Term 2
Week 6

This week we have been practising our knowledge of writing instructions through science experiments. We are able to write down an instruction that uses a title, equipment list, ordered instructions, bossy verbs, precise nouns, and descriptive verbs. Our science experiment this week was the food colouring milk experiment.

Term 2 
Week 5

This week we have had Samoan Language week. The children enjoyed learning about different greetings, numbers, expressions, and feelings in Samoan. AS a class we decided to make a Room 1A Tapa. The children researched different Samoan patterns and we created our Tapa.

We also worked hard on our Maori Tiki Art that is now also displayed in the school foyer. We were working on using patterns and showing different colour combinations.

Term 2 
Week 3

This week we have been very busy getting into the groove of our Technology projects. The children are moving through the technology cycle and at each stage reflecting on what they have done and what is the next step. We had a fantastic trip the the Ashburton Ecocentre where the children saw the recycling centre, the rubbish pit being squashed into bins to travel up to Christchurch, and then choose things from the shop to contribute towards their project for our Technology unit this term. Thank you to Lesley who was a great tour guide and gave us a lot of information to think about.

We were also very thankful to have received the ANZ netball grant and receive brand new uniforms for our school. The children are happy with them and will be playing with pride out on the court with them for the rest of the season.

We received a very important letter from the Christchurch police last Friday. Room 1A and Miss Hannah felt very privileged receiving this and felt proud of our efforts to show thanks to the police officers on duty on that day.

Term 2
Week 1

Welcome back to Term 2!
We have had a fantastic start back to the term. This term our writing focus in on instruction and persuasions. We have started this off by looking and finding bossy verbs, precise nouns, and descriptive nouns in different instructions. We have been looking at recipe books and identify what is needed in an instructions and highlight those key vocabulary needed.

We have also been developing our visual mihi's representing where we have come from. We have been practising using a clear, loud, and enthusiastic voice. They are now on display in Room 1A.

Term 1
Week 11

As we wrap up the first term of 2019, Miss Hannah is so proud of Room 1a's work they have produced so far this year. This week we have been focusing on ANZAC Day and what it means for us and our country and we have created a display area with our representations of this in our class. You are more than welcome to come in and have a look.
On Wednesday we also made ANZAC Biscuits to take home (i hope they made it home without being eaten) we were learning to measure, pour, take turns, read, write and follow instructions, and bake some goodies! Here are some pictures.

Term 1
Week 9

The year 4/5/6 overnight camp was a great success. The children really enjoyed being able to set themselves up in a tent and to organise themselves so they are ready to camp out. They loved the rotation activities we had organised for them and enjoyed fish and chips and fresh fruit and bickies for supper. Enjoy some of these pictures from camp.
