Week 8

Hooray! Everybody from Room 1 came to school this week. The sun was shining too so it was a great opportunity for a class photo. The only tricky part was getting all 22 of us looking at the camera and smiling. Here we are:

Week 7

Mrs Kerr-Bell teaches in our class one day every fortnight. She is teaching us all about Picasso and his fantastic line drawings.

First, Mrs Kerr-Bell showed us some of Picasso's work

Then we learned how to draw a profile outline.
After that we filled in our profiles with patterns and lines. They looked amazing!

Week 6

This is our first attempt at making a video. Although the result isn't exactly what we hoped for you can see that we are helping each other learn how to use our new IPADs.
Some things we have learned: 

  • hold the IPAD the right way up otherwise your video is upside down 
  • stand close to the people you are filming if you need to hear what they are saying, and 
  • if the numbers count the video is going!

Week 5

We worked hard on our writing samples. Most of us are learning to add detail so the reader can make a picture in their mind. We try  to use interesting words and Mrs Bingham loves reading our stories.

We go swimming every Monday and Wednesday and have lots of fun in the water. 

Twinkles was wondering "How do you make a slushy maker?" Mrs Bingham brought two slushy makers to school so we made yummy slushies and took the slushy makers apart to see how they were made.
