"An Owl?"

On looking over our bay wall Room 16 saw a beautiful owl being decorated. Room 15 have finished the first part of painting it so we look forward to seeing the owl when they have finished decorating it.   It looks a very majestic bird.

Making Music and Exploring Sounds

 Room 16 have enjoyed using their imagination and a recycled container to create a musical instrument.  They discovered you could shake, stroke, hit, tap or blow on their instrument to keep the beat and often there was more than one way to play an instrument.

Seini can "Finish It Off Properly."

Seini has been completing all her work so she got the Duffy Award this week and a book called "Grumpy Grandpa" .  We enjoyed sharing her new book and were pleased that Grumpy Grandpa was not so grumpy after all.

Listening to Music

We listened to "The Snow is Dancing" by Debussy for our writing motivation.  The children were not told the title but had to use their imagination to say what they thought the music was about.  Here are some of their imaginative stories.

"The sun was dancing on the water.  The music was fast."  By Jeremiah

"I liked the music.  It sounded like the stars dancing."  By Talanoa

"The music was like the moon was dancing in the dark."  By Bentley

"I like the rain dancing on the roof and the music sounded like this.  By Flynn

"Today we are writing about some music.  The music has a piano.  It is like rain coming down."  By Ahasi
Flynn and his friends listening to the music.

The star is dancing with the music.  By Talanoa

Practising for Athletics Day

Team One have been practising for the school Athletics Day on November 10.  The children learnt how to line up in a lane and wait for the command "On your marks, get set, go!"  They had fun seeing who could run the fastest.
