Changing Fruit into Juice

We loved tasting the carrot, apple and mandarin juice. It tasted delicious.

Autumn Trees

We drew these beautiful autumn trees using Kidpix.
Our pictures needed to have a background colour, a trunk, branches and leaves.

We love drawing with Kidpix. We like drawing trees too.
We think our trees look beautiful. We hope you like them too.

Kids with a View

On Friday Anna was lucky enough to go and visit Room 3 at Point View School in Auckland. 
They are one of our Quad Blogging Buddies. 
(Click on the photo to take a look at their blog)

It was great to finally meet Mrs Laburn and Room 3. They showed Anna and Mrs Nagels the great learning they could do with the iPads in their classroom.
Take a look at the photos of some of their learning.


Room 3 was great at sharing. They were also great at helping each other. They could even teach their friends how to try new things. Anna was really impressed how Room 3 worked together.

Thank you for such a super afternoon Mrs Laburn and Room 3. 
You are fabulous learners.

Autumn Leaves

We like it when the leaves change colour and fall to the ground. Look at all the leaves outside Room 4. We have loved playing in them. We have walked in them and jumped in them too.

The leaves are falling down from the tree.

I love my Mum

On Sunday it will be Mother's Day in New Zealand. Earlier in the week we wrote about some of the great things our Mums do for us and why we love them.
Anna published our writing onto a whiteboard and then took a photo of us.
We have made a frame for a copy of our photos to go in so we can give it to our Mums.
Have a look at our photopeach -

What do you love about your Mum?

Imagine 100

A game we like to play in Room 4 is called Imagine 100. We try to use our imagination and think about something. Then we think about what 100 of those things would be like.  
After playing this game for a little while we wrote some of our favourite 100 ideas. We were quite excited because we learnt to write 100. 
Here is a look at some of our writing. 
(If you click on the photo you will be able to see our writing)



Room 4 knows Anna is afraid of mice so sometimes they think it is very funny to imagine 100 mice and laugh about what Anna would do! 
What can you imagine 100 of?

Lizzie brought some delicious feijoas to share with Room 4.
Look how many there were.
We held the feijoa so we could think about how it felt, looked and smelt.
Then Anna cut the feijoa in half for us so we could eat it.
We did some great brainstorming about our delicious feijoas.
