Tui camp day 3

Another fun action packed day. Top team to start us off- 8 fun activities, a walk to the beach to slide down some epic sand dunes and then a slushy sand/mud fight!! We ended the night with some hilarious skits.

Designing mazes for the bugs from Nasa

Skellywags maze
Bubble Nugets maze
The fun table’s maze

Yesterday Room 4 was lucky to have Mrs Roskam in as their teacher. She brought in these little mechanic bugs that react to things they touch. We had to create a maze for our bugs from Nasa to go through. It took a lot of team work, debating and problem solving.

Oobleck!!

A few weeks ago we read the story Bartholomew and the Oobleck. We talked about the rich language the book used. To help us with our descriptive writing we decided to make Oobleck ourselves.

Making the Oobleck was very messy but lots of fun. We talked all about what it felt like. We discovered that when you punch or squeeze the Oobleck it goes really hard BUT if we removed the pressure the Oobleck becomes watery and runny!!!!

Squash with Kay

Kay visited our school last Wednesday to teach us some basic Squash skills. We learnt how to hold a racket correctly, we practiced balancing our ball, bouncing it on our racket and how to side step. We had lots of fun and we look forward to seeing her again this Wednesday 🙂

Library

Every Friday we head to the library to exchange our books, complete learning activities and share a love of reading. Last week’s star reader was Paityn, she read us a Pig the Pug book.
