On Tuesday we went to Ambury Farm. I saw a hairy horse. My mum came with me. I fed the chickens. There are lots of animals at Ambury Farm. Rashha

I went on the ipad and found a new maths game. I have to look at the numbers and figure out the right answer. There are 3 different answers and I have to press the star with the right number inside, and then it goes up beside the number sentence and it looks right.
"My question is 5 + 2 = 7. It is easy for me because I count with my fingers. Next time I will try level 4 and see if it is hard or easy for me."

The teacher read a book called 'The Dandelion Seed' by Joseph Anthony. Then we made our own picture of a dandelion seed blowing around. After that we wrote our Acrostic Poem about Spring. We wrote the word SPRING down the side of our page and we wrote some words about Spring. Mrs Kerr published our best work. We displayed it on the wall in Room 1. We read our poems to the teacher and she recorded it on the computer. Press the play button and you will hear my voice saying my awesome poem.
"I like reading a book and sometimes I read on my mum's phone. Mum and Dad say I am a cool reader and they are happy. I like to read about important stuff."

I wrote my story in my book. I checked with Mrs Kerr. She helped me import my photo into kidpix. I typed the words by myself. It took a long, long, long time. It's tricky to type the right letter. I decorated my photo so that it looks like me when I am grown up.
"I am learning to write the right sentence. Now my stories are much longer because I use more letters. I am very happy with my picture because I like being a doctor and I look like a doctor in this picture."

At reading time we can read a book with Mrs Kerr and then we can look at the same book on the computer and we can do some activities with the letters and words. It's called P.M. Readers.
"I can read Clever Fox with Mrs Kerr. I can play a little game on the computer about the clever fox. I got 3 right because they are golden dogs. I got 1 wrong because it is a grey dog. Next time I will try again and maybe I will get 4 golden dogs. Then I would feel happy."

I am learning about shapes like the circle, triangle, diamond, rectangle, square, hexagon, octagon, pentagon, cube and the trapezoid. Trapezoid is a cool word and a cool shape. I chose some shapes and I cut them out of coloured paper. I glued them onto my paper to make a picture of my house. We put them all together on the wall to make our Room 1 community.
"I used some circles, triangles, squares and rectangles to make my picture. My favourite part is my house because it looks nice on the outside. My picture looks perfect."

Every day I write a story. I can choose my best story for publishing with Mrs Kerr. Usually my best story goes into my publishing book and I can illustrate it on Friday. Sometimes I write a big, amazing, beautiful, awesome story. This story is about a cold, cold day. I cut out shapes in some paper to make a snowflake. Now my story and my snowflake are up on the windows in Room 1. I have seen people reading my story. That makes me want to do the happy dance!
"I like writing stories about my weekend when I see my cousins. I can find lots of words by myself. I can fix my story by myself. I have to fix the capital letters because sometimes they are in the wrong place. Then my story looks better."

I go to PMP (Perceptual Motor Programme) with Mrs Murray. She puts the music on and I do lots of activities. I dance, I hop, I jump, I slide and I freeze. Sometimes I use equipment and sometimes I do not. This is called the Dizzy Giddy. I have to move my body to spin the Dizzy Giddy around. It feels fast and dizzy. I love PMP because I can move my body around.

I went to the Pakuranga Library on the bus. The library people read some books about Matariki. They did a little play and the sun got caught in a net and it was funny. After that we looked around the whole library. There were lots and lots and lots of books. Mrs Murray let us issue 3 books with her library card. I was happy!
When I came back to school I could make a necklace. First I coloured it in and then I cut it out. Mrs Kerr put a string through the hole and I put it around my neck and took it home.

I am learning how to write a story. I draw a picture to help me plan my work. I use the day card to help me write the day correctly. I use my alphabet card to help me write the letters and words.
"I like to write about my weekends. I can find some words by myself!"

I am learning to use the pictures to help me to read the words in my book. When I look at a new page, I look at the pictures first. Next, I look at the words and I try to read them. The pictures help me to read the words that I don't already know.
"I can point to the words and I can read them to the teacher. I like to read books about 'My Little Pony."

I am learning to write the numbers up to 10 and put them into the correct order, forwards and backwards.
"Number 2 is a bit tricky because I do it right sometimes. I like to make the numbers on the peg boards and I am doing 14 because the teacher said."
