Speed Stacking Success

The children had a great afternoon today taking part in both individual and team events at a speed stacking event. To succeed everyone needed a good level of concentration and coordination, but most importantly perseverance. We even managed to bring home medals for 1st and 3rd places! Well done everyone!

Bizarre Babies Workshop

To kick start this week’s celebration of science week, this morning we had a really interesting workshop with a number of bizarre creatures. Despite a few nervous feelings by some, everyone was brave enough to either touch or hold animals such as snails, snakes, hermit crabs and millipedes. At the same time we learnt about how the different animals change as they grow.

Counting Fun

To help us practise our counting in 2s, we played a game where we muddled up our shoes. The children then did a fantastic job at pairing them up again and counting as they went.

A Class full of Teddy Bears

Starfish Class transformed today by turning themselves into teddy bears! It was hard to recognise them as they recited a poem that they had learnt by heart.

An Interesting Arrival

We received a special delivery today of some very tiny eggs. However we’re not exactly sure what they are. So after a close examination of them, the children made some guesses which included ants, caterpillars, cockroaches and even snakes! I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

A Class of Artists

After the visit from local artist Shane Record yesterday, we were inspired to do some of our own art work today. We decided to draw self portraits which involved lots of studying ourselves in the mirror. First we had to sketch the shape of our face, before adding in the detail of our eyes, mouth and nose. The children did a great job of concentrating really hard to try to capture their true likeness.
