Reader's from Royal Oak Intermediate

Today we had some wonderful visitors from Royal Oak Intermediate. The students work as part of an English as a second language group and in this group, have worked to create their own story books. They kindly brought these beautiful books into share with the children in the Junior School. The books were wonderful and our children really enjoyed listening to them! Thank you :)

Worms Worms Worms!

Mrs McConnell has been teaching the Junior classes all about worms and our school worm farm. Today Mrs McConnell visited the children in Room 3: We got to check out the worms up close! We put on gloves and handled the worms and used magnifying glasses to get a really good look! Then we learnt all about the life cycle of worms. We loved it! Thank you Mrs McConnell!

Cornwall Park

See if you can go to Cornwall Park and see the newly born lambs. They are making lots of noise 'baa baa' to tell their Mum's where they are.

As well as lambs, there are calves too.

If you walk through Twin Oak Drive all the daffodils are in flower too.

I really enjoyed visiting the park today!

Verb Poems

This week in Year 2 we chose something we did in the holidays and wrote a 'Verb Poem' about it. It was quite tricky to keep to the pattern but here are some examples. Pop into the classes if you would like to see some more!

My Best Holiday My Holiday
Swimming, swimming. Scootering, scootering.
Diving in the pool. Scootering down the steep dry footpath.
Splashing at the people. Zooming to Waihi Beach.
Holding my breath. Scootering down the secret pathway.
Super swimming! Family fun!
By Priya- Room 10 By Charlotte- Room 9

My Holiday My Holiday
Eating, eating. Sleeping, sleeping.
Munching salty chips. Sleeping on the bouncy bed.
Chewing healthy weetbix. Lazing on the comfy bed.
Swallowing soft eggs. Dancing to groovy music.
Hungry holidays. Serena's stupendous sleepover.
By Troy- Room 8 By Holly- Room 8

My Holiday My Holiday
Sailing, sailing. Going, going.
Eating wonderful ice-blocks. Driving to Emily's house.
Sailing gentle seas. Playing on the shiny computer.
Skimming beautiful shells. Running around in the green garden.
Relaxing break. Fun days.
By Jack- Room 11 By Stephanie- Room 18
