Crane visit to Middle Flat

Look what Whaea Chris saw early one morning when she walked down to Room 16.  

A very tall crane was lifting timber up onto the roof for the builders to use. 

 I wonder how tall the crane was?  It was much taller than the new classrooms!

Whaea Chris wondered if we could make a tall crane using ice block sticks?

Term 3 Art Antics

What a busy and very exciting Term 3 

The students of Room 3 were very industrious over the weeks leading up to the school art exhibition. 

As a class we explored different art forms and we tried our best by giving some new art techniques a go like hammering bottle tops and nails for our larger than life Maui Copper butterfly.

 After two terms of Room 3's art inquiry we were very excited to display our artistic work  around the school during HES Art Exhibition. 

We hoped you liked how wonderful it looked in the outdoor space.  


 Coastal Copper Butterfly

After painting our butterfly we found and recycled other people's recycling to make our butterfly.

 How do I draw a Robot?  What shapes can I use?

Learning to weave a flax flower

 We welcomed everyone with a dance display.

Yay! Spring is finally here.  We celebrated the arrival of Spring by drawing some beautiful daffodils and writing about what Spring means to us.

Monarch butterflies like to play in the sky all day. 
 Daffodils are yellow, pink and orange.  Daffodils are fragile. 
 " Quack quack" said baby duck.  "We are going to look for food"

I like daffodils swaying in the wind on Daffodil day.
I like this butterfly.  It is beautiful.  They live on native plants.  
"There are too many chicks in my house" said Mother Duck.  It is crazy to have too many chicks.

Cross Country

We ran fast!
We cheered and clapped for Room 3
We had a very exciting time.

I am running the Cross Country.  Last year I came last.  This year I don't know where I came.  I like running the Cross Country.  I saw my Mummy.       Sophie

I was last.  Then I was first.  I was proud of myself today.  Mummy was proud.  My brother Jazz was proud, even my brother Jacob was really proud too.

My family was cheering for me - that made me run faster.  My mum said "I loved it." 
 "That was amazing."      PJ
