Spring blossoms and butterflies

We have been talking lots about the change of season in B4.  We have noticed that the weather is warmer and it is lighter in the evenings.  There have been some mother ducks and their ducklings waddling around the school fields.   Lots of daffodils were blooming in the school gardens just before the holidays.  In the school holidays some of us travelled out of Lower Hutt and saw cute baby lambs in the paddocks.  We have also heard lots of noisy Tui and other birds singing beautiful songs in the mornings.   They must love the sun too!

Just after the holidays our blend of the week was spr.  We celebrated spring by writing some beautiful "Spring is" poems and making spring blossoms pictures using fingerprints and white and pink paint. Here are some of our wonderful artworks and poems.  We tried to use interesting words that would paint a picture in the mind of our reader.  Can you see in your mind what we are describing?

We also made some pretty spring butterflies out of kitchen towels, colourful dye and sparkly pipecleaners.  They look beautiful swaying in the breeze next to our windows.

  1. Wow! I love all the Spring poems and those trees are something else! Well done. It is moving into Winter here in London, England. It's lovely to hear the sun is shining elsewhere in the world, as it is just foggy and cold here at the moment!
    Your butterflies are wonderful and I love the idea of them gently moving in the warm Spring breeze ... fantastic!
