skill for when we start sewing with a needle and some hesian.

Omni Gym

We had a blast learning new fundametal skills at Omni Gym! You can see us practising on some of the Omni Gym equipment. We would love to go back again next year.

Greedy Cat

During this term we have been reading books about Greedy Cat written by Joy Cowley and this is what the children know about Greedy Cat's Character. Their responses to questions about Greedy Cat have been published on Wordle and this image has been taken from Wordle. If you click on the image you will see a much bigger image of it.

We were so lucky to have lots of Grandparents join us in our classroom for Grandparents day. We loved sharing our whanau tree with our Grandparents. We then made photo frames with our Grandparents which had a photo of us in it. Our Grandparents were very happy to be able to take this away with  them at the end of the day. Thank you to all Grandparents that came to share the day with us.

             We went hunting around the school for different shapes. We have been learing about what makes one shape different from another. We are learning about sides and corners of a shape. Here are a few pictures of what we found.

We love our Grandparents!

We love our Grandparents! We have worked hard to produce our portraits of our Grandparents. We have been learning about shapes in K2 and we have found that we can transfer that learning and use it in art. By following simple instructions we each created a drawing of our Grandparent. Enjoy reading why we love them so dearly.

We love our Grandparents!

We have been learning about shape in K2. So we used this knowledge to create our own portraits of our Grandparents. By listening to instructions and using shapes we know we created art work that we are all so proud of!

Enjoy looking at our art work and reading about why we love our Grandparents!

Book Character Dress Up!

Don't we look fantastic! 
K2 really got into the dress up spirit last Friday to help celebrate a great book week. We love dressing up and it also gave some of us the opportunity to talk and learn about book characters. We particulary liked hearing what each other had dressed up as.

Is anyone there?

Nastacia is using an olden day telephone at the Waipawa Settler's Museum. "We have cell phones now and they fit in your pocket," said Nastacia. We wondered how they used to phone different people, because we couldn't see any buttons to push. Lucky we were in the right place to ask questions and find out the answers to our questions.

Millie's Museum Moment....

Millie is at the Waipawa Settler's Museum and she is having a go at writing with the old style writing tip pens. Millie found it a bit tricky as the ink kept running everywhere. You did a great job Millie.

Breakfast in K2

We had a blast making breakfast together. We have been learning to work together. While we made our breakfast we were having to use all of the key competencies. We had to help one another, listen, take turns and follow instructions.

After we had eaten our toast and milo we then did our dishes. Back in class we did a flow map showing the sequence of what we had to do to make our own toast and milo.

Our big book this week is "Bubbles". After reading it together we talked about why the bubbles went up, up, up. "The wind makes the bubbles go up," said Benjamin. So we had to investigate...we went outside to blow our bubbles and found that Benjamin was right.

The Butterfly Colors Song

Here is a great song to help you to remember all the colour of the rainbow. Listen and watch carefully.

Playdough letters

We are learning to form the letter a. We used playdough to help us to remember what an "a" looks like.
