Fun Day 2016

This is our last posting for the year. I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to read our class blog and to the faithful few who regularly post a comment - YOU ROCK!

Today we had our "Celebration Assembly" which was a special event and a lovely way to close the year.

Fun Day was an exciting day filled with different events which made

for a memorable day. It was wonderful to see many of you visit during the day.

I have had a wonderful year with your children and would like to wish you all a safe and happy holiday and Merry Christmas!!

Fractions - Wholey Cow

Mrs Dijkstra read us a maths book entitled " Wholey Cow" We took some ideas from the book. We coloured ice creams and wrote a question eg: What fraction of ice-cream number one is coloured Chocolate chip? What fraction of the butterflies are coloured pink?


As part of our Inquiry about Celebrations we have researched the above questions and compared what features are the same, what features are different between Diwali and Chinese New Year. We also made Rangoli patterns which made our room very colourful.

Birthday cakes

As part of our Inquiry we designed and made a birthday cake using coloured paper. Some of them look good enough to eat.

Pass the Parcel

Our present inquiry topic is "Celebrations" We are currently focussing on Birthdays and today with our buddy class we made Pass the Parcel, a favourite party game. When we returned to the class we played the game. It was fun!

Mrs Dijkstra was inspired by Room 13's shape pictures. So Room 24 used shapes to create a symmetrical design on our butterflies. We think they look beautiful!
