Check out our video of what we having been doing in the pool!
Last weekend we had the Te Puna School Country Fair!
Here is what some of the children thought of it!
Yay! It's the Country Fair today. I went on the rifle range. I shot one. My dad shot four and I got a lolly. It was yum. Then I went on the jeep ride. I drove and it was crazy because Aaria said faster and faster. Then I got candyfloss. It was yum. I got a face paint. It was a butterfly. It was pretty. It was a good Country Fair. Milan
Yay at the Country Fair I went on to the Hot Rods two times. I crashed into Aaria and Milan. I went on the green and black one. I crashed into one of the tyres on the grass. Then the man helped me out and I had a drink. After the Hot Rods I went on the Tractor two times. At lunch I had a sausage and the sausage was yummy. After my sausage I had a sore tummy. Kymani
It is the Country Fair today! Mmmm! I had candy floss. It was pink and fluffy. My Uncle does the bouncy castle! I went on it. I jumped up! It was fun. Robert
Wow! Term 3 was filled with lots of busy and exciting learning!
Find out what we got up to!
The term ended with a ROARRRRRR! as Room 4 performed the dance "Lion sleeps tonight" in the school production -"A Weekend in the Library". The children stepped up and danced the best they have ever danced. Well done Room 4, I am very proud of you.
Van Gogh Art
The famous artist we studied in Term 3 was Vincent Van Gogh.
We looked at his art works and used his very famous "Sunflower" art as inspiration for creating our collage sunflowers.
We explored how to add texture into our work by scratching, dabbing, flicking and sponging the paint.
Art Gallery Visit
Earlier in the term, we got on the bus and travelled to the Art Gallery to learn about Elizabeth Thomson.
Room 4 children have been doing portrait photography with Ms Shilling. Watch the slideshow below to see the portraits the children took. Which do you like?
Where's the water?
Our topic this term was called: Where's the water?
We have been learning about water as a liquid, solid (ice) and gas (water vapour). We have also learnt about evaporation and condensation. Check out the song below as all of these concepts come together in the Water Cycle.
