The chickens have arrived!

 Finally the wait is over. Our chickens have arrived.
Here is the chicken run - it is very cosy inside with straw and a perch for the chickens to sit up on.

Room 3's chicken is brown with a red comb. It likes to run around with it's friends.
We have to think of a name for it so watch this space. There are 5 chickens and they have already started laying eggs - we have 6 eggs so far!

Welcome to Term 4

Hi everyone! We have had a lovely holiday and are now back at work.

We started the term off by reading Jack and the Beanstalk for shared reading and we planted some peas (because Mrs O'Donnell loves peas and not beans!) They are already starting to grow. We have put them in a warm sunny place on the window sill.
Here you can see some of the shoots and roots growing.

We also read about Maui and the Sun. The sun was going too fast across the sky and so Maui and his brothers had to find a way to slow it down. We used black vivid and dye to create a detailed picture of the sun. We tried to use some koru shapes in our picture. Then we dabbed blue and white paint onto our background to look like the sky. These pictures will make our classroom sunny and cheerful.
