Keeping Safe in G.I.

Look at my police car in G.I. It is driving around looking for silly people and looking after all the good people who live in G.I.!! They make me feel safe. . . 
We are learning about whats going on in G.I. and this is one of my pictures.

By Jerahd, Room 4 (dictated to the teacher)

What's up G.I.?

"When I hear the ice-cream truck music playing it sounds like its saying "Come and get an ice-cream or 5!".  It is my favourite truck ever and I drew it because we are learning about what in the world is going on in G.I.   

My Dad used to give me ice-cream when he could, and now he's sitting up on the clouds with God and the angels watching me forever!", said Freedom. 

By Freedom, Room 4.

Room 4 doing the right thing - and a visitor from Room 17!

Kia ora tatou,

While Miss Wild was out doing the other part of her job some Room 4 kids, and a lovely visitor - Izac, were busy looking after our reliever Ms Stephenson. She was so pleased that she gave them a prize. . .

Jasmine said "I won because I said the right answer to a question" TeManea and Kennedy won because they did great writing about Harold and how he talked about eating vegetables and fruit.
"I chose healthy food from a group to show what you should eat - 3 times a week" said TeManea.
Izac drew a self-portrait and got an award for listening and doing the right thing!!

Teamwork building a castle. . .Room 4

Look at Jerahd, Giovanni and Kennedy working together to build a castle out of our duplo magnetic shapes!
Kennedy said "We made a castle because we wanted to make a castle like in the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk. I had a dream about the giant stomping his feet and saying Fe fi fo fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman. Be he alive, or, be he dead, I'll grind his bones to make my bread." Giovanni said "I have been dreaming about being a Prince and meeting a beautiful Princess like in the story Rapunzel!!"

I am a big girl.
