Back at school after Teacher Only day!

Today we had a lot of parent helpers in our class. We went back to our normal reading groups, but some of us are now in different groups. Ashley, Hollie, Sarah and Makenzie did two songs with actions that they made up. We also finished our mural for the A&P Show, it looks really fantastic. We read our news'n'views, we did maths and then handwriting in our new handwriting groups.

A hot day in M9!

This morning we did the 4th verse of our poem for handwriting. Instead of maths we did news'n'views about a fire. We went to S2 to see Mr Rigter from the Westpac Bank. He talked to use about setting up a business [for our entrepreneur inquiry -Ed.].

After lunch we made a mural about our town. It was of Mt Grey (Maukatere Maunga). Some people did painting and others did drawing.

What we did today

Today we did handwriting. We did the third verse of a poem about 'Me'. Then we did maths. We played a game called 100 or bust and then we did our Basic Facts Challenge. After morning tea we did silent reading and peer reading. We read a story called 'Treasure Island'. We had a practice fire alarm. When the bell went we thought it was fun, but we know that a real fire could be dangerous.

This afternoon we were going to interview Pip from Pip's Kitchen because our inquiry topic is 'What does it take to be an entrepreneur?', but she was sick. So we planned our mural for the A&P Show, then we sang some songs.

Tuesday 13th

We saw our new fish today and now we're having a competition of who names the best name for the fish.
In News'n'Views we learnt about a special suit that helps us not to get the swine flu.
This afternoon we had a guess about what it means to be an entrepreneur. We are excited about our topic because we are going to be making stuff and selling at our school market day.
