'H' is for Humpty Dumpty

On Tuesday we learned the Humpty Dumpty rhyme, because it is 'Hh' week.
We coloured in Humpty Dumpty and now they are hanging in our classroom for us to look at and read.
We are getting clever at staying in the lines when we are colouring in.
We also found this Humpty Dumpty story on YouTube.

Room 8's Rockets

We made rockets that we can blow up in the sky.

They can go high, but not as high as the rockets that go into space.
Ms Tataurangi is proud of all the children in our class who can count backwards from 10 now!
Way to go Superstars!

Room 8's Gingerbread Boys and Girls

Today we made gingerbread boys and girls.
We used raisins for eyes, half of a nutrigrain for the mouth and cocopops for the buttons.
We got to gobble up our gingerbread people after they were baked in the oven.
Our gingerbread boys and girls didn't try to run away!
They were yummy.

Snow's Visit To Room 8

Snow is Ms Tataurangi's pet guinea pig.
Today he came for a visit and we all got to hold him.
He likes to eat caulifower, carrots and grass.
We let him sit on the towel in the middle of our circle and watched him eat.
Kyle loved him and asked his Mum to get him one after school.

The Gingerbread Man

This week we are looking at things that start with the letter 'Gg'.
Girls, giraffes, giggling geckoes and gingerbread man are some of the words we now know.
Here's a story of The Gingerbread Man that we listen to in class.
We are making gingerbread men and will put the photos up soon.
Keep a look out for them...

Aren't dolphins clever? Just like us!
