Rainbow Namebows

We have been learning about descriptive writing and adjectives this term.  We thought up lots of adjectives (describing words) for people and then we chose some words off the list to write acrostic poems about ourselves using the letters in our names.  We published them on rainbow clouds to make "Namebow" poems.  Don't the look lovely and bright hanging in our classroom? Come into B4 and take a look at the rest of our colourful namebows!

3D Shapes

In maths we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes.  We did a 3D shape treasure hunt around our classroom.  Look at all the different 3D shapes we found hiding on our shelves, tables and even on the whiteboard!

Fun Ferns netball

This week we have been lucky enough to have three Fun Ferns netball lessons.  We have learnt three types of passes - chest pass, bounce pass and rainbow pass.  We have also been doing lots of fun running and passing drills.  Jo, our coach, was so impressed with our fantastic netball skills.

Thank you to the parents who came along and helped with our lessons and thank you to Caitlin's dad who took these great photos of us practising our rainbow passes.  Our balls had to make a curve high in the air like a rainbow.
