Gingerbread Houses 2011

We did it! Each group finished their house. They were a spectacular collection. One group's house collapsed just after Mrs Smallbone took the photo, but the rest were still standing at lunchtime...when we ate them!

It's morning tea

It's morning tea time, we have made great progress! A couple of collapses but plenty of Royal icing, cardboard and even some cellotape and we are back on track

Gingerbread Houses 2011

Hey Guys,
At the start of term 4 we got given a list of home work choices we could do during the term. Our home work was based on bacteria, we had to complete 6 of the tasks before the term ended. Today all the homework was due. We sat in a circle on the mat and discussed what was our favorite task, what one was most challenging and what we learned about it.

Dick Frizzell...NZ Artist

In Room One we have been exploring Messages through Art. We have focused on the art of Dick Frizzell, a very talented NZ artist. We made a presentation using Googledocs...this was the first time we had done this! When we have been looking at our presentation we can see parts we could improve or develop for next time. These are our Next steps in learning, and we have quite good at identifying these this year. Have a look at our presentation, if your class has done something like this we would love to see it to help give us some more ideas!
