Our Water Inquiry

Today Mrs P showed us our inquiry model again and this time we were able to explain to each other what stage of our model we were up to. In Room 11 we have doing lots of "Setting the Scene" activities, we had a water day, watermelon afternoon tea party, created some water art on our netball court and we have a little surprise happening this week on Thursday. I wonder if you can guess what it might be?

She introduced our big question - How can we be responsible for conserving our fresh water? Then we went away in groups and brainstormed "Water Conservation" - it was very tricky because alot of us didn't know what conservation meant...

Telecom Bagging

Last week was one of the busiest fundraisers we have all year. It was telecom bagging week and our school was busy bagging and delivering new telephone directories around Howick. Here is what we got up to...

It was a late late night - it was telecom bagging night...

I was so excited. When I got there it looked like a big job. Some people weren't even helping, they were just riding a skateboard down a hill.

At first I didn't know what I was doing then someone told me. It was pretty easy, I was just putting books on tables

Water day

WOW Its water day! At first me and my friend went to do a few jobs for Mrs D. After that we went to the swimming pool for a swim. We first did a warm up our warm up was a whirlpool. Then we went for a jog around the little field and from the field we went to are classrooms to get a towel. Next we went to play a game of water babies. It was so fun. Then we went to do water art, I loved doing water art - it was the best!!
