Insects invade Room 3

There's an insect invasion happening in Room 3!  We are learning about insects and our class have been collecting creepy crawlies found alive (or dead).

We make sure we look after our live insects by feeding them and taking them home in the weekend so they're looked after.

"Insects have an exoskeleton which is a hard protective covering over it's body" - Jewel

"All insects have 6 legs and 3 body parts" - Maia

"The 3 main body parts are the head, thorax and abdomen" - Isabella L

"Most insects go through 4 stages of metamorphosis, - egg, larva, pupa, adult" - Brooke M

"Ticks aren't insects" - Shelby

"The wings and legs are attached to the thorax" - Brooke K

Here are some photos!

Shot Put

We are doing Athletics for PE until the end of term.  Today we practised shot put.
We are learning to PUSH the ball with a straight arm, not THROW like a tennis ball.

Here are some photos ...

Remember to bring shorts and a T-shirt to school every day. We are practising sprints, long jump, high jump, discus, and shot put.

Buddy Class

Room 3's buddy class is Room 8. Some of our children have been visiting our 'little buddies' to help them with their learning activities. Sometimes the children pop into our class to have a 'big buddy' listen to them read.

Last Friday, our buddy class taught us a couple of dances.

We are looking forward to doing more fun activities with our buddy class this year!

Senior Swimming Sports

Yesterday we had the Senior Swimming Sports at the Makino Pool. We were very lucky with the weather. It was warm and sunny and the water was just right.

It was very exciting for us Year 4's because it was our FIRST swimming sports event in the BIG pool!
Here are some photos of our afternoon ...

Spelling Buddies

Every Friday morning, we 'buddy up' with our Learning Buddy. We test each other on the list of words we've been practising at home and school.

We feel so PROUD when we get these words right.
