Charlie - the fabulous teacher!

One day Mrs Watson was a little late back to class. She was very impressed when she arrived to see her amazing class all reading The Grumpy Rhino. Charlie did a fantastic job of being the teacher! Check out the great expression the children are using to make the story more interesting.

Our magical teacher!

Today the Year 3's were getting ready for gymnastics and decided to make a human dominoes trail.
Maggie took at video of us on the iPad and emailed it to Mrs Watson to put it on the blog. Enjoy!

Perfect Passport Practice!

Kaylee found three different ways to practice skip counting in 3's today at maths time. Well done Kaylee!

How do you practice your maths passport goals?

Craft Day 2012

On Friday we had Craft Day.  The children were extremely creative and submitted numerous entires.  We visited other classrooms, set up market stalls and even got to watch a fashion show during assembly.  Have a look at our pictures to get a better idea of how the day went.

Do you love laughing? What about poems? Check this out!

I have recently found this great site. It has lots of funny poems.
A few of these could be read instead of a browsing book if your child feels like doing something different.
I have put a link on our Home Learning Page and by clicking on the picture below.

Amazing information about butterflies and moths!

On one of our earlier posts someone asked us what were the differences between moths and butterflies.

We challenged ourselves to find the answers to that question.

Tor found out that:

Butterflies fly during the day.
Moths fly at night.

Moths are usually brown or grey.
Butterflies can be lots of different colours.

Moth have feathered antennae
Butterflies have stalk antennae.

Tor found his information from his brother.

Regan found out that:

Butterflies have slender hairless bodies.
Moths have fat and furry bodies.

Regan found his information on the internet.

Alex found out that:
Butterflies have more colour and moths don't.
Butterflies fly in the day and moths fly at night.
Butterflies are skinny and moths are fat.

Alex found his information on his Dad's iPad.

We wrote this post together as a class at oral language time.

Today at Choice and Challenge the students were very adventurous and challenged themselves in different ways. Ben and Sam G tried painting blindfolded. Alex, Caz and Chloe mixed primary colours (red, yellow or blue) to make new colours and create a picture. And Gemma tried a new painting technique that she hadn't tried before. Well done for being so adventurous today!
