Library books

Today Room 21 went to the library to issue new books.
We noticed that many of us couldn't issue a new book today because we forgot to return our old books.

When we came back to the classroom, we discussed that it is important to return books on time.
Please look after our library books and put them in the bookbag as soon as you finish reading them.

Thank you.

Temple visit

On Tuesday, we went to the Buddhist temple in Botany.
We walked on the courtyard of temple which looked like a maze, some of us made wish at the wishing bell, made lotus flower band, learned 3Gs (Good deeds, good words, and good thoughts) and 4Gs (Give convenience, give confidence, give joy, and give hope to others), looked at the giant bell and the drum, and we also went inside the temple too!

Room 21 really enjoyed our new experience and the temple visit!
Miss Joo took so many photos of us and couldn't put all of them on our blog.
Please check out the link below for the photos!

Autumn leaves

Last week our poem of the week was called "Autumn leaves" so Room 21 went outside to collect some colourful and crunchy Autumn leaves.
When we came back to the class, we felt them, looked at them, smelled them, and scrunched them to listen to the sound they make.
Next day, we did buddy writing about Autumn leaves using simile.
Our buddies and I discussed and wrote one simile sentence each for Feel, Look, Sound, and Smell.

It was a new experience for all of us but we had fun.
Now our buddy works are displayed on our wall in Room 21, please come and read our fun simile sentences about Autumn leaves!

Road Safety

On Monday, we had special visitors who came to teach us Road Safety.
Constable Merv and Marian brought some photos of crossings for discussion then they took Room 21 outside and we practiced crossing the road safely.
We learned that it is important to stop, look, and listen!

We also learned we need to stop, look, and listen, then cross at the sneaky driveways.

Hope Room 21 remembers this to stay safe on the road!

Roman's rockpool study

In the holidays Roman visited rockpool, took photos, and made a rockpool study poster.
He also collected some dead crab shells and shared with Room 21.
Thanks Roman for sharing your wonderful study with us!

Anzac day poppies

On Friday, Sunnyhills school had a special assembly for Anzac day to remember the soldiers who have fought and died at the war.

Room 21 made red poppies to wear to remember them as well.
We used red tissue paper and pipe cleaners to make poppies to wear on our uniform.
Some parts were challenging to make but we all tried and succeeded!

Aren't they look beautiful?
