Discovery with Richmond Kindy

We had so much fun when Richmond Kindy came to visit. We started off with some singing and then Richmond Kindy shared Jiggle Jam with us. After this we broke off and went to the discovery activities. The year 6 buddies were awesome and helped the children from Room 3, Room 4 and Richmond Kindy with the activities. After Discovery we had some morning tea together and then Richmond Kindy left. We loved being able to share a little bit of what makes Hope School special.

Matilda brought her wee chick Hatchimal to school. She was very cute and like to cheep. She was fluffy but is starting to grow feathers. We were lucky and got to have a wee hold with her.

New Teaching Table

We have got a new teaching table in our class. We love that we can right on it to help our learning in reading, writing and maths.

Experimenting with Tools

This week as part of our sculpture unit we experimented with different tools we can use when working with play dough or clay.

K.O.S - Secrets and Tricks

In our last session with Constable Charlotte Donaldson we learned about secrets and tricks. We did some role plays where Charlotte tried to be sneaky and trick us or get us to keep a secret and we had to practice what we needed to do. We needed to say "no" and make sure we told an adult we trust quickly.
