End of term and end of book week...

Well today is the end of Term 1.  What an amazing way to end it with our Book Week Character Parade.  Our whole school joined up in one huge long line and snaked our way in and out of classrooms admiring the amazing efforts everyone had made decorating our doors and being surprised by the amazing book character costumes on display.

Here's our class this morning ...

Can you spot Violet Beauregarde (aka Alexis) dressed up as a blueberry (from Charlie and the Chocolate factory)? What about our unicorn (Rocco), Captain America (Bryan), Superman (Feo), Dracula (Carter), Periwinkle the fairy (Lily), Minli from Where the Mountain Meets the Moon (Nia), Jake from the Jake and the Neverland Pirates (Eshaan), Fancy Nancy (Mrs P), IronMan (Thomas), the witch from Hotel Transylvania (Megan), Elsa from Frozen (Michelle), Nala from The Lion King (Izzy), Tinkerbell 1 (Riley), Tinkerbell 2 (Isobelle),  a beautiful flower fairy (Sienna), Jasmine from Aladin (Alysha), the Fairy Godmother from Cinderella (Millie), a dashing cowboy (Kevin), Spiderman (Zhimeng) and The Lorax (Lukas) and Rawhiti?

What an awesome bunch of kids.  Thanks for all taking the effort to participate in our character dress-up day.

Our door turned out really well.  It's been a really interesting activity.  We've read The Lorax and talked about the messages in the story about how to look after our environment for future generations (sustainability).  For writing we wrote stories about what we could do to look after the environment.  We also made 'speech' bubbles for our people on the door, and learnt how to make pom-poms and turn them into trufulla trees! The students had collaged a mural of The Lorax that features on our door too. In B5 we speak for the trees...
Our fabulous Lorax door.  

Thank you to all the students of B5 for a great first term.  We've got to know one another and are working well as a group.  Our reading, writing, math is progressing and we love art, music and inquiry.  Thank you to the parents and caregivers who've helped out in class, taken an interest, read at night with their children and come along on trips.  We appreciate all you do.  Last but not least, thank you to our blog readers.  We look forward to you following our learning journey next term also.  Happy holidays!
