More Things are Growing! Welcome Back Lilly

As the days go by, we have noticed our seeds growing!  Look at our beans, cress and carrot tops! They must have sunlight, water, space and soil to grow!

We made our own bean glasshouses to watch the seed germinate!

 Welcome back Lilly from the UK!

Our growth wall is growing!!! 

 We even have a been maze! What do the think the bean will do inside this dark box with only light coming from the top?

Our inquiry this term is growth and what brings about growth. This is how we began our inquiry with WE WONDER questions:

We had a letter from a Giant at maths time and had to measure his hands and feet! 

Then we took our rulers outside to see if we could compare the giant's foot size.

We also planted some cress seeds to watch them grow into our crazy hair. We learnt that cress needs, soil, water and light to grow.

We did some Beanstalk Maths

And learnt about parts of a plant making a booklet:

We planted climbing beans! 

Sporting Fun!

We had lots of fun with a soccer, Kelly Sports and Sport Waikato days, practising our sport and getting fit for cross country this term.

Welcome To Term 3!

We are very excited about starting a new term with another new learner and a birthday!  Welcome Olivia and happy birthday Kaea!

A Giant visited our room and we had to measure his feet and hand prints he left behind! We then compared our own hands with the giants.

Barrier Games

We have been learning to use positional language and extend our sentences when we talk. Mrs Ray showed us how to play a barrier game with sticks, a barrier and a buddy. At first, we were not very good at explaining how to build what we had made, but after a few turns, we really thought about what we could say to make it easier for our buddies to build it! We love this new game.
