On Tuesday we went to the Taniwha Daffodil Farm along with 220 other junior children. The weather was stunning. We were so excited. It was hard to contain our excitement while we were on the bus! We got to pick 20 daffodils each to take home. While we were there we were able to look at lots of different things that "change". We saw the daffodils of course and also a blossom tree. We noticed big swans there and we talked about how they have changed from little swans to big swans. 
It was a great day enjoyed by all! Thank you parents for sharing this day with us!

Have a look at us reading. Everyday we are learning new skills to help us become independent readers. Today we are remembering to point to the words while we read. We are also searching for the words we know and to use our letter sound knowledge to work through words we don't know.

Snazzy Shapes!

We are learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We are learning to create shapes and to then talk about how many sides and corners a shape has. 
We have used sticks on the mat to create shapes. We then used tooth pick sticks and blue tack to create shapes. The blue tack helped us to manipulate our shapes and it really helped us to think about the number of sides a shape has.
