Sewing Fun

Today we began our second sewing project.

We cut a circle out of fabric and stitched a button to it.

On Friday we are going to stitch our creation onto a big piece of fabric and make it into a garden.

It will be fantastic.

Riley took these photos for us.

Calendar Art

Today we had a trial run of our Calendar Art.

We drew pictures on the concrete and then we joined the picture and had our photo taken.  Some of us got it right first time, tomorrow we will share and consider how we could improve what we did so our art work looks even better!

Fabric and fibre fun

Today we had our first turn at sewing. We had so much fun and showed our school values as we persevered, we had fun and we were very creative :)

The Enchanted Classroom

Today when the children arrived at school they were excited to discover our Enchanted Forest in the classroom.

I loved watching them read in this special part of our classroom.

100 Days of School

Today we finally celebrated our 100th day of school. It was so much fun! We came dressed up in a number related way- we looked amazing. We had a special celebration banner to enter our classroom too. We had our photo taken lots of times! We made 100 day crowns and we had a booklet of 100 day activities. We had to estimate how far 100 steps would take us - and then test it out. We built towers with 100 cups. We played dice games and kept a tally of 100 totals. We did a 100 hunt. We had to guess how many jelly beans and cookies in the jar. Thanks for such a cool day my wee pickles.

100 Years Old

Today we imagined what we might look like when we are 100 years old! Have a look at us here. Later we wrote stories about what life might be like when we are 100 years old! When I am 100 Years Old ….. My face will be as wrinkly as an elephants bottom. My hair will be as white as the sky. I will be an old inventor. I will have a walking stick. I will have a healthy diet. By Riley B When I am 100 Years Old ….. I am sweet and kind. I will die when I am 100 years old. I hope my family will celebrate my birthday. I will have grey hair like a stormy sky and a walking stick that looks just like a normal stick. When I will live I will be all by myself when I am 100 years old. By Charlotte When I am 100 Years Old ….. I might have some wrinkles. I will be very sweet. I will have hardly any hair because I will be 100 years old. By Ashley When I am 100 Years Old ….. I will have hair as dark as the night sky. I will also have glasses. I will have a walking stick too. I will also have hearing aides. I will be a very, extremely old granny. I will have my granddaughters and grandsons come to my house. By Ava When I am 100 Years Old ….. When it’s 100 days of school party on Thursday I think it’s going to be fantastic. I want it to be fantastic. We need to dress up like a 100 year old person. I want to be sweet and kind but I am grumpy. I would like a walking stick. I love to be sweet or kind but I am still grumpy. Elenoa When I am 100 Years Old ….. I would be mad as a lion. By Finn When I am 100 Years Old ….. If I was 100 years old I wouldn’t hear very well. I would have a walking stick. I would be grumpy. I would wear glasses. I would be so old that I would die. By Tiaan When I am 100 Years Old ….. If I was 100 years old I have a walking stick and wrinkles. I would be grumpy. My whole face would have baking soda on it! By Hayden   When I am 100 Years Old ….. I am the sweet one and the kind one. I am a funny, big granny. I am 100 years old. I am going to die. My hair is grey. My face is funny, little, old and it has some of the little kind of spots. I walk with a walking stick. If I go past the road I am going to sit on the moon chair. If I wasn’t just old I will not with a walking stick. I am not going to sit on a moving chair past the road but I was still an old woman but I didn’t want to be one. I was looking so weird when I am an old woman because I wanted to be one now. If I was still old I will be like that for ages and ages. By Fatai When I am 100 Years Old ….. When I’m 100 I will like to do sitting on the chair watching TV too. By Bryn. When I am 100 Years Old ….. I will be sweet. I will be kind. I will wear glasses. I will live in a tower. I have a friend and I also have biscuits. I watch TV and I have lots of friends and I have a walking stick. I smile a lot. By Emma When I am 100 Years Old ….. When I am 100 years old I will have a walking stick and die! By Harper When I am 100 Years Old ….. I got a walking stick. I have glasses. I am almost deaf. Oh, how funny I am! I have a wheel chair. I am almost as blind as a bat and I am very kind. I am dying. By Grace When I am 100 Years Old ….. If I was 100 years old I would be as old as sea turtle. If I was 100 years old I would have a zimmer frame and glasses and false teeth. By Cillian When I am 100 Years Old ….. If I was 100 years old I would be really kind to others. If I was 100 I would have grey hair, false teeth (Maybe), Maybe grandchildren and maybe great grandchildren. If I was 100 I maybe would have a walking stick. By Israa When I am 100 Years Old ….. I am going to look like this when I am 100. Crinkly. I will have a walking stick and some glasses. I will be dead and it will be sad but will be kind. By Nethasa When I am 100 Years Old ….. I am a funny looking Granny. I have a walking stick. I have grey hair too. Oh, what a funny Granny I am! I’m riding in my wheel chair down the road! Ooooh, what a funny Granny I am. Now, I’m sweet, kind and funny. I’m 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, a billion I love eating banana toast. I go to Granny School. My house is a farm and in my farm I’ve got some hens, cows and goats. Her name was Granny, Granny. By Lily   When I am 100 Years Old ….. I am going to be deaf as can be. My hair is grey as possible. I am sitting in a chair all day. But one day I will die to death and no one will see me. I can play tricks on people and no one will see anywhere at all. Now my spirit is dead too. Now it is time to say goodbye to everybody. My whole body is dead but it is not true. I am still a spirit because spirits last forever. You can’t hurt spirits and I am going to go to Spirit School when I’m a spirit. I will be zooming like a rocket around people in the world. It is not so fun to be a spirit. I might be 900 when I’m a spirit. It will be better if I was 99. At least I’m not dead for now. For now I’m still six. I just want to be how I am. Now I am glad I am six. By Bina   When I am 100 Years Old ….. I will not be dead but I will have a walking stick. My hair will be white I am going to be kind. By Riley S

A Different way to tell a Story

100 Days of School

On Thursday we will have completed 100 Days of School this year. We have counted the days all year and we are very excited that it is nearly day 100. We are having a 100 Days of School Party to celebrate. We are dressing up as if we are 100 years old or as a number in some way. We are also bringing along something yummy (and maybe even mathematical) to share with our friends for lunch. We are very excited. We will also watch this clip.

Maths Challege

We had a maths challenge today.
We are learning to skip count and to count backwards from bigger numbers.
When we can do this on our own we can write our name on these pieces of paper and we get a sticker too.

Team Work

We continued our Team Work focus today.

I was proud of the children because they were each able to fulfil their own role within their group.

During maths time the children worked in groups to find different ways to make 93 - because today is day 93 of our 100 days of school.

Later, we designed our own book character.  We drew our character and wrote words to describe them.  We joined up with a buddy and had to plan an adventure for our two characters - then we worked together to write a great story.
