Week 2 we started our daily homework and Murtle's visits home. Next week we start our sharing around the letter or blend of the week.
Last week Room 1 started with our greeting for the week in Te Reo, this was Kia Ora.
Next week we will have the Spanish greeting Ola.
In week 1 we made some progress on our topic wall. The children made leaves to go on the huge beanstalk after reading Jack and the Beanstalk. We had a huge discussion on what might have happened to Jack and his mum if the magic beans hadn't grown. Watch this space for some creative writing in that direction!
Next we plan to add some of the Fairy-tale characters that we will be studying.
At the end of May, Awahono School will be having it's annual Fun Run. To be ready for this, Room 1 has started having a practice run every morning. So far the weather has been kind to us and we haven't missed a day.
Here is Room 1 warming up for our run.
Week 2 was Road Safety week. Room 1 was learning about crossing the road safely. The children each made a picture about where was the safest place to walk or ride a bike by the road. They then stuck all their pictures onto a poster to share.
The end of week 2 was busy with making Mothers Day cards for the lovely, hard working mums of the children in Room 2. Lots of love and effort went into the great cards the children made.
Happy Mothers Day to all our mums this Sunday!
Next Thursday is Support Staff Day. We are really grateful to all our support staff. They do an awesome job supporting the students and teachers.
