Inquiry - Curtain, Growing and Science Committee

For inquiry we are raising money to get some things for our classroom. We are doing it so our learning space is more comfortable and we think it will help us learn better.

There are three groups:
1. The Curtain Committee
2. The Growing Committee
3. The Science Committee

We talked about what we liked and didn't like about our classrooms and decided to focus on three areas that everyone agreed needed some work.

Helen and Corrina let us (the children) decide on the things we wanted to get the most. It was cool because otherwise we might not have liked what they did. We all chose the group we were going to be in and some people wrote letters to Helen and Corrina to be one of the leaders.

This is a picture of the Curtain Committee working together to figure out what we are going to do to get new curtains. We want new curtains because the sun is too bright in our eyes and distracts us from learning. We think dark blue curtains will suit our room and us the best. We are talking about fundraising ideas and ways to solve our problem.

Craft Day Fun

On Friday we had craft day and it was so much fun! We really enjoyed making things at home and then bringing them to show at school. We also really liked making sand saucers and vege creations at school.

The play in assembly was really funny and the sunflowers looked so good.

The best part was the markets at the end because we got to buy and sell things, and raise some money for our new curtains for our class that we want to get.

That is awesome - can't wait to see what someone will come up with next.

A Snapshot

Here is a small snapshot of our Junior Triathlon on Friday. We had such a lovely afternoon. All of the children tried their hardest, especially the run at the end!

Well done JLT, we're so proud of you all being so adventurous, even when it seemed hard.
