We grew Beans....

After weeks of watching and waiting and watering our plants we finally got to sample our beans. Some of us thought they tasted really sweet and some of us didn't really like them. We don't mind though, we are just very proud of ourselve for growing our own beans. Has anyone out there grown their own vegetables?

Our recipe for making Gingerbread Men

How to make a Gingerbread Man....recipe to follow

An update.....WE HAVE BEANS!!

We made a bridge....

After reading the Three Billy Goats Gruff we decided to design and make our own bridges. Our design brief was that it must span from table one to table three and be able to hold two goats and a couple of toy cars without bending. Some of our bridges were able to withhold lots of cars and goats and some were not. We have really enjoyed being able to build our own bridge.

Our Art Rage Class

We have been working hard to create our portraits using Art Rage. We had to sketch over our photo and then use an e-paint brush to complete our look. It was very tricky to do but the results are fantastic. We have such a cool looking class.....what do you think?

We are so proud of our achievements and had a party to celebrate.....we all agree that the cake was the best.
Room 17 Says THANK YOU

Mondrian Pics

For maths week we designed our own Mondrian art. We used black sharpie and bright colours. They look cool. Room 17

Maths roadshow came to town

We had to build blocks and follow instructions to make shapes against a mirror, SW, JT and CS

We had monkeys and we had to count all the flashes from a switch as the monkeys raced against each other down the board, FS

We had to drop blocks into holes to work out the temperature of different cities and answer questions. Peace out, SW, JT and CS

There was a code that we followed to pull levers out and it showed parts of pictures. You followed the instructions and when they were in the right order they spelt out a name
, the boys name was Tim and the girl was Joy. JD and LT

Maths roadshow came to town

Graham made all of the maths games for us to play with.
JE had to find out how many things he could fit on the back of the truck before it was overloaded.

We had to move the board to get the cow through the gates, it took us 12 gates. AR

MdK says it was tricky to get the blocks in the right place.

You had to find two trails to get the rabbit home SB

We were playing a treasure hunt, we had to move a block to see how many spaces we needed to get to the treasure, TD

Dolphin Stampede

We wanted to share this video with you all because we thought is was amazing. We have learnt about animals in their habitats and this shows you dolphins in theirs. We think it would be cool to see in real life. Have you ever seen a pod of dolphins?

We have spent some time during maths this week playing basic facts games on the laptops. We really enjoy playing these and Miss Wright says that we all work together really well and are very focussed.

Monday, June 22, 2009

We were very scared. We screamed when Miss Wright came in I went over it was ok. I ate bubble gum I blew a big bubble and it popped and it was In my afro and face.
When I woke up something was on head maybe a afro I think it is a afro I walk to school and when it’s windy I fall over and The afro save me and I say I am keeping this afro and I am keeping the afro a long long time

I tried to take it off and it worked but then it just frizzed up again. I put water on it and it fell in my eyes .Ha I could not see and I accidentally went into the toilet I fell in the toilet hole and my feet was kicking at the window and cracked it open .I fell out.
