Spheros and Beebots

 






We had a fun session drawing chalk tracks and making the spheros and Beebots move around them. Have you ever tried using them?

Burger

 Here is another poem from Nigel's literacy group. This is a rhyming couplet poem about burgers.


Meat pattie juicy in a bun,

eating it up is a lot of fun,


Biting into it can be quite a mess,

cheese, bacon and tomato is the best,


Once I’m finished I don’t want more,

Because my tummy is kind of sore.

The Piwakawaka

 Nigel's Literacy group shared some ideas and came up with this Diamante poem about the Piwakawaka.


Piwakawaka

fluffy, tiny

flitter, flutter, swerve

brown feathers, black tail

Swooping, catching prey

pretty, wonderful

Fantail

Riley making a difference!

Everyday since school has been back, Riley spends 20 minutes after school picking up rubbish to help keep the school clean. His mum is super proud of him. Some days his friend Mason will help.


Tic Tac Toe Basketball

For Monday Mashup, Urmi's group learned a new game called Tic Tac Toe basketball. You had to play against another team to do was score a basket. Then you could add a bib into the Tic Tac Toe grid. The first team to get three bibs in a row won. It is lots of fun and you practice your dribbling skills and shooting skills.

Have you ever played this game before?
