Pixel visits Riverdale

We were very pleased to meet Adam's new kitten Pixel today.
  
Our family adopted a kitten.  My brother and I were very excited because we've wanted a kitten for so long.  She is so cute!  She has shiny black fur, white paws, beautiful green eyes and grayish white whiskers.  Her name is Pixel.  Some other names we thought were: Ninja Stealth, Pepper, Nyx and Sassypants.  Sometimes she is naughty and sneaky.  She climbs up the curtains and bites my finger.  But she is adorable!  By Adam

100 Days Smarter Writing

We wrote some wonderful stories about our 100 day party today.  What do you think of them?  Leave us a comment.

"Yay!  It was soooo fun on our 100th day of school.  You could make paper chains with 100 chains, 100th hats, and 100th day glasses.  Pop!  Suddenly one of the balloons popped and gave everyone a big fright.  We also got to make fairy bread.  It was delicious".  By Emily & Blake

"Yay!  Yay!  Today is the 100th day.  I can make my own fairy bread.  I made my fairy bread but not blue.  So I ate fairy bread and then I went to the painting and then it was clean up time."  By Anushka

"Yay!  Yay! It's the 100th day today and I liked the paper chains and making the hats too because I like the hats".

"Yay!  Yay!  It's the 100th day today.  Mum I'm not sick.  I can go to school.  So my mum dropped me to school".  By Kaleb

"I was doing some activities and I was having fun because I was doing paper chains because I wanted to do it". By Riley M


"Yay!  It's the 100th day.  I like sharing my dinosaurs stickers and Darious liked eating fairy bread and we did fun things".  By Darious & Devon

MRS PECK SENT US A LETTER!

WE ARE 100 DAYS SMARTER!

All of today's activities focused on the number 100.  Here are a few photos of what we got up to...

One of our activities was a Scavenger Hunt.  We had to find hearts with numbers on hidden around the room.  Once we found them we had to blu-tac them up in Wonderland.  Josh helped find numbers and was a great help putting them in order from 1 to 100.




 Some of us wrote stories about what we would be like when we are 100 years old.

Another station was to make a cup structure with paper cups.

Taika, Jaylim, Nina, Adam, Drew the Giraffe and Blake, made the number 100 with their cups.
Creative thinking guys!

Alex, Caleb, Darcy and Jack made some cool 100 day hats...


So did Adam...


We made 100 glasses.


How cool are WE!

  

We know that 10 groups of 10 equals 100.  We painted 10 dots on each of the sections.


 Here is a photo of Riley completing a 100s board puzzle.  It was pretty tricky but Riley preserved and got it done!
Well done Riley.



Look at these happy kids counting to 100 by rolling a dice by rolling a dice and colouring in the numbers.

100th Day of School

We have had a fabulous day celebrating 100 days at school.

Once we had completed our tasks we got to make fairy bread using 100s and 1000s.  Yummy!
  
  
Kyle, Mahiro, Keira and Hunter looked fantastic in their 100 day hat and glasses.

We were able to find the word 100.

 

Benji was able to follow instructions to make a 100 day monster.

HAPPY RETIREMENT MRS JOHNSTON!

Here is our special gift that we made for Mrs Johnston in our office.  She retires at the end of the term and we wanted to say thank you and to wish her well.


We quietly snuck up to Mrs Johnston's window and sang this song for her ...


Mrs Johnston was very happy to see us.





We love you Mrs Johnston and we will miss you!

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

We didn't realise that Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was a book before it was made into a movie. After we listened to the story today we made a list of some of the food we would and would not want to fall on us from the sky.
Parents please take note!

PLAYING SCRABBLE

At Maths time today, some of us played Scrabble.  We had to find out how many points each of the words was worth by using strategies such as making groups of 5 or 10 to help us count quicker.



Over the holidays, you might like to play Scrabble with us.  It helps us with our Spelling as well as our Maths!
