The butterfly hatched today.!

We were excited this morning when we got to school because the chrysalis was black.
We could see the butterfly's wings.

At lunchtime the butterfly hatched out of the chrysalis.

At hometime the butterfly was opening and closing its wings to dry them so it can fly.
After school we took it outside to fly away.

The New Classrooms - ready for the roof.

Ari said,
The builders are working on the roof.

They were cutting the wood.
They were hammering the nails in the wood.
Louie said,
The builders are working on the roof.
They were hammering on bits of wood.
They put the wood on the beams.
They cut the wood so it would fit.
Nike said,
The builders are working on the roof.
They were high up on the scaffolding.
It looked scary !

We wore life jackets and we practiced water safety skills with the swimming instructors.
Mahir said,
"I saw Room 14 swimming.
They were falling in the pool holding their life jackets.
I was watching them.
It was amazing."
Nixon said,
"I was floating in the pool with my life jacket on."

Our Chrysalis.

We were so excited when we saw our caterpillar had turned into a chrysalis.
It changed while we were learning our maths.
When we came to school the caterpillar was hanging upside down like a 'J'.
Ayla said,
"Our caterpillar was hanging from the leaf.
I saw it taking its skin off.
It magically turned into a chrysalis."
Panna said,
"We saw a caterpillar make a chrysalis.
It made a letter 'J'.
Then it wriggled and it took its skin  off."

Co-operative Games with Jono and Ricky from Project Energise.

We had lots of fun over on Dawson working together as a team.
We had to pass a hoop around a circle without using our hands - 

We played 'Goodies and Baddies' with bean bags and hoops. 

We passed a ball around a circle using our feet - and no hands !

Welcome to all our new Lively Learners for 2018.

This year we are on middle in Room 14 - we are now part of the Kākōpō Hub which is made up of 3 classes of Year 2 children.
We are swimming every day, so bring togs and a towel in a plastic bag.
Last week we had lots of fun swimming with Rm 15 - 

We are learning about being an Enviro School and went to the Kitchen Garden to look at the gardens and check out the compost bins.

We are learning to have 'nude food' so we can reduce our rubbish.
