More from our Tuesday Cooking Club

We had a lot of yummy tacos and heaps to eat. We will make Mexicalli  Burritos next time with a healthy salad.

Wow look at this great cooking book I wonder who is going to keep the best recipes and notes and have lots of great illustrations in their book too.

Candice has worked hard so she enjoys sitting quietly after all her preparation and enjoying her tacos.

Cooking Club

We have been cooking many different dishes in our cooking club. Last week we made hot-dogs. We had to toast the buns, cook the onions, cook the sausages, butter the buns. We did this in our groups and then put our hot dogs together.

This week we made Nachos and put baked beans and tinned tomatoes in with our Mexicalli Mince flavour.
The Nachos were covered with our lovely mixture. We had to brown the mince and add all the ingredients. After we covered our nachos with our yummy mixture we added cheese to the top. It was hot so this made the cheese melt.

Our Class Assembly

This week it was our turn to take the school assembly. Soane lead the assembly by doing the presenting. He was an excellent presenter.

He had a lot to read and he did so well, just like the rest of us. Everyone said we were fabulous

We showed our letterboxes. Our letter boxes are made from shoeboxes and we decorate them and write our address and phone number on them. This helps us remember our address and phone number which is important as we are learning from Constable Jud about 'How to Keep Ourselves Safe'. We were able to tell the students in assembly what our address and phone numbers were.


After that we sang a song about Walking safely around the neighbourhood and crossing the road carefully.

This was an action song and we sang it really well and did all the actions. At the end we had to say "Stop!Cross when the road is clear"

Here we are showing how your must look right then left and cross when the road is clear.

We also sung a Maori song "Turi Turi" It was an action song. You can see us turning in the photo.

Lastly after all the certificates had been presented some of read the play "The Three Billy Goats Gruff"
The troll was really scary but the Billy Goats were able to cross the bridge safely.

We did many different activities for our assembly. We worked hard and it was lots of fun!!!

Our Maths Problem Solving

We have been working with partners and groups to do lots of problem solving in Maths. This way we learn heaps and have to try to work out the answers together.
 We get to whisper to each other about what we are doing and how we get the answer. We do lots of sharing and get to work with a lot of materials.

Here we are working in our group with our partners. At the end we had another problem to solve.

Our Inquiry Day - Inquiry Continues

We are still making some comparisons this term with our country of study and  the places in New Zealand where those people from the country settled.

We will be looking at the landscapes, buildings and foods of Scotland as well as some of the pastimes of the Scottish people. We will compare this with Dunedin and some other parts of New Zealand.

Our Inquiry Day from Last Terms Studies

The soldier in salute
We all presented our Inquiry Studies from our last terms work which was on The Anzac Memorials for the 100 Years Remembrance and the countries where our some of our Grandparents. We are also studying the areas in New Zealand that that were settled by them. For example we are looking at ScoTland. We studied where the country is and then looked at Dunedin as a lot of Scots settled in Dunedin. Room 5 studied France and looked at Akaroa on the Peninsula near Christchurch. This study also helps us know many regions in New Zealand. We are continuing to study our special country this term.

This is a display on the French Festivals. We can see what French people like to celebrate and how they celebrate.

Look at our great work that was displayed in the hall for our parents to view, We all got to look at all the other classes work too and learn a lot from each classes presenters.
