We like this website very much.
We click on the letter of the start of our name and watch what happens.
We are learning about new animals that we have not seen before.
If we don't know what the animal is, Ms Tataurangi finds a Youtube clip to share with us.
So what letter does your name start with?

Our Favourite Dancing Otter

During "Oo" Week, we looked at opera and otters on YouTube.
Here's our favourite otter video.
We have a great understanding of what an otter is now!
We aren't too sure about opera yet.

Shoo! By Room 8

Today we made a video of our Shared Book - Shoo! by Joy Cowley.
We made animal masks and one of us dressed up as the farmer.
This is our first video - We are proud of our efforts.
Thank you to our wonderful Room 7 helper, who helped us to read the story.

Inchworms - Our favourite video

Every week we study a different letter.
During 'Ii' Week, we found this fun video about inchworms.
In our class we made a display showing 5 inchworms on an igloo.
Come and have a look in our class sometime. 

Duffy Assembly - Term 1

We had Linda Vagana come to our school as our Duffy Hero.
Here are some pictures of our Duffy Star, Linda and our class.
We were lucky to have a photo with her all on our own!

Jupiter Jelly

Last week we made Jupiter Jelly.
Here's the story we co-constructed on Friday (after we ate the yummy Jupiter Jelly)

We are eating Jupiter Jelly.
A grape is the red spot.
The red spot is a storm.
