Lily is an expert at skipping.  She can skip backwards and cross her arms over and skip.  Charley saw Lily skipping and decided to have a go.  Charley was struggling a little bit but Lily was patient and showed Charley how to skip on the spot with the rope.  Keep persevering Charley you can do it!!!!  Well done Lily for sharing your skipping skills with Charley.  It is wonderful when we can learn from each other.

Achieving my Writing Goal

Lily has been working really hard on her writing during Literacy sessions.  She has achieved her goal of writing all the sounds she can hear in order.

Lily has chosen a new goal and wants to focus on starting her sentences with a capital letter.
Keep being a great author, Lily!

Pizza Sharing

In Maths, we have been learning what the word 'equal' means and how to share equally. Our teacher gave us a pizza that had been cut into halves or quarters. We had to pretend to be a pizza chef and make pizza toppings with play dough. We then had to share the toppings equally on to each piece of the pizza.

Riding Our Bikes

Reading and writing about things you enjoy makes literacy fun.  We have been reading lots of books about bikes and racing.   We wrote a letter home asking if we could bring our bike or scooter to school.  We had lots of fun and we shared our bikes and scooters with the children who couldn't bring their bikes that day. 

We were all a bit tired after all that racing around!

Alba helped Lawrie ride her bike.  "Look ahead Lawrie I'll push 
Charley supporting Lily on Kairangi's scooter.

Kairangi demonstrated to the other children how to use the brake on the scooter to help you to stop.

Writing a letter home

Tomorrow we are going to ride our bikes at school.  We are learning and reading about lots of different bikes and what they can do.   We wrote a note home asking if we could bring our bikes to school.  Fingers crossed I am allowed too.  Whoops I forgot to write I need to bring my bike helmet too!
