Knitting Club

Every Tuesday and sometimes Wednesday we have knitting club. We are learning to knit a scarf.

Asher has already finished his scarf. Mrs Anderson teaches us how to knit. Once we've finished our scarf,we get to pick something else to knit. Asher will knit a teddy and Adam will knit a snowman teddy.
We still don't know how to start or  finish but Asher already knows how to finish a scarf.
At the start both of us didn't know how to knit.

Our School Gala

On Saturday I went to the gala with my mum and dad. When we got there I saw my friends and had a chat. After that I bought an ice-cream from the ice-cream truck. Then I got two lollybags and I listened to the bag pipes/ It started raining so we went back home. I felt happy after that.

The Crocodile builds a Treehouse

This year some of us have been reading stories about a Crocodile. Such as The crocodile in the Library, The Crocodile goes Shopping and The Crocodile's Christmas Jandels. We decided to write our own story and turn it into a movie.

As part of Food Tech Friday this week we learnt about how gelatin works. Did you know gelatin is made from boiling the skin and bones from animals! First we got to make some jelly and then we got to create our own. We needed to choose 1 liquid and we could also add a special ingredient. Some of us choose coke, sprite and fizzy raspberry while 1 group choose strawberry tea. We all decided to add sour lollies or chocolate chips. 

To make our jelly we first mixed 2tsp Gelatin with boiling water so it dissolved. Then we could mix in our other ingredients. We found that the dissolved gelatin didn't mix very well. This could have been because it was fizzy or because it was cold.

We left our jelly overnight and most of them set. Finally we got to taste! We're not sure if we liked our jelly and would probably choose different ingredients next time!

Days of the week

We have been learning the days of the week in Maori.
Ko te aha tenei ra? What day is it today.
Ko te Ratu tenei. It is Tuesday.

Once we knew how to say and write each day we could fill in our own weekly timetable.

Swim Safe

Swim Safe
Every day Room 7 walked to Water World for swim safe lessons. During these lessons we learnt about being safe in the water and practised our swimming so we were more confident in the water.

We went to water world to do swim safe there were 3 groups we did different swimming things there was a girl teacher and 2 boy teachers with the girl teacher we did back stroke and many more. We went every day for one week . I'm sure we all liked it. We were wearing different togs. I wish we got more time to do more swiming. The water was so warm. You can were gogiles.
