Room 16

Kiwis for Kiwi Project

Room 16 decided to support the fabulous Kiwis for Kiwi Project this term. On Friday 27th October we took time out from our busy classroom schedule to spend the morning creating Kiwi inspired biscuits. 

We used mallow puffs for bodies, icing for eyes and banana candy for beaks. Our creations were then sold at morning tea time with all proceeds from the biscuit sales going to the Kiwis for Kiwi Project. 

Well done to Matipo Primary as we raised over one thousand dollars for the Kiwis for Kiwi Project.

For inquiry learning this term we are investigating living things. Mrs Verney thought it would be a great idea for us to try to grow our own living thing so she collected lots of Little Gardens every time she went shopping.

We had great fun planting them and we were really surprised when some got really big fast. This meant we had to replant them so Mrs Verney bought us all a bigger pot which we were able to decorate.

Then some of us got to replant ours as they were big enough. We had loads of fun and hope they continue to grow.

Children are required to wear hats at morning tea and lunchtime during terms 1 & 4.        It is handy for the children to have a hat they can leave at school. 
It is a good idea for children to have a drink bottle to leave in their classroom.
Matipo has a no yoghurt policy (including squeezy pouches) due to the messy nature and smell when spilt on classroom carpets and in bags.
 Lost Property is displayed outside the staffroom in weeks 3, 6 & 9 of each term. Please name all clothes so  they can be returned to you.
 Please leave toys and special items at home.
