Silent Reading

This is what silent reading on a rainy day looks like in our room.  Pretty comfy!
Today we got our new book boxes and filled them with books we want to read.   We are going to ask if we can bring books from home too, but they have to be books WE want to read. If we are allowed we need to name them.

We would also love some board games to play at lunchtime on rainy days if there are any lying about at home you aren't using and can donate.  
Ssshhhh! Back to reading. I got growled at for doing this and not silent reading! Bad Mrs Rolls.

Check This Out

Mr Tonkin showed us this great cycling video and I thought it was worth sharing with you.  The kids were 'wowed' and we had just watched the Growth Mindset video so we appreciated how long he would have had to challenge himself and persevere to get this good.


P.S.  Make sure you watch it to the end!

We also watched this clip about a boy who took advice and kept trying until he was happy with the result he got in his work.  The kids and I discussed the positive feedback he got and the fact that he took the advice and used it to make his work better.

Baking TIme

This afternoon we were helping get ready for the Fiesta that is on Saturday. 

Our job was to help make the sweets and treats. We made sherbert, peppermint lollies, swirls, truffles and much, much more!

It was lots of fun and we avoided the temptation to lick fingers! Well done us!

I will say though, that our class had a 'snowy' look to it when we finished!
