Along with the rest of the Junior Syndicate Room 4 went to Castor Bay. We had a wonderful time exploring the rock pools. We found all sorts of creatures including starfish, shrimp, anemones and crabs. Who would have thought there were so many different types of seaweed? It was hard work clambering over the rocks and we certainly enjoyed our lunch sitting under the big tree. Then we had fun playing on the playground and building sandcastles. It was soon time to climb back on the bus and return to school. We were very tired but had a great time.

                    buddies and had a great time.

Last week Constable Harwood visited our class and showed us how to be safe when we’re out walking. We learnt about the safe way to walk along the footpath keeping to the house side. We practiced crossing the road the right way at the traffic lights and what to do when a vehicle is parked on the footpath. We even got to sit in the police car with Mrs Morley. It was great fun.

Look out for hazards on the footpath.

Walk close to the house side of the footpath when a vehicle is parked on the footpath.

What are you looking for Mrs Morley?

Stop! Look! and Listen before you cross the street.

Walk quickly across the road and keep checking for vehicles.

Most Fridays our buddy class visits us. Our buddy class is Room 13 and we love it when we get together. They are going on camp soon and they shared some things about camp with us. They also helped us with our poetry and listened to us as we shared our published stories with them. Thanks for visiting us and have a fun time on camp.

During Term 3 we experimented with print making. First we made print blocks using cardboard. We made a space scene with rockets and stars. Then we used white ink to make a print on black card. It was great fun and we made some fantastic space prints.

Library Time

Every Friday Room 4 go to the Library. We can get a new book to take home to share with our families. We can find interesting books that tell us lots of information. Its fun to read books to ourselves and then to listen to a story.
Mrs Sutherland helps us to issue the books that we are taking home. Sometimes if she is busy Mrs Cundy will help us. We love visiting the library.
