Letters to Miss Denny

Miss Denny has sent The Landing some photographs and emails about her trip. The children wrote some letters to Miss Denny to ask her about her trip. 

Walter's Trip to Wellington

Walter shared a book about his trip to Wellington.
Walter’s Nana and Poppa created a book sharing the pictures of his trip.

Room 9 loved seeing the pictures and listening to Walter share about his trip. He also shared about his light up fidget spinner which he got for his 5th birthday.

Ethan Wins

Ethan entered a competition to win Stikbots for The Landing and himself… he WON!

He created a comic story about a dinosaur and a person.
The man and the dinosaur were walking along and then they had to sneak under a rock to get to the treasure. The dinosaur fell over and the man sadly died from the lava!
Oh no!

Room 9 were very excited and thankful. Ethan even thought of Mrs Roycroft’s boys and Mrs Nilsson’s daughter.

Thank you for working hard to win The Landing such an amazing treat, Ethan! We love them!

“We fell off the boat”  Ella
“The life jackets felt squishy” Mark
“We had a grab bag in case anything happen to the boat” Walter

“We made a circle so people could see us from up above”  Lauren

Trolley For The Tōtara Tree

We love watching our Team tōtara tree grow. We are in Team Tōtara and we are growing every day, just like our tree.
When we get our brand new tree we will be able to plant the tree somewhere special.
In the meantime, we have to take our tree outside every day so it gets the fresh air it needs. It is pretty heavy so Mrs Nilsson was very grateful to Robin's Dad for making us a wonderful trolley that she can use when she is moving the tree.
Thanks for showing aroha!!!

Where The Wild Things Are

We have enjoyed exploring the story Where The Wild Things Are this term.

One of the highlights was designing a boat for Max to sail
through night and day
and in and out of weeks
and almost over a year
to where the wild things are.

We thought carefully about our design plan and then had great fun using all the stuff from Creative Junk to make our boats.

Would it float or not? It was great fun trying them out. They all floated, except Mr Hastilow's (and when we talked about it we decided his Max was a bit too big!).

Cross Country

What a lovely Christchurch autumn day for our cross country.
Didn't the children do well!
We were very proud of their efforts and their behaviour.
It has been great that we have had such good weather and this enabled us to do lots of practices.
