Playing in the Leaves!

We went out to collect some sticks for our pig houses. While we were on the field we piled up all the autumn leaves and had some fun!

Straw Houses

Over the last two weeks we have been designing and testing our Straw Pig Houses with Miss Watson.
We tested the strength of straw, then we looked at how we could make it into bundles like the Little Pig did and then in groups we built a straw house.
We tested our house for 'Wolf Proofness' by huffing and puffing (with a little help from Miss Dalton's Hairdryer)

Here is a photostory of us at work.

Our Pig Traps

We were looking at how the Big Bad Wolf could have caught the Three Little Pigs and we came up with some ideas. We drew pictures of our ideas and explained them using the ipad.

Here are our movies showing our ideas.

Learning is... Slogan Competition

This week all classes at Parkvale took part in a Learning is.. Slogan competition.
This involved classes having discussion around what the children thought learning meant and what you needed to do to be a good learner.  We then as a class came up with a slogan to represent our learning and presented it visually on our class windows or doors.
On Friday at assembly Ms Andersen then displayed our slogans and we presented it as a chant.
Room 3 were very proud to be joint winners for Nga Tipu. (Our Year 1 and 2 classes)
Below is our Slogan, Our winning certificated and Room 3 performing our chant.


Over the last two weeks we cleaned out the giant wild flowers from our garden, dug it over and planted some new vegies.  We planted some lettuce, brocoli, snowpeas and some herbs.
We can't wait for the plants to get nice and big so we can have a feast!

We Can Write

We practiced writing our names in lots of different ways.
Come see the photos below.
