We have also been recapping our Māori numbers, playing matching games with a buddy, singing and clicking counting cards.
God looked at what he had done.
All of it was very good.
In Room 1 this week we have enjoyed continuing to watch our caterpillars grow and change. Another chrysalis is now on one of the swan plants. Today 5 new additions also arrived into the classroom - tadpoles! The class helped to make a backdrop for our new friends, drawing fish, bubbles, crabs, 'seaweed' and frogs.
This week we are continuing to show off what we already know! The children have shown their abilities to order numbers, visualise shapes, make patterns, and count 1-1. At home you can continue to practice by ordering Numicon shapes, counting, writing numbers, matching with shapes, counting objects such as buttons etc.
We also spent some time looking as and talking about patterns. We went for a journey around the school looking for patterns we could find or make. We also made patterns with multi-link cubes in the classroom and discovered patterns can be by colour or number.
We got the bubbles out this week after reading the big book bubbles! What a fun morning! Come into class to read the story we wrote together.

We have started off art for the year using crayons and dye. After tracing around the children they added in detail, their face, hair, clothing etc with crayon then finished off with dye. As new children enter the classroom throughout the year, this will be their first art piece! Watch our walls as the class grows!

This morning in devotions we read from Psalm 57:8-10 (CEV)
I feel wide awake! I will wake up my harp and wake up the sun. I will praise you, Lord, for everyone to hear, and I will sing hymns to you in every nation. Your love reaches higher than the heavens; your loyalty extends beyond the clouds.
We talked about how this person was so excited to praise and worship God because his love is so great! We responded in praise with the song Dancing Feet. Then before writing time listened to a woman play some music on the harp and wrote about what it sounded like or what we saw.
Song: Dancing Feet
Come into class to see what your child wrote about hearing the harpist's music.
Beauty and the Beast played on the Harp!
