Wow there have been so many things happening so far this term! We have had a great first 3 weeks! Here are some of the things we have been getting up to!
Football Each Friday for PE for weeks 1-4 we have Darren from Mid-Canterbury Football coming to teach us some football skills and play games with us.
Developmental Time This term we have had some new and different activities during developmental time. This week we made finger puppets of Putangitangi (paradise ducks - from one of our stories from the last week) and decorated star cookies to remember one of the promises God made to Abraham - that he would have a big, big family, more than the number of stars in the sky. We have also had some activities focusing on using our fine motor skill, problem solving and teamwork. We love developmental time!!
Devotions This term we are starting to look through a timeline of some of the stories through the bible (and linking the ideas to what we've learnt already this year.) We are learning about people in God's unfolding plan. We looked back to learning about Adam and Eve earlier this year and how God's world was perfect, but Adam and Eve made a bad choice. God still loved them (and us!) and wanted to make peace so sent Jesus. This week we learnt about promises God made to Abraham and will see how these promises are important in the big story!
Poetry Practice Next week we are sharing our poems on Tuesday in front of the Y0-2s and parents. Each day we have been practicing our poems in front of room 1. We are working on having a loud voice, actions, looking at the audience and talking with a good speed. Keep practicing over the weekend!!
Maths, months, numbers...
Lavalava Many of you will have seen our Lavalava's stuck to the inside (and outside) of the classroom. Mrs Coe brought in her Lavalava from Tonga and all of the class got a chance to wear it, we read the story and even made our own class book. On the back of our pictures, we drew a picture of ourselves and designed our very own Lavalava.
This blog is to provide updates and notices, share some of our learning, and to showcase our wonderful work.
