Adventure Learning Centre is open!

We were so excited that we could climb and play on the new Adventure Learning Centre. We had such a great time and were so excited when we could do something that was a bit challenging!

We even discovered you could hide in the tyre caves. Imagine our games of hide and seek now!

N is for North Pole

Our letter of the week is N and we thought about what our Action Stations focus would be for this week! We thought about a Christmas theme and knew that the North Pole would inspire us all.

Here's our North Pole villages that were made at the playdough station. We were so proud of them that we started singing Happy Birthday!

Pet's Day Animations

This week during Choice and Challenge we looked at how would we show how our pets were feeling during Pet's Day and then show that everything was fine in the end.

Do you notice how much more the children are exploring what each code block does?

Action Stations

Our A+ Adventurers in Room 7 and the Library are learning so much through Action Stations. 

We are keeping a slide to capture what we have been up to and what we had to think hard about.

Wacky Handwriting in Action

We love wacky handwriting. We get to go outside and paint our letters with water, draw them with chalk and squirt them with our water bottles! This is the best day ever!

Fun with our Buddies

We love our buddies. We did a scavenger hunt around the school. We found out lots of new things. We met the Principal, Mrs Brice (the secretary) and Mrs Winter (the librarian). We went to visit all the classrooms. We know where the sick bay and the toilets are. We know where to go to the office and to put the sports gear away. After we did our scavenger hunt we had lunch with our buddies in the Secret Garden - it was awesome.
