Healthy eating, exercise, and keeping clean

To be healthy you need to eat good food.

Sandwiches are good food. They help our brain to work.

Fruit and vegetables are good for us. They have lots of good things in it.

Milk gives us strong muscles and bones.

Water is the best thing to drink!

Exercise makes you big and strong . Running is good exercise. Push ups are good exercises, too!

Having a shower makes you clean.

Make sure you clean your room!

Clean your clothes in the washing machine.

Brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes each time.

Ice blocks

On Monday room 1 made fruit traffic light ice blocks.

We used use a blender to mix the fruit and make it into a juice. 

First we used strawberries and pineapple to make the red part. That part went in first. We put the strawberry mixture into the ice block molds with a spoon.

Next we did the mango. We mixed the mango with pineapple and then we use another spoon to put the mango into the molds. It went on top of the strawberry.

After that we mixed up the kiwifruit with some pineapple and some mango. We had to add mango to make it tasty and yum. Without any mango it was too sour.

The ice block holders were beautiful and colourful. We made a lot of ice blocks. We think they will be tasty and very yummy.

They have lots of different fruit in them, 4 different kinds of fruit! We could make them again using apple, banana, pear, orange, manderines, blueberries, grapes, peaches.... anything that you can think of!

Zoofari Trip

First at the zoo we met some animals. We met a lizard and a hedgehog.

 Nate decided he looks like a monkey.
 Thom got some grass and put it in a box. Then he threw the box to the Kunekune pigs.
 The box got stuck on the Kunekune's head! The Kunekune was called Rodebud. It was funny!
 We saw the lizards.
 We saw the Red Panda. The Red Panda was eating some fruit.
 We saw the Chimpanzees! They were sleeping and snoring.
 We saw a little bit of the lions head. This is a boy lion. They have fur on their heads.
 The giraffes were eating food. They are really tall...
 These are baboons. They grey one is the boss.
 The Kangaroo wasn't hopping. It was still.

The squares are learning to share

We are learning to share a number.

We are trying to solve 12 between 3.
There are 3 little people so we are going to take 1 each. Then we take another one.
Then we take another and another. We have 4 each. We have the same! We know we have the right answer because the numbers are all the same.
