The Room 5 Super Star chairs use to be Georgia and Olivia’s Princess chairs many years ago. They use to sit in them for snacks, meals, crafts, playdough fun but out grew them. Soooooooo they are now Super Star classroom chairs. Thought the children might enjoy this blast from the past. They are certainly very loved chairs still! Lots of little people get to enjoy them now which is perfect!
We had time for a quick game of Duck Duck Goose before lunch!!!!
Lucky Room 5 won the school kete last week at assembly – which is a beautiful collection of Te Reo activities, stickers, treats and lessons for us to do over the fortnight we have the kete in our class. Today we used the special stickers and made some Koru art – learning about what Koru’s mean in Maori. Come and have a look next time you are in Room 5.
Thank you William for bringing in Chinese New Year crackers for everyone in Room 5. William is going to give them out at home time.
Today Alexandra shared some facts about Chinese New Year. One of the traditions is to not wash or shower today or clean floors as you need to focus on family, joy and the New Year. Vanessa told us about the Chinese New Year party she went to last night in a restaurant.
Happy Chinese New Year everyone. Two year 5 girls, Claudia and Zoya, came and did a wonderful presentation to us on Chinese New Year. Then they helped us make Lucky Red Packets which is a Chinese tradition – you put money inside.
It was the senior swimming sports day today at the University Pools, just behind KTS. We went on a little adventure and watched a couple of the final races.
It was exciting to see Olivia win the finals!!!!! Mrs Brown’s little sporty fish daughter.
In writing today we wrote, “I love…” sentences and Stella loves Mrs Brown’s ring. You have great taste Stella!!!
We learnt some Te Reo vowel sounds today with Miss K.
Lucky Room 5 has Miss Lee in our classroom for the next 5 school days. Miss Lee is studying to be a teacher in Korea and is observing life in a New Zealand classroom as part of her studies. Welcome Miss Lee!
