Garden Plans

After visiting the Hamilton Gardens we planned our own Kitchen Garden.
We thought about what we would want to grow in our gardens.

Hamilton Gardens

We had a great time at the Hamilton Gardens. We had so many parents, friends and grandparents as our helpers. It was awesome.

 We went to the Italian Garden. 
We saw the lion fountain and the Waikato river.

We looked at all the vegetables in the Kitchen Garden. 
 Robyn showed us how potatoes and kumara grow in the ground not on top of the ground.
 We saw chickens and a bee hive in the Sustainable Backyard.

Skyping another Room 4

We love Skype. 
We got to Skype a class called Room 4 at Te Kauwhata Primary School
They showed us the penguins they had made. They also showed us their fabulous penguin walking.
We sang them One Direction and they sang Jingle Bells to us. 
We learnt that they have a school uniform. We think yellow is a great school uniform colour because it would make people feel happy.
We asked them questions. We are learning to let other people speak and listen to them. We talked a lot.

Hamilton Gardens

We are really lucky to have such beautiful gardens in Hamilton. We are going to visit them as part of our Out and About learning.

We are going on Wednesday 12th December at 9:15am. The best bit is we will be travelling on the school bus. 
We would love some parents or grandparents to come with us too.
We have planned where we would like to go. We would like to see Turtle Lake, the Italian Garden, the Kitchen Garden and the Sustainable Backyard.

Gorgeous Photos

I have finally downloaded the great photos the children in Room 4 have been taking.
They are so beautiful. Room 4 you are becoming fabulous photographers.

This is one of my favourite photos. Cruz took this photo.
Take a look at the Photopeach of some of the beautiful photos taken by Room 4. 
They will make you smile.

Soft Toy Picnic

We had a great Soft Toy Picnic even though it was raining. 
All of Kowhai Team went down to the hall and ate their lunch together. Then we went to play on the playground on Putikitiki. 

Guess what? It started raining again...
Luckily our toys were watching us so they didn't get as wet as we did.

Soft Toy Picnic

Today we are having a soft toy picnic at school. We are going down to Putikitiki to eat our lunch and we are taking our soft toys too.
We had to bring a soft toy from home to school.

The toys are very excited about being in Room 4.
