Getting Into The Christmas Spirit

Today for writing we had to follow a set of instructions to build a gingerbread house.  This was a fund learning experience that had a us all fully engaged.  After we had followed the instructions and built the house Mrs Bailey took the instructions away and we had to write our own instructions as a group for others to follow.

Playground Research

As a part of our topic this term (Giving Back) we have been looking at how we can make improvements to our school playground that will benefit the whole community.  Some ideas we have come up with has been a bike track, skate park or new playground equipment.  As a part of the the inquiry process we have investigated different play equipment with Greymouth and did PMI's around these.

What we have decided is we would like a bike track in the end paddock, some skating ramps and rails and to modernise our playground by adding some swings, seesaws or climbing frames.

Here are the photos of us doing research:
