Our First Few Weeks of School

We've had a great time during our first weeks at school. We've read "The Hole in the King's Sock" by Dot Meharry and "Is That An Earthquake" by Jennifer Cooper.

We have learnt a new place value game called "Traffic Light". It's fun and it helps us to learn about 3 digit numbers. Today we learnt a new place value game "Close to 100" but we find that one a bit tricky at the moment.

We have been learning about the Treaty of Waitangi and Mrs McGhie read us a really cool book about the Treaty House - the house in the book could talk!!! But, we know that it doesn't in real life.

We've written a recount about what we did in the holidays. We had to use the 5 W and 1 H questions to organise our thinking.

We are going to be learning all about New Zealand this term. Please keep visiting our blog to hear all about our exciting learning.
