1st week of Term 4!

We have had a busy first week and now can enjoy a lovely long weekend with Labour Day on Monday! 

We welcome Emma to our class this term.  Emma has returned to Halswell after living in England for 2 years.     She was lucky enough to get to go to watch Trampolining and Canoeing at the Olympics before she returned home to New Zealand.

This week we have done Geometry in maths this week.  We know that a decagon has 10 sides and a dodecagon has 12 sides.  We have got very quick at knowing our 3D and 2D shapes in Loopy and got a record time of 1.06 minutes!

We have learnt what prefixes and suffixes are:

We know the difference between a simple sentence and a compound sentence.
Simple - I have a dog.
Compound - I have a dog and her name is Daisy.   (Ollie's sentences)

Seamus shared his animations that he made at home.  Here is one of them:

We are looking forward to a great last term!  Especially to our upcoming trip to Willowbank.
We also found out that we will be getting an ipad to trial in our class for the term so can't wait to use it!
