A Delicious Shared Lunch

Together with the other Year 2 classes we harvested veges from our Year 2 garden and made a stir fry. There were so many veges and we tried them all. Everybody had some and some people asked for extra helpings because they thought it was so delicious. We each tried teriyaki stir fry and sweet chili stir fry. Yum yum!!

Happy Halloween!!

We made pumpkins for Halloween. Do they look scary? We thought so!!

Kelly Sports

We were very happy to get out on the field and learn some new skills with the crew from Kelly Sports. Look at us go!!

A Special Visit From Our Bird Friends

Mrs Millar brought in her pet cockatiels Louis and Jonty for a visit. They had a great day visiting Room 11 and lots of other children came to see them too.

Vege Shop!!

Wow, we had so much fun having a stall to sell some veges from the Year 2 garden. We made signs to put up around school and lots of people came to have a look and buy something. We made some money too which will go back into our special garden.

Construction Time!!

We have a lot of fun constructing things. Look at this one - "I made an egg timer!!"

Youthtown Sports

We have been enjoying having fun with the team from Youthtown Sports. We had lots of fun races and learned some new ball skills.

Yummy Pumpkin Soup!!

As part of our inquiry into wellbeing, Room 11 made pumpkin soup together. We all got to have a turn mixing it and then we got to eat it. Most of us thought it was yummy, but a few of us weren't used to the creamy texture!!

Class Trip To East Tamaki Primary School

As part of our inquiry into wellbeing, Room 11 visited East Tamaki Primary School to learn all about gardening. Mrs Armstrong and some Year 6 children spoke to us about their garden. We got to plant our own lettuce seeds and we got to dig sheep pellets into the garden.

A Visit From Louis

We read the big book Bird Beaks so Mrs Millar brought Louis in for a visit so we could figure out what kind of beak he had. We decided he had the perfect beak for cracking seeds!! We watched him eating his favourite two minute noodles and peas. Lots of us got to hold him and Mrs Holdom gave him a little head rub!!
