This week Room 11 has been learning
about ANZAC Day.

After reading the story ANZAC Ted
we introduced our own bears to Room 11
and wrote stories about them.

We enjoyed playing inside games
with our bears and......

had a Teddy Bear's picnic inside
while the rain poured down outside.

We all agree our bears are very special
and ANZAC Ted was a marvellous
mascot for our brave New Zealand soldiers.

Awesome Insect Facts

Storytelling: We started writing our stories yesterday:How Butterflies Came to Be based on the Native American People's Tale

With our maps as a
reference we began writing.

Everyone was keen to get their
introduction written.

We worked hard to hook our
audience in.

We challenged ourselves to use
adjectives and wow words.

Constable Debbie visits Room 11

Constable Debbie visited Room 11 today as part of  our Kia Kaha study.
She talked to us about bullying and the power bullies think they have over others. She talked to us about how to recognise bullying behaviour and what to do about it.
Thank You Constable Debbie.

Bugs & Books Visit with Robinne Weiss

On Thursday Robine Weiss
visited Room 11 and introduced
our Bugs/Insects Topic

Features of an insect.

We pretended to be a
pray mantis waiting to leap on his or her food.

Then we got to hold one.

We looked through the microscope
to get a close
up view of a nit!

Then we felt a beetle walk
on our hands.

Robinne also is a great children's author.
Look out for her. You can buy her books on line.
