Car Safety with Constable Gordon

Today Constable Gordon told us how to stay safe inside the car.
This is what you need to do:
- always sit in a booster seat.
- always wear your seat belt and make it click
- don't fight with your brothers or sisters when an adult is driving.

We went out and practised these things in Constable Gordon's POLICE CAR!!

We all had turns sitting in his car, with our seat belts on.
Some of us were lucky enough to speak on the loud speaker.

Constable Gordon flashed his lights and pressed the siren - it was very loud!

While we were waiting, we were allowed to try on some police uniforms.

We had a great morning!

Safe Walking

Today we learnt how to cross the road safely with a buddy.
We need to remember to:
- Stop
- Look 
- Listen
and always cross the road with an adult.
Constable Gordon show us how to do it the right way.

The last one was a tricky one, because a ute roared along the road. We waited until it had driven safely past.

Room 12 Class PE

Every Wednesday Room 12 has PE with Mr Smith.

He teaches us how to throw and catch balls, hit and kick balls and all sorts of sporting skills. We even learn games where we can put our skills to the test against one another and have a lot of fun.
Every odd week, the Year 1's have Junior Sport altogether. 

Musical Mondays!

Every Monday afternoon this term, Ms Laxon comes to our classroom to take music. We love playing the different instruments to the beat, singing and dancing!

Tuesday is Library Day


As a follow up from our shared book "Bubbles" we went outside to blow some of our own. We had so much fun blowing, chasing, catching and popping the bubbles as they went up, up, up!

Welcome to Room 12 


I can't believe we are already halfway through term one!
Everyone is settling into new routines and making new friendships.

Here is a little snippet of what we have been up to in the last 20 days:

Buddy Reading
Our buddy class is Room 19 - some of us are lucky because we have a sister or brother or cousin in Mrs Ngan's class! We spent some time with them reading our favourite books:

Growing Cress:
As part of our Inquiry, Rooms 11 and 12 grew some cress on Friday afternoon.

First we put cotton wool into a container

Next we watered it
Room 12 in cress!

Grow, grow, grow!

...and look what popped up on Monday morning ... CRESS!!

In a couple of weeks we can EAT it!
