What is a community?

We have had another look at our ideas about community today.
Can you see how our ideas are changing?
We had lots more to say this time.
Our next post about this will show our ideas for some rules to answer the question, "Is it a community?"

Parachute Play

Parachute Play on PhotoPeach
In our class community we have to be good at working together. Playing with the parachute is a good way for us to practice this.

"Smile!" said Ms Donnell on PhotoPeach
We've been reading "Smile!" said Dad by Jane Buxton. We have made a story about us, using Jane Buxton's ideas.

At the beach with my family

Read our stories about the fun we have with our family at the beach.

Our tadpoles

We have ten tadpoles in our classroom. They are eating lots and growing big. Nearly all the oxygen weed has gone because the tadpoles have been eating it. This morning when we came to school, Abby saw that one tadpole has two big back legs.
On Friday we made frog puppets.
We learned to fold paper to make a w.
We learned how to use the glue so it doesn’t make a big blob!
Our puppets are fun to play with.
It is fun having tadpoles in our classroom.
On Tuesday Santana fed the tadpoles some special tadpole food. They liked it a lot.
