Get NZ Writing 2017

Today we received our Get NZ Writing
Courier Bag sent to us from Room 7 Fenwick School Oamaru North Otago South I sand.   It was fun to see their metaphor postcards and their info sheet.  Before receiving their Mahi we already knew that their school was in Oamaru Otago in the Soth Island.  We tried to find their blog but couldn't find one.  

We enjoyed looking and talking about their work.

Get NZ Writing

Over the last 2 weeks we have been taking part in the Warehouse Stationery "Get NZ Writing"

The class we will be swapping our writing with is Room 7 a Year 3/4 class from Fenwick School in Oamaru.

Today Marco Sienna and Kiralee did a search on our Chrome books to find out about our buddy class and school.  Sienna found out they have blue uniforms like us.

Kiralee found out that they have Cameras and I PADS in their classrooms.  Marco found they had a swimming pool and have 13 classrooms while we have 22.

We have learnt about adjectives and metaphors for our postcards and completed our class poster.

This afternoon we will be delivering our package to the office for the courier to pick up tomorrow.

We can't wait for our parcel to arrive!!!!!

Going home!!!

Another successful Millennium Trip completed. 

A big  thank you to my wonderful parent helpers Natalie (Keeleys Mum) Stephanie (Olivers Mum) Hamish (Angus' Dad)  Lewis (Siennas Dad). 

Also a big thank you to the Millenium Teaching Staff ... it is such a buzz to see the progress my children make during the day. 

There was much fun and learning had by all!!!

Life Saving

This afternoon Room 16 will be Life Saving and Kayaking.

First we put on our life jackets.

We learnt different techniques including the huddle.  We saved each other in our boat yeaay. 

We learnt that when we need help in the water do not swim freestyle because our arms are out of the water and we get cold really fast but if we dog paddle or breast stroke our arms stay in the water and we don't get as cold.  Good to remember!
