Easter day in Room 2

On Thursday we had a special Easter day in our room, we even had a special guest from Mrs Ray's house!  

This is Sweet P and we loved having her in class with us all day.

Mrs Ray even looked like a bunny!

We made some Chocolate Easter nests!

What cute little treats!

After that we made some special finger print Easter cards......

 And some Easter egg flags that we hung around our necks!

Dakota read Sweet Pea story.....

We ended the day with a movie called 'Hop'.  What a egg-cellent day.

We hope you all had a Hoppy Easter Weekend!

Paper Mache Team

On Friday we had a great team of helpers join us to help paper mache some water balloons.  We used such great determination and perseverance to get them all covered to dry.  We were very grateful to have the family helpers, thank you.

Number Fans

Today we had some number practice with our class number fans.  We asked each other what a number was, what number came before and what number came after.  Our brains are growing so much!

Hot Air Balloon At Our School!

Yesterday we were VERY lucky to have Whiskey the Hot Air Balloon come to Pukete School.

At 12.00 it was spitting and a bit windy so we were very worried the balloon would not come!  At 12.15 Mr Oliver said they were going to give it a go so all the school went out to the field.  We watched the balloon be filled first, with a fan blowing air and then with hot air from the propane burners.  The noise was very loud like a WOOSH!  The hot air had nowhere to go so it made the balloon fill up and rise up!   Mr Oliver went in the balloon!

We have learnt a lot about balloons and made this chart before we went out to see the balloon.

There is also a Lioness called Nikita we watched on Friday!

Pretty amazing to see them live!!
