Room 9a's Wedding

We are learning about Celebrations.This week we learnt about Weddings.What does a wedding look like? Who is involved in a wedding? Where do they take place? Why do you get married? What do you wear? How do you get there? To answer some of our questions we decided to act out a wedding just like when we act out our shared book on Thursday.We all became a character in the wedding and talked about what we needed to organise for the big day.

On Monday we planned our wedding and choose our character.

On Tuesday we made invitations and invited one guest each to our wedding.

On Wednesday we made wrapping paper and wrapped a present for our guest.

On Thursday we iced 2 cupcakes each, 1 for our guest and one for us for the wedding cake.

The wedding was amazing and Mrs Newman was very proud. We wished we could have invited all the Junior School.

Watch the video it's so cute.

George's Marvellous Medicine

On Friday we made our own marvelous medicines.
We used flour, vinegar, oil, flowers, leaves, baking soda, herbs and paint to make the medicines.
We had a wonderful time mixing, creating and making them.

Then we made granny out of cardboard and paper and fed her some of our marvelous medicine to make her grow.It was so funny. We had lots of fun.

New World Little Garden update

The little gardens are growing beautifully in Room 9a and Room 18.
The children have been spraying them with water and putting them in the sunshine.
The children have each taken one plant home now to grow in their own garden and we will plant the leftovers in the class garden.
Watch this space.

New World Little Garden

Room 9a and Room 18 were very lucky to receive a New World 'Little Garden' project to do together.
On Friday we planted our seeds into the little pots with our buddies.
We had to mix the soil pod with water and lay the seeds on the top and then cover them with soil.
Then we put the labels into them and put them into our big garden kit.
Our little garden looks fantastic.
Come into Room 9a and see how our garden is growing.

We are learning about 'Water' in Room 9a.
First we had a brainstorm : What do we know about Water?
Then we had at look at water, what it looks like, feels like, tastes like, smells like, sounds like.
We learnt a new word for water 'Liquid'.
Then we talked about 'Ice' what is it? what it is made of, where it is found?, what we could use it for?, why do we need it?
Then we had an explore of ice with some ice hands. We touched it, smelt it, looked at it, listened to it and watched it melt. We got very cold hands but it was lots of fun.

Then on Thursday we used some water to make orange cordial. We watched how the water changed colour when we added the Raro crystals to it. We tasted it and then poured our liquid into ice-block molds. We then put it into the freezer over night. On Friday we took the ice-blocks out of the freezer and ate them. They are now solids. We ate them all up. Yum Yum.

Calendar Art

Have a look at our beautiful calendar art.
Wonderful gifts for Christmas presents or to send to family overseas.
The children sponged the backgrounds first and then they choose what they wanted on top.
The quote 'Every Child is an Artist' by Piccasso was our inspiration.
