Half way through Term 2!

Wow! We have been so busy that time has flown by this term.

This term Ms Lockhart has been working on measurement (length). We picked two children, drew around them on cardboard, then measured their length with different items around the room and compared our findings.

There was Wacky Hair day in week 3 and Rm 1 children were very creative with their hair-do's.

The children are enjoying the letter/blend of the week sharing. We had 'W' and 'sp' one week and had some interesting sharing. Watch and wind.

Sprigs and Spiderman.

We then made spiders and their webs.

Lately, we have had a local cat come and hang out in Room 1.

This has inspired the children in their writing!

End of Term 1 2018 already!

This term has been busy, busy, busy. Our students both old and new are back into their routines.
 We have been trying out new activities for writing.

The children have also been working with Ms Lockhart to make their own Greedy Cat books. A long with the books they made a huge cat door to use to exit the class!

Our letter and blend of the week has been a great success! We will continue with this next term.

The letter and blend of the week (p and pr) coincided with the purple mufti day at the end of term.

We had lots of purple happening in the class.

Welcome to 2018

Room 1 has had a busy start to the year!

Our first few weeks back have been disrupted with the school closing due to the weather. However, in-spite of this Room 1 students have been hard at work getting back into the class routines. 

We have welcomed six new students to our class and they are already putting lots of effort into their classwork.


But it hasn't been all work and no play!
The children have been enjoying swimming almost every day.

End of 2017

What a busy Term 4 Room 1 has had! There was the pet day, swimming lessons, Topic work, the visit to Reefton Hospital to see the Christmas display and Room 1 and Room 2's big day out.

We finished up our topic 'Aboriginal Myths and Legends' with some fabulous art work.

The children also re-told some of the myths in their shared writing.

The last two weeks of school have been full of making Christmas art, with some amazing results!

Today we had our big day out. Room 1 and 2 started with boat making and crafts in the morning. After morning tea, we went over to the Domain for some games organised by Room 6 (a BIG thank you to Mr Davey). Then we went down to the river to try out our boats and have a picnic lunch.

A great day was had by everyone.
Thank you to all the parents who came to join us in the fun.

Week 5

Room 1 has been working hard on our topic (Aboriginal Myths and Legends) for this term. We have been listening to stories, experimenting with dot art, and making boomerangs.

The children made paper boomerangs that really fly!


We have also been working on our wall display of the 'Aboriginal Dream-time'.
The children have coloured some beautiful Australian animals and lovely 'body paint' to their 'humans'. It looks amazing!

This term we had a change to our sharing. The children had to bring along something that started with the letter or blend of the week. It has been a huge success, the children have been very creative with their sharing!


We have Cohen with his Fish in Frozen Ice in a Fry Pan, and Trelise with her picture Frame.

Mrs Wallace added to the fun by helping the children make Flowers last Friday. They are very beautiful!
