Learning to throw and catch on Dawson

 We went over to Dawson to learn how to throw
and catch small balls with Project Energise.

We learnt to have our thumbs in for high catches
and thumbs out for low catches.

We practised throwing the ball as far as we could.
We had to turn sideways, aim and throw.
It was lots of fun.

Great problem solving from our Lively Learners

We had to get the top of our green table fixed.
Dugan had taken it off.
At reading time we pretended the table top 
was still there.
We are very good at solving problems and being creative.

Fun at Reading Time

Flint read a book called 'How to make a parachute.'
He made a parachute at home.

This morning I tested my parachute.
I tested it from the playground.
It floated down.
It made a clicky sound.
It was cool.
Some people got a turn with my parachute.
I think my mum will like it. When I get home I will play with it.

Wow - what a great art tour!

The art was amazing. We saw lots of different types of art. We saw paintings, murals, statues, sculptures and architecture. We saw old buildings and new buildings.
Arabella thinks that Hamilton is one of the places that has the most art. 

The Art Bus Tour

Today we are going on our art bus trip to look at art in our city. It is very exciting. We want to see paintings, sculptures, statues and architecture. This is our map.

Being Creative . . .

Arabella brought a box of containers to school for us to use creatively.
We decided to decorate them and make baskets. 
We used paint and glitter.  

Then we put handles and ribbons on our baskets.

Cooking in our new kitchen

We are having lots of fun cooking with our new kitchen.
"I was pretending to cook rice.
I pretended to cook with a spoon,
a pot and a mixer."

I am making some pudding.
I used one strawberry and used some honey.
I cooked the pudding in a pot."
