We have been looking at snails so we can find out ways to keep them away from our vegetable garden. Imagine our amazement when we found out about the Giant African Land Snail!
Here's what we wrote about it.

Amazing Starfish

The Tigers reading group read a great book about starfish. We decided to make a padlet to show what we'd learned from the book.

Wow! Term 3 has gone really fast. We started in Room 7 with 10 children and now have 15. We've had a great time and have been very busy. Here's a video of some of the activities we've enjoyed this term.

World Literacy Day

Last Tuesday it was World Literacy Day. We had a great time dressing up as book characters and having a parade. The real highlight was having parents come and read us stories from their cultures. We heard stories in Korean, Mandarin, Tongan, Nuiean, Hindi and English. Thank you to the parents who did a great job reading (and in some cases acting out!) their stories. Thanks also goes to the fabulous teachers Mrs Irshad, Miss Morrison and Mr J for organising such a great day.

What Am I?

We've been learning about sea creatures in Room 7. We thought we'd test your knowledge. Have a look and see how many animals you can work out from our clues.
