We had great fun blowing bubbles and wrote some amazing stories about it!
We came up with lots of describing words like; gloopy, slippery, shiny, shimmery, sloppy, amazing, beautiful, glimmering, wobbly, floating, popping, squishy and splashy!
Well done LZ6, you are doing some great writing!

We have made some great artwork that we call 'Rainbowland'. We were inspired by an artist called Fredrich Hundertwasser who painted bright colourful artwork and designed very cool buildings. We designed our own buildings in our own Rainbowland and painted them very carefully with dye. What do you think? We think it would be cool to live there!

Last week we held a 'Fancy Feet parade' to celebrate the official signing of our Travelwise plan. All of us got to dress up our feet in whatever crazy way we could think of. There were jandals and slippers and wheelies and flippers!!! Max the pukeko from Travelwise came to our assembly as well as lots of other important guests! It was lots of fun!!

We have loved visiting the Life Education caravan over the past week! Celia and Harold the giraffe have been talking to us about what it means to be healthy. We need to have a balanced diet, keep ourselves clean, do some exercise, drink lots of water, have good air to breathe, a decent nights sleep and love from our family and friends to have a healthy mind and body!

Sorry it has been a few weeks since our last post - been rather busy all round and our poor blog has been neglected!
But never fear, we are back and look at our awesome art! We read a big book called Ratty Tatty Cat and decided to make our own cats using chalk, crayon and dye. We had to be really careful with the chalk to make our lines big and bold. When we coloured in it was important not to go over the chalk and then the dye went over the top of it all. It was like magic because the chalk all turned black. We think we did a great job!

Today we had a visitor at school at lunchtime. It was Alvin the chipmunk! He came with some notices about a holiday programme that we can go to if we want. Some of us got to shake his hand and give him a high 5! Lots of children from LZ6 even got a hug! He was a bit old because he was grey...and he was very furry!

Last week at assembly we were very lucky to have this wonderful performance of the song 'True Colours' by the senior school children. There was a great photo slideshow on the screen at the same time but it is a bit hard to see that on the video! What fantastic singers they are!

We love doing sport in the junior school! Each week we have Physical Education with our learning zone and we also have sport all together where we split up into our house groups and rotate around activities. We work on our ball skills, our co-operation skills and work with lots of different and fun equipment!
This was the first 'official' singing of our new school song called "Growing Excellence" at our school assembly this week. Did you know it was written and composed by Mrs Kennedy's daughter? We are all just learning it but we sound pretty good already!

We read "Grumpy Bear" as our big book and decided it would be cool to make a movie of it. We each had to play a different character and there were two groups being videoed.
As the file size was rather large we couldn't just upload it but had to post it on Youtube and embed it from there. If the video is slow to play or keeps stopping, double click the window and it will take you to Youtube where it plays much faster.

Today we went to the pond to release the last 4 frogs. They are too big to stay in LZ6. We sat on the rocks and then we released the frogs into the pond. We took photos of the frogs in their new home. We will miss them a lot because they have been cool to have in our class.

At our first session with our buddy class we did buddy reading with all our new library books. Each week when we meet we will try new things together - reading, games, computer skills, visiting the playground, art etc. We think it is a great way for us to have fun while helping each other!
