This term we are learning about the diversity of plants.  This means we will be discovering lots of different plants, types of plants, the many places plants can be found, and the many ways we can look after plants....not to mention the many uses of plants.  So much to learn!

This week we've started off by planting some seeds and plants, so we can watch them grow over the next few weeks.

Yesterday we planted some radishes and potatoes in our section of the edible gardens.  There are a lot of keen gardeners in Room 10.

The potato plants had 'self-sown' themselves in the flower garden!
So we will see if they will grow in the school garden instead.

We had to loosen up the soil by digging it up.  It didn't take long for 10 of us to dig up the garden!

Here are two potato seeds.  They are a lot bigger than the radish seeds.
A big thank you to Connor for taking these wonderful photos.

Road Safety entries...

Over the last several weeks some groups of children have been working hard on creating a storyboard about staying safe as they come to school.

This was the process each group followed:
1.  Brainstorm different ways to keep safe on their way to school.
2.  Choose one of the ways to keep safe.
3.  Decide who their characters will be.
4.  Plan a beginning, middle and ending for their story.
5.  Follow their plan and create a storyboard (stretch out their beginning, middle and ending).
6.  Re-read their storyboard, change, add or delete...
7.  Miss O'Neill put their creation onto a powerpoint, then printed it.  The groups then had to re-edit it.
8.  Record their voices reading the story.

So you can see it was an extremely long process - how clever are the children from Room 10!

Here is Rosie and Timothy's creation:

School Holidays

Mr Bojangles resting.
Oh dear!  Both Miss O'Neill and Mr Bojangles have been sick with the flu over most of the holidays.  Luckily after lots of rest we are feeling much better and can't wait to see everyone again on Monday.

While we were sick we discovered some ways to stop our germs reaching other people.  I wonder if Room 10 know these too?

1.  Wash our hands, especially after using the toilet, coughing, sneezing and blowing our noses.  In Room 10 we share a lot of things like pencils and crayons...let's show WE CARE by washing our hands regularly.

2.  Cough or sneeze into our elbows if we can.  If we cough or sneeze into our hands...remember to wash them straight away.

3.  Don't come to school sick!  Keep your germs at home!

Adam from Kelly Sports

On Monday Room 10 were lucky enough to have Adam (from Kelly Sports) come and take us for PE. We love Adam!  He teaches us how to play so many fun games which make us move, jump, pass the ball and lots more.

Here we are playing Volcanoes and Valleys!  Make a comment if you are interested in how to play this game!

Room 10 Photo

A few weeks ago we had our class photos done.  
Here is ours.  
What an absolutely good looking classroom we are!
A wee mistake...Warren was also absent on photo day.
