Term 4 Week 2

This week was all about small creatures. We were talking about how our writing could persuade people to reduce, reuse and recycle their rubbish when a mouse ran across the classroom and into the cupboard! We decided that would be much more fun to write about! Here are two of our stories:

“A mouse! A mouse!” we screamed. A mouse jumped out. We all screamed and Ana laughed. The mouse ran away. Troy H, Tamati and Honey looked in the cupboard. It was gone.

“Eeeeek Eee!” went the mouse. I screamed as loud as I could. The mouse was in our classroom. Just today it happened. Mrs Bingham jumped up and up and up. “Haha, haha, haha” said Mrs Bingham. Room 1 laughed “Haha, haha, haha, haha.”

We also had worms in our classroom this week! Mrs Bingham brought them from her worm farm at home. 

Tarelle wrote his story about how worms help our garden:

The Worms
Worms are good for your garden. They make your garden happy, then your garden grows faster. They make food into mud and then they make the mud turn into liquid. Then you get the liquid and you tip it into your garden.

Term 4 Week 1

Kaikohe West School looks amazing with all the new gardens being planted. On Monday we went for a walk to have a look at what the other classes are doing.

Wow! We want a garden like this one!
The school greenhouse is full of seeds and seedlings.

Mrs Wihongi showed us the Monarch Butterfly egg on Room 16's Swan Plant.

We filled our new planter box with soil.

And planted our first lettuce!

Before the end of the year we will be feasting on lettuce, parsley and  pak choi. YUM!

Term 3 Week 10

This week was all about eating and drinking! Whaea Gina from Project Energise showed us how much sugar is in some of the drinks we like.
Water is the healthiest drink.
We shared hot chips with our buddies in Room 4 and watched Despicable Me to celebrate the end of term. And Oliver's mum brought a birthday cake to school.
