Our New Kid Teacher!

Hi my name is Darian. Yesterday I was the teacher in LC16 and 15 for Big Book reading with the other year 2s. I am a cool teacher! Miss Crowther and the other year 2's thought I was a GREAT teacher because I asked some clever questions about punctuation and bold words. I wonder who will be the teacher for Big Book next week…

Tyler's Medal!

During the week Tyler brought in a medal that his Dad earned for fixing helicopters in the airforce. He was very proud to show it and was telling all of us about the special medal all day! Thanks for bringing it in Tyler, those of us that got to see it loved having the opportunity to see a real life medal. :-) We all thought your Dad must be pretty cool to have earned it!

In Piako 2 this week we have been learning lots about ANZAC Day. Today our team got together to make a wreath of poppies to lay at our school's ANZAC service tomorrow morning. We were very happy with how it turned out and think it would make the soldiers proud. Here are some photos of us making our special wreath to lay!

We Love Measuring!

In Maths we are learning about measurement. We have been learning how to use non standard units to measure lots of classroom objects, and are becoming experts at ordering objects from shortest to tallest. Here are some photos of us in action!

What an awesome day!

We had the best day ever in Piako 2!! Today we had a visit from a very special fairytale character... Belle from Beauty and the Beast! Belle came in to see the wonderful things we have been doing to help solve the problems of her friends in Storybook Land. She answered lots of our questions, and we learned lots of cool things about life in her land. Did you know it rains glitter there?!
We all did so well and made our teachers and parents very proud. We can't wait to see if we get any more letters from Belle and her friends now that they know the clever thinking we are capable of!
