Eat Right, Be Bright

Today we went to watch a magic show called "Eat Right & Be Bright". Vas Kovalski was the Magician.

He taught us about the importance of eating healthy. Everyday we need to eat:

  • Fruit 
  • Vegetables
  • Grains
  • Protein
  • Dairy
If we eat well we will get all of the vitamins and minerals we need to be strong and healthy.

My favourite parts were the rabbit & pigeon tricks.

Russell Street School Buddy Olympics Day

Today was Olympics Buddy Day.  We spread out into two groups with our little buddies too.  Each group was a country.  Our country was the Netherlands and the rest of our class was Spain.  Lots of people dressed in their countries colours but we didn't today.  We were feeling excited.

First we had an opening ceremony where all the countries came together to go off to their first activity before rotating around to the other activities.  The activities we participated in were high jump, hockey, boat racing (Rowing), rhythmic dancing (ribbons), egg and spoon racing, hurdles, shot put, archery, horse riding, fencing,  soccer, ultimate paper, scissors, rock, hand ball and rugby.

Our first activity was the rowing.  We had to blow the boat to the other end of the water tray with a straw.  This was tricky but highly enjoyable.  We were proud of ourselves for giving it a try.

Our favourite activity was the horse riding.  It was sad when Cullen fell over and my buddy face planted because they got hurt.   They did think it was funny though. We really liked the races and it was a lot of fun.

We feel happy because it was a long great day and the activities were well planned.

Maths Day

Today for maths we did lots of activities comparing volume and mass.

My favourite activity was the tinfoil boats.  We had to make a boat out of one sheet of tin foil. I had a turn and then I helped Riley. His boat could hold up to 650g!

Blake's boat could hold 950g! The boats with a large flat surface could hold more than boats with a smaller surface area.

Maths - Volume

We have been learning to compare volumes of containers. We can do this by pouring rice from one container to the next. If rice is left over then we know that container is bigger than the one we are pouring into.

Week3 panekiretanga

This week we were focusing on having positive thoughts. Our thoughts become our words. Our words become our actions.

Today I showed Panekiretanga when I helped Blake & Cole. I don't normally play with Joe but today I did when I played in the tents with him.

Something that went wrong today was other people broke the block towers people hat made.

At lunchtime I will show excellence by playing with kids I don't usually play with.

I feel happy because playing with other people made me feel good.
