Duffy Certificate Winners

Heilala has set herself a goal of getting up on to blue level in reading and she has been finishing off all her Explain Everything reading activities to make sure she practises what she has learnt.  She was this weeks Room 16 winner of the Duffy certificate and chose the book about Little Why.  We all enjoyed sharing this book and joined in the reading aloud of it.  Keep up the good work Heilala.

Bentley collected his certificate from August when he was away.  He has been finding new words to use in his amazing story writing.  He also shared his book about the Little Yellow Digger and the children liked trying to guess what the next rhyming words would be at the end of each line.

In Makerspace the children have been doing gardening with Mr Vogt.  The children have enjoyed it so much that we have planted some seeds in our class so we can watch their growth.

Guardians Of The Galaxy

Our Inquiry topic has inspired the children to think about space travel and what rockets that travel between planets might look like.  Abbey, Talanoa and Jaycob have used Hyper Studio to draw their ideas.

Talanoa's Story

We read the story about Oscar and his best friend Quincy the dog.   They moved to a new neighbourhood and Oscar found it hard to make new friends at school and Quincy found that no one wanted a new dog friend until Quincy has a great idea on how to solve their problem.

Talanoa wrote his story about the two best friends.
