Week 9 Term 1 2017

Decorated Cookies!

This week we had to get creative and we decorated cookies. Mrs Finucane had some pictures that we could use to get inspired but most of us chose to make our own designs. 

The first group had to get the coloured icing ready for all of us to use but after that we just got creative. Being creative can also mean getting messy! Afterwards we wrote down what we thought about the experience . We are going to publish our writing next week.

This week we had to compare 2 types of Spaghetti and rate them. 

 After this we had to make a graph to help each person decide which spaghetti was best... Mrs Finucane's Spaghetti or Mr Watties Spaghetti.

Many of the children did not want to try Mrs Finucane's spaghetti at first...

but when they saw how good it was everyone had a try!

However, at the end 10 people liked Mrs F's best , 
2 thought both was good 
but 14 liked Mr Watties best! 

Maddison Liked Mrs F's ...Can you tell?
Week 7 Term 1 2017

This week we made Pancakes! We read the story about the pancake man and how he ran away from everyone, only to end up being eaten because he was too busy running!

Then we worked in groups to make pancakes. We had to put all the ingredients in and do the mixing before we cooked them.  At the end we were able to eat them .Yum!

Making Pancakes

 Tip one cup of flour into a bowl.

 Crack open one egg and tip in the yolk and the white.

Pour in some milk to make the batter.

 Mix all the ingredients together.

Add more milk and mix until the batter is pour-able.
Pour the batter into the pan. Be careful…it is hot!
                Watch for bubbles to form on the pancakes.

Now they are ready to flip. Cook until brown on both sides.

Now the best part…Lets eat!

Week 6 Term 1 2017

This week we had a celebration! We filled our bead jar and showed how we work as a team!
To celebrate we made "Frog in a Pond." 

 Tariqah made one especially for Mr Byers.It was the highlight of his day.

We decided that Celebrations often involve food. Sometimes we have to be part of the food preparation before we can celebrate. Here are some of the stories we wrote about our celebration...

Week 5 Term 1 2017

 Mrs Finucane really likes it when we bring unusual things to talk about during sharing.
Sahara brought this really unusual tomato from her garden to show us. It looks like a flower! We aren't sure what it would taste like but it is almost too pretty to eat!

It was a busy week at school. We had the portable ice rink set up in the Rec Centre and the PTA supported the children and allowed them to have a try during the week. Room 7 and 8 had their turn on Wednesday. We had a lot of fun although we fell over a lot!

Then on Thursday Stanley Avenue School had a Twilight Gala.
It was an awesome night. The weather was great, the activities were heaps of fun and there was lots of good food. 
Her are a couple of photos from the night ...

Jacob and Weston had a great time! And so did everyone else.

Welcome to 2017!

Room 7 is full of awesome year 2 students who have come back to school with big smiles and lots of excitement! We are still waiting for a couple of our students to return from holiday so when everyone is here we will post our first class photo.

Next  week we will  be talking about this poem, which is about RESPECT.
It outlines how we like to act in Room 7 and the things we need to do to... 

"Have a happy day!"
Really listen when someone is speaking.
Each person is special.
Say nice things to each other.
Play and work together nicely.
Everyone is part of our classroom team.
Children look after the things in their room.
Today is a great day to use our manners.
