The Mask Parade

Today we had our mask parade.  We made our masks out of paper pulp and we pushed it into shape then dried it off in the oven and finally painted it.
We had some Angry Birds, a lion, a giraffe, some butterflies, a bird, a T-Rex and a monster.

   


Which mask do you like the best?

Nature Week


To celebrate the letter Nn this week we are having a nature week.

We made some insect feeders to see what insects would come and visit.  We got some big beetles and some little midges!  But the biggest surprise was the lizards that decided to visit.

Have a look and leave us a comment.

Spot It!!!

The "Spot What" books that we have in our class are some of our favourites so we decided that we would have a go at making some puzzling pictures ourselves.
Here is Alex's "Spot It" picture.  He placed all the things carefully and then he took the photos himself.  He made sure to stand above his creation so he could look down on it with the camera.
Alex said, "Can you spot a car, 3 stars and a soldier?"


Leave us a comment to see what you could spot.

Ancient Greece

Yesterday we travelled back to 776BC with Mrs Carter to Ancient Greece to answer the question, what food did they eat way back then?

We found out that they ate fresh vegetables, greek yoghurt, olives, fresh fruit, feta cheese, pita bread and hummus.

We also found out they cooked on fires.  They lived by the sea so they ate fish and that the Groovy Greeks invented the chefs white hat!  Thanks Mrs Carter : D

Orana Park

video
On Thursday last week we went to Orana Park.  We learnt about lots of animals that are running out of time because humans are not looking after them or where they live properly.  We are going to do something about that!  We took a video of us feeding the giraffes with the i-pad.  Giraffes are amazing.  They have long, blue tongues.  This giraffe is 24 years old.  She is very old in giraffe years.  We had a fantastic time at Orana Park.
