We learnt a lot of new skills during our athletics practice. We learnt how to run, jump and throw. We liked throwing the vortex and also the quoits. It was also lots of fun learning how to long jump!

Developing our fundamental skills!

Today we were using bean bags, scarves and bubbles to develop more skills. We had to balance a bean bag on our head and back and walk around. It was tricky. We also had to manage ourselves and watch bubbles without bursting them. After we watched them we were told to use one finger only to pop them. That took a lot of self management. We loved all of the activities today.

In He Puna Oranga (Room 4) we used paint and cotton buds to create an Autumn tree. We chose colours that were like the leaves that we had collected from around our school. We think that they look just like trees in Autumn.

In our class we were practicing writing the letter M. For our art learning investigation we created collage monarch butterflies because monarch begins with the letter M. We had to try to make both wings the same. It was quite tricky. We are going to make a display in our classroom using our butterflies.

Busy Learning New Things!

In Room 4 we have been learning a lot of new things. Some of us were making sentences using word blocks and we have started creating our Koru Families for Art. Making the koru shapes was very tricky!
