Dental Clinic

We have a special truck in our school carpark. There is a Dental Clinic inside! 
We went to visit the Dental Truck to see what was going on inside.
We all got a sticker from the Dental Therapists.
We had a turn at sitting in the chair. It is a very fancy chair because it can move up and down.
They a special light and they can see our teeth.
We liked the water pistol and the air pistol. The air pistol dries our teeth.
We will visit the truck again during class time.
It is important to brush your teeth in the morning and at night time.

Butterfly Day

Something exciting happened in Room 4 today. 
All of the butterflies hatched from their chysalis. 
We had 6 chrysalis and now we have 6 butterflies.

We could get really close to the butterflies. 
We watched them hatch and see how they move their legs and tongues. 
Their tongues are long and curly.

Look at the bucket with all the butterflies drying their wings.

We liked looking at their beautiful wings.

Kate's Bantam Visit

Kate has hens at her house. Her Mum brought one of the hens in to visit Room 4. It is called Marilyn.
We took photos of her. 
We fed her raisins.
We got to pat her. We could feel her feathers. She felt warm and soft.

Rosie the Cow

Today we watched a special show about Rosie the Cow.
We learnt a lot of things....
Cows eat grass. Cows make milk. The milk tanker comes to collect the milk from the farm.The milk gets dropped off at the factory. Cows burp and poo. 

Here are some of the things we liked best about the show -

I liked it when Matt touched the electric fence and got a shock.

I liked it when Matt got cow poo on his shoe.
By Carmelo

By Vahoi

It was funny that Matt was scared of cows.
