Term 1 Week 4 - Duathlon, an Author comes to school AND puppies visit Room 3!

What amazing weather we had on Tuesday! Perfect for our duathlon races. A HUGE well done to everyone for their great effort. There were lots of smiles and chatter about the events.
Thank you too to all those parents/whanau who were able to come and encourage our young athletes. It was fantastic to see such an awesome turn out.
Here are a few photos of the day - thanks to Mrs Woodford's photographic skills!

On Wednesday we had a visit from a real live author and illustrator, Stu Duval. See here for his website. He showed us how to use letters of the alphabet and numbers to make into different shapes and characters that could be used in story telling. He then told us a great story about a wee green book monster. He was very enthusiastic when telling us his stories and had our undivided attention!

As if that wasn't enough excitement for the week, Katy, Chloe's mum brought in her 3 puppies to show us. She told us all about caring for them.

Afterwards we shared our ideas and wrote this together:

Puppies eat biscuits and drink water. Puppies run and jump outside when they have had their injections. Puppies wear collars so people know where they live. They wear coats to be warm.
They bite and gnaw toys.
We need to brush puppies to keep them soft and bath them to keep them clean and smell nice.
