School of Fitness

Every Monday we go to the hall with Lorelle for the Les Mills School of Fitness.
We exercise, play games and dance.
It is fun to move our bodies to the music. We really like the animal game. We have learnt some new dance moves too.

Grandparents Day

We had a fantastic Grandparents Day!


Because it was raining we couldn't show them around our school like we wanted to. We had fun with our Grandparents anyway.
Take a look at our PhotoPeach of the fun we had with our lovely visitors.

We asked the Grandparents what they liked to do at school and Kate's Nana told us she liked to play hopscotch. After the Grandparents had gone home we all went to play hopscotch. We liked playing it.

Baking for Grandparents Day

Room 5 has had a busy day baking biscuits for Grandparents Day on Friday.

We melted the butter, sugar, milk, baking soda and golden syrup.

We mixed it with the sultanas, flour and vanilla essence.

We put spoonfuls of the mixture on a baking tray. 
We baked the biscuits in the oven for 12 minutes.

We counted how many biscuits we made. We had to count a lot of biscuits.
There were 94 biscuits!
We hope our Grandparents like their biscuits for morning tea on Friday.

Painting the Crossing

We watched the crossing straight outside our school being painted.

I like watching the men doing the road. I like watching the machine.

Making our Juice

Our Juice Day was great. 
Everyone remembered to bring some fruit so we could make juice. 
We loved making the juice so much we want to do it again soon.

Juice Day

Anna showed us a machine. 
We had to have a good think about what it could be. 
Take a look at the movie to see what we thought it was.

It is a juicer!
Tomorrow we will make juice at school. 
We are all going to bring one piece of fruit so we can all make juice together.

Grandparents Day


We are going to have a Grandparents Day soon. We are going to show our Grandparents our school. We want to know what school was like when they were at school.
We would love it if our Grandparents could bring a picture of them when they were little and a favourite recipe that we could make.

Come and spend a morning in my classroom for Grandparents Day on Friday 23 August 2013
in Room 5 
at Hamilton East School.
We will show you our classroom and our learning from 9 - 10:50am.

We would love to see you.

We made invitations today. We will take them home in our book bags and give the invitation to our Grandparents.
