Switch To Water Challenge

The Switch to Water Challenge
Mineral, Water, Bottle, Empty, ...Reremoana is taking part in a ‘Switch To Water’ challenge for the month of November. It is all about switching sugary drinks to water for 30 days. The aim of this Challenge is to build good habits and cut sugar consumption, with water becoming the drink of choice.

They will earn House Points for each day at school they only drink water (plain school milk is fine too). It is up to you if you would like to continue this at home by promoting water at home too.

Growing Great Learners

Yesterday we had fun planting our own class garden. We enjoyed holding up the seed pads and comparing the size of the seeds. It was fun watching the soil expand and grow when we added the water. We have a range of vegetables and herbs we will enjoy watering and watching grow. I wonder which one will sprout first...

We wrote stories about planting our seeds. 
Come into Room 1 and enjoy reading our published stories.

Making Playdough

On Tuesday Room 1 made playdough! We had lots of fun measuring and mixing the ingredients we needed. We chose blue and green food colouring to make our playdough look exciting. When we were finished we wrote a story about making playdough, then we got to play with it!

This is our recipe:
1c flour
1/4 c salt
1T oil
1T cream of tartar
3/4 boiling water
