Welcome back to school everybody!
We're off to a busy start after a lovely long summer holiday. Ms Jones was very happy to see everyone again.
|Most of the children in Room 13 this year were in Room 13 last year. |
Last year we were a Year One class. We were in Kowhai Team. Now we are Year Two and we are in Totara team. Being in Totara Team means we are allowed to play down on Putikitiki at lunch time.
|Here we are checking it out.|
We are very excited to have two Masters students from the university working with us this year. They will spend four days every other week in our class, helping us to learn and learning to be teachers at the same time. They are called Ms Scot and Mrs Mackie.
|Here is Ms Scot|
|Here is Mrs Mackie|
|Mrs Mackie is reading a story|
|We wrote letters to Ms Bobsien to ask if the Totara team sandpit could get more sand and a shade cloth cover to keep the sun off on hot days.|
|Ms Scot is playing Fish with some children|
|We are learning to use our Listening Post|
|Amazing! The same day we wrote to Ms Bobsien asking for more sand for the Totara sandpit a whole load arrived!|
As you can see, we have a great view of the sandpit from our deck.
|There are some changes in Room 13 this year. Two bean bags, for example.|
|Wow! The pumpkins have taken over the kitchen gardens|
