Room 3 measures up!

We've been learning about measurement over the last two weeks. We know lots of words like long, short, thin, wide, tiny, huge, closest and furthest away. Yesterday we compared our footprints to giant's footprints and tiny little footprints.
Our feet were bigger than
the tiny little footprints but much, much smaller than the giant's

In the photos you can see a group of us comparing our feet with the feet we drew. Briah's foot is much, much smaller than the giant's footprint. Aden is comparing both big and little at the same time!!

What's in a Rainforest?

We have had a very busy first week back. We welcomed Mykee into Room 3 and have been finding our way around after Mrs Bennington made some changes in the holidays.
The strange creature on the wall turned out to be a toucan from a tropical rain forest. We've started learning about rain forests and read a cool book about the Cat in the Hat called If I Ran the Rainforest? We thought very hard about what we might see in a rain forest after reading the book and here are our ideas.

We will definitely see some of them as we continue our journey through the forest.

Have a lovely holiday!

Today is our last day for term 2. 

Devin is moving to Christchurch in the holidays to be closer to his grandparents. We will miss you Devin! 

Stefan had a birthday earlier this week and is now 6 years old. Mrs O'Donnell is having a big long break working from home on a school project and will be back in Term 4. 

We had a special morning tea to say "Goodbye" to Devin, "Happy birthday" to Stefan and "See you later" to Mrs O'Donnell. Devin, Josiah and Aden iced and decorated biscuits with Leanne. Mrs O'Donnell had made lots of popcorn. It was yummy!!!

We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday. Mrs Bennington will be teaching Room 3 next term and is already planning lots of exciting things to learn!

See you in two weeks!!!
