Calendar Fish

On Thursday we completed our fish pictures ready for families to order 2010 calendars or cards. Have a quick look at them here but you can also check them out on your child's individual blog at Room 11 Kidz Stuff. Final orders need to be in by this Friday, 6th November.

Our poem this week was 'A Busy Day' by Michael Rosen. Thank you Zandi for the lovely colouring. How many times can you hear the word 'pop' as you listen to our class performance.

Due to this week just being 3 days we do not have much else to share with you but have a look at what we will be doing in week 4 of term 4.

In our Fresh Water Inquiry topic we will be working on forming effective questions to help us acquire the knowledge we need to discover how to keep a stream healthy. On Thursday afternoon we will be going on our first stream visit and seeing how many different types of animals live in the stream. All helpers very welcome..bring your gumboots!

In literacy we will be looking at short vowels to help us with our spelling, adverbs to make our writing more interesting and the tricky words 'two' and 'because'. Our poetry focus will be a haiku poem on the subject of fireworks. In art we will be doing observational drawings of stream creatures and producing a picture to go with our firework haiku. Our focus in maths will be subtraction in the range 0-10 as well as our specific focus for each group. In P.E. we will be continuing to join in Jump Jam sessions with Room 6 and start exploring throwing skills.

Have a great week and stay safe.
