Welcome Kirra

Today we welcomed Kirra to Room 2. She has come from Australia. Her Mum used to go to Brightwater School. It was a great day to start because we spent the day at Natureland and the beach.

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.
