Happy National Jandal Day

Today it is National Jandal Day.

We are wearing our jandals and beachy clothes to support the Surf lifeguards.

We all brought in a gold coin, our class raised $23! We wonder how much our WHOLE school will raise?

We are all having a lot of fun dressed up in our clothes and this afternoon we are going to be having a "Handle the Jandal" afternoon of games with the rest of the school.

Shared writing by Room 4

Check out our Jandals in our Movie below!!!

Prizes for our Picture Book!

Yesterday, Room 4 checked our emails and there was an email from the Feet First people. Then a big box arrived.

It had a message on it. It said that we were one of the top 5 finalists “Highly Commended” in the competition for making a picture book of safe ways to get to school.

In the box there was 11 brand new library books. One of the books is called “I’m a whale”, the next book we took out of the box was called “Never eat a princess".

We’re very proud of ourselves!

You can read our picture book "Pukeko's A - Z School Travels" here if you haven't already.

Sunflower Window Art

Room 4 drew some sunflowers with vivid on to glad wrap which was on our window.

When everyone drew one we painted the sunflowers in red, yellow, orange, and green.

It took a long time to paint the sunflowers.

We think our sunflower art looks beautiful and looks like we have a sunflower garden in our classroom!

Our Picture Book - Pukeko's A - Z School Travels

Room 4 have been busy writing narratives over the past 5 weeks. We have also been reading lots of picture books an fairy tales to get ideas for our narratives. One of the interesting picture books that inspired us was "Animalia" by Graeme Base - it is full of vivid language, alliteration and uses the A - Z writing format.

We used some of these ideas when creating our Feet First Picture Book based on safe travel to school.

Our main character is Pukeko (named after one of our school houses). He wants to get to Bird School in lots of different ways. Have a read and see what you think!

It is called "Pukeko's A - Z School Travels"
