Merry Christmas everyone. We hope you all have  happy and safe holidays with family and friends.

Seth At Pets Day

On Friday I brought my birds and they had to have
two people to carry them. Their names are Ra an Manu. Mine is Manu and Hade's is Ra. Ra is yellow and green and has little black spots and  eats lots of  food and lots of water.  They are very loud and every day we put them outside

We have made kete's which is the maori name for bags. We used warp and weft, under and over to weave the card to make our bags. We dyed the bags the colour of flax to make them look real and then we decorated them with feathers and shells. We plaited the handle. We think they look fantastic. Kete's on PhotoPeach

Letters From Room 17 at Russley

Today we got a very special envelope in the mail. It had fantastic pictures all over it. When we opened it up there were letters for every single person in our class and there were photos so we could see what our pen pals looked like. We were very excited reading our letters. We will write back next week because we are going to Natureland tomorrow and we are hosting assembly this week so we are rather busy.

Breanna and Lucy made slime at discovery this morning.
They put 1 cup of Luxflakes in the bowl with 1 cup of boiling water and some red food colouring. Then they beat it with the electric beater until it was thick.
Lots of us had fun playing with it. It was gooey, sticky, slippery, slimy. It smelt nice and made our hands feel smooth when we washed them.

Milk in Room 2

Today was the first day we had milk in our classroom. We had it straight after play when we were "Reading To Self". We also learnt how to fold the cartons for recycling. We will get faster at folding with more practise and we need to remember to drink every last drop of milk. We need to make sure the straw is right down in the bottom and to tip the carton towards us. Thanks Fonterra.

New Mini IPad

Today we got our new mini iPad. RJ was the lucky one to try it out for the first time.

Booster Rooster Visit

This morning we went to the library to see Booster Rooster and Vannessa from Plunket. We had to shout loud to wake Booster Rooster up. 
Booster Rooster told us it is safer to travel in the backseat.
The new law says we need to be in a car seat or a booster seat until we are seven years old.
Plunket recommends children travel in car seats or booster seats until they are 148cm tall.

There were no children in Rooms 1,2 or 4 who were more than 148cm tall.

Holly was only 132 cm tall so she should still use a booster seat to be really safe.
