Discovery Time

We had a great time learning with the Wise Owls during Discovery Time last week. Jo came in and helped us make our own recycled paper and we had to show responsibility in many different ways, inside and outside with our buddies. Here is a little photo movie of our Discovery Time.

Word Family of the week

Last week we had the word family '_at' and we came up with heaps of words. e.g. bat, cat, fat, hat, mat and Matt, pat or Pat, rat, sat, vat and even Atta's name has 'at' in it! This week our word family is '_an'. e.g. can, fan... Can you think of some more and make a comment on our blog?

Our special book!

Here is Elliot with the special book we won for our class for the 'Dress Up Your Door' Competition. Thank you to The Hub!

Meg and Mog 'Dress Up Your Door' Competition

Go the Bright Bugs. We dressed up our door with some very gorgeous art based around the book 'Meg and Mog' - one of our favourites! We made pictures of Meg the witch and Mog the cat and Elliot even made a potion! We also wrote some amazing stories about the book. It is now on our wall display so do come and view! Oh - and we won the junior section so our class was gifted a book called 'The Clifford Collection'. Clifford is a fabulous BIG red dog! We are enjoying reading that at the moment! Hoorah for the Bright Bugs!

Letter of the Week - V Pictures

We had to think of lots of words that started with the letter 'v' and that had the letter 'v' in them. We are learning to draw at least 5 pictures. We have to draw the outline shape of the picture first with felt pen and then colour inside the shapes with coloured pencil. Look at these fantastic pictures!
