No Photos Thursday...

...well, from me anyway.

Good evening,

We kicked off the day with a wee maths assessment...

Measurement Post Test

...some writing...

...and finished the day with our whole school Easter Liturgy.

I was very proud of Room 2 - we were the only class where every member had a role to play. Thanks again Shaun for the carpentry!

Have a great break, and I'll see you all bright and shiney for Term 2 in a couple of weeks.

Mr Grant

Oh, and this just in...

Hi Mr Grant and Room 2 I am missing you!

I hope you have great school holidays and a lovely Easter.

I did the Giant Drop twice at Dreamworld, mum thinks I'm crazy!

Love Hannah

Murky Wednesday

Well, it is now. Thankfully, the drizzle didn't set in 'till 2:30.


This morning we got hold of Room 6's rulers and measured the width of our toy outlines.

This afternoon we practiced for tomorrow's liturgy...

...and we finally found an answer to our inquiry questions.

Ahhh, so that's where lava comes from. For the same reason there are volcanoes on Io.

Have a nice evening, and we'll see you at the liturgy tomorrow.

Muddy Tuesday

Good afternoon,

I must appologise for the state of your children this afternoon - we ended the day playing Tee Ball against Room 12 for P.E., and, well, the field was a touch damper than I thought!

However, the day started much, well...cleaner! Specifically, some estimating and measuring...of body parts...

And a good time was had by all!

Have a nice evening,

Mr Grant

CRT Monday

Good afternoon,

I had some classroom release time today while the rest of the Rutherford team planned for next term. A trip to Ferrymead 'n all!

Anyway, Mrs O'Neill oversaw Room 2 in my absence, while they waved good bye to the Year 5s and 6s to camp...

...did some measuring...

...and practiced for Thursday's liturgy.

And a fabulous day was had by all!

Air Con Friday

Good afternoon,

Room 2 has just had a new toy installed - a heat pump!

However, that did kind of mean we had to shift out while they put it in.

We did manage a bit of poetry...

...and a visit to the library...

...but, well...errr...not much else!

Still, Room 2 did run a good assembly!

Have a great weekend,

Mr Grant

Inquiry Thursday

Good afternoon,

Today was all about finding out about stuff. Or trying to.

First with a bit of Maths. The children drew around their soft toys... that they could then use a consistent unit of measurement (multi link cubes) to discover how tall it was.

After lunch we practiced out parts for the Easter Liturgy...

...before carrying on with our volcanoes inquiry that we started at the beginning of the week.

Monday was all about listing what we knew...

Tuesday and Wednesday was then asking questions to find out stuff we didn't already know, and where from.

Today we looked through some books...

...which lead to another question...

...which is kind of what inquiry is all about.

Good stuff!

Mr Grant

Oh, and now that we have the teddy silhouette, we don't need the toys back at school. If they haven't made their way home tonight, they need to do so tomorrow.

Oh, and talking of tomorrow - we're on assembly! Though we won't actually be doing anything too flash...

Oh, and Galoop met his much younger brother!
